David Enthoven
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Aug 12, 2016
David Enthoven, the co-founder of EG Management, has died. He was 72.

Enthoven, along with his business partner, John  Gaydon, was absolutely essential in helping King Crimson achieve international success in 1969, with David mortgaging his house to finance the recording of In The Court Of The Crimson King.

David, along with John and Robert, pioneered the forward-looking, artist-friendly business model whereby the artist licensed their work to the record company, which in 1969 was something relatively unknown.  

Enthoven and Gaydon were on hand to bring TRex, ELP and Roxy Music to the world stage and in its early days EG stood out as an innovative company within the music industry of the day.

In later years David fell foul of alcohol and substance abuse. Despite many personal setbacks he came back to establish IE Management with business partner, Tim Clarke, with Robbie Williams as a client.

It’s no exaggeration to say David Enthoven’s involvement in the story of King Crimson was pivotal and decisive.

Enthoven reconnected with Robert Fripp and the world of King Crimson several years ago,  offering advice and support on various projects and undertakings. This morning, Robert Fripp commented, "David Enthoven was the heart of EG."


The BBC have covered David’s passing as have The Daily Mirror.


Sample Dizrhythmia Too
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Aug 11, 2016
Dizrhythmia Too, the new album featuring Gavin Harrison and Jakko Jakszyk, has a few samples online for your listening delight.   

You can listen to some of the album here.

Dizrhythmia is the collective name adopted in the 1980s by Jakko Jakszyk (guitars,keyboards, vocals) Gavin Harrison (drums and percussion), Danny Thompson, (double bass) and Pandit Dinesh (percussion, vocals). The quartet released their first album in 1988.



An eclectic mixture effortlessly blending jazz, rock, pop and elements drawn from Indian music, Dizrhythmia Too highlights the first-class playing expected from musicians of this calibre and showcases the unique chemistry that happens when they work together.  Ex-Bruford keyboard legend, Dave Stewart also plays piano throughout the album.

The new album will be released on September 2nd but is available for pre-order over at Burning Shed.
