Edward Ka-Spel (born Edward Francis Sharp, 23 January 1954 in London) is an English singer/songwriter and musician. He is best known for his work with the band The Legendary Pink Dots, which he co-founded in 1980.
He has a discography of over 80 solo-titles and 118 published works with The Legendary Pink Dots. His work spans a wide terrain from psychedelic underground popmusic to more serious electronic music, but always in a highly distinguishable style.

A Spoken Word Piece by Edward Ka-spel.

ON THE REBOUND

I looked in the mirror and saw healthy colour in my cheeks. Even the wrinkles seemed to be disappearing although those laugh lines stuck around for a while.
“It gets better,” they all said. And it did until the first problem appeared in the form of a letter from someone called Rosemary.
This Rosemary accused me of cheating her out of her precious possessions and threatened me with a lawyer.
I would have written her off as a lunatic if the handwriting hadn’t seemed so worryingly familiar. Rosemary….Rosemary….the name nagged me as the letters increased in number and ferocity. Then, one day, Rosemary turned up on the doorstep with suitcases, and scowled at me as she stormed upstairs before emptying her things all over my bed.
I just accepted it too. Wordlessly, like a puppy I moved downstairs and did my best to avoid her, though this became harder and harder as time passed.
Sometimes Jake and a rather beautiful young lady named Amber, who was apparently my daughter, would come to visit.
Jake would talk to me about compromise and communication while Amber tended to ignore me at first, preferring to talk to Rosemary upstairs.
The odd thing is that I began to connect to Rosemary after a while. Her anger seemed to subside, and I began to wish for a surprise meeting in the kitchen.

THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS ~ 8118

LP
Original Artwork by Philip Knight
Signed by Philip Knight
Numbered edition of 40 ex.
d’or016
Date of Release: 15 July 2018

The Legendary Pink Dots project 8118 consists of two side-long pieces by founding members Edward Ka-Spel and Philip Knight,based around the theme – “Reflection”.

The 81 side: “Reflections in Pink” begins with unreleased LPD recordings made during sessions (1981 into 1982) for “Surprise Surprise”…..and concludes with Premonition 10’s
harmonium improvisation.

The 18 side: Also released for the first time, “Fragments of Blue” (2018) is a slow movement of unfolding tones, pneumatic wheezing and disembodied voice.

Each LP has it’s own unique front cover artwork, designed by Philip Knight from original photography by Astrid Mutsaars. Included also is an insert, and each LP copy comes signed and numbered.

“As a footnote – it’s 37 years since the Premonition 10 harmonium improvisation was recorded above a car parts shop in Walthamstow, London E.17, and neither Edward or I can remember anymore who played the percussion parts – our best guess is that it was bass player Roland Callaway.
Sadly the “big beast” harmonium never made the LPD move to the Netherlands in the late-80’s – it found instead a new home at Hamster Records.” Phil Knight. 15 Juli 2018
