Crimson at festivals
:: Posted by Teledan on July 10, 2014

I went to an event called the H.O.R.D.E. festival sometime back around ’96 or ’97, specifically ’cuz Crimso was booked. I thought "No need to arrive early, they’ll be put on sometime later in the day". Even though we were there by around 2:00, they had already played! Bummer! My friend and I stuck around for some of the more pedestrian fare, Lenny Kravitz, Blues Traveler, et. al., and made the most of it.

They did try back in 2003:

"Info, for those UK enthusiasts who wonder why Crimson are not playing in England this year: the Glastonbury Festival turned us down. We are not cool enough for Glastonbury, it seems. Once this might have given me concern." RF Diary, 29 March 2003.

To avoid a disappointment..

Crimson at Glastonbury?
:: Posted by emory0 on July 10, 2014

"Wouldn’t it be hella awesome if King Crimson played Glastonbury?"

Theoretically I’d kind of agree, except Crimson would probably be relegated to an early slot. I’d LOVE to see some top-selling headlining band say, "You know what? I’m going to bring the greatest rock band in the world out" or some such, and then Crimson comes kickin’ ass and takin’ names on a prime-time audience completely unprepared for them.

Ah, but that’ll never happen. The closest that ever came to reality was probably when Crimson was the warm-up band for Tool. I remember Adrian Belew saying he overheard some tool fans saying, "those other guys were good, too", and then laughing that King Crimson was "the other guys".

Wouldn’t it be hella awesome if King Crimson played Glastonbury? The gig of the century imo.

Yes, being a big fan of UC I paid more attention to what was on the mantle than the dinosaur! Thanks to ever did the grab!

Nice to see modern students are interested in serious music!

I’ve always figured they’d be a bit more Ravenclaw, except Tony. Tony would somehow be in every house, because TONY IS F***ING EVERYWHERE.

RFSQ show 1633
:: Posted by MookieKeebler on July 07, 2014

Way off current topics, but... does anyone know why, other than the noted clipping on "Eye of the Needle", the RFSQ show of November 16, 1992, Club Quattro, Nagoya, Japan, has such an unusually low, especially for a board DAT recording, DGM audio quality rating of only three stars?  The short mp3 clips have plenty of what sound like mp3 compression artifacts, but I know many noise reduction methods produce similar-sounding artifacts.  I really want this show (as FLAC), but not if it has those artifacts throughout due to possible noise reduction measures taken, or some other cause, which would be on the FLAC version as well.  I would particularly like to hear from anyone who has downloaded the FLAC of this show for their assessment of the sound quality.  I know there is a generous amount of other RFSQ material available, but certain parts, particularly the soundscapes, on this earlier show, seem substantially different from subsequent shows.  Thank you, and my apologies for being poor at brevity.

The Sorting Hat
:: Posted by NoiseMachine on July 07, 2014

I clicked the link to the Fripp signed Strat the other day and left it open on my computer. When I came back into the room my girlfriend said "You left that picture of King Crimson up on your computer, but I thought it was just a bunch of Slytherins" (A dormatory/house in the world of Harry Potter for that don’t know.)

Bill Rieflin DOES look a lot like a relative of Draco Malfoy, Tony & P@ look like they’re up to no good... And let’s be real, King Crimson would DEFINITELY be a band of Slytherins.

on a lark
:: Posted by starmore on July 06, 2014

see how a tour generates interest.?...more random chit chat:
The tidbit of joy available does make one think of the great double drumming on Lark’s pt1.
1) Lark’s Pt 1would be a great tune to do on this tour, especially for the improv section which could be different every night and allow for both a  "repertory" show and  new material. And it does not "have" to have a violinist (although if you want one Mat Maneri is availible, seems pretty crowded up there as it is)
2) I really love LIZARD, despite all its flaws.  I really hope they can at least try Cirkus (not to mention all of side one).
3) Is "Lady of the dancing water" based on Pachelbel’s canon? The piano part on the run- through made me think of  it.
4) Play whatever you guys want, this is just fanboy talk......might as well feel like a teenager again.......
5) Someone in the band should check out Elliot Carter, especially the String quartets.
#1 is really amazing. Talk about Polymetric/polyrhythm /Polymorphic .
Also the Double Concerto for Piano and Harpsichord, especially for the sonic grouping and   layout when playing in a more orchestral hall like the Verizon (in PA).
