King King Crimson Huge In Wimborne
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Aug 20, 2014

My thanks to Chris Jones for spotting this photo taken by his pal, music journalist Daryl Easlea. "On holiday in deep Dorset! I'd never been to Wimborne before and when the record shop here had ITCOTCK on heavyweight vinyl, I thought it was rude not to purchase. And then prop it up against the record shop in the town's legendary model village."



Also worth checking out is this footage from Pathe News of the model village circa 1960.

Meet The Savage Seven
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Jun 7, 2014
Robert has just updated his Facebook page with the following picture and caption: And this is the band that has just played Schizoid Man as their first rehearsal outing...



Three drummers...



and one of two guitarists...







21st Century Laughing Men
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Jun 7, 2014
Yesterday I spoke to Jakko Jakszyk who reported that the King Crimson rehearsals were going well and there was lots of laughter in the room - as pictured here...



Meanwhile KC roadcrew member and fixer extraordinaire, Trev Wilkins has also been posting pics of the rehearsals on his Facebook page and gives us this insight into the process on the 5th June "Robert commented today that it was the first rehearsal he'd had where everyone present wore glasses, so I have to resign myself to being included for my reading glasses. It's not my eyesight of course but the tiny screens on all of the gear we use!

Another productive and happy day and learned a few more intricacies of Robert's rig. We still have a minor issue with Mel's baritone sax which keeps dropping a pad but none of us had a cigarette lighter to melt the shellac and stick it back on. Tomorrow it will be fixed. It's also the last day before we rejig and move to a bigger space with the frontline (three drummers). This brings a new set of challenges as you can imagine but I'm feeling excited at the prospect. I know the excellent calibre of the drummers, Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin and Pat Mastelotto. Combine this with the backline excellence and it's gonna be great.









Elsewhere, these pics have been posted on Robert's Facebook page (spoiler alert)...

My thanks to Antonion for sending in the following contribution.
Re: Your recent news item about favourite headlines carrying news of KC's return to the frontline - This news item is my personal favourite. Almost fell on the floor laughing at the sight of Uncle Bobby as a...lead vocalist!


King Crimson 2014 Tour On Sale Today
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jun 6, 2014

When music appears which only King Crimson can play then,
sooner or later, King Crimson appears to play the music.

Robert Fripp.

King Crimson returns to active service in the front line on September 9, 2014 with 17 US performances, the first since 2008.

Born on January 13, 1969 in the basement of the Fulham Palace Cafe, London, this is the eighth incarnation of King Crimson, with:

Gavin Harrison (drums), Bill Rieflin (drums), Pat Mastelotto (drums), Tony Levin (bass and vocals), Mel Collins (Sax, flute), Jakko Jakszyk (guitar, vocals), and Robert Fripp (guitar).

In his DGM Diary for September 6, 2013, when King Crimsonís return to live performance was announced to an outbreak of media frenzy, fan adoration and spontaneous outpourings of affection, Fripp wrote:

At 18.55 King Crimson VIII moved to its next stage of actualization
This is a very different reformation to what has gone before: seven players, four English and three American, with three drummers.
The Point Of Crim-Seeing was of a conventional Back Line reconfigured as the Front Line. 
The Seven-Headed Beast of Crim is in Go! mode.

KC Rehearsals - MORE COWBELL!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jun 6, 2014
More shots of King Crimson rehearsals have emerged overnight. First up comes from Gavin Harrison's Facebook page and gives you an idea of the set up as it stands at the moment - there's almost as many drums in that room as at a Terry Bozzio solo gig!



Elsewhere last night at Jakko's studio via Robert's Facebook page there was this photocall...







Also check out Tony's update rehearsal blog page for more pix of the boys at work.

Happy Birthday Tony Levin

King Crimson, dormant mythical entity and prog band itís cool to like, reuniting for US tour
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jun 6, 2014
Of the many web pages carrying news of KC's return to the frontline, that headline from this piece, is probably our favourite so far. Not quite on a par with the LA Reader's Prog-rock pond scum set to bum you out headline marking the emergence of the Double Trio it's true but not bad. 


Three Drummers And More
