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.

Bruford & Crimson!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Mar 3, 2015
Bill Bruford will be talking about King Crimson and more in a pre-concert Q&A at a performance by the Delta Sax Quartet. The quartet who have in the past tackled repertoire by Phillip Glass, Steve Reich, Terry Riley and Soft Machine will be performing ex-Earthworks pianist Gwilym Simcock's latest composition, Crimson! which re-imagines some of the Crimson canon. The talk and concert takes place on Sunday March 15th at Surrey University. You can check out the details and costs over on the website.


On This Day 12 Years Ago
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Mar 3, 2015
King Crimson were scheduled to play The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA. However, Adrian fell ill and was unable to play. Rather than cancel the concert, Robert, Pat and Trey decided to do a P3 show with an offer of a refund for anyone disappointed not to be seeing the full line-up.

Pat Mastelotto recalls "Almost always Robert, Trey and I soundcheck before Adrian. He likes to get in and out of the venue as soon as possible so he comes just before. The rest of us would come early, rehearse and practice all the way through. So it wasn't that peculiar that Adrian wasn't there right away. Then as it got closer to the end of soundcheck and he still wasn't there that's when the decision was made to offer a refund or have P3 play. It was fairly last minute."

After P3 had finished the trio took the front of the stage to do a question and and answer session which lasted just under half and hour. You can download that Q&A for free right here. The KC as P3 gig is available for purchase right here.
