You always remember exactly where you were when a World changing event occurs.
September 11, 2001. I felt good after writing and recording a song entitled “The Warden” and decided to treat myself to a small break by listening to the news on the radio. I tuned in as the second plane crashed into the twin towers in far-off New York…
The next song I wrote was “12th”, a day later. It was an attempt to bring some kind of calm to a growing unease inside me that maybe we were all about to be witnesses to the end of the World.
In the rarefied World of the Pink Dots, an urgency took hold which resulted in the the twin albums, “All The King’s Horses” and “All The King’s Men” in 2002. Both are heavily featured in the collection presented here and, for me, represent our finest hours in a turbulent decade for the band.
Matters reached a head in 2009 when half of the band quit to pursue their own projects, but happily The Legendary Pink Dots is an enduring institution. If the planet can withstand a trauma like 9/ 11, then a small band of troubadours can battle through a few sad line-up changes.
“A String of Zeroes “ is the second of four volumes representing decades of The Dots. This one is dedicated to dear friends who played their parts and moved on to pastures anew.
