With the help of Nurse With Wound mainman Steven Stapleton on "tapes, piano, and inspiration," Ka-Spel collaborated with t Patrick Wright on Chyekk China Doll, a worthy entry in Ka-Spel's lengthy, involved series of solo works. As with most of his solo work, the artist moves sideways from the collapsing, queasy anarchy of the Legendary Pink Dots for a quieter but no less freaky combination.

Edward Ka-Spel's albums are rarely cheery, but Eyes! China Doll is particularly dark and filled with religious fanatics, haunted hotels, deformed infants, and a dead pet shop owner. Ka-Spel and producer Hero Wouters handle most instruments throughout the album, with Neel Holst and Matthieu Keizer adding sax and marimba on one track each.
