Wetton & District 97
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Sep 1, 2014
A live CD capturing a set of King Crimson songs performed by District 97 and former King Crimson lead singer John Wetton is set to be released October 6th. 



Thus sayeth the blurb:
The album includes three songs from the iconic landmark album RED which inspired many musicians including Kurt Cobain.  This CD also captures numerous other well-known songs from the three King Crimson studio albums John Wetton played and sang on, plus their earlier hit 21st Century Schizoid Man.
This is the first release of this recording and features many tracks which are now rarely heard live.
1. One More Red Nightmare (4:41)
2. The Great Deceiver (3:38)
3. Lament (4:19)
4. The Night Watch (5:31)
5. Fallen Angel (5:47)
6. Book Of Saturday (3:07)
7. 21st Century Schizoid Man (5:25)
8. Starless (4:47)
9. Easy Money (5:27)
 
You can listen to a sampler here.

Pre-orders UK and USA. The album will be listed on iTunes in September 2014 ahead of its 6th October worldwide release date.


On This Date 45 Years Ago
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Aug 31, 2014
On this date 45 years ago King Crimson finished recording their debut album at Wessex Studios. The last item to go in the can was Robert Fripp's guitar solo on 21st Century Schizoid Man completed at around 8.30 a.m. 


Epitaph On Cello
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Aug 31, 2014
My thanks to Albemuth for the folowing heads-up: A couple of days ago I crossed over a review of a new disk ("Uncovered") by cellist Maya Beiser.  As is something of a fad these days, her disk covers pop-rock songs in a classical setting.  The general opinion is that her disk is a cut above the others. 

The exciting thing for us is that one of the songs she covers is King Crimsonís Epitaph.  I think she caught the mood of Epitaph very nicely, using multi-tracked cellos; itís a lovely track.  Beiserís disk is being (legally) streamed at various locations on the web, so take a listen.  (See her TED performance of Reichís "Cello Counterpoint" while youíre at it.)  I note that she will be on tour at the same time as KC in September, but on opposite sides of the US coast."

#KC2014 - A kCaption kCompetition WINNER
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Aug 30, 2014
A few days ago we asked you to provide a caption to a photograph taken by KC Guitar tech hero, Biff. Today I asked Biff to pick the one that made him smirk, guffaw or generally tickle his funny bone.




"Let me get this straight, you are seriously trying to tell me
the goat ate my guitar?"


That was sent in by Clockgate, who wins a download of his choice from the DGMLive library.  Many thanks to everyone who took part. There'll be another caption competition next week.



#KC2014 - More Photos Please
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Aug 30, 2014
Here's some more photos taken by Trev Wilkins of the team at work in Applehead.

Trev writes: Looks like we're finally in full 'GO' mode after installing the UK Switchblade. Robert now has everything as it should be after a few days of using a limited set of controls. I have to say though he was very patient and understanding throughout considering he'd got such restrictions. Currently wading through finding the best way to back up the Switchblade without losing anything. We have a new one that needs programming as a backup. Onwards!



Around the studio...















A many-handed beast of bass terror spotted by Biff...



The many-handed beast of bass terror isn't the only wildlife around the place. This snake was safely dispatched by tour manager, Dave Salt. (neither Dave nor the snake were harmed during its removal).



Meanwhile, the Crims are locked in deep discussions...
