The Legendary Pink Dots: “Catch A Match. A Bang Bang. A Flashing Fist O’crackerjack. A Smack. Alick. A Char Char. You’re All Burned Out.” (Chemical Playschool 8, Terminal Kaleidoscope 1995)
LPD released this oddly infectious nugget of weirdness as part of the sprawling Chemical Playschool 8 & 9 double CD release in 1995, at the peak of my fascination with them. It was also perhaps the last period of their massive repertoire that really blew my mind, consistently weird, engaging, innovative and uncompromising. They continue to release interesting music even still, but there’s something truly magical about their stuff from the early to mid 80s through the late 90s.
