Yes, being a big fan of UC I paid more attention to what was on the mantle than the dinosaur! Thanks to ever did the grab!
Nice to see modern students are interested in serious music!

Iíve always figured theyíd be a bit more Ravenclaw, except Tony. Tony would somehow be in every house, because TONY IS F***ING EVERYWHERE.
RFSQ show 1633
:: Posted by MookieKeebler on July 07, 2014
Way off current topics, but... does anyone know why, other than the noted clipping on "Eye of the Needle", the RFSQ show of November 16, 1992, Club Quattro, Nagoya, Japan, has such an unusually low, especially for a board DAT recording, DGM audio quality rating of only three stars? The short mp3 clips have plenty of what sound like mp3 compression artifacts, but I know many noise reduction methods produce similar-sounding artifacts. I really want this show (as FLAC), but not if it has those artifacts throughout due to possible noise reduction measures taken, or some other cause, which would be on the FLAC version as well. I would particularly like to hear from anyone who has downloaded the FLAC of this show for their assessment of the sound quality. I know there is a generous amount of other RFSQ material available, but certain parts, particularly the soundscapes, on this earlier show, seem substantially different from subsequent shows. Thank you, and my apologies for being poor at brevity.
The Sorting Hat

I clicked the link to the Fripp signed Strat the other day and left it open on my computer. When I came back into the room my girlfriend said "You left that picture of King Crimson up on your computer, but I thought it was just a bunch of Slytherins" (A dormatory/house in the world of Harry Potter for that donít know.)
Bill Rieflin DOES look a lot like a relative of Draco Malfoy, Tony & P@ look like theyíre up to no good... And letís be real, King Crimson would DEFINITELY be a band of Slytherins.
on a lark
:: Posted by starmore on July 06, 2014
see how a tour generates interest.?...more random chit chat:
The tidbit of joy available does make one think of the great double drumming on Larkís pt1.
1) Larkís Pt 1would be a great tune to do on this tour, especially for the improv section which could be different every night and allow for both a "repertory" show and new material. And it does not "have" to have a violinist (although if you want one Mat Maneri is availible, seems pretty crowded up there as it is)
2) I really love LIZARD, despite all its flaws. I really hope they can at least try Cirkus (not to mention all of side one).
3) Is "Lady of the dancing water" based on Pachelbelís canon? The piano part on the run- through made me think of it.
4) Play whatever you guys want, this is just fanboy talk......might as well feel like a teenager again.......
5) Someone in the band should check out Elliot Carter, especially the String quartets.
#1 is really amazing. Talk about Polymetric/polyrhythm /Polymorphic .
Also the Double Concerto for Piano and Harpsichord, especially for the sonic grouping and layout when playing in a more orchestral hall like the Verizon (in PA).
Upcoming Show downloads?
:: Posted by DanAnderson on July 06, 2014
Holy Smokes. I followed jimbugtmís lead and clicked the next button and it does show a page per tour show. Ooooohhhhh, this could be good!
I wonder if this Crim is going to do improvs a la the Wetton/Bruford band or the TCoL band... So many questions. Seattle, here I come!
Even more Joy!
:: Posted by jimbugtm on July 06, 2014
I visited the Full Recording link for A Venturing Unto Joy, and lo and behold, there was a "next" navigation link. Curious (and being a software tester with a destructive mind), I followed it.
Talk about another venturing unto joy (no-caps intentional). It looks like there are plans (tentative, at least, who knows what the future holds) for downloads of the upcoming tour.
Canít wait to see and hear the upcoming show in Boston!

I have always enjoyed Frippís acoustic guitar playing: very pure and sweet, and always at the service of the music.

I was at one of the Frippertronics shows at Inroads in 1981 and a member of the audience asked why Fripp doesnít play acoustic guitar (I assume he meant publicly) and Fripp replied that acoustic guitar is an anachronism. I recalled this exchange with amusement 8 or 9 years later while at the Bottom Line for a League of Crafty Guitarists set, faced with a half-circle of guitarists playing Ovations. I suppose that it can be argued that Ovations are only semi-acoustic but I still found it ironic.

Thereís an "unplugged" version of Eyes Wide Open on the Happy With What You Have ep, but I donít know if they actually played acoustics or if they just applied a sample to the signal generated from the electrics. It is a very nice version in my opinion.
There was a mention about acoustic guitars in Crimson mentioned somewhere that I read once, but I canít recall if it was in Sidís book or tucked away in Frippís diary somewhere. Given that thereís more than a decade of words in there, trying to hunt for that needle in haystack is beyond my time this morning.
