I spent so long without finding another Eyeless in Gaza fan, I began to think I'd hallucinated the band.

Thanks for sharing recommendations, all--I have six LPD and related CDs, which makes me feel like a beginner! And now I get to check out Eyeless in Gaza... :sb:

The Dots are old friends of mine. I first saw Edward's solo gig opening for Skinny Puppy back in 1987 (egads. 22 years ago!), and we befriended the Dots on their first US tour a couple of years later (as a three piece). They stayed over at our place on a couple of the early tours and we hung out quite a bit, going to a number of shows, driving to the Grand Canyon, record shopping together (Edward bought me my first Magma album). We haven't been in touch over the past few years, but we share a label (beta-lactam ring records). I built Edward a theremin yonks ago (after he saw me play mine during an opening slot for LPD).

LPD collectors have probably seen some of my illustration in various Dots vinyl releases. I did the poster that came with the vinyl of "Perfect Mystery" (art and printing) and the gatefold and back cover of Edward's "O'er a Shalabaster Tyde". I printed the sleeves and stickers for the Perfect Mystery vinyl, too. Also, did a neat t-shirt art/print and insert for "Absence of Evidence".

I've watched their gear change over the decades. From Ensoniq and Alpha-Junos to K2000, Wavestation and MS-10/20 to MS2000 and V-Synth.

I've always dug what they do. My favorites are Edward's solo "Eyes China Doll" and LPD's "Shadow Weaver, pt 1" and Asylum. I've got quite a few rarities, including a number of extra copies of the vinyl of A Perfect Mystery (anyone wants a copy, let me know. I have around a dozen of them left).

I've seen dozens of LPD shows. The absolute best ever I saw was the first show they did in Denver, at the Mercury Cafe back when
"From Here You'll Watch The World Go By". Truly immense performance (and a great album).
I have that on vinyl and still have the t-shirt!
I make UnderBridge for the Elektron Analog Keys. https://youtu.be/dowAKQkFAE0

I remember picking up Any Day Now out of a whim in the late 80's. This was on a class trip to Stockholm, i had money for just 1 album and i was super into bands like Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk but i wanted to find other synth bands (which could be quite difficult at the time, very little info and even quite hard to even find these, at the time, "alternative" bands in stores, unless you went to a bigger city). Anyways, it was in the "Synth" section so i just went for it and hoped for best.

The music really surprised me and didn't grab me at first, i found it really odd and not similar to e.g Kraftwerk or DM.. but this was back when you couldn't just click "next", it really paid off to listen to it multiple times, to this date one of my favorite albums. It's somewhat hard to listen to these days, i find it too emotional, doesn't bring BAD feelings but overwhelming ones that i'm bad at handling i guess.
