If Iím not mistaken, that looks like a nice image of the Andromeda Galaxy on Jakkoís PC monitor...

I may be on the wrong side of 50, but Iím as excited as my son at Christmas about getting my hands oníRedí on vinyl. Incidentally, are there plans for any more LP reissues?

Songs like Vrooom Vrooom: Coda, Level 5 before the fast runs and Thrak itself Fripp likes to use these kind of distorted, abrupt, disonant and syncopated chords. Does anybody know what these chords are? I refuse to believe they are something simple like a power chord or a tritone.

In response to Davidlyís posting re the Rolling Stones:
...corporate-heavy, performed by millionaires to a crowd of straights and policed by the Met, who will switch off power if Keith plays too loud.
But isnít thatís what happened to the world in general? i.e. corporate take-over; centralisation; big brother; social media; superstores; millionaires etc. etc.? In the long run, isnít this what the í60s lot became? Isnít it what Joni Mitchell said about them (paraphrase): íThey became the greediest, yuppiest, yippiest lot of all time?í The tragedy is they had it in their hands to take the baton of integrity to the world at large and instead became what JM described.
And it is a tragedy. Itís a tragedy for the arts as well as for everyone else: for the arts, because, in the main, celebrity culture has replaced expression because itís corporate-led. Iím not a Thatcherite (or a Tory or anything that smells of politics - no way!) but she did say one thing (before going on to wreck the UK): (paraphrase) íIn those days people could DO something. Nowadays people want to BE something.í Look at Tony Blair. Itís a bloody tragedy.
What music, or art for that matter, is there out there that actually stands up and is prepared to be counted? You canít say this and you canít say that íin fear they might offend.í All musicians do, it seems to me, is raid whatís gone before. Itís a mix and match, safe way of doing things. íLetís all be famous!í and pocket the proceeds. No-one seems prepared to react against the status-quo. Even so-called reactionaries. Radiohead sort of did it but then faded into...well, what exactly?
I yearn to hear something, somewhere, which picks me up by the short and curlies, flings me round the room and makes me shout íYEAH, YEAH, YEAH, AT LONG LAST!!!í instead of the crap that passes for music in this new and, up till now anyway, mediocre millenium. Itís all so easy to make music. As long as you have your computer, your software; have done a íuniversity courseí; taken the prescription (academic) drugs. Itís laughable.
The Rolling Stones? Oh, please...

I canít see a way to search on this forum. Has The Flaming Lips version of first album been discussed to death already? Iím intrigued. Listened to a few tracks. Impressed.
From Ed Vuliamy's Hyde Park Piece

The Monday after the Stones, however, I stopped off at WH Smith on my way home from school, bought a copy of Beggars Banquet for the taxing price of 32/6 and listened to it all evening, every evening, for a week. I knew something special had happened and Iíd been there. But I shall avoid the 2013 version like the plague Ė corporate-heavy, performed by millionaires to a crowd of straights and policed by the Met, who will switch off power if Keith plays too loud.Amen, brother.

Hyde Park 1969, 2013
:: Posted by musicdgm on April 03, 2013
In July 2013 the Rolling Stones return to performing in Hyde Park, 44 years after they, and King Crimson, in their different but ground breaking ways, thrilled the concertgoers. Looking at the poster for the concert, featuring many bands, youíll see mentioned King C........... King Charles. Talk about raising false hopes only to have them dashed an instant later. If only the inimitable musicians and music of any incarnation of King Crimson (especially any yet to be.....) could have graced the park this year as well....... íCíest la vieí as someone might have sung. Respect and best regards.....
Book of Saturday 40th Bass line
:: Posted by vinnydbass on April 03, 2013
Has anyone else noticed that the bassline is changed in this song on the 40th anniversary edition? I have listened to it many times, and noticed that the bass line over one of the 5/4 parts is different than the original recording.
