Your Children Placate You From Premature Graves is the Legendary Pink Dots’ 25th anniversary album (and in the running for best album title ever). It’s hard to believe a quarter century has passed since the Pink Dots first unearthed their complex vision where fate and whimsy cast stones at each other on some hazy, polluted playground. LPD’s unusual legacy of psychedelia, industrial gloom, and textural madness has made them a constant presence on the innovative fringes of cult music, and has earned them near-universal respect from critics and peers. It was this legacy that shaped much of the album: The actual theme of "legacy", "the consequence of past and present action on the future", has consciously informed much of this release. In some ways, it's been a central-core-theme of all our songwriting these last 25 years. – Phil ‘The Silverman’ Knight Twenty-five years later, the Dots have hardly paused for a breath. Edward Ka-Spel, The Silverman and company (Niels Van Hoornblower, Raymond Steeg & returning member Martijn de Kleer), still make boundlessly weird, beautifully disturbing music.
