Expectation is a prison
:: Posted by Stahlhofen on September 29, 2013
Hi fellow crimheads,
one of Roberts quotes is "Expectation is a prison" so please let it all come up to you and be open for whatever the new KC line up will bring. Adrian will be missed by some and Johnny the W will be missed by others. Just be glad that oncle Robert retires from retirement.
p.s. but one can at least hope for some new music ;-)

If you want to hear Mel ískronkí, catch him at a Tony OíMalley gig
Just had a thought that sent shivers down my spine...

Whatever the new lineup decides to play, I will be jumping up and down with glee and generally channeling my inner school girl. Whilst imagining particular songs with the polyrhythmic power of the big 3 (BíBoom of course, Industry, LTIA, Pictures of a City), I had one of those moments where I stop what Iím doing, drop my jaw, and say to no one in particular, "Hot DAMN!"

King Crimson tour
:: Posted by drz400 on September 29, 2013
It has been quite a while since King Crimson played live. I am hoping they will tour again or at least make new music. I await that day patiently. I saw them in Philadelphia a few years back they were outstanding as always. Does anyone know if there is anything in the works or if a tour is possible at all in the future?. Nick
improvisation in 2014?
:: Posted by jacethecrowl on September 29, 2013
Interesting to announce a year in advance the intentions of an outfit that has not yet been tested for chemistry. Why not first get together quietly and play loudly? Iím trying to keep my skepticism in check and will certainly buy a ticket for whatever KC presents in 2014, but I think Belew will be sorely missed in the improvisation department. Heís such an exciting and collaborative player, and "Scarcity of Miracles" sounds like the Jakko show -- which is to say overly composed and controlled. I donít want these men to politely act their age -- I want to hear Mel Collins skronk! If they are going to be reliant on old material I hope theyíll have the good sense to turn it inside out. Sounds like itís up to the drummers to bring a much needed sense of danger to the proceedings.

While Iím simply happy that KC has a chance of playing again, lost in all the Belew- haha is the return of the great Mel Collins. That in itself will be worth my price of admission.

"Ian McDonald, or David Cross, or Michael Giles"
Maybe because the aforementioned havenít been in KC for forty years or so.
The idea of a three drummer KC going thought KCís catalog is interesting to say the least.
I donít get it but I usually donít. Looking forward to whatever this new KC brings.
re: Enough about Belew!!!

Well mr. Cloudscapes, I couldnít agree more.
Letís be glad that there will be another KC line up at all. Yes, -as mr. Cloudscapes mentions- I donít expect many more line ups to come after this one. So enjoy the fact there is one, again!
I am glad however -and I say it again here but wonít mention the íAí word- that the balance of the line up is in favor of the Brits in the band, as I wrote earlier on saturday 28th, as I think a British ífeelí is necessary for the Kingís music. (see 28th)
Iím glad with the choice of all the musicians in the current line up and to be frank: I feel that the current line up will have the most chance of new influences and progression, and the less chance of repetition!
So again: people, come at ease with that and be glad thereís is a new line up at all !! I am ! And I guess mr. Cloudscapes is as well.

I can imagine Adrian feeling slighted, but at the same time, he admitted a long time ago that KC is Robertís band, and he can do what he likes with it. As I recall, Robert wanted to reform KC in the early 1990s with David Sylvian, but he turned Robert down, so itís not as if Robert hasnít conceived of a post-1980s lineup of KC without Adrian, and not as if Adrian didnít know that Robert had pondered these things before.
And while yes, itís true enough that in linear terms, Adrian has been in KC for 32 years, but KC has been in various stages of hiatus or inactivity for the bulk of that time. So far as any of us knew even a few months ago, Robert had hung up his guitar and stopped making commercial music of any kind. There was a brief bit of life in 2008 and then that was that.
The reason I bring up the fact that KC has not been a constant in Adrianís life is to point out that it isnít even fair for him to say heís been in the band for the 32 years.
KC has always been about a way of making music, and the only constant has been Robert. Even long-time members like Bill or Tony have gone missing, and KC has certainly eaten its share of frontmen.
For me, Iím excited at the chance, if the stars align right, of me being able to KC. While I love Adrianís music, Iíll take any lineup of KC that Robert cares to get on a stage with.
