Larks' BIg Box Set S
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Nov 13, 2012

It's come to our attention that a copy of the Larks' Tongues In Aspic big box set is being sold on Ebay for a truly ridiculous sum, claiming that the limited edition is sold out.

While things are indeed heading that way, and that DGM Mail Order has sold out its allocation of the box, there are still plenty of copies of available at a non-gouging price from those nice people at Burning Shed.

Don't give these rip-off merchants on Ebay your trade and save yourself a buck or ten!

The View From Trev's Office...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Aug 19, 2015
Trev Wilkins, whose been looking after Robert Frippís rig and much else besides, has posted this update on the rehearsals.


So yesterday there were a few problems with Robert Frippís guitar rig (Sirius Probe) but after much techy searching and tweaking and fiddling it turned out to be the Eventide 8000ís had reset to factory defaults which didnít work at all for his requirements. It took a while to find the fault but the MIDI settings were all wrong which was the pointer to the problem.

It turned out the Bypass control was set wrong for what we need so it was muting the input when it should have been bypassing it. The units were receiving all MIDI data and going into what I call ífruit machineí mode where they roll around loading presets. A bit technical but once re-programmed in the menu system it worked again as it should.

The rig is very complex so fault finding isnít easy as everything has a íknock oní effect on the rest of the system. Anyway, the fix worked and today it has run without problems.

This meant I could finish a bit earlier tonight and have dinner with the American írhythmí contingent. Always a good night out with a very nice (and talented) bunch of guys. Add to this the fact that weíve found a really nice little family run Italian restaurant and a cheap cab firm and weíre in a good place for the ongoing rehearsals.

The band seemed to be finding their feet musically today, so all is good at this point in time. New and very listenable material is sitting alongside some seriously classic Crimson tracks so this will definitely be a great tour for all of the fans. I expect that if there was a fan set list, this would be it!

Seems a long way off at the moment but looking forward to hitting the road now.

Onwards!
