@LiquidSheep That's really awkward... I mean, Dutch people look like a nation who can totally embrace avant-garde and psychedelic music. It's just strange how LPD have an enormous discography, quality music and long existence, yet even their base country doesn't really know about them. WAT
To get back on this: I've been listening to the Dots frequently for about half a year now and have recommended them to lots of people in the meantime. I know some people from Nijmegen, where they are based, and even they seem to be completely oblivious to this band.
I find it interesting that these guys are based (or have been for a long time?) in my country, yet I've never, ever, heard someone talk about them here -- and I talk to a lot of musicians. Not too big on their music, personally, but they surely have an impressive body of work.
The Legendary Pink Dots are 1 of 278 artists who are similar to my own artist's [url=http://www.last.fm/user/Erkan-Yilmaz/journal/2014/08/11/66y9kq_1st_album:_%22maestro_2014%22_(violin_edition)]1st violin album[/url] (based on "similar tracks"). I'd appreciate feedback by you. The research is available in the [url=http://www.last.fm/group/EYRS/forum/1303793/_/2254409]EYRS[/url] group.

Explore rest of LPD discography, starting from Maria Dimension and Any Day Now (Malachai too, but this one has some noise thrown in). From other artists Tim Buckley comes to mind - try Starsailor and Lorca. Swans "Soundtracks for the Blind". Tuxedomoon "Half Mute". Mercury Rev "Yerself Is Steam". Supreme Dicks "Emotional Plague" etc
Dear fans of LPD, I need your help. I listened to the Crushed Velvet Apocalypse and was truly fascinated by its truly bizarre and genial mixture of genres I couldn't imagine before. Now I'm searching for the similar music (no matter, other LPD albums or other bands) which contains the same genre elements (goth/ambient/art rock/folk/jazz etc) and would be similarly mind-blowing, and, if it is probably, without noise elements. Thank you beforehand, good men and women, for recommending something like this.
hey guys, i know this is a long shot, but there was this LPD song i liked a while ago that i'm trying to find again. it was a short (maybe around 2 mins), synth-pop/electronic song that was quite lo-fi, possibly released on a cassette. it's not any of the premonitions cause i already checked those out. oh, how i wish i could just find it!
