Plastic Pennies
:: Posted by indoorgames on April 19, 2016

Hi Crimheads!

I have a puzzle for you. In Giles, Giles & Fripp song "Plastic Pennies" there are such lines: "Popping shiny pennies into knickerbocker glories / Palaces of plastic listening to the funny storiesĒ. The first line seems to be about spending money for desserts? Knickerbocker glory, if you donít know, is a traditional English dessert consisting of ice cream, fruits, jelly and cream layers. The second line is much more mysterious. What it is about? Palaces of plastic are listening to the stories, or maybe palaces are used for plastic listening? In this case what it is Ė plastic listening? Maybe it is listening of LPs? And what are these funny stories? Iím very interested in what do you think about this.

Hi, guys! Whether somebody knows the meaning of the word INDALICREE (or something like this) with which the second line of the Meltdown lyrics begins:
"Now he lies buried in metaphors
INDALICREE wonít let him breath
Distorting the truth..."
I will be very grateful for the help!

Ask and I shall receive!

Many thanks indeed!

Fwiw I was holding out on these downloads hoping they would see release (in part, at least) on physical disc, possibly a 2CD best of collection as part of the Collectable King Crimson series. I assume that is very unlikely at this point.

I guess now I can compile my own though. So, win!

Happy 45th birthday to the Zoom Club residency!

Is now a good time to ask if the recordings of those shows could be bundled together for a special price for us slackers who have yet to grab them?


Ben Monder Windowpane
:: Posted by albemuth on April 14, 2016

Today, by chance, I noticed that there was a video for Bowieís last song from the last album.  The video for "I Canít Give Everything Away" uses simple graphics (with no image of Bowie) but is weirdly affecting.  As many will know, Ben Monderís wonderful guitar work appears in the last passages, reminding us of Frippís contribution, and guiding us toward the infinite.  The video responds appropriately (stick with it) and feels like a perfect farewell to our good spaceman.

Ben Monder appears to be a very significant guitarist.  He is a "jazz" player, I suppose, but that label does not well describe what he does  Check out his composition "Windowpane," which overlaps a bit with the meditative sounds and discipline of master Fripp. 

As influential as Fripp has been, I do not see him as an easy collaborator.  I cannot imagine him working with either Frissell or Frith, although it is not hard to imagine Frissell and Frith working together (as they did).  That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the Amlehn-Fripp-Jeanrenaud collaboration.

Three of a perfect pair?
:: Posted by DanAnderson on April 13, 2016

Frith, Fripp, Frisell?

I thought of that one a long time ago. Phew. If the three of them could get together and work something out amongst themselves - whoosh! Frisell and Frith worked together in John Zornís Naked City. Frisell and Vernon Reid did a duet album some time ago.

This "three of a perfect pair" would be an odd mixing of three of the premier exploratory guitarists of my lifetime. Wishful thinking, I fear, but...

Dear Jim,

Heck, man, go for the trifecta: Fripp, Frissell and Frith!

I've been told that recently screened episodes of the vintage UK cop drama set in the late '60s/early '70s have included snippets of Court and Epitaph as part of their time/place setting soundtrack.
