Just finished listening to the latest Stormy Monday selection...there seems to be as much going on there drum-wise as any output from the current lineup. Which leads me to the conclusion: Harrison + Rieflin = Bruford.
LTIA Part III
:: Posted by matthusela on September 22, 2015
Oh how much I would love the Three of A Perfect Pair 40th anniversary edition CD to include a version of LTIA III that does not fade out.
To have any of the LTIA entries fade out seems like something of a crime as in so many ways they seem to be composed pieces. Does anyone know the reason for the original fade out? I can imagine that there was a time constraint on the original vinyl. I could also imagine that the material past the fade out point was somehow undesirable and that the piece was edited. Does anyone know?
Anybody else notice a pattern here?

Rhythm Buddies and TU
Since 1972, every rhythm section has operated outside the context of the Greater Krim.
King Crimson and Eric Morecambe

I was at the Edinburgh concert on Thursday 17 Sep. It’s one of those positive live musical experiences that I will go on enjoying for the rest of my time. I never thought I would get to hear Easy Money, Schizoid Man live, and now I have! Anyway, at some point between songs I became aware of hearing Eric Morecambe and his line to Andrew Preview "I’m playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order". I was tickled to hear this and am still chuckling about it being included in the concert. I’m sure many others heard it, but what song was it played before?
The following night I went to hear PiL in Glasgow. That was a contrast, but also very enjoyable!

Whether audients loved or were underwhelmed by the latest shows there seem to be some recurring observations by posters.
Many have questioned Mr Levin’s sound mix. His bass/stick is not loud enough in some parts. When you have the best and he’s playing his ass off, he should be heard.
As for Mr Jakszyk’s vocals, every singer since Mr Lake has had detractors. Mr Haskell and Mr Burrell were often compared unfavourably to Lake. Mr Wetton at times had trouble hitting those high notes. Mr Belew’s vocals were either loved or hated. Jakszyk has the unenviable task to be compared to all of the others.
Oh and Mr Fripp, it seems that I am not the only one who would like to hear something from the Lizard album.

I can’t shake the feeling that if this lineup of King Crimson unleashed ’Fracture’ the consequences would be terrifying. Can anyone offer me reassurance that the RHVL’s commitment to the New Standard Tuning means that we are all safe?
few thoughts re the lengthy Bham comments

we are of course all entitled to our opinions.
There are however many parts of this with which I disagree.
I was in the stalls at Hackney & found the venue delightful. Courteous staff, comfortable seating & good sound & viewing.
I had been waiting over 40 years to hear some of this material played live & found the versions of for example "the letters" & "sailors tale" much more to my taste than pretty much anything they could have chosen in the 80’s canon (which I had heard live twice before at London gigs with different lineups). I freely admit to a preference for the earlier material which was well rendered here in new & excellent arrangements. The interplay of the 3 drummers was a highlight & I thought Robert’s guitar was actually more prominent than in the double trio duo lineups. One point I do agree on - could have done with TL’s bass turned up to 11 during the coda to Starless.
Crimson karaoke - you cannot be serious. That I find at best ill-judged & possibly actually offensive.
Sorry you were disappointed. I wasn’t - rates as very possibly the best gig I’ve seen in over 40 years of concerts. Don’t think I am alone & if by any chance a further UK tour happens in the future I’ll be first in line with my credit card at the ready.
UK 2015 SETLIST Analysis
:: Posted by Petitwazoo on September 21, 2015
There were eight tunes that turned up at every single show
Larks’ Tongues In Aspic (Part I)
Radical Action (To Unseat The Hold Of Monkey Mind)
Hell Hounds Of Krim
Court Of The Crimson King
21st Century Schizoid Man
‘ConstruKction of Light’ got put on the naughty step and was posted missing from the 2nd Manchester show, otherwise it would have been 100% also.
There was only one show, the final one in Edinburgh, where ‘The Letters’ wasn’t followed immediately by ‘Sailor’s Tale’.
‘Interlude’ was ever present, up until Manchester #1.
The cities of Birmingham & Edinburgh didn’t hear ‘One More Red Nightmare’ at either show.
Similarly Edinburgh didn’t get ‘Interlude’ at all and London must be wondering exactly what it did to deserve getting no ‘Red’
‘Vroom’ with only two performances (Aylesbury & London) must have been feeling quite smug and certainly looked to be a cert for ‘the least played tune of the tour’ until ‘A Scarcity of Miracles’ burst from its chrysalis and took flight on the very last night.
Great stuff. Greatly enjoyed Thursday at Edinburgh.
Thanks for the videos!

I just wanted to thank DGM for the wonderful gift of these live King Crimson videos from 2000 posted to Youtube. It feels like Christmas to me. What a wonderful surprise.

The title, Radical Action To Unseat The Hold of Monkey Mind seems pretty straight forward. There’s been a lot of speculation here but I’m not sure that those speculating are familiar with the term "monkey mind". I don’t know a lot about it but it is a term relating to meditation. The monkey mind is the active undisciplined consciousness that one seeks to tame with meditation, one could say, "unseating" it.
