Wow, I'm stunned. Someone else who's heard of the Dots?

I saw the Legendary Pink Dots in concert back in college. Not because I especially liked their music, mind you, but because my boyfriend at the time did. The not-lead-singer dude played a theramin. Oh, and there was one song that lasted for like 20 minutes while the lead singer gave us this odd reinterpretation of the Garden of Eden story. It was pretty interesting overall.

I only know about them because of Pooka.

I've talked to, like, one other person who has ever heard of them, and that was on a music-themed message board.

I have heard of them, too, but never went to a concert of theirs.

Hang on a sec... Pooka grew up in the Metroplex, right? Was it in Richardson, by any chance?

I heard, "She complicated, left me immune to life"
The song lyrics are, "She caught the Katy, left me a mule to ride"

Which is far less likely than my guess!

I'm from Houston, but then I moved to FTW... but... I got around... why?

I saw the Dots at Trees in the 90's. I was sitting... get this... ON the stage and had the privlidge of Ka-Spell's hot rank breath on me on several occasions. It was a proud night for me.

Just thinking you might have ended up with an interest in the Dots by knowing the same people I did. They went to high school in Richardson, class of '97. My one ex-boyfriend would have given anything for Ka-Spel's hot rank breath on him.

Probably not. I didn't know anyone at the time that would have graduated highschool after ohhh about 1994.

The fella that introducted me to them in the late 80's moved to South FTW from NYC. However... many years later I met my ex-husband and his friends who were about 7-10 years older... there might have been one or two from North Dallas, but would all have been out of Highschool since the mid to late 80's.
