LIMITED NUMBERED EDITION IN PURPLE BAG, WITH POSTCARDS AND DIE-STRUCK METAL LAPEL PIN.
The Legendary Pink Dots originally released “The Crushed Velvet Apocalypse” in 1990, sandwiched between the highly acclaimed albums “The Golden Age” and “The Maria Dimension”. Critics may differ, but fans generally consider this period to be the band’s creative peak, an opinion that is backed up by solid and steady sales of the back catalog.
“The Crushed Velvet Apocalypse” is an intoxicating blend of rock and psychedelia, seasoned with a touch whimsy, simultaneously engaging and memorable. Two decades on the music stands unblemished, timeless, enduring, and vital.
For this reissue the music has been remastered by the Dots’ soundman Raymond Steeg, and the CD booklet has been reworked and expanded.
