The first date on the Frippertronics European tour was captured on this excellent quality audience recording. You’ll hear coughs, shuffles, camera shutters snapping, strings plucked and foot-switches clicking - oh and some warm slabs of intense guitar music. Reviewing a Frippertronics in London gig eleven days previously, Melody Maker’s Allan Jones offerered this observation: “The audience was clustered close around Fripp...They could see him playing; they could, more revealingly, see him *thinking* about what he was playing. They could observe his manipulation of technical effects and devices. The entire process of making music was thus demystified.” The demonically rasping de-tuned section towards the end of the fourth piece is pretty hair-raising stuff.
