|5.1 Remaster Playback At Air Studio
|:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Oct 9, 2009
On Tuesday 6th October, Crims of varying vintage gathered in Air Studios to listen to selections from the new surround sound mixes. Following an introduction from Robert Fripp, Steven Wilson gave a short talk about his approach to remixing the KC catalogue.
Alongside journalists from the UK, Japan, Poland, America and New Zealand, Peter Sinfield, Michael Giles, Mel Collins, David Cross, John Wetton and Bill Bruford, and Gavin Harrison heard 21st Century Schizoid Man, Epitaph, The Court of the Crimson King, The Battle of Glass Tears and Starless. By way of a preview for next year’s series of 5.1 mixes, Larks’ Tongues In Aspic Part One shook the walls and rattled the windows.

Andrew Keeling's Single
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Oct 25, 2012
The ever-prolific Andrew Keeling is releasing a single with this alt-rock outfit Otherworld on November 1st. Entitled For The Love Of A Woman, it's taken from the forthcoming album, Hyde. You can check out samples from the single here.
Thus sayeth the blurb:
For the Love of a Woman features Andrew Keeling - guitars and bass; Stephen Fellows (Comsat Angels) - guitars/bass; David Jaggs (The Ragamu ns) - vocals; Dave Cottrell - drums; Charlotte Dowding - strings,
and was written and arranged by Andrew Keeling with words by David Jaggs.
For the Love of a Woman is taken from the collective's second album, Hyde, released in April 2013.
Also included on the single is the title-track from Bells of Heaven released earlier this year which R2 magazine called 'a hugely ambitious and complex work, as intricate in its construction as it is in its assemblage of supporting musicians. It touches on genius.'
Wilson's Court In The Act

My thanks to tboyd for the heads-up that Steven Wilson was at DGM HQ yesterday recording Mellotron parts for his forthcoming follow-up to last year’s Grace For Drowning album.
Writing on his Facebook page Steven observed "“Today I was at Robert [Fripp]‘s place recording the mellotron parts for my new album on his original sixties MK2 mellotron, famously the one used on the debut King Crimson album. Playing a real mellotron is quite an exhausting physical experience, but it sounds amazing….
And this snap from Steven’s Twitter feed

Noisey & Bible Black
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Oct 23, 2012
Artist Jonathan Spencer's video Noise contains a hat-tip of sorts to Tom Phillips via the inner sleeve of King Crimson's Starless And Bible Black. Jonathan says "It's a very short video (2 minutes 15 seconds) about
the nature of noise (both as a real phenomenon and as a metaphor for our
media saturated wired world), it relies heavily on chance and
serendipity. The project uses a number of compression algorithms for
aesthetic effect and skips from stereo to mono." You can take a look at the video (and several others by Spencer) here.

Meet The New Boss...Same As The Old Boss
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Oct 17, 2012
Somebody is making a lot of money out of streaming services but it's not the musicians. Pandora want to make their business profitable at the expense of the very musicians that give their service its content, and thus value. Elsewhere, Chicago-based musician Benn Jordan is discovering how difficult it is when dealing with streaming services, in this case, Spotify.

John Wetton contributes vocals to Steve Hackett’s new album Genesis Revisited II. He’s singing Afterglow and is one of several guests featured on the new double album which you can preview in its entirety here. In something of a Crim-related bonus, Jakko Jakszyk also sings Entangled and Steven Wilson can also be heard singing Can-Utility & The Coastliners.
