Stuttgart Tickle Advise
:: Posted by fhc339835 on September 10, 2016
Two very strong gigs at the beginning of the tour. Cannot imagine that the group will get even stronger, for sure they will.
First night very strong, second night perfect. A lot of smiling in the band.
I would pick Pictures of first gig, 21st or Letters or Fracture or Level 5 of the second gig.
Thanks Mr Fripp

Overthe years I know that I have been a bit of a pain touting a certain KC album. I thought that these songs may never be performed live again. I witnessed one all those years ago in Detroit but to play two selections with the current incarnation. Bravo
Although I understand that the the random free tracks from this tour may not contain new (old) tracks it would be great to hear the new interpretations. All is new.
If the current tour meanders over to North America again please consider playing in the Windsor/Detroit area.
'Cyclops' boy, again.

I’m very pleased to see that that CD/DVD concert box set is now available under the title of ’Radical Action...’
I’ve been looking forward to this for a whole year, since going to the first of the two Birmingham shows!
My only disappointment is that the ’ Edwardian cyclops boy’ artwork is being used instead of the previous ’periodic table’ artwork, which I much preferred.
As far as I know, nobody ever responded to my query last year about the ’cyclops’ artwork and its possible meaning(s).
At least Jakko seems to like it, as he’s had a copy of it emblazoned on one of his guitars!
The only comment on this subject that I’ve come across is on the blurb for the box set over at Burning Shed:
All copies come with an exclusive postcard featuring the striking ‘cyclops’ cover artwork.
Well, I would’ve preferred an exclusive postcard of the previous ’periodic table’ artwork in order to stick it over the ’cyclops’ boy!
At least, I can agree that the ’cyclops’ is ’striking’, but I still suspect some dubious esoteric meaning of a J. G. Bennett / George Gurdjieff variety.
That’s assuming that this painting was a commission from Mr. Fripp, rather than just a product of P. J. Crook’s imagination, but then I never got a reply to my polite enquiry to P. J. Crook last year.
I’ve just found the following online review that makes the passing one word comment "um"!
Aside from the relevant bibliographical references in Eric Tamm’s book, I’ve discovered the following more recent study:
Tony Levin’s photos of the Aylesbury warm-up gigs includes a close up of one mischievous audience member wearing a ’cylops boy’ mask!
I’m particularly looking forward to hearing a 2015 version of ’Larks Tongues... Part Two’, which they didn’t play at the first Birmingham show.
Fripp & Eno & Walker
:: Posted by dirtygum on September 09, 2016
I was recently reading a biography about Scott Walker (singer/composer, formerly of The Walker Brothers) and it mentioned that Brian Eno was brought in to help produce a new album for him around 1984/85 (after Climate Of Hunter).
The project did not get very far before being abandoned altogether, but apparently five or six backing tracks were recorded with Robert Fripp on guitar.
Any chance of Mr. Stormy unearthing this? I suppose not, because if the tapes exist, Scott probably has them.
It sure would be interesting to listen to that music.
Walker & Fripp together? I would love to hear that!
Radical Action Inner Knot Status
:: Posted by kprieger on September 09, 2016
not to fully speak for them, but as there was a question below, figured i’d share my interaction with them from yesterday.
shot them an email asking what the status was and they confirmed a few hours later that yesterday they received the box sets at the inner knot offices and that it would take two days to ship them all out. They confirmed you should receive a shipping notice when it ships.
so if you live in the US, check your email for shipping notices. imagine if it were to take two days that means yesterday (Thursday) and Friday w/ an assumption that it should be in the mail starting early next week.
thanks to inner knot for responding quickly and clearly to questions - it’s much appreciated. looks like us US people will have the box shipped next week!

Just want to say thank you for the great concert yesterday in Stuttgart.
I think it was the best Crimson I’ve ever seen (if not even the best I’ve heard).
The side effects of anticipation
:: Posted by kboman on September 09, 2016
I just had a weird dream that I thought could give the readers here a little chuckle:
My dad and myself were at the first Copenhagen gig. Between two songs Fripp unexpectedly leaves the stage (the rest of the players are completely unfazed by this). He soon sits down next to us, eating an egg sandwich and enjoying the show. This was so weird it woke me up - feeling very hungry!
Radical Action box sets
:: Posted by DanielM on September 08, 2016
Any / all whom it concerns,
Any word of whether the "Radical Action" box sets have gone out from Inner Knot to pre-order customers in the U.S. yet? As far as I can tell by looking on the site, the item has transitioned from a pre-order to *SOLD*OUT*, yet I (as one pre-order customer whose credit card has seen the charge go through) have not even seen notification- email or otherwise - of the item shipping. A glance at my order’s status page says it’s still in processing. Just curious what’s up.
Radical Action etc.

My Radical Box arrived yesterday.
And today I enjoyed the complete 3 cd’s in my car, very loud, while making detours in stead of going direct to work.. This evening I compaired some songs of Radial to Orpheum and Toronto downloads (by the way: I prefer the Toronto ’Epitaph’).
Radial is superb. Recordings very clear, good mellotronvolume (which was not at the 2nd Utrecht concert 2015) and overall wonderful sound + musical atmosphere. Balance between the drummers and the rest is very good.
Let’s hear it for the King. Hurray! I’m very happy with this powerful King, this King is very much alive!!!
One remark: I miss the audience, that’s all, but besides of this, the box is a ’must’!
2016 Euro tour tickles
:: Posted by myshadow on September 08, 2016
Posting a track for each gig of the euro tour is an incredible idea! Living in the USA I won’t be able to catch a gig. This idea allows all of us, from all over the world to attend the tour day by day. I will gladly pay a dollar per track to experience this! Thank you so much for sharing the music with type of outreach, and I’m glad to provide my support for the band in this manner. Please, keep these tickles coming.
