A truly superior recording of The Dots in full flight at Amsterdam's Melkweg venue in 1994.Oddly, despite a sizeable turnout and a lively performance ,the night marked the end of The Dots' close relationship with
the club which dated back a whole decade.
In fact it marked the end of The Dots' connection with VPRO Radio too ,who recorded and later broadcasted the show.That was also a relationship that stretched back for years.
From the band's point it felt as if their adopted country had literally declared them redundant and had rather cynically dispatched them, and it's fair to say that things were never quite the same in The Netherlands for the Dots again.
This cd was released for The Dots' US tour in 2000 by Soleilmoon Records.

A big thank you to `Marylou who made this event happen.
Jean Jacques Birge is an artist with a history so rich with good music, it's possible to forget that there's life outside this submarine. Hours of deep listening await the curious listener. Legendary Pink Dots
