1984.A time of high drama in The Pink Dots. VPRO Radio invited the band to create a side of this album in a top studio in Hilversum, The Netherlands while the live side was captured by a state-of-the-art multi-track recorder at The Melkweg in Amsterdam.At the end of the year ,EK relocated to The Netherlands to spend as much time with Marylou as he could.
A perfect scenario? Alas, no……A falling out with the Ding Dong label saw "The Lovers" released initially without the band's permission. EK fled from the label's hq in Arnhem to spend a few months on a friend's floor in Amsterdam. For a while chaos reigned supreme ,and the album that followed ("Asylum") represented a complete departure from the glossy production that can be heard here.
