Celestial Fripp Sound
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Jan 23, 2016
Robert Fripp’s contributions to David Bowie’s Heroes were under the spotlight in a documentary aired on part two of BBC4’s Music Moguls:Masters Of Pop series last night. Producer Tony Visconti, sat at the mixing desk, went through individual tracks, detailing how the song was built up. The segment in the main programme can be found at around 25 minutes.



There’s more detail in this special 20 minute extract of the interview with Tony Visconti in which he describes the three guitar tracks laid down by King Crimson’s other guitarist as that "celestial Fripp sound". The section on Fripp starts at around 4.56.

Heroes is also the subject of this review commissioned by Pitchfork since Bowie’s death.

Greg Lake Reissued & Honoured
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jan 19, 2016
Greg Lake has a couple of albums reissued and has received an honourary degree from from the Conservatorio Nicolini in Piacenza, Italy.



Thus sayeth the blurb:

Greg Lake is the co-founder of KING CRIMSON and EMERSON LAKE AND PALMER (ELP), and wrote the hit “LUCKY MAN” and co-wrote “I BELIEVE IN FATHER CHRISTMAS”.
 
This 2-CD set collects together both of Lake’s two solo albums, his first self-titled album (1981) and his second album “Manoeuvres” (1983). The set includes FOUR BONUS TRACKS which have never been included on any re-issue of the albums, only on separate rarities albums.
 
The first album and its three bonus tracks feature all of the members of TOTO with the exception of Bobby Kimball as Lake handles all lead vocals. Both albums also feature appearances GARY MOORE on guitar.
 
Both CDs have received a 2015 REMASTER which has the personal approval of GREG LAKE. The booklet includes extensive liner notes. This is a great and easy way to buy both of Greg Lake’s studio albums and all the rarities connected to these albums in one place.

Carpet & Frock

My thanks to Nuages, who writes "A check to the Twitter-sphere found a delightful post by John Wetton (@arkangel2605) who had been visited by Robert earlier in the day. Mr. Wetton is looking phenomenally good and they both seem rather happy. Was quite pleasant to see."

On This date 47 Years Ago
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Jan 13, 2016
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 Mellotron to the Fulham Palace Road. Once they'd set everything up, McDonald's diary also notes the band had a blow until just after 10.00 p.m.

In the weeks that followed all kinds of visitors making their way to this unassuming location. They included various journalists, record company executives and one or two rock stars, all interested to hear the sounds emanating from the Fulham Palace Road. 



The cafe (now called Ottoman) as it is today

In 2011 Mark Ferraro, from Ozone Park, New York came over to London to make a pilgrimage to lots of buildings tinged with a bit of Crimson history. "I walked in the present day restaurant and went right downstairs without anyone questioning me and took some photos of this tiny space that once contained the sounds of ITCOTCK rehearsals. How the walls were able to take such thunder I can only wonder. Think of those lucky "invited guests" that were able to witness these young musicians and what was coming out of them in this tiny basement."

Here's some of Mark's photographs from that day...








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.
