Fripp & Eno Live In Paris
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jul 25, 2014

The long-awaited archive live album from Fripp & Eno is now available for pre-order.

Live In Paris 28.05.1975 will be released on September 15th and can be obtained from Inner Knot for US costumers and Burning Shed for UK and Europe.

 

The subject of many poor quality bootlegs, this concert - one of only a handful undertaken by Fripp & Eno - is routinely described as Ďlegendaryí.

Hearing the tapes in fully restored audio quality, it's easy to understand why it attracts such reverence now and perhaps, why the shows attracted such hostility then. No Roxy Music hits, No King Crimson riffs, just a duo sitting in near darkness with a reel to reel tape recorder, improvising over the pre-recorded loops with a filmed background projection. Replace the reel to reel machine with a couple of laptops/iPads/sequencers and the core of much current live performance from electronica to hip-hop was there some thirty years in advance. At the time, audiences responded to such a glimpse of the future with booing, walkouts and general confusion.

Thanks to the discovery and restoration of the original backing tapes, it was possible - with much painstaking restoration work by Alex Mundy at DGM - to isolate, de-noise and match the live elements from the performance tapes to the studio loops to produce the final recording.

* CDs 1 & 2 feature the complete concert with full audio restoration synched with the original studio backing loops as used in the performance.

* CD3 features the backing loops without overdubs.

* CD3 also features the reversed loop for Wind on Water as used on the Evening Star album.

* CD3 also features Later On, edited from No Pussyfooting & originally the b side of Eno's first solo single Seven Deadly Finns.

On This Date...1969
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Apr 5, 2014
Barry Godber had been busy constructing and painting a couple covers to augment Michael Giles' twin bass drums, and on this date in 1969, took them to the basement of the cafe on Fulham Palace Broadway where Crimson were rehearsing.

This is one of the few colour photographs of the fiery eyes adorning the drumkit and was captured when the remnants of the original King Crimson mimed Cat Food on Top Of The Pops. The occasion also marked the last time Godber's augmentation to the kit were seen in public.

After our Fripp & Eno April Fool story earlier in the week, the news that this month sees the reissue of classic Fripp & Eno titles on vinyl for the first time in nearly 30 years, is no joke.  Both No Pussyfooting and Evening Star are issued on 200-gram super-heavyweight vinyl from newly cut artist-approved masters. You can pre-order from Inner Knot (No Pussyfooting / Evening Star) or if youíre in Europe, Burning Shed (No Pussyfooting / Evening Star).

It Was On This Date In 1995
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Apr 3, 2014
Thrak, the eleventh studio album by King Crimson, was released on this date in 1995.



Looking back at the reviews in the press at the time, the reception to the first proper KC album in over ten years was very positive indeed. Mojo observed "While some of Frippís bouts of axe mayhem are not recommended for the aurally sensitive, Thrak is a powerful and inspired comeback." Vox magazine reckoned that the album featured KCís "finest aggregation in ages...itís simply top-notch King Crimson on sparkling form; the title cut itself blows the competition out of the water".

Even the of Crim skeptic Rolling Stone had only good words for the team concluding in its three-star review that "The potential of King Crimsonís renewal is most fully realized with the grinding close of "VROOOM VROOOM" and its coda, in which the band twists the themes of the opening piece into so much bent metal. Itís the artful abandon of these final moments that bode best for the longevity of this egghead-banging outfit."

What are your memories upon hearing the album for the first time? Who remembers ringing the special telephone number that allowed you to hear snippets of the album down the line? How has the album stood up in the intervening years? Let us know on the guestbook.
