KC Tour box 2014 question
:: Posted by logan74 on April 09, 2016
On the packaging of the 2014 tour box set, 21st Century Schizoid Man is listed as being from Providence RI. Is that correct? Because it sounds like that track is taken from Asbury park.

This does in fact appear to be the case. I had purchased the ITWOP 180-gram reissue, which came with the download of the pink Island label press rip, and the differences were especially noticeable on The Devilís Triangle. This also appears to be the case with the Atlantic label copies of the album.

Thank you so much, Antonion
for re-tickling the link to
As a reverent fan of Robertís Soundscapes and the intentions that create them,
these pieces created with 2 other artists are a stunning elaboration of that work.
Finding out about the environment they were played in takes the joyful mysteries even deeper!
Also, "Midori" by Stick Men with David Cross is a wonderfully nutritional visit -
I wish to have been in the air of that performance, the performance & recording is so immersive & powerful.
Earnest Thank Youís to all involved with such great work =)
In the Wake of Poseidon (Pink Island) - different mix??
:: Posted by Mawsonics on April 08, 2016
Hello all. Iím a newbie here, with a query about the íPoseidoní album, which Iíve just bought on Pink Island (the first pressing) for the not unreasonable price of £25. Listening to the album, Iíve noticed what sound like differences in the mix; for instance the title track has a longer fade-out, Mike Giles going absolutely ape at the very, very end with an amazing double bass drum írollí. I reckon the fade out is about 10 seconds longer than the (old) CD version Iím familiar with. Also, the incredible ífog horní moment in The Devilís Triangle (at about 3:50) is totally underwhelming, being quite low in the mix and mostly restricted to the r.h. speaker. Iím sure there are other minor differences elsewhere in this track, and also in Pictures of a City. Can anyone back me up on this? Thanks, Chris

In answer to the question:
A number of the team are experimenting with this (not this one - Iím too old a dog to learn such a new trick). It does offer all manner of possibilities, but it does mean re-learning a lot of things that weíve spent a long time re-learning from OST, as well as re-learning all the Crafty repertoire.
Time will tell - it usually does, anyway.
The .007 String

Maybe Goldfinger had something to do with it.
New Standard Tuning 1.2
:: Posted by CrumbledFingers on April 07, 2016
In 2012, Robert says in his diary:
A Future Project presented: Gary Goodmanís .007 string was distributed to particular seats in the Circle, with the suggestion that the NST 1.2 tuning Ė C,G,D,A,E,A Ė be investigated. Had Garryís string been available in 1985, C,G,D,A,E,A might have been NST 1.1.
He is referring to the incredibly thin guitar string developed by Gary Goodman of octave4plus.com, which could conceivably be tuned high enough to enable a high A on the top string.
Since then, I havenít heard anything about the tuning being changed, and Robert is still using the high G as far as I can tell from listening to the chords he has been playing, and the Guitar Circle repertoire doesnít seem to have adopted the 1.2 tuning either. Iím interested in hearing why it didnít pan out with the .007 string.
Adrian Belew - Pixar
:: Posted by Clavius on April 07, 2016
I am really excited and happy to hear that Adrian has not only written the music for Pixarís new animated short Piper (which will debut before Finding Dory this summer in theaters), but that his music has directly insprired the creative team behind the project. I think this will open a new chapter in Adrianís career and itís big news for his fans.
Fashion in a parallel universe
:: Posted by Erik_Skysawed on April 06, 2016
Paid hommage to Bowie (yes a bit late; time constraints) by going to the David Bowie exhibition in Groningen (The Netherlands). This is the David Bowie Is exhibition (previous stations were the Vicky & Bertie Museum in London, Toronto, Sao Paulo, Berlin, Chicago, Paris, Melbourne, see http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/t/touring-exhibition-david-bowie-is/ ). A bit chaotic in display (due to the odd building the Groninger Museum is), most of it at display was familiar to me.
One new thing I learnt was that The Man typically made his art, by first (letting) the musicians assemble the music, and DB would follow suit with textlines as spontaneously as possible. Famous case is "Heroes". What I read at the exhibition is that for "Fashion", however, words were not coming directly. DB was considering to shelve the track...
Now imagine the "Scary Monsters" platter (side one) not ending with Fashion... Imagine a detective story developing in the 1990s or beyond -possibly after people read cryptic remarks about it in Nathan Adlerís diary- about a Lost Track with RHVLís guitar bursts. People, hunting for some leads into this matter, asking the Guitarist, who only replied in his trade-marked cryptic aphorism mode "If we wish to know, breathe the air around someone who knows." and "The artist is a bridge between the possible, the impossible, and the actual." and "If we donít know where weíre going, weíll probably get there." And finally several DB-watchers claiming the rumoured track was hidden in a subliminal sense underneath the drum&bass layers of "Earthling".
Best Thela Ever?
:: Posted by DouglasBramley on April 05, 2016
Just downloaded the New Haven 2001 show. Adrianís soloing on Thela is absolutely wild! This version has the momentum of a bullet train, and the broken string handoff to P3 just makes it better. This is now my "reference " Thela!
