|P1 Missing Seven Minutes Restored
|:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 5, 2006
When this gig was first uploaded it was missing seven
minutes worth of music – a fact that went unnoticed by all and sundry until the
mighty Vargan alerted us to this lamentable omission.
After digging around in the labyrinthine vaults of DGM, ‘Stormy’
Mundy has found the missing track – a catchy little bolero-based foot-tapper –
and returned it to its rightful place as the penultimate number of the first
Anyone who bought the original release should access their
accounts and download the complete concert.
How did such an omission happen in the first place? Here's how.
The four Projekct one shows were recorded by David Singleton
onto ADATs, which are effectively three VHS video machines linked together.
During the first set, there was a problem with one of these tapes - and during
the audience applause after the third improv, the tapes were switched off, and
set of tapes from a previous night (which still had some unused space)
inserted. After this improv - the original set of tapes were put back in for
the remainder of the set.
As Alex ‘Stormy’ Mundy was only uploading night four to
DGMLive, he hadn't seen the other tapes - one of which is clearly labelled as
containing the "penultimate improv from first set night four" - which
has now been restored to its rightful place.
But the bizarre feature of all of this is that the
"join", where the machines were switched off, the tapes removed and
then not used until some seven minutes later, is completely inaudible. The
concert that was uploaded had not been doctored. Anyone with the original
download (now a collectable item?!) can listen to the join between the fourth
and fifth improvs - somewhere there should be an audible "leap" where
seven precious minutes were stolen and put onto a different set of tapes. Call
us deaf, but we can't hear it.

Richard Palmer-James' Takeaway
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Oct 14, 2016
Best known to Crimheads for his lyrics to Larks' Tongues In Aspic, Starless And Bible Black and Red, Richard Palmer-James has released his debut solo album, Takeaway.
Thus sayeth the blurb...
Supertramp founding member & King Crimson songwriter Richard Palmer-James has released his debut solo album “Takeaway”! An English songwriter & guitarist, Richard is best known for having written lyrics to several songs by the progressive rock group King Crimson in the early 1970s.
Says Richard, “Having spent the last few decades writing words for other people to sing, and thus being obliged to comply with the ambitions and sensibilities of others, I wanted to present a collection of songs that are uncompromisingly my own.
“I've been trying them out in club and pub appearances as a singer/songwriter, and they seem to work, but I'm very curious to see what sort of reaction this album production, which was realised with the indispensable help of a few talented colleagues from the Munich music scene, might elicit.
“The recordings differ stylistically from most of the stuff I worked on as a hired hand - probably because I enjoy playing acoustic instruments and writing pieces which involve storytelling.”
Richard Palmer-James got his start in the music business playing in various Bournemouth bands: The Corvettes, The Palmer-James Group (formed with Alec James), Tetrad, and Ginger Man, all of which also included John Wetton on bass and vocals.
He was a founding member of Supertramp; he played guitar, sang vocals and wrote the lyrics for their self-titled debut album under the name Richard Palmer and co-wrote the lyrics of the song “Goldrush”, a song written during his days in the band and finally recorded on their 2002 album “Slow Motion”.
Richard wrote lyrics for three of King Crimson's albums: “Larks' Tongues in Aspic”, “Starless and Bible Black”, and “Red”. He did not participate in any of King Crimson's recordings, but worked with John Wetton and David Cross after Robert Fripp disbanded the group in 1974.
In 1978 Richard was visited by John Wetton and W.J. Hutcheson, who were his bandmates in Tetrad, and they recorded as “Jack-Knife” an album with the German drummer Curt Cress in 10 days called “I Wish You Would”. He also wrote the English lyrics for the Italo Disco inventors La Bionda.
In 1997 he released a CD with former bandmate John Wetton under the title “Monkey Business”, a compilation of unreleased material including some songs that were recorded for the first time in studio, like a King Crimson tune called “Doctor Diamond”. In 2015 “I Wish You Would” and “Monkey Business” were released together as a twofer and that continues to be available.
Today Richard makes his living mainly as a lyricist and performing on guitar live. In support of his new album, Richard Palmer-James will be playing showcase concerts in the UK and Germany. You can buy Takeaway at Amazon or via iTunes.

Here's a shot of Alex 'Stormy' Mundy with his Radical Action drum head proudly in place. "I say in place, technically, I have a 16" Kick, but the KC head is 20" so it normally hangs on the wall of my drum room."
Alex wonders how many other drummers picked one of these splendid KC drum heads? Although there's no prize if you fancy sharing then send your pix to email@example.com
