..end of tour..Tony's Take..
:: Posted by AndrewJohn on October 10, 2014
Tony Levinís choice of a final picture to epitomize the tour is very apt.
...although a collective and happy scene, its more than clear that RF looks joyous. Something I think most of us would want him to enjoy, as perhaps we, as fans, have had in a continuing joy in KC. For some of us this has been for many, many years. So its only fitting that KC has reciprocated this to its main protagonist.
In 1974 when R.I.P. appeared on the USA vinyl I wasnít surprised. However then we had so little to go on but with TheYPGtoKC and scrapbook a sort of sense appeared and provided a suitable close. But as KC resurrected in 81í it was clear the gloves were off....we were not to enjoy KC as a distant teenage nostalgia trip.........
and now suddenly itís 2014(!)...wow!...
whatever follows.....itíll be worth waiting for........
.....some of us never grow up, but hell yeah the mantra was always íStay Youngí anyway!

Thanks for the tip Albemuth
Rachel Flowers is expletive awesome.....
Guess if ever Bob wants to retire as band leader, just parachute her in...
Her cover of Peaches en Regalia is a force to be reckoned with as well........
Maybe its a consequence of previous sight issues, but the attention to detail is absolutely astounding. I am just blown away with someone who can exercise such focus and come back with an interpretation which is both totally honest to te original but intuitively adds some clear personal interpretation, particularly in the middle section of LTIA part 1, loved it.

Level 5 was so heavy it left a void in its wake. When it was over all the air had been removed from the room.
have you got a video?
:: Posted by vargan on October 10, 2014
there was a video camera positioned next to the soundboard in albany capturing a wide angle shot. perhaps this may be considered for the one of the remaining KCCC releases.
the perspective iíd like to see would be the drummers wearing go-pros, i think the P@ cam would be very entertaining.
Congratulations and Flowers

Letís hear a big "congratulations!" and "job well done!" for KC. I am hugely impressed (but maybe not so surprised) that this tour was a GRAND SUCCESS.
To celebrate the completion of this completion, listen to Rachel Flowersí cover of LTIA Pt. I and Pt II (soundcloud), if you have not already. Wow!
From My Own Private Cell: Fans' Takes on Jakszyk, Part Two?
:: Posted by davidly on October 10, 2014
I am pleased that you took my comment in good humor, andyfromoz. For the way I express my view of the world is not always endearing.
On another note: microbunny commented that Jakkoís guitar work on Larksí I was at a level worthy of note. I suspect playing in a band replete with legends, standing behind three drummers, and being in constant comparison with vocalists past, oneís picking might go uncommented by default. Iíd be curious to read other responses to his playing - on the Tongues and TCoL in particular.
from my prison

Hi fellow aussie Valhalla! regarding: Surely a band playing live for the first time is going to ítest the waterí so to speak?
Seriously? "for the first time"? Come on now, these guys arenít like other bands, these are among the best in the world, theyíve played live a gazillion times and surely donít need to test any water before recording!
I apologize for my ranting, I take responsibilty for my own expectation of live footage that Iíd already imagined sitting down to enjoy with my fellow KC loving mates...silly me, Iím passionate about the things I love. I realize that I shouldíve just hoped for a DVD and not allowed myself to get all worked up, by all the tantalizing titillation. Expectation is indeed a prison...but now Iím out on bail, i hope to have the opportunity to hear this new KC music...but if not, no worries, they arenít the only musical fish in the sea after all.
entitlement and expectation
:: Posted by andyfromozz on October 09, 2014
Iíve calmed down now and Iím sorry about ranting in the way I did. But I question why on this webpage, which is a means to promote DGM product, everything seemed to be leading towards new KC product. Sure, I am used to missing out on many artists I like who donít tour downunder, but I suppose I did have some expectation that after all the exciting build up, the payoff would be a DVD for those of us tantalized by the glowing reviews, interviews with blown away fans etc. As far as the expense of filming, was the Shepherds Bush footage on the Japan DVD expensive? Didnít look like it. We donít need bells and whistles, I just really wanted to see it! Iím really disappointed that I wonít get that chance. That said, Iím really looking forward to being able to buy a recording at the very least...if by chance that is in the pipeline. and now I think Iíll take a sip of wine from the cup of silence...and shut the hell up...andy from oz
KC DVD release (cont. cont.)
:: Posted by gasmrv on October 09, 2014
I must be getting old...
Iím told Book of Saturday & Moonchild (short version) will also be featured in the double-DVD set (still, it seems, thereís a possibility this may actually be a 3-DVD set).
Also, some exciting news: Footage will definitely be more along the lines of the íBootleg TVí footage seen on the July 2000 London DVD, and NOT the April 2003 Tokyo footage featured on the íEyes Wide Opení DVD set, i.e. a more raw, genuine, faithful, no-gimmicks visual take on the current KC line-up.
Thereís also talk of not releasing any DVDs at all, but a 5-CD set instead, 4 CDs featuring all of the aforementioned tracksówith the fifth CD containing completely new material, effectively a new KC album, an album which will include two tracks with the current working titles of "Larksí Tongues in Aspic Pt. 7" & "Larks Tongues in Aspic Pt. 8".
If the CD box set becomes a reality, it is scheduled for release in the spring/autumn of 2016.
Itís the music that counts.
The REAL burning question
