Here Comes The Gunn
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jan 18, 2015
Trey Gunn is a busy, busy man. This week in Seattle  he takes part in what's described an electro-acoustic semi-improvised opera entitled The Ballad of Ishtar (more details about the cast here).

At the end of the month he's in the UK and Europe as part of the Security project, performing the music of Peter Gabriel alongside Jerry Marotta with whom Trey first worked with on the Sylvian Fripp release, The First Day back in 1993.

Trey is also releasing a new album. Entitled The Waters, They Are Rising it includes a series of improvisations based around Peter Gabriel's Here Comes The Flood.





You can listen to one of the improvs and a haunting version of Bob Dylan's Not Yet Dark here.

Live At The Orpheum At Home 2
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Jan 17, 2015
As Live At The Orpheum begins to arrive in people's houses, so too do the photos. First up today, looking decidedly cheery with his purchase, is Theo Horneman from Friesland, in the Netherlands.



Also spotted via Twitter comes this picture from the artist Martin Hoogeboom, spookily also from the Netherlands! Martin writes "Man in painting turns around saying 'I hate King Crimson!'. Me? On the contrary..."

Grooning?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Jan 17, 2015
My thanks to Eric for this intriguing item. "I regularly follow a satirical webzine called Des Mean in Iowa, where I live. Today the following post appeared in their Twitter feed . . .

Get to Know an Iowan #1: Konrad Yüngermann


I followed it to an interview with their curator, who is apparently from a Swedish town called Gröön . . . among other details of a Crimson hue. Hmmmm . . . . "

On This Date 46 Years Ago
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jan 13, 2015
This date in 1969 marks the official beginning of King Crimson with the start of rehearsals in the cramped basement of the Fulham Palace Cafe. Situated at 193 Fulham Palace Road, W6, the cafe was owned by George and Peter Calatychos who let out their basement as a rehearsal space. It had been found by Peter Sinfield, then the band's roadie and lighting person.

According to Ian McDonald's diary at around 7.30pm, Dik, Pete, Bob and Greg called round to his flat to come and shift the 'tron to the new rehearsal rooms on the Fulham Palace Road. Once they'd set everything up, McDonald's diary also reveals the band had a blow until just after 10.00 p.m.

It would be King Crimson's base of operations for the next two and a half years.




Here's how the cafe was looking in 2011 when I visited the location to take part in a Japanese TV documentary...











It's astonishing to think that a four piece band and all their gear used to fit into such a confined space. The same space was used by bands after King Crimson vacated the cafe in 1972 for several years.
