How To Promote A Live Grenade.

by The Legendary Pink Dots

For the serious Dots connoisseur ,we include here The Dots' part in the infamous "Shed Sounds Sampler" ,which was a promotional cassette issued by In-Phaze Records back in 1983. Essentially this was a fabulous cut-up of "Curse" created by label boss (and engineer extraordinaire) Pat Bermingham. Pat owned an 8-track console (bought from Pink Floyd's Nick Mason) and he was simply a master of the controls.This was incidentally Cevin Key's introduction to the Pink Dots and it intrigued him enough to seek contact with EK- we all know what happened next...
Also here is the bizarre and epic LPDs' side of "Tryst 7" (or at least one of the mixes...I believe there were two).This beast saw a frightening meeting of minds with Big City Orchestra and LPDs creating the' collage to end ALL collages.Every copy of this cassette which emerged was unique, but all spewed out a mountain of chaos on the carpet once the unwary purchaser dared to open that plastic bag.
Yes we now live in the digital age...a TIDIER age...but somewhere I miss that sheer chaos..EK
