Music and Creativity Podcast
:: Posted by Dr_Erock on March 17, 2016
There is no specific RF, Crim, or DGM content. So far. But there are fascinating discussions of music, creativity, and philosophy.
Nakedly Examined Music interviews creators about their music and features in-depth discussions of several of the artistsí tracks.
I recommend episode #7, featuring guitar looper, Beefheart, and Jeff Buckley collaborator Gary Lucas.
One of the tracks is a Lucas/Peter Hamill collaboration (so there is a little RF connection there).
Of note for Crafties are discussions of relationships between artistic intention, collaboration, and work with the marketplace. I find it fascinating that Lucas waited until 1990 before becoming a full-time musician. He had invitations to serve as a sideman but would not move from amateur to professional status until he could realize his intention as he wished.

Now that the physical release is out, would it be possible for previous downloaders to obtain a PDF of the booklet?
Back yard Crimson!

"my new request is for King Crimson to play a show in my back yard next summer"
Iím lobbying for Crimson to play the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, the main stage of which is a few hundred yards from my house: Iíve heard The Who, Mumford and Sons and other bands by sitting on my front steps. (But if Crimson played Iíd actually buy a ticket and attend in pajamas.)

I disagree with the list on one factor: "Larkís Tongues In Aspic" should have ranked MUCH higher!
Interesting prog list
:: Posted by albemuth on March 15, 2016
Here is another news item that I missed during the fall 2015 tour, a list of "25 best progressive rock albums." Maybe you guys posted it but, if so, I missed that too.
As the author himself admits, these sorts of "rankings" do not mean much. But the reflections by Sean Murphy (who Iíve never heard of) are worth reading. It is interesting to see ITCOTCK listed as a "Rosetta Stone" of prog. Although thatís not true for me, I can understand the opinion! But I agree, without reservation, with the statement: "Fripp asked a lot of his audience, but heís always asked more of himself."
I like most of the choices. The only place I differ strongly is Rush, a band Iíve never found fun or interesting. Iím not saying that they are not great artists. Taste is a strange thing.
Well played, DGM. Well played.

But now that Iíve proven that hectoring gets results, my new request is for King Crimson to play a show in my back yard next summer. I will of course grill some hamburgers and hot dogs, and offer some local beer, and we can all play badminton. Rest assured my Amish neighbors wonít use electronic recording devices.
Thank you for the Plumpton show! I am now one step closer to full fetish-ization regarding the 1969 lineup.
ThraKaTTak and ATTAKcATTRrak Recording Sources?
:: Posted by pcontos on March 14, 2016
I posted this in November and shortly after David Singleton said in his diary that he would eventually posted the sources for Attackatrak. I donít think he has yet so Iíll ask kindly again. Also, if David, Alex or someone can help with the other compilations listed below that would be much appreciated:
Has anyone ever determined where each of the improvs come from on both of these discs? I thought that information might be in the new THRAK Box but they didnít reveal. I saw on Wiki that there was a list on ThaKaTTak but I donít know how accurate it is. David Singleton just did the video explaining how he chose the improvs and you can see some of the names of places on the computer he was working on but I donít know if that is what ended up on the final disc. Can anyone help?
Iíd also be interested in Projeckt One Jazz Cafť Suite Collectorís Club and Schizoid Improvs from Ladies of the Road.
Sunday All Over KC and The Humans
:: Posted by RickyM on March 14, 2016
Over at the Toyah Website, in her March Blog posting, some interesting news re: SAOTW as well as KC and the Humans:
"Bill Rieflin is taking 2016 off for a sabbatical. Which means, all being good, work on HUMANS 4 can resume in 2017. I am still writing in the mean time and I am spending my Birthday with Bill in Seattle in May.
Because Bill is neither with KING CRIMSON this year nor the HUMANS Robert is talking of re-releasing a live album of SUNDAY ALL OVER THE WORLD and a REMIXED version of KNEELING AT THE SHRINE because he will not record any new KC until Bill is back in action next year, this means SAOTW has his time and attention.
I doubt the release will happen this yearÖÖ.but it has gone into production as far as planning is concerned."
So, it looks like no new KC studio recordings w/o Bill R. until he returns to active status but some interesting releases coming well into 2017 nonetheless. SAOTW was such an underrated project. I heard they were fantastic live, but personally never had that good fortune to see them firsthand. Now, a potential live release - Yeah!
Hope we Yanks get to see another US KC tour in either late 2016 or at some point in 2017. Fingers crossed.
