KC: the Gateway to Megastardom
:: Posted by Ornate_Coal_Man on January 11, 2014
But for KC, the world never be fortunate to experience the magical wonders of Foreigner, Bad Company AND Asia. No KC, no Foreigner, Bad Company, or Asia. Itís as simple at that. :) So, if you ever get tired of listening to the Larks box or the Red Box or Projects Box or, for that matter, any other kind of profoundly experimental and/or uncompromising music that shares the same spirit as KC, simply turn on the radio and imagine an entirely different world at your disposal. When you, you know, feel like makiní love, you dirty white boy. Simply turn o the radio. Itís like 1978 never left us. Of, alternatively, you may find yourself in í82. :)

All things are forgivable, save one: starting Foreigner.
Transatlantics covers Indiscipline
:: Posted by ulrichspiegel on January 10, 2014
"Transatlantic are covering the KC track Indiscipline on their forthcoming album Kaleidoscope."
I found out that the song sequence on the bonus cd is
And you and i (yes cover)
2Canít get it out of my head (elo cover)
3Conquistador (procol harum cover)
4Goodbye yellow brick road (elton john)
5Tin soldier (small faces cover)
6Sylvia (focus cover)
7Indiscipline (king crimson cover)
8Nights in white satin (the moody blues cover)
This can only mean that on the next Transatlantic album 21stcsm will be surrounded by Barclay James Harvestís Poor Manís Moody Blues and the Bee Gees with How Deep is your Love.
Isnít this a suggestion for the forthcoming KC repertoire?

markvankempen, your choice of words doesnít make sense. To say that Michael Giles was the only drummer in pop/rock in 1969 who could "keep time" is ludicrous. Clearly you mean something different.

I was wondering if guestbook contributors could enlighten me as to additional examples of Robert Frippís slide guitar playing. The two pieces that immediately come to mind are "Cat Food" and David Bowieís "Fashion."
I have accepted that my question about the intentionality of the harmonic content of the latter - specifically, a composite dominant 7 #9 chord being created by superimposing a minor seventh an octave above a major triad - will remain unanswered by RF. The implication I will derive from this void is to attribute it to one of those "Happy Accidents" one occasionally hears about in creative endeavors.
Hearing it played on Top 40 radio in 1980 & 81:
one of the absolute highlights of my life.

Donít know how many DGM followers are into proto-grunge like Tad and The Melvins. But the latterís Buzz Melvin offers some direct insights into keeping the flame of inspiration alive while coping with financial realities -- in the context of "Bands That Were Good But Blew It." (http://tinyurl.com/mxm6c3j)
"Iíve always had the idea that multi-millionaire rock stars should work harder than anyone, because they have the ability to do it. Look at an artist like Andy Warhol. He never stopped working even after he didnít need to work again. I think when he died he was worth $200 million. He certainly didnít need to work, but he did. Francis Bacon was a brutal alcoholic, but painted from like 6 a.m. to noon every single day until he died."

"Following a fab Thanksgiving in San Francisco with the Sistery Person, this has been a splendid week in Seattle. The happiest part of my holiday here has been seeing a happy Minx has been for six consecutive days, undistracted by the press of stuff and fluster.
I was thinking to myself as I read the recent diary entries that Toyah looked very happy in the photos in Seattle. The sunny weather here during that time surely helped raise spirits.
And you canít go wrong with those views of Elliott Bay!
Do come back soon!
Glad to see the old goat have hisself a time

but tell me, what does it look like when the boat pushes off a little too far? Morris dancing and drummer jokes? Impressions of Elvis singing "Still, you turn me on"?
Ah well, may the venal fella always have alittle time to join pinkies and dance. Yer not right if you donít.
Hereís hoping you all have a great, healthy and Happy 2014. Looking forward to Crim back in action. Lord knows what it will sound like, and I wouldnít have it any other way.
