A venture into familiar territory.

Iím getting a bit weary of all this rat-tatty-tat drumming; like ball bearings on a metal tea tray.
Give me a real beat!
Completism and Earthbound
:: Posted by albemuth on June 30, 2014
I was pretty excited when I found Earthbound in a record bin in 1973. But, although it has its moments here and there, even today I would say it is only for completists. Other recordings of this version of KC, released only relatively recently by DGM, show that this band was interesting. But not Earthbound. Not much. Bozís scat singing is something I would like to forget. Itís nice that Boz wanted to mimic American blues and jazz artists (and join Alexis Kornerís band late in the game). But thatís not what made KC great, that is for sure.
CONCERNING: LARKS' TONGUES IN ASPIC #5

I guess that the above title would be used for a new KC#8 composition if it was felt that it had some musical link with any of the previous parts. If it did not then clearly a completely new title would be used. Just because a piece is called, "LTiA #5" it does not automatically mean it is, íold,í or, ídated,í music.
new down load of the new crim.

The drums were to weak.fripp & Tony donít sound great at all.Sounds like the thrak album.I really tried to have an open mind with this down load.The drums were way to weak man come on."I did not like this line up from the start weak very weak.

Scatting is the purest form of improvisation there is. The very first manifestation of music was "scatting".
I offer no commentary on Earthbound other than it is what it is, improvisation over some familiar frameworks.
Venturing Unto Joy

Loved the new snippet from 2014 Crim... Does any one else here hope they avoid using the name Larksí Tongues in Aspic for any material this go around? While I love that era of KC, Iíve always like how they looked forward rather than back.

"Scatting is quite possibly one of the lowest forms of improvising, and is so foolish sounding that it makes flanged rototoms sound like a fantastic idea."
HmmÖ I wonder how Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Jon Hendricks, et al would feel about such an opinion, to say nothing of their legions of followers and admirers.
Mind you, Iím not putting Bozís scats up QUITE that high (!), but your criticism was more universal than just Bozís attempts.

Projekct in Brisbane... & Sydney
:: Posted by WaitingMan on June 30, 2014
I agree with Valhalla... I saw the Projekct in Brisbane on Saturday night & it was a fantastic show... making the previous night in Sydney look like a dress rehearsal in comparison
Technical troubles put a bit of a damper on the Sydney show - surely the longest sound-check Iíve ever experienced. As a result, the sound was a bit muddy & inconsistent & it maybe put the guys (& girl!!) off their game a bit... the improvs were a bit lacklustre. BUT when players of this standard soldier on through adversity, the results are still pretty darned impressive & the final Crimson song bracket & encore were a force to behold
The next night in Brisbane was the cheese to Sydneyís chalk. Right from the off, when Markus Reuter began his soundscapes, the mood was positive, with more intent & structure both in his playing & when the rest joined in for Bíboom & Thrak. The Stick Men & the Power Trio seemed to just be in a better place during their sets too (& Iím from Sydney, so that hurts to say!!). The crowd may have been smaller than desired, but they were loud, good-natured & supportive
Additionally, Iíd like to thank all the players for their generosity in taking time during soundcheck to meet with those of us lucky enough to have VIP passes. Especially Pat - who I met outside the Brisbane venue with 2 other fans He chatted for so long with us that I think he forgot he had a gig to play!!. They were all funny, informative, friendly & engaging, making us feel quite at home talking to players of such stature & calibre
Come back any time... preferably soon!!
let's not get ahead of ourselves

A couple of recent posts have included requests for a DVD/Blu Ray from the fall tour. Nice idea, but we hadnít even been treated to one from í08 yet!
