The Legendary Pink Dots, "10 To The Power Of 9 (Volume 1)"

10 To The Power Of 9 (Volume 1)-a trailer cover artThe story went like this…….

"There are 10 people who run the World. They are exclusively male, and presidents, magnates, and high priests all do their bidding. The 10 live in villas in the remotest part of the Himalayas—a place that absolutely NO-ONE would ever stumble upon. Although the 10 live in such close proximity to each other, they choose to have meetings in the back room of a small office in London. That's where the  decisions are made. That's where the wars begin, that's where the dice are tossed across the table to establish who wins, who loses, who lives, who dies."


The classic conspiracy theory to end them all and I listened, open-mouthed, hair falling into my eyes . It was maybe 1976 when I heard this first.

You are right to snigger at my naivety. I listened and twisted this story around inside my head, and it did indeed seem completely unbelievable.

Now of course it's 2014, and I'm older and wiser and I have to laugh at myself too. Now I know wasn't a theory. Now I know it's true.  EK

Uploaded here is merely a trailer for Volume 1, due out as a glorious slab of vinyl from the Rustblade label on 27 June 2014.
