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.

Thanks for this Mr Stormy... I think thereís gonna be many more here loving it!

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!!

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!

Why Earthbound?
:: Posted by JBeerLTIA on June 29, 2014

As long as Iíve been a fan of Crimson, people have always told me to check out Earthbound. When I got it, I was very excited. This was a lineup I was not very familiar with, and it had improvs on it! The listening experience proved to be horrible. Terrible sound quality, sub par playing, and a lack of unity from the band imo. I have listened to many KC shows that have less than desirable quality, but I normally can get over it. This one however, just bothers the hell out of me (this and the KCCC Jacksonville release especially! Probably ruined my speakers with the distorted cracks and hiss!). The Islands band was a fancy rock and roll outfit if you asked me, Boz and Ian never seemed that into it, with the latter doing an awful 3 hour space rock drum solo (with flanged rototoms??) That just drags on and on. Also, to add icing to the cake, there is a part where Boz starts fuckin SCATTING. 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. Sorry to be so scathing, but I really, really donít get it. Why does everyone like this album so much? Iím not judging you, to each his own, but I just want to understand itís cult worship that Iíve seen countless times.

A return to GO Mode seems to have left Robert with less time for his diary. How am I supposed to keep up with that rabbit drama of his?
