Gordon Haskell
:: Posted by Hubert on May 27, 2016

A pity Gordon Haskellís remarks anent his vocals on LIZARD are so disparaging. I always found his sardonic tone very effective and entirely suitable for the dark and cynical lyrics on this Crimson masterpiece. I wish heíd sung on ISLANDS, too!

WHAT the...

Just perusing the recent comments when I saw...

"Encore: Tales From Topographic Oceans I know that this is Yes but always thought that KC could do it better."

Then I looked at who wrote it (Albemuth). Ah.

To provide a more serious answer, my (limited) understanding is:

1. Fracture is very difficult to play, even for a Crimson tune, thus providing a period of extreme vulnerability within the show, most (all?) of which falls on the shoulders of Robert, who, as we all surely know, is sensitive to disruptions during periods of vulnerability. In short, playing Fracture gives idiots in the audience an extended opportunity to derail the entire show.

2. Fracture is also very much written for the specific line up that played it, hence the re-invention as FraKctured. Thereís a number of obvious differences between the í73 and the current line ups. Iíve gained the impression (possibly incorrectly) that much of the updating of the early material has been performed by the group, in part or in whole, rather than solely by Robert. However, Fracture is so essentially a Robert piece, that Iím dubious such would be possible here.

Perhaps that answers the question?

Royston, really.  He who would make a pun would pick a pocket . . .  Cheers!

In response to ionpeta666ís question about Fracture, I suspect Mr. Fripp simply wanted to make a clean break.

Anybody knows or imagine why fracture is not played nowadays?
Thank you

Just in case the band is listening, my request for the second set was the entire Earthbound album, and not just the track.  For this, it would be great if each KC member could use an MXR distortion box, set to the "cassette tape" sound.  Thanks in advance.

Set request
:: Posted by albemuth on May 24, 2016

I would like KC to play two sets and then an encore:
Set 1: Schizoid Men
         Perhaps this could be extended to a full hour of solos, and by Fripp only.
Set 2: Earthbound
          Iím hoping that Jim Dandy Mangrum could sit in for the scat vocals.
Encore: Tales From Topographic Oceans
          I know that this is Yes but always thought that KC could do it better.

Track List
:: Posted by MisterTi on May 24, 2016

Hi, I would like to know what are they willing to play at this 2016 tour dates.

I am definitely going for something like the following:

21st Century Schizoid Man
I Talk to the Wind
The Court of the Crimson King
Fallen Angel

I donít really know the new albums, will they play this old ones? Thank you!
