Orders with multiple pre-orders will be sent as one order, when all of the items in the order are available.

PAYMENT WILL BE TAKEN WHEN YOU COMPLETE CHECKOUT.

This book documents The Legendary Pink Dots’ first decade in all its despair and glory, and comes with a compilation CD including two previously unreleased songs. The book contains a year-by-year written history of the band’s early years, supplemented with extensive photos from the time, and includes an illustrated discography (inevitably but understandably labeled a “Dotsography”)

148 pages, hardcover with CD (not a CDR!)

The compact disc that comes with this book features the Dots’ handpicked favourite tracks from the 1980s.
