Starless - Live In Europe Update
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., May 27, 2014
Following the announcement a couple of weeks ago that a multi-disc box set of gigs from 1973 and 1974 was in the pipeline, there’s been a few responses from folks with audience recordings and eye-witness accounts. There’s also been a few folks wondering just what the devil the blue tapes are. Well, just for the curious, here’s a pic of them...

On This Date 18 Years Ago
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., May 27, 2014
THRaKaTTaK was released upon an unsuspecting public on May 27th 1996.



Not for the faint-hearted, The Wire said it was "As powerful a collision between improv and avant rock as you’re likely to hear, ThraKattaK is King Crimson’s finest hour." Meanwhile over at Q magazine the album was described as "ambient music for giants. Some passages are barely audible, others threaten to separate heads from shoulders..." Rolling Stone offered this verdict: A visceral treat, a document of amazing technical might and telepathic precision. Crimson don't just fuckaround; they fuck you up with sustained invention."

Classic or crud? Let us know your thoughts on the guestbook.

ProjeKct Three Tour Bundle
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., May 26, 2014
Today’s concert download offers all five P3 shows from their 1999 World Tour Of Austin.

Although three shows - 21st, 23rd and 24th - have been available for download for some time, adding the sets from 22nd and 25th, now fills in the gaps for P3 enthusiasts.



Mister Stormy says "We are offering one of the unreleased shows as a freebee if you buy the other unreleased show AND have downloaded the three that were previously available."

Jakko's Mixing It Up
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., May 20, 2014
It's been a busy few weeks for King Crimson's Jakko Jakszyk. Not only did he mix Jethro Tull front man Ian Anderson's latest album, Homo Erraticus, which went into the Top 20 album charts in the UK, his remix of ELP's Brain Salad Surgery album has been released this week in its 6-disc deluxe format. Jakko's work on the album, which includes new stereo and surround sound mixes has been singled out for praise in this review in Prog magazine.







In addition to his remixing work, Jakko has received a commission for a  forthcoming BBC Radio 3 production due to be broadcast in June, documenting the unlikely friendship between Groucho Marx and TS Eliot.  Stay tuned for more details.
