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 ‘legendary’.

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.

King Crimson entered their basement rehearsal space on the Fulham Palace Road and began work on a new tune - The Court Of The Crimson King. 


It Was On This Date In...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 23, 2014
The 23rd March is a significant date in the Crim calendar marking as it does the release of not just one album but two. 23rd March 1973 saw Larks’ Tongues In Aspic unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. As Rolling Stone put it "You can’t dance to it, can’t keep a beat to it, and it doesn’t even make good background music for washing the dishes."

Eleven years later, March 23rd 1984 Three Of A Perfect Pair was the culmination of what had been a very difficult recording process giving birth to the third and final studio album of the 80s incarnation of the band. Record Mirror noted "I haven’t heard such a dreadful din since I tripped up over the cat last week and fell downstairs. I hate King Crimson almost as much as I hate their fellow old bores Pink Floyd."

Your thoughts and views on either of these albums are welcomed on the guestbook.


Crimson-faced Lies
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Mar 22, 2014
We've all heard of bare-faced lies but how about Crimson-faced lies? Although forgery and piracy are commonplace in Russia, the promoters in St Petersburg just flat our lied about the band who were playing there this week.

Jack Knife's I Wish You Would hails from 1979, a one-off project recorded between bouts with UK.  Monkey Business was originally released in 1997 and features a scrapbook of songs and musical sketches penned by Wetton and Palmer-James alongside re-recordings of Crimson tunes Doctor Diamond and Starless. You can find out more here. More up to date arisings for John can be found here where he discusses the new Asia album.

League Of Gentlemen Tour Bundle
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Mar 18, 2014
If you're a fan of The League Of Gentlemen (and you should be) then there's a treat for you in the shape of a 17-date tour bundle for just $72.00 (FLAC) or $55(MP3). The European tour begins on May 2nd in Eindhoven and ends on May 24 in Hamburg. If you've previously purchased any three of the four shows that were already on the site but want to get the bundle then you'll be entitled one free show of your choice.

If you only want one show out of this toe-tappin' bundle then I'd suggest you point your ears in the direction of the band's incendiary gig at Nuremburg.
