The Horror....s
:: Posted by Bakullama on June 23, 2015

Gave them a listen. Seems to be pretty standard fare. Not sure I get any of this Fripp in a speedboat comment. Is it just name dropping or what? The girl in their video is quite beautiful though and makes the video worth watching.

Matching the Mole
:: Posted by rogadaire on June 23, 2015

So the Horrors got inspiration for their album by imagining RF in a speedboat chase in Miami, eh? It’s funny, I keep imagining him, dressed in his usual suit and tie garb,  but as a mole peeking up between the shoulders of Messrs Rieflin and Mastelotto.  Now, where could I have got that image from!?    

Taylor on Apple
:: Posted by fhc339835 on June 22, 2015

Wow! Apple found out they should deal differently! Taylor chose the right words for her subservient petition and found the right minstrel of the organisation.

Deeply moved I am by the turning of a character to a respectful person in regard to intellectual / artist property rights. 

Re: Swift reply
:: Posted by Valhalla on June 22, 2015

Whilst I can hear Swift’s message & it has some positives regarding payments & the like to artists etc, I cringed at her ’sucking up’ to a corporate entity. As i sit here typing this on my Mac computer, (yes, even I have supported the mogul), I could almost feel her ’fear’ in her response! The line ’artists etc in my social circles are afraid to speak up publicly etc’ says it all really. Fair dinkum, I almost thought it was an Apple promo in many ways! Almost!

Taylor on Apple
:: Posted by fhc339835 on June 22, 2015

She is so right. Indeed, she should go on touring and sell her art, recorded music and fethishizaion items at concerts and via her own shop.
But she will never change the mind of the executives of any shareholder value driven corporation.
What makes me really anxious is the servile kindness of her words. Have we come now to a stage where the business character being treated with disrespect and humiliation (Taylor Swift as a professional musician) now must position herself with so much verbal servility? I cannot imagine that this is the strange (and a little bit suspicious) way of beating about the bush, Englishmen continue to irritate me - as Taylor Swift is a young US American lady, I don’t think so.
I tend to believe that root of the discrepancy of the core message and the verbal packaging is fear.
We are all rocking in the free world (reference to Neil Young) whilst buying the Stairway to Heaven.

Re; Cyclops
:: Posted by Valhalla on June 22, 2015

Poor old cyclops, he/she cannot even hide under a ’modern’ face lift without raising a few eyebrows, sorry, one eyebrow! He/she has been around for eons & therefore is used to a certain amount of attention. Still, at least an update to the image is somewhat refreshing in a way, but one wonders if it is still the same cyclops lurking underneath. What is that saying, ’a wolf in sheep’s clothing’? Cheers.

The Eye of Providence
:: Posted by Teledan on June 22, 2015

Having started the discussion about the 2015 tour poster, I must respond: I simply noticed that the "Eye of Providence" motif is approximated in the poster’s design, and noted that some ascribe it to conspiracy symbolism involving a mysterious "illuminati" with the connections to historical figures and secret societies, as mentioned. I am not promulgating any such personal beliefs!

Perhaps if Mr. Fripp himself were to don the mask of the "smiling Polynesian" of the "12 Archetypes", and mutilate himself into a twisted version of the Vitruvian Man, whilst laying amid the vandalized ruins of his garden statuary, inspiring Dan Brown to find enuff furthur evidence of chicanery to chronicle the events into a best-selling book, THEN perhaps I would believe that hurlyburly is afoot and something wicked this way comes.

Until then, Fair is foul and foul is fair. Hover thru the fog and filthy air!

One eye.....
:: Posted by bloggulator on June 21, 2015

One thing which I am sure we should all be aware, especially after some 45+ years, is that King Crimson has always retained the capacity to disturb minds, on a number of fronts. This is one of the the few aspects about KC that often conforms to expectations i.e. "No Bland Permitted!".

The current poster follows a history of disturbing artwork - from "In The Court....", through "A Young Person’s Guide", all the P. J. Crook album artwork, and now, what I call "Young Polyphemus".

And I am pretty sure that King Crimson wasn’t nicknamed "The Beast" for being "nice" :)

Marketing genius at your service.

In the olden days vinyl albums would sometimes come with a cutout or other (sometimes useful or goofy) moving gimmick in, or on, the cover.. The Doors had one, Zeppelin 3 had a spinning wheel, Uriah Heep had a mirror, Jefferson Airplane had a cigar box with weed in it... Alice Cooper Schools out came with a pair of panties that I still wear on special occasions.

Wouldn’t it be a hoot to have our "one eyed jack" die cut into a mask we could all wear when the clampdown commences? It would be a lot better than that silly Guy Fawkes mask. Imagine thousands... (Well, hundreds) of King Crimson fans wearing these at a concert.

Tour Poster - One Eye
:: Posted by simkin_eden on June 21, 2015

Sorry Brighton but the ’one-eyed’ man quote doesn’t answer it.   H G Wells wrote a short story ’The Country Of The Blind’ which is stumbled upon my a sighted man, his attempts to explain ’sight’ to them is dismissed, and his attempts to take control and integrate fail dismally. So in Well’s kingdom of the blind the one-eyed man is useless and doomed!

As for the tour poster - to me it is disturbing, very disturbing.
