The Legendary Pink Dots (LPD) are an Anglo-Dutch experimental rock band formed in London in August 1980. In 1984, the band moved to Amsterdam, playing with rotating musicians and having, as core members, singer/songwriter/keyboardist Edward Ka-Spel and keyboardist Phil Knight. As of 2012, the group is composed of Edward Ka-Spel (vocals, keyboards, songwriter), Phil Knight (keyboards, electronics), Erik Drost (guitars) and Joep Hendrickx (live sound engineer).
Although outside the mainstream, LPD have released more than 40 albums, have a devoted worldwide following, and tour frequently.
“Rarely does an artist make a deep sense of uncertainty seem like a powerful creative statement but that’s what Randall Frazier has done throughout his time making music with his long standing project Orbit Service. The luminous haze drifting through each song is punctuated by organic, measured beats that render Frazier’s existential musings into psycho-spiritual couplets to ease the mind into a Zen-like state of acceptance of uncertainty. Rather than despair at not having ultimate and solid answers to big questions, Randall Frazier once again seems to articulate so well how it’s important not to get bogged down by thinking you can attain even a persistent wisdom and enlightenment when your life and the world is in a constant state of change.”
