Gregg Russell How does one decribe the sound of A Scarlet Wish?
Intense? Haunting? Vast?
I don't know how to describe it. I just love it. Favorite track: A Scarlet Wish.

RTW A little different from the other CP albums, people like this one for its stadium-sized gloom. The Dots were a huge concert draw at this time, and seemed to be taking up the slack left by the lazy Robert Smith and the Cure, who were out of commission for most of the late '90s. "A Scarlet Wish" (a Cure title if ever there was one) and "The Man with the Cut-Glass Heart" are both dramatic, huge-sounding songs with some of EK's best singing. Favorite track: The Man with the Cut-glass Heart.

John Lithium Very strong collection of material originating from "9 Lives" and "Shadow Weaver" sessions. "Glasshouse" is one of my top ten favorite songs by Edward Ka-Spel. Favorite track: Glasshouse.

about

CHEMICAL PLAYSCHOOL 10 .1997.
When the Legendary Pink Dots first showed their faces way back in 1980 2 cassette releases were prepared. There was "Only Dreaming" which had a number of songs you could hum along with together with a few seriously "out-there" moments, and there was "Chemical Playschool" which was so out there , extra-terrestials phoned and complained about a lack of space.
Most of that second cassette emerged on the 3 hour special "Chemical Playschool 1 & 2" but it planted the idea that here was a platform to really allow the Dots to let their hair down.
We're about to hit Volume 15 and we're still enjoying these strange journeys.
Number 10 was special .It collected many unfinished wig-outs from the "9 Lives " and "Shadow Weaver" sessions and combined them with homeless Ka-Spellian
songs .The wig-outs were "finished " by EK , who created the voyage which is about as psychedelic as the Dots can get.
Remastering is quite subtle here as the original master sounded very decent.
The magnificent artwork was provided by Yol.

. 
Can this be the escape hatch from the Hallway? 
There she is, as beautiful as the first day I saw her.
