Tired Eyes Slowly Burning


The first collaboration between the Legendary Pink Dots founder Edward Ka-Spel and Skinny Puppy’s cEvin Key followed a 1987 tour where Ka-Spel opened for Key’s group, and the resulting combination proved to be an excellent balance of aesthetics. With Key’s work further fleshed out by Dwayne Goettel, Bill Leeb and even Nivek Ogre on one track, sonically it has the impact of late 80s Skinny Puppy, heavy drum punches and an air of fraying chaos, with Ka-Spel’s lyrical invocations and surreal poetry adding strange airs to “Coma,” “Deja Vu” and “You and Me and Rainbows.”
