Go see Steven Wilson in concert
:: 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 can’t afford to live without. Please go and support Steven Wilson, you won’t regret it! And if you haven’t bought the H. C. E. album - go ahead and do - it is stunning! I’ll drink to that...


Fribbetts
:: Posted by TheMarkedMan on May 14, 2015

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

I’d like to congratulate David (previously referred to as David Singleton or Mr Singleton in my  posts until now, but I’m 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 RF’s diary - but for the very occasional entry - was a deliberate tactic to enable David to ’find his feet’, in which case ’job done’!  (That’s 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 couldn’t 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 can’t catch the show Live, you can listen again at:
http://www.salfordcityradio.org/shows.php?id=1563
The Progressive Rock Show is an Award Winning show!
It won “Best 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 haven’t 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 can’t afford the money for two huge box sets (or don’t want 40 version of Easy Money)? Please take this into consideration.

Also how’s the 40th Anniversary releases shaping up? And the 2014 live album?


RE: Great Fripp solos on other people's albums?
:: Posted by gasmrv on May 12, 2015

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 ’Dad’ 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 ’real’ 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 BB’s musical force is particularly keen.
