EDWARD KA-SPEL is the charismatic frontman of The Legendary Pink Dots. He is also a permanent member of The Tear Garden and Mimir, infrequently collaborates with Nurse With Wound, and released many solo outputs since the early eighties.
Recently published as a book ('Love and loud Colours') his 'Edwardian' writings belong to the most original, phantastic and captivating lyrics in popmusic.
Edward Ka-Spel has built an international following with his dark, psychedelic-folk melodies and astute lyrics, first as the enigmatic and prolific founder/lead singer of London-cum-Netherlands-based band the Legendary Pink Dots and then also as a solo recording artist and performer. Ka-Spel is widely regarded as a genius bordering on madness, which explains the frequent comparisons to Syd Barrett, the first singer of Pink Floyd. Since the Legendary Pink Dots' beginning in 1980, Ka-Spel has created an extensive personal mythology, like Current 93 or Psychic TV, and has created several ongoing narratives of love, chaos, destruction, and other darkly tinged topics.
