KC Unplugged
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Apr 1, 2015
The support act for the forthcoming King Crimson tour will be King Crimson - unplugged! 

In addition to Crimso playing a 20 minute set of KC-related material on acoustic instruments at each of the dates already announced, the group are also also to make low-key acoustic only appearance at this year's Green Man Festival, as a warm-up for the KC tour proper later that month.

This perhaps surprising announcement comes after an equipment failure at last week’s full rehearsals. While the electrics were being fixed, Fripp and Jakszyk reverted to acoustic instruments in order to carry on their work. “We turned a disadvantage into an advantage” comments Fripp in his April 1st dairy published later today.

There’s no indication yet as to which numbers will be covered but the phrase “KC-related” opens up the possibility of Guitar Craft repertoire as well as solo material from Jakszyk and Rieflin also under consideration.

On This Date 41 Years Ago...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 29, 2015
Starless And Bible Black was released on this date 41 years ago.

The album received mixed reviews at the time. The Melody Maker, under the headline Crimso: Black is beautiful, declared “...the history of Crimson would appear to consist of a series of internal struggles, polarised between Fripp and various caucuses in the band and centering on Fripp’s assertion of the rightness of his own path, but little of of it resulting in real creative tension. Probably as consequence of greater personal stability, however, and possibly because of a more harmonious chemical balance within this particular set of musicians, this album strikes me as an extremely happy medium between emotion and technique; it’s neither as overweeningly grandiose and manic as the first two albums, nor as precious as Islands. In short, as Micawber would say, Mr. Fripp seems to have got his shit together.”

Record Mirror observed “They are an incredibly highly strung group, fierce when driving together and daring on solo flights. Side two’s title track and Fracture may be more than you can bear to listen to on first hearing; try it again and again and rock’s cobwebs start to dissolve.”

Sounds reckoned “King Crimson have made a record that equals in intensity and innovative musicianship the strength that can achieve on stage. LTIA palled very quickly as an album, especially when you’d seen them play a good gig, but this one - I suspect - will maintain its ability to hold you through a sequence of twists and turns much longer than its predecessor.”

And finally, NYC’s TV News had this advice for listeners: “As long as you take the next few weeks to become accustomed to Starless you’ll probably develop an intense passion for it. Suggestion: don’t listen to it if you’re depressed or contemplating life after death.”

Sign Of The Times
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Mar 25, 2015
We’ve seen this sign before here on the news page but here it is again - spotted in the vicinity of Tate Modern, and still managing to screw up the actual quote.

Music is the cup which holds the wine of silence
Sound is that cup, but empty
Noise is that cup, but broken

Robert Fripp,
