Portrait Of The Guitarist
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Feb 16, 2014
Robert Fripp's aversion to having his photographed in mid-performance is well known. But when he was approached to have a formal portrait taken by photographer Scarlet Page in order to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust he readily agreed. Robert's portrait will form part of an exhibition of other guitarists at the Royal Albert Hall.  Running in selected dates in March and April, you can find out more about the exhibition here.

In The Court Of The Trade Mark King
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Feb 12, 2014
My thanks to konaman for pointing to this link about bands and legal disputes. Always good to know that there's a legal opinion that King Crimson was formed "by virtuoso guitarist and Godfather of prog, Robert Fripp" (objection M'lud!) but that Fripp "has always run King Crimson, not as a democracy, but as a brutal prog dictatorship."

Just Michael Giles
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Feb 12, 2014
This just in from Michael Giles no less! "Due to the current hot debate about tuning on the DGM Live Forum, I write to let you know of my Blogstone which contains essays on various subjects including THE Bflat TENOR KNEE PUMP with toe hold, and the tuning problems associated with its formidible sibling -  THE Fsharp BARITONE KNEE PUMP with  internal plunger, double flange-droppings filter bags and Seven Sevtaves of 14 notes.
 
Readers and writers of DGM Forum might be interested in these rare instruments and their unusual tunings" Michael's unique musical musings can be found here.

The King Crimson Record Club press PLAY at 7.30p.m. GMT prompt.



Crim On The Box
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Feb 11, 2014
King Crimson were mentioned several times on BBC4 last night during Danny Baker's Rockin' Decades. As well as the cover of Court being prominently featured in the background montage of album covers, Viv Albertine of The Slits cited her love of the first KC album to much nodding from the other guests.  LTIA and Red were also mentioned in recaps of particular years of the 70s, although pedantic train-spotters spluttered with apoplexy when Red's release year was cited as 1975.

At the end of the hour-long programme each guest was asked to pick an album that represented something special.  Viv Albertine chose a KoKoMo album (which of course contains Mel Collins) and host, Danny Baker picked up his treasured copy of Still by Peter Sinfield.


The show is available in the UK via the BBC iPlayer for the next seven days.
