PJ Crook Exhibition
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Apr 17, 2012

There's an up and coming exhibition which will be of interest to fans of PJ Crook. From the blurb: In 2006, to coincide with the Queen’s first visit to the Baltic States, the Estonian Embassy in London organised an exhibition in Tallinn bringing together Estonia’s foremost painter and printmaker Juri Arrak and British artist PJ Crook. Now the honour is returned and Juri joins Gloucestershire artist PJ in exhibiting at Gloucester City Museum. Although both artists are quintessentially of their own nationalities they have in common the human figure at the centre of all their works and the spirituality that imbues them. This exhibition runs from 12th May to 30th June.

Tony's Game

Larks' Turntable...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Oct 21, 2014
A couple of years ago we were contacted by site visitor Max who, along with his wife Samantha,  had created a rather fine looking modified Pioneer  turntable.



Now Max has been back in touch with his latest creation. "We liked creating the Discipline turntable so much we decided to repeat the process This time we used another turntable a Lenco L75/S and another album cover." 

I think you'll agree the results are rather splendid.







Any other examples of KC-modified audio equipment out there? Let us know.

Starless In Situ
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Oct 18, 2014
The multi-disc Starless box set got mentioned on national radio this morning.



The name check came on BBC Radio 5 Live Danny Baker show when the DJ mentioned having just taken delivery of his copy. It's a fleeting reference but it can be listened to for the next week via the BBC iPlayer at around 11.08.

In the meantime, please start sending us pictures of the box set when it arrives at your house via this email address marked STARLESS IN SITU and we'll start posting them on the site. Don't forget we like to see a shelfie as well!

Release Schedule Update
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Oct 18, 2014
A lot of folks have been asking about the availability of downloads from the last tour. As Mr.Stormy indicated in his reply to a guestbook question earlier this week, there are no downloads of the 2014 tour envisaged at this stage. Jakko Jakszyk is currently listening through all the recordings of the concerts assessing what might be made available for release in the spring of 2015. 

Staying with the 2014 tour, the good news is that the phenomenally successful Elements Of King Crimson tour box will be available for mail order (Inner Knot) and regular retail from November.

The 40th Anniversary Edition of Beat will now also be 2015. While many will be disappointed at the news, the prevailing view is that it's better to have the CD/DVD-A release as good as it possibly could be, and in order to achieve that the release date has been shifted.

Elsewhere, there are plenty of reasons to be cheerful if you’re a Crim fan. Islands is now available on vinyl, as is Fripp & Eno Live In Paris (Inner Knot & Burning Shed), Travis & Fripp Discretion (Inner Knot & Burning Shed).  Of course, if that's not enough then the Starless box (Inner Knot & Burning Shed) set is now available.

Remembering Boz
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Oct 17, 2014
Earlier this week DGMLive Towers received the following post from site visitor, PigletsDad: “I was in Edinburgh over the weekend with my wife, and we took the bus out to Leith, and walked back to the Botanic gardens along the Water of Leith footpath. Just outside the Malmaison hotel in Leith, on the East side of the river, I found Boz Burrell’s simple but touching memorial.”

The memorial wasn’t something we’d heard about before PigletsDad’s post and a little googling revealed the origins of the memorial itself was something of a mystery as this media item from 2011 indicates.

More inquisitive mouse clicking reveals the memorial, in the shape of a bass clef, was made by sculptor James Parker who reveals that it was commissioned by Boz’s widow, Cath.

You can view the piece on James’ flickr page and these photos taken by Hugh and originally posted on the Black Cat Board.
