:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Oct 11, 2013
Cadence And Cascade from In The Wake Of Poseidon has been featured in NBC's TV show, Parenthood last night.



DGM guestbook visitor scharvey exclaims "Hey, did anyone happen to catch the episode of Parenthood on NBC tonight? Cadence and Cascade was used as background music in one scene. Very cool! I heard the guitar intro and then Gordon Haskell started singing. I've never heard KC on a U.S. prime time TV show, and it was very awesome to hear. I'm proud of our boys!"

It Was 44 Years Ago Today...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Oct 10, 2013
"Wessex Studios mid-August 1969. The apocalyptic blast of 21st Century Schizoid Man is abruptly cut off in mid-flow as recording engineer, Robin Thompson, mutes the speakers. Gathered in the cavernous performance area of Wessex Studios below, Robert Fripp, Michael Giles, Ian McDonald, Peter Sinfield and Greg Lake stopped work to welcome the arrival of artist Barry Godber, carrying a large rectangular package wrapped in brown paper.
 
A few weeks previously Sinfield had commissioned his friend to come up with something for the cover for what would be King Crimson’s debut album. “I used to hang around with all these painters and artists from Chelsea Art School” says Sinfield recalling the event 40 years later. “I’d known Barry for a couple of years...he’d been to a few rehearsals, and spent a bit of time with us. I told him to see what he could come up with. I think I probably said to him that the one thing the cover had to do was stand out in record shops.”

Godber tore off the brown paper and laid the painting on the floor as the band gathered around to see his handiwork.


Greg Lake recalls “We all stood around it and it was like something out of Treasure Island where you’re all standing around a box of jewels and treasure...this fucking face screamed up from the floor and what it said to us was Schizoid Man - the very track we’d been working on.  It was as if there was something magic going on.”




Magic and King Crimson never seemed to be far apart during 1969... "*
