Experimental, post-punk, industrial, and neo-psychedelia have all come into play over The Legendary Pink Dots prolific career. September 14th, their Year 33 Tour lands at the Rickshaw.
The Pink Dots are up to around 50 or 60 albums by now but information as to the exact number is sketchy, however, thankfully the passion has not been dampened.
“The Gethsemane Option” has been a year in the making. The finger over the “c” has strayed and the helpless listener is now pelted with intricate melodies, runaway rhythms, Thelonius chords. The lyrics are still as obscure as ever and it’s whispered that the new album revolves around a central concept, but singer and wordsmith Edward Ka-Spel is saying nothing about that. Concept albums were already passe in the 80s. It’s 2013. The World has changed. No big red buttons, just passwords for passwords for passwords and nobody will find a way through that complicated labyrinth, will they?
