On This Date 41 Years Ago
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Aug 4, 2014
Swastika Girls from No Pussyfooting was recorded at Command Studios in London.


From Robert's diary in September 2007 when he was remastering the album with Simon Heyworth.

"The original recording of (Side Two) Swastika Girls, took place at Command Studios in Piccadilly. Brian set up the looping in the control booth and, after 5 minutes of listening to the loops playing-in to the multi-track, I walked into the studio, strapped on & wailed out.

Command being what is was, we took the tapes to Air Studios (George Martinís studio at Oxford Circus) & continued mixing & assembling No Pussyfooting there. On the way to one of the sessions, Brian looked down & saw a torn-out page of a magazine, which he brought into the studio for examination. It featured young women in (incomplete forms of) Nazi uniform, sporting swastikas & the headline Swastika Girls.

At this time, F&Eís work together was not very much supported by the business representatives nominally forwarding our interests (that is, our work was actively opposed). No Pussyfooting was also disliked by former Crimson buddies when I played it to them. So, on a piece of paper, written in large letters & placed on the mixing console - No Pussyfooting Ė that we should not compromise what we felt to be right." 

Fripp & Eno's No Pussyfooting is available in vinyl format. The albumís return to the 12" format is cut from masters approved by the artists, manufactured on 200g super-heavyweight vinyl and presented in a re-worked version of the original gatefold sleeve, using variant photos from the original photo shoot by Willie Christie. Also available on vinyl is the second Fripp & Eno release, Evening Star.

Crimson's All Time Greats?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Aug 2, 2014
The latest edition of Prog Magazine runs a feature entitled The 100 Greatest Prog Albums of All Time.



As the title cunningly implies, the readers of the magazine have voted on what they reckon to be the 100 greatest albums. Happily,  King Crimson scores rather well with  Lizard at 96, Discipline achieving 70, LTIA in at 30, Red roaring up to No.12 and ITCOTCK polling at No.2. A big thanks to all the readers of the magazine for their support.

Also in the feature various musicians provide short pieces on their favourite albums including King Crimson's Jakko Jakszyk who had this to say about Henry Cow's Legend.



Caps thrown aloft in the air to Strawbs' front man, Dave Cousins who chose LTIA as his No.1 prog album.





Don't Get Caught Up On Court
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Aug 1, 2014
There's an interview with Robert Fripp in the latest edition of Uncut magazine. In it Robert offers this advice to prospective concert-goers "A guiding King Crimson principle is the music is new whenever it was written. So it's all new music. What I will say is, if you are coming with the explicit or implicit demand that you need to hear this music or that then don't come. And if you've already bought tickets, sell them to someone and you might make a profit. The point is with Crimson, if you come with an open mind, generally something worthwhile happens. If you don't, it's less likely. If you go there thinking, 'If I don't hear In the Court of the Crimson King I will have a lousy show', then you will have a lousy show. It's not on the setlist."
