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 set. 

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.

Endless Grief: an Age Of Greed characterized by the Abuse Of Trust.
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jun 21, 2016
From Robert Fripp’s Facebook page today:

Endless Grief undermined my confidence in the process of law, the public-school educated, the English Gentleman, chartered accountants and the professions, players within public life and charities: pretty much all those institutions that were an end-result of a long process of developing-standards in public and national life throughout C19-20th. Britain. In the postwar Dorset of my youth, I was brought up to have confidence in these institutions. In attempting to understand the mechanics of Endless Grief, I am also attempting to understand the present era: an Age Of Greed characterized by the Abuse Of Trust.

How to see all of this? The universe in a grain of sand, the Human Condition in one sorry management firm?

Robert’s diary: 12th March 2012

Development firm loses another appeal.


The EG Way continues?
DQ’s Tara Cubbon acted for Lloyds Bank International Limited (the “Bank”) in successfully striking out the claim by The Slegaby Estate Limited (“TSEL”) and Samuel George Alder (“Mr Alder”) against the Bank pursuant to the doctrine of res judicata and as an abuse of process...
His Worship further held that TSEL and Mr Alder had failed to treat the First Proceedings as they should have done. They had no excuse for not pursuing matters fully and adopting an “unduly casual attitude” in their response. This was contrary to the onus in the 2009 Rules on the expedition of litigation and the avoidance of multiplicity of proceedings and in His Worship’s view was an attempt to have “a second bite of the cherry” following the dismissal of their appeal in the First Proceedings.

Court confirms law on res judicata and abuse of process.

Beat & Three Of A Perfect Pair Pre-Order
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Jun 16, 2016
The new stereo and surround sound mixes of King Crimson’s Beat and Three Of A Perfect Pair are set to be released October 14th 2016.

The long-awaited albums represent the next installment in the acclaimed 40th Anniversary Series which began in 2009.

Beat was released in June 1982 just eight months after the 80s Crimson lineup debut album “Discipline”.

It marked the first occasion where a King Crimson line-up had remained intact for a two album stretch and was also the first album by the band to employ a separate producer – Rhett Davies. The juxtaposition of lyrics heavily influenced by 50s beat luminaries Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady.

The complex polyrhythmic musical textures of the ‘80s Crimson, the strength of the songs and the cohesion of the studio performances, all helped the album chart upon release in the US and the UK.

Songs like Waiting Man, Neal and Jack and Me and Heartbeat became firm favourites with fans and concert goers. Heartbeat in particular was an FM radio regular in the US and even merited a promo film shot for the then-emerging music TV market, while one of the album’s twin instrumental tracks, Sartori In Tangier, anticipated the emerging interest in African based rhythmic styles that would become such a fascination for musicians in the latter part of the decade.

As ever, Crimson was pushing forward, looking for new methods to communicate internally as a band and externally with an audience. It was, perhaps, the nearest King Crimson ever came to the rock music ‘mainstream’.

As with other albums in the King Crimson CD/DVD-A series, the stereo CD features a new stereo mix by Robert Fripp and  Steven Wilson, while the DVD-A features 5.1 mixes of the album by Steven Wilson, high resolution stereo mixes of the original and  new stereo mixes. Additionally, the original album is presented in rough mix form along with additional audio extras, video performance footage of two songs from The Alabamahalle, Germany and the original promo film for Heartbeat.

Having released two albums in a nine month period between October 1981 and July 1982, Three of a Perfect Pair is the final part of the recorded trilogy begun with Discipline and Beat. Originally released in April 1984, from the pointillist minimalism of the title track through to the urgent rush of Sleepless and the album’s closer Larks’ Tongues in Aspic III - the only reference to the 1970s incarnations of the band – Crimson’s distinctive mixture of rock, electronica, funk and pure pop songs, ensured the group’s status as one of the most interesting and innovative bands of the decade.

Following the release of the album, the band embarked on a tour of Japan and from there America and Canada. At the completion of the last date in July 1984, Fripp, Bruford, Levin and Belew went their separate ways to pursue their respective solo commitments.

King Crimson would reconvene in the mid- 1990s with a double trio line-up featuring all of the 1908s band members, while the band’s current line-up (2014 – present) features both Robert Fripp and Tony Levin from the 1980s band.

King Crimson’s final album of the 1980s is augmented with extra tracks newly mixed for the 2016 edition on CD.

As with other albums in the King Crimson CD/DVD-A series, the stereo CD features a new stereo mix by Robert Fripp and Steven Wilson plus additional tracks, while the DVD-A features 5.1 mixes of the album by Steven Wilson and high resolution stereo mixes of the original and new stereo mixes. Additionally, the original album bonus tracks from the 30th anniversary CD are included as is the promo film for ‘Sleepless’, a song originally released as 12” single which became an unlikely hit on the New York dance scene of the time.
