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 it’s 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.

The Beatles, The Boss & KC
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Feb 10, 2014
This just in from noted Hellboy, Tom Redmond.

"Yesterday Joanne and I went to an all-day event at Monmouth University focused on the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles’ arrival in the US.  There were a variety of panel discussions and some live performances – overall a very good day supported by exceptional research and professionalism.
 
The final panel was made up of several musicians including the original (1972) drummer in Bruce Springsteen’s East Street Band.  A question to the panel regarding how much the Beatles influenced the original Springsteen line up. The drummer, Vin Lopez, responded, “We only listened to King Crimson”.  Joanne jumped out of her seat and threw an enthusiastic elbow into my side.  I must say that Vin’s comment and the flying elbow took my breath away."

Doing Something With All That Jazz
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Feb 5, 2014
My thanks to Laurence for sending in this clipping regarding Sony's plans for its jazz catalogue and reminding me of the classic Ronnie Scott quip: How do you make a million pounds playing jazz? Start off with two million.
