:: Posted by royskagen on May 15, 2015

Hi to all of you who like good music. The SW - Hand. Cannot. Erase. US Tour starts in Worcester, MA. on tuesday 19th. May. I saw the concert in Oslo on 21st. April and it was amazing. Great visiuals and great sound, simply fantastic. This is something you canít afford to live without. Please go and support Steven Wilson, you wonít regret it! And if you havenít bought the H. C. E. album - go ahead and do - it is stunning! Iíll drink to that...

What one might title a musical collaboration between Robert Fripp and Steve Tibbetts. Fribbetting is what one might call the process. The cover art could perhaps portray one Rodney Toady. "Fribbett" call me loopy but I love the possibilities of this imagined pairing

Diary News

Iíd like to congratulate David (previously referred to as David Singleton or Mr Singleton in my  posts until now, but Iím chancing my arm with a more informal style now we seem to know him better...) on his successful US tour (will he similarly be adopting the KC approach and following this up with a European tour, I wonder?) and on his now regular diary updates.  I think he has found his niche/voice/call-it-what-you-will as a diarist and, speaking as a regular dgm visitor, this has been an encouraging development for the site (it is certainly refreshing to see apologies being offered for not updating the diary more often!).  I did wonder if the continued absence of RFís diary - but for the very occasional entry - was a deliberate tactic to enable David to ífind his feetí, in which case íjob doneí!  (Thatís right, you can come back now, Robert!).    

KC on the radio
:: Posted by AndyFox on May 12, 2015

As much as I enjoy the excellent "Progressive Rock Show" with Graham Harfleet on Salford city radio, I couldnít help feeling King Crimson was very under-represented on the playlist.

After an e-mail to the show requesting King Crimson be played, I received an invatation to come on the show to talk KC & choose the music as well, how could I refuse!
The hour long KC fest, featuring mostly Live & lesser heard tunes, will be broadcast Live at 10pm this Wednesday 13th May.

If you canít catch the show Live, you can listen again at:
The Progressive Rock Show is an Award Winning show!
It won ďBest Specialist Music Show" in 2014 out of 17 Specialist Music shows on Salford City Radio!

Hope you can tune in & thank you for your time.

Andy Fox.

The Great Deceiver Volume 2 - More Lies and Further Deceit
:: Posted by mikefrost on May 12, 2015

In 2003, Robert wrote in his diary that there were plans to make a collections under the possible title "The Great Deceiver Volume 2 - More Lies and Further Deceit". He said:

David has been mentioning a pile of live 1973-74 Crimson improvs from Europe that we have in the tape store, on 2-track, that have never been released. These have been in the archive for almost 30 years and most of them I havenít heard since Johnnie, Billy, Davie & Bob pulled them from the air. Or did they pull us from the air? Whatever their origin, David says they are hot. So they might become part of The Great Deceiver - Second Edition or even a separate release: The Great Deceiver -New Lies, More Deceit.

Of course all of this material appeared in the Starless and Road To Red box sets. Still after both, I thought it would be great to have a 2CD collection of the best improvs from the board tapes (not the multitracks, which have been extensively covered before). What about those of us who want to hear the mighty Crim in action but canít afford the money for two huge box sets (or donít want 40 version of Easy Money)? Please take this into consideration.

Also howís the 40th Anniversary releases shaping up? And the 2014 live album?

matthusela, I think the track in question is not JuJu Space Jazz but Distributed Being, and the solo starts at 3:57.

You are probably glad to be home... Hope you enjoyed the States!

Radio2 on 'prog'?
:: Posted by AndrewJohn on May 09, 2015

BB is an excellent choice for the first programme. A reasonable man, for me the No 1 drummer and one who understands the Crim way without bowing to any seniority!

My favourite recollection is seeing Earthworks on their first tour in Manchester. Our family had just lost íDadí Dec87 to the big C early in his life, but manfully my brother came with me to the Earthworks gig in Manchester very soon after. Brother is no írealí Crimson fan but a fine brother. I recall how he pointed out at that BB was behind me at the bar. Too reticent to talk or engage with I recall a very expensive looking overcoat, very important in a Manchester winter. Band on The Wall, was a pub like experience - so this gig is lovely to recall. After seeing KCrim in Liverpool and UK in Manchester, some years before, it was an intimate performance and truly a band performance. 

Our Dad enjoyed the first Earthworks album, when he was played it(on tape!) in the car usually. So the connection with BBís musical force is particularly keen.

Great Fripp solos on other people's albums?
:: Posted by matthusela on May 08, 2015

How about on JuJu Space Jazz on Brian Enoís Nerve Net? Unbelievable. That piece of music is one way without Fripp for about 3 minutes lulling you into a false sense of secirity. Then Fripp drops in with an unbelievable ripping angular, violent, flailing, horrific solo that ends with slower somber chords which limp around in fantastic agony before disappearing and leaving the music behind as if nothing ever happened. Itís incredible and it would be a satisfying and perhaps exhausting experience to listen to that single track alone and then turn off the music for the day.

I cannot see this happening. If it was then surely the box sets was the ideal home? Also Robert never seems keen on interviews. However it would be brilliant! !
