|Classic Crimson Promised On Tour
|:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Aug 3, 2015
With less than a month to go before King Crimson start their first UK tour since 1982, tickets are beginning to sell out, as can be seen from this advert...
The band will be playing more classic repertoire, some of it for the first time in the UK, from In The Court Of The Crimson King, In The Wake Of Poseidon, Islands, Larksí Tongues In Aspic, Starless And Bible Black and Red. Other periods of Crimson will also be featured in what promises to be a dream setlist for Crimheads. Additionally, and perhaps more significantly, they will also be unveiling brand new material arising from their run of rehearsals in 2015. Not for nothing is the tour entitled: The Elements Past, Present And Future.
Given the rarity of King Crimson touring around the UK itís probably best to grab a ticket for remaining dates in Aylesbury, and the extra dates added in Salford, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

David Cross: Starless Starlight
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Mar 19, 2015
David Cross has a new album out in May entitled Starless Starlight. The album is based upon the short melody composed by David Cross and Robert Fripp that emerged as one of the key themes of King Crimsonís Starless from the final í70s studio album, Red.
The tune resurfaced in two improvisations performed and recorded by Fripp at Blueberry Hill, St Louis in 2006. These recordings and the theme itself were then transformed by David Cross (and co-producer Tony Lowe) into the album Starless Starlight.
Thereís an album launch event taking place on May 26th at The Bedford, 77 Bedford Hill, Balham, London, £10 advance / £12 on the door which opens at 7.30 p.m.
Cross will be joined by Yumi Hara (The Artaud Beats), David Jackson (ex-Van der Graaf Generator) and Tony Lowe (Producer Guitarist) who will be performing new versions of music from this album and, in keeping with the spirit of this venture, will individually and collectively devise, compose and otherwise create original new interpretations of the Starless theme.
Starless Starlight is available for preorder here.

Bill & Crimson!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 15, 2015
My thanks to Leonardo Pavkovic for sending these photographs of the pre-concert talk tonight with Bill Bruford at the University of Surrey.
Bill was in conversation ahead of this evening's concert by the Delta Sax Quartet who were performing ex-Earthworks
pianist Gwilym Simcock's latest composition, Crimson! which re-imagines
some of the Crimson canon scored exclusively for saxophone. The London premier of the composition takes place on May 1st at St.John's Smith Square.
Wake Up Call

There's a new novel on the way from celebrated sci-fi author Alastair Reynolds next month.
The blurb says "two extraordinary characters...begin to unravel some of the greatest mysteries of our universe." Well, thatís one description of what Fripp and Sinfield were up to on the second King Crimson album, I suppose.
