The Legendary Pink Dots is an Anglo-Dutch experimental rock band formed in London in August 1980. In 1984 the band moved to Amsterdam, playing with rotating musicians and having, as core members, singer/songwriter/keyboardist Edward Ka-Spel and keyboardist Phil Knight. As of 2012, the group is composed of Edward Ka-Spel (vocals, keyboards, songwriter), Phil Knight (keyboards, electronics), Erik Drost (guitars) and Raymond Steeg (live sound engineer).

Although outside the mainstream (in terms of their music and career path), LPD have released more than 40 albums, have a devoted worldwide following, and tour frequently.

The band was originally called "One Day..." but subsequently changed the name to The Legendary Pink Dots, apparently inspired by pink dots on certain keys of the band's main recording studio piano.[citation needed]

In the 1980s the band released albums on Mirrodot and InPhaze; in 1985 they signed with Play It Again Sam for the release of The Lovers. The line-up had become stable by 1988, with Niels van Hoornblower (horns) and Bob Pistoor (guitar) joining in time for the band's 1988 US tour. Pistoor died of cancer and his place was filled by Martijn de Kleer; drummer Ryan Moore completed the line-up live and in the studio. Their appeal has always been relatively small—a 1995 show in Mexico in front of 2,500 fans was described as "massive (by Dots' standards)".

Their music touches on elements of neo-psychedelia, ambient music, electronic music, tape music, industrial, psychedelic folk, synthpop, post-punk, progressive, jazz, noise, pop, and goth rock, with a distinctly experimental/avant-garde bent; their sound has evolved over time and remains distinctive, making it difficult to place the group into a concise style or genre. The group's overall sound combined with Ka-Spel's distinct lyrics and singing have earned comparisons to Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett; the group also has links to the sounds of krautrock bands such as Can,Faust, Brainticket, Magma or Neu!

Wyatt E. writes the soundtrack of a fantasised Orient. A travel in the past which leads to ancient Gods, forgotten cities and lost civilisations.

A set of six records is planned to accompany this pilgrimage where reality merges into fantasy.

Mount Sinai/Aswan was the first episode of the journey. It has been released in May 2015 and has been formerly played live a few times only.

In September 2017 Wyatt E. released Exile to Beyn Neharot on Israeli label Shalosh Cult. The album received a critical acclaim from specialised press and blogs from all over the world. They're touring all across Europe and Middle East since then.

VaathV is a solo project of Meditative Drone from Sambreville. The artist explores the universe of Ambient music through sounds from ancestral temples.
