I would love for David Singleton to expand on this quote in his next diary entry:

"And on my first morning in the office, I had a surprisingly clear vision of a possible path for the Construkction of Light re-issue, which will follow THRAK (if we overlook the troublesome pair of BEAT and Three of a Perfect Pair, which continue to defy all attempts to get them out the door)."

So what is the reason behind the constant delays on these two 40th anniversary reissues? And does this mean that neither one of these albums will be reissued this year?

In David’s entry he says:

... if we overlook the troublesome pair of BEAT and Three of a Perfect Pair, which continue to defy all attempts to get them out the door...

Overlook. Does this mean that they won’t be released? I certainly hope not. Also, if the come out when will it be? It was announced last spring that it would appear along with the Starless box, then that it would appear around Christmas, then early 2015. Now we’re in July and we probably won’t see them until Christmas. Come on!

I was an original member of the King Crimson Collector’s Club. Recently, while reorganizing my CD collection I noticed there was no Collector’s Club 42. Since I had purchased all of the releases, for a moment I thought it had been lost. However, when I checked online to see which recording it was, I read that Club 42, supposedly planned as Studio Sessions - 1983, was never released.

What is the story behind Collector’s Club Release 42? Why was this number mysteriously skipped, and are there still plans to one day release it?

Just curious.


This was put on hold as at the time a planned expanded Three Of A Perfect Pair was scheduled.  It’s since been decided that this missing Club is not in fact missing but simply contributing silence to the Club series. The 40th anniversary edition of 3OAPP - containing  the material on the proposed KCCC release and much more besides - release date hasn't yet been set. 

prime meters
:: Posted by johnfgibson on July 22, 2015

I am composing, for a young mathematically-inclined friend, a list of King Crimson songs in prime meters. For kicks I’m including the free-meter intro to Larks’ Tongues in Aspic part I as 0, even though 0 is not prime. What the heck. But I cannot think of a piece in 11. Can anyone help? I’d also be grateful for corrections and further choices.

0. Larks’ Tongues in Aspic, part I, intro
2. Night Watch, Sailor’s Tale
3. Song of the Gulls
5. Larks’ Tongues in Aspic, part II, Discipline, Indiscipline, FracKtured, ...
7. Level Five
11. ??
13. Starless

All hail the mighty seven-headed beast of Crim.


Moebius endgültig aufgenommen :-(
:: Posted by davidly on July 22, 2015

With respect to the recurrent & more recent conversation on the GB re. in the matter of Live vs. Tape: I was fortunate to see Dieter Moebius with Joachim Roedelius as Cluster live the only time they played the states, and with Roedelius and Michael Rother as Harmonia in Berlin for their reunion not quite as many years ago.

I won’t delve into the aspects of the environs at that time that may have hampered for those performances’ durations the optimal audient uptake of the music, as I believe the posters know the subject well enough. I will say that, absolutely, given the choice, I would prefer to be able to see the recently departed Kluster man of Harmonia again live, and not just because I cannot.

Notwithstanding his manifold field of influence — which, let’s face it, is mortally afoot and, while forever present, not a substitute for the pure original version of the man & his creative work — I do give thanks to his having been recorded often, for without that, Dieter Moebius might be no more.

YouTube takedowns
:: Posted by Rockette on July 21, 2015

>with all these videos, they are put on YouTube with integrity and all due respects to the artist(s). But some get taken down and others don’t. All I ask is why.

IMO putting videos on YouTube without the artists’ permission is disrespectful and displays no integrity. Love of the music is no excuse. It’s hard for artists to keep track of unathorised uploads - musicians have better things to do with their time - which may be why some videos stay on line longer than others.

Fripp Speaks
:: Posted by UnusualMuse on July 20, 2015

"It’s a lot of fun, and I’m profoundly grateful to be in this band." Wonderful words to hear coming from Fripp.

Excitement builds!!
:: Posted by DrDick on July 20, 2015

Wooohooo!!! My tickets to the gig at the Lowry have arrived, my first KC gig since Shepherd’s Bush in 2000! I’m even taking my wife along! She enjoyed seeing Stickmen in Manchester a few years back so fingers crossed she enjoys this too!

Any love for Winnipeg?
:: Posted by onesidys on July 19, 2015

’Just wondering, but does anyone know if KC considered performing in Winnipeg sometime between the Toronto and Calgary dates?
