And one more funny memory
:: Posted by randomelement2 on November 20, 2014
A friend of mine was doing a film for a college class, and wanted something with a circuslike vibe for a sort of dream sequence, so I lent him No Pussyfooting and suggested playing Swastika Girls. When the woman doing the sound played it, she said "I think thereís something wrong with the speakers".

As I remember VROOM was about 30 or 40 minutes and it was awesome and it was soon after followed up by THRAK... Why in the world would anyone have a problem with 40 minutes of great music? Most complete lps were about 40 minutes back in the day. And look how quickly this 40 minutes is going to be delivered to us. Iím stoked! bring it!

New album early next year. Yay!
A transcript of great speech that really chimes in with a lot RFís themes at http://parkerhiggins.net/2014/11/will-need-writers-can-remember-freedom-ursula-k-le-guin-national-book-awards/ (Sid will like it too)
When I was at university, I was invited to eat at another studentís place, and took No Pussyfooting round. It was playing in the background while everybody was talking about stuff (probably student politics and the Drama Soc), but after a while silence entered, and somebody asked "What is this? I thought it was a buzzing insect to start with, but it has something"
Weirdly, and appropriately, the quote at the bottom of the page as I write this is "Music is the architecture of silence."
Humming for joy!

What a joy this news is, of a King Crimson live album in January. It will be the essential companion piece to the memories of my first KC show in Boston 2014
The new live album...

Very, very sad face.

Played the original vinyl at a big family Xmas party shortly after it was first issued. My uncleís pup howled hid head off at it. Will never forget that.
New King Crimson Live Album Set For January 2015

"New King Crimson Live Album Set For January 2015" like I am supposed to be excited NOW to get whatever 40 minutes someone decides to dole out to me, rather than an entire concert "warts & all;" BFD :( However, this tidbit tells me what I need to know for future, so I can stop wasting time on Mark VIII and decide what few items I still want to download from days of yore, so thanks for that.
New Live of the Mighty Crim
:: Posted by royskagen on November 20, 2014
I am very happy to read that a Live album of the Mighty Crim is to be released in January í15 ☺But I donít see why itís gonna be a mini album of 40 min only, said in other words thatís maybe 6 tracks. ⚠⚠ Humming like hell I am sure itís gonna be anyway... Looking forward to it! 👍
Great Story...No Pussyfooting

" "Well, that just goes to show you that true love can blossom under any circumstances. I think Iíll put that in my sermon tomorrow!"
Hilarious and angular. This man of God is truly a Crimson fan.
As for No Pussyfooting, Iíd been seeing it in the bins of Bleecker Bobís (when it was up by 8th street) forever. It had a cool cover and from Eno, Bowie and new wave records I knew that this Fripp guy seemed to consistently make interesting music (Iíd even tried to get into a few Frippertronics performances but always found out too late). Since it was an import, I think, it was pricey and (since I didnít have much money in those days), I didnít want to end up with something completely experimental that Iíd only listen to once or twice.
But after a year or two I bought it and was mesmerized. Yeah, it was one giant "song" per side and it was indeed improvised, but there was Frippís lightning-sounding guitar and the whole thing built up...it did sort of have a structure. Instead of being throwaway it felt like a really bold statement: Kinda ballsy, really, and it was.
No Pussyfooting memories
:: Posted by randomelement2 on November 19, 2014
I was 17 when it came out. I may have come across it accidentally in a record store (remember record stores?) and bought it because of Fripp. I hadnít the slightest idea who Eno was at the time, not to mention Roxy Music. The trendy bands of the day were Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull. Anyway, I bought it expecting King Crimson as played by these 2 gents (what do expect from a 17 year old?). I wasnít at all prepared for what I heard. If I remember correctly, I was thoroughly confused by this album, and put it away after listening to it once. I eventually gave it another chance because of Fripp, and fell in love with it. My musical taste expanded because of this; if it werenít for the Fripp connection, Iím sure I would never have listened to it again.
As an aside, I remember playing No Pussyfooting for a couple of people a few years later. The first side was almost over, and one of them asked when it was going to start. Those nasty expectations again.
