My thanks to the mighty Vargan for alerting me to this item from Tony's website. "I have the opportunity to re-release my photo book, Crimson Chronicles in digital format (for iPad). It will feature all the photos, but also a lot of extras, including other shots that didn't make it to the original book. So, that's got me digging through my files for photos, itineraries, tour passes, and music I can use for that release."

The Vicar's Power To Believe Speaking Tour
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Apr 13, 2015
DGM's David Singleton will be undertaking a series of speaking engagements in the USA later this month.

David Singleton, the music producer, has worked with some of the best British avant garde artists, including King Crimson, Robert Fripp & Brian Eno, David Sylvian and John Paul Jones. A leading innovator, he has been at the forefront of developments in music DVD, music downloads and high resolution surround sound, as well as the field of artists’ rights, for which DGM Ltd, the label he co-founded with Robert Fripp, is rightly feted.

His latest project, The Vicar, is the convergence of all that experience. It has been described as a “groundbreaking multimedia satire on the music industry”, a heady brew encompassing novels, graphic novels, videos, social media, and, of course, music.

Under the title, “The Power to Believe”, Singleton gives a unique insight into what it takes to change a dream into a reality – a fascinating ten-year journey of promises from the great and the good, false dawns, disillusionment and dogged determination. Almost as much intrigue as the stories themselves. An inspiring story for any of us who aspire to realise our own dreams, in whatever field.

Singleton will be in LA (18/19th Apr), Cambria (20/21), San Francisco (22), San Jose (23), and Seattle from the 28th. Venues and times will be posted shortly.

Crimso On BBC Six Music
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Apr 7, 2015
King Crimson and Islands got a special namecheck and shoutout on BBC6 Music yesterday.  The station’s output had been given over to The Unthanks, whose latest album, Mount the Air, has attracted  widespread critical acclaim.

Adrian McNally, pianist with the group introduced the track:  “This next piece, alongside Sketches Of Spain by Miles Davis and Gil Evans, has had more influence on me as an arranger and producer than any other, and also reveals the source of inspiration of our use of trumpet in The Unthanks. For most of my adult life this piece has been just a distant memory from childhood. I wasn’t even sure who it was by until I looked it up again recently.

All I could remember was the feeling it gave me, and now I realise that my limited armoury of tricks that relate to the impact of scale on the power and intimacy of music were all subconsciously learnt from this one piece. As an adult I can see its flaws but the best prog is full of flaws because the best prog was pushing boundaries, and if you’re pushing boundaries and not getting it wrong half the time, you’re not pushing hard enough. This is Islands by King Crimson...”

The programme then goes on to play the full track with Adrian adding afterwards, “Before we get any King Crimson aficionados regarding my comment about trumpet on that track, that was Mark Charig playing the cornet not the trumpet but did inspire us to use trumpet in The Unthanks which we’ve gone on to do.”  You can listen to the whole show here with the King Crimson section starting at around 01.09.34.

The band have previously covered Starless by King Crimson on their 2011 album, Last. You can read my take on the record over on the blog
