I may have missed it, but was a winner announced for the Acronym Contest that was announced by Inner Knot in a Frequent Flier email (using the initials of each of the KC8 members in a phrase/sentence)? Of course, I think my entry was the best and want to collect the prize. :-D -Tony
that was a competition run by Inner Knot, the folks who run the US mail order rather than DGMLive.

From the RF interview at
Do you think John Lennon lied for money? Dylan? Hendrix? When we lose faith in our artists, our culture is extinguished.
The Dylan inclusion is most unfortunate.
Re: Bruford Drum Question
:: Posted by mutant on October 29, 2014
I think the only real noticeable change to Brufordís kit during this period was perhaps switching the clear acrylic Dragon Drums for black Tama Octobans. Simmons electronic drums however had fundamental changes around this time, from the early models which used carpal tunnel inducing hard plastic instead of rubber. I even think he was possibly using a Simmons hi-hat on a few tunes like Heartbeat maybe, but I could be wrong.

Saw Stickmen in Milwaukee on Monday. If you get a chance to see them on their tour make sure to do so. Wonderfully intense show. With Pat doing drums and samples and Tony and Markus doing stick you get about five-six persons worth of music with only 3 people on stage.
For the Crimson fans they covered VROOM VROOM, Sartori in Tangier (never thought Iíd see that live), and close with Larkís II. They even played Robert Frippís Breathless.
Of course the show was about their original music which is a load of fun and varies from stuff that sounds like the spiritual successor to Discipline to knuckle dragging hard rock (Big dog!). I must say my favorite had to be íSoupí. For me, as someone not that knowledgeable of Stickmen material (I really went to see Tony and Pat up close) it was pretty easy to get into. They did a 5-10 minute improv that was simply divine and showcased how in sync with each other these musicians are.
Worth the entry fee and best of all they come out to the audience after the show to chat, take photos, and sign stuff. Wonderfully nice people willing to talk about those nerdy music details we all love.

Hello - sorry if this has been asked before but, as someone who thinks everything sounds better on Vinyl, and with all this archiving activity going on, any chance we might finally see vinyl versions of these digital-only classics? As far as I know, these are the only official KC releases NOT on vinyl, no?
Thrak (and the Vroooom EP I reckon)
Be Happy with what you have...etc.

Forty-three years ago tonight, at the now demolished Capitol Theatre in Cardiff, I saw my first ever King Crimson concert. The first song they played was Cirkus. What a night that was. Thank you Crim for all the music.

Let me guess, "Disco Sucks" right?
Ever listen to the Talking Heads? Or Tom Tom Club (James Brown mentioned by Chris Franz in Genius of love)
I think this Kids in the Hall dialogue sums it all up:
Mr. Gorgenchuck: Now thatís just where youíre wrong Bobby. Recent studies show that rock and roll is, in fact, dying.
Mr. Gorgenchuck: Popular music has been on the wane since 1974, the year of the first Bad Company release.
Bobby: I have that album.
Mr. Gorgenchuck: Ha ha ha, of course you do Bob. You see poor live performances by the likes of Chuck Berry and even Jerry Lee Lewis are destroying the music that they allege to celebrate. And tests show that a Beach Boys concert is a very sad thing. This coupled with the growing interest in ethnic music has undermined the support base of the music that you and your friends love.
Mr. Gorgenchuck: Letís see if I canít put this into terms youíll understand. Say you had 12 beer.
Bobby: Oh, okay all right!
Mr. Gorgenchuck: All right! Now letís say that four of those beer represent the Pogues, another six represent the Gypsy Kings, and one beer is shared by The Chieftains and Lady Smith Black Mombaza.
Bobby: Hold it, that only leaves one beer. Iíll never get drunk on one beer!
Mr Gorgenchuck: Exactly Bob. But learn to nurse that beer and before you know it, youíll be loving jazz!
