Here’s Daniel with the THRAK BOX joining his encyclopedic collection. He writes “Apologies. I was photo-bombed by two tour boxes and a teddy-bear at the last second. But I guess it’s OK, they are the ones that convinced me to buy this amazing slab o’ Thrak... (the CD boxes, not the bear!)"

And this from Mark. “This is the look of one happy Canadian receiving his Thrakk Deluxe edition boxset.  I’m seeing them here in Toronto in November. I hope they do a deluxe version of another album....maybe Beat? Or Discipline?

James, from Down Under, is captured down under a whole lotta Crim. “The THRAK box has made it to Melbourne. Unfortunately, in attempting to solve one form of Shelf Lean I fell victim to another...”

Finally, broadcaster Danny Baker was seen on Twitter brandishing his THRAK Box last night.

Keep your THRAKKIES coming, folks!

King Crimson Revised Photo Policy
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Nov 6, 2015
This just in from the team as they begin their preparations for Canada.


Revised Photo Policy

5  November 2015

King Crimson, on its touring in 2014 and 2015, has requested of its audiences that audients refrain from photography, recording and viddying during the performance.

This has mostly been honoured. And when the band stops playing, at the end of the performance proper and following any encores, photography erupts. Except from T Lev, who has refrained from photography throughout.

The Brothers Crim have discussed this and formulated a revised photo policy to request of their audiences and audients:

Please refrain from photography, recording, viddying during the performance, including any encores. But when KC stops playing, then photography is acceptable.


Which means Tony can also snap into action.

We are also encouraging folks to send in their post-encore snaps directly to DGM Live so we can post ’em up here.

Here's yet more THRAKKIES for your delight. First up, DJ Tara sent a snap of this adorably cute beast (and a dog).  "Here is our pup Mojo here in Ontario Canada so excited it arrived today!"

A slightly different beastliness can be discerned in Andrew's snap...

And finally, Colin writes "Only had the chance to hear the 2015 mix and if that’s anything to go by – wow!"

In case you missed it, John Kelman's review of the THRAK BOX contains an interview with Jakko on the new stereo and surround sound mix.

RF's Focus
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Nov 5, 2015
This from Robert via Facebook.

Current road discipline:

rising 07.15.
cold shower.
morning reading.

no alcohol, no dessert.
no socialising.
no business.
no interviews.

ie focus.

question: does this (any particular arising) support the performance?

anything which does not support the performance = No.
anything which distracts / undermines focus = No.

Mister Stormy's Monday Selection (On A Thursday)
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Nov 5, 2015
Mister Stormy dutifully uploaded his Monday selection on, er, Monday. However, a ghost in the machine caused a download glitch. Now digitally exorcised, the selection is up and running and ready for your ears here!

Even More THRAKKIES...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Nov 4, 2015
Have you got your THRAK BOX yet? If so, send in a THRAKKIE. In the meantime, here's some more from out there in Crimheadland.

First up, Robin Rimbaud (aka composer, Scanner) is very pleased with his latest addition to the KC family...

Here's Clive who is definitely a Crimhead proving the old adage - if the cap fits wear it, to be true.

And finally for today, another sideways glance from Georges-Thierry, who says "You know what? I'm happy"
