Looking forward to the day when the RED with back cover image T -shirt will be re-stocked. My old one has seen its last days unfortunately. As it faded to a dark grey from its original black, it just looked and felt better and better.
turntables / wall plaques 2

Hi there, I am Max, the author (together with my wife Sam) of the two turntables. I have always been fascinated by logos in general and that is one of the reasons I have chosen those two covers for our turntable projeKCts. For the LTIA one I decided for a "professional" approach when it was time to create the mat; so I asked a company to print the logo on a plastic material called Forex (used for posters, plaques, etc.). Forex is quite rigid but can be easily cut. I ordered two copies of the digital print (around 35 euros for both) and I think I will use the second one for a wall clock. This could be another idea for the DGM merchandise area.
Starless Box Set

Ordered mine from Spin in Newcastle (cheapest online) and it arrived yesterday.
My ears are thrumming and buzzing at the gloriousness of it. A feast for the eyes too
Starless Box Set

Have all the Starless box sets been mailed out? I am eagerly awaiting mine to arrive (Gresham, Oregon).
Hi there Dan,
It all depends on who you ordered it from. If you went via Inner Knot or another US based retailer then it'll be another week or so as the stock, which is shipping from Europe, has to clear customs,etc. Rest assured your American-based retailer is very keen to ship your order. If you bought it from Burning Shed or another European-based retailer then it's arrival is imminent.

I donít know if RF remembers me but I joined around 2007 when I heard crim and kept nagging RF to rejoin the band and stop writing diaries to which I got a lot of sarcastic responses by him. The band rejoined in 2008 to play a few shows which I was most eager to see but could not go to as I lived up in Canada. Well its 2014 and I decided to save the money and drive down to see them in Albany.
It felt stupid driving six hours just to see a band but on the way back I couldnt have been more content. I was pissed at the decision for excluding Belew and brining back horns, it felt like such as step back as I really thought the guitar only approach was a step forward in Crims music. Also I wasnít a big fan of Jakko, sure he was talented didnít think he was Crim material as Adrian Belew is one of the few few few musicians who can transcend generations, from Bowie to Zappa to NIN and Porcupine Tree.
Again Fripp proved me wrong with his choice and it made perfect sense seeing the band live, this show never felt like a regurgitation of hits or trying to be hip and young again as KC has always managed to stay relevant. These shows felt like a celebration of KCís music and its philosophy from the old from the new, couldnít have asked for a more perfect and varied setlist, although it would have been interesting to see a few more renditions of 80s and 90s material. Regardless I felt privileged to hear One More Red Nightmare and Starless being played live infront of audiences for the first time and in over 40 years respectively. Both Jakko and Mel were perfect, I feared they would take over the music to much but like everyone in the band they were only in service to the music. Horns and flutes added nice touches to THE Construkction of Light. Although the Red drumbeat and flute in the solo did not strike as big of a chord to me. Jakko proved to be a capable guitarist doing hte fast runs on LTPA and thank god he didnít sing Adrianís part as it doesnít suit his personality, as a lot of Kcrim material doesnít suit Adeís American demeanor.
Canít thank Fripp enought for this moment, you can go back to writing your boring diaries and winning lawsuits again :)
the other live shows?

So, who else is going to see Stick Men and/or Adrian Belew Power Trio?
2014 Tour Downloads
:: Posted by UnusualMuse on October 21, 2014
I was fortunate to be present (both literally and, to at least some degree, figuratively) at the first San Francisco show... and it was incredible. Having thoroughly enjoyed the experience of "recording with my eyes and ears," now that that experience has passed I would love having a document of that very enjoyable performance, any and all clams and warts included and welcomed. I have heard that the second night in SF had some technical difficulties that actually resulted in an interesting on-the-fly adaptation by Mr. Levin that I, as a bassist, would love to hear. I should add: In addition to a desire to respect the wishes of the performers, the "being a present witness/participant" aspect of the evening was aided by the knowledge that I would be able to purchase a download of the eveningís performance at some later date; I certainly hope that will be the case.

Very good alternative solution for LoMD-Mincer-LoMD!
levin's concert photography
:: Posted by johannes on October 21, 2014
In the words of Blake, "He who binds to himself a joy/Does the winged life destroy." Who can say whether the applause at the end of the King Crimson concerts might have resulted in something truly remarkable if Tony Levin had resisted the impulse to "capture" the images of the audience with his camera? Sadly, now we will never know.
Perhaps a salutary lesson might be given if, the next time Levinís flash goes off from the stage, the audients would suddenly cease their uproar and silently file from the concert hall?
(Sorry, couldnít resist...)
You're forgetting of course that Tony has the photo pass
