Swift Response
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jun 21, 2015
Having spoken out previously about the disadvantages of streaming, Taylor Swift comes out firmly against Apple's demand that musicians receive no royalties for three months.

We don’t ask you for free iPhones. Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.

Her open letter to the one of the most profitable companies on the face of the planet can be read here.


Crimson's Past, Present & Future
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jun 19, 2015
So, when did you last hear Robert Fripp playing a Mellotron* during a King Crimson concert? If you didn't catch Crimson last year in America, then you would have had to been there in 1974 (in the USA) or 1973 (in the UK) to have heard those eerie tones.



You can hear the mighty 'tron in action when King Crimson embark on their UK tour in September - there are second nights with great seats available in Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

Then in November, the team go to Canada. Due to extra demand, a third date in Toronto has been added

Fri 13th Nov Quebec Palais Montcalm
Sat 14th Nov Quebec Palais Montcalm
Mon 16th Nov Montreal Theatre St. Denis
Tue 17th Nov  Montreal Theatre St. Denis
Thu 19th Nov Toronto Queen Elizabeth Theatre
Fri 20th Nov Toronto Queen Elizabeth Theatre
Sat 21st Nov Toronto Queen Elizabeth Theatre
Tue 24th Nov Calgary Jack Singer Concert Hall
Thu 26th Nov Vancouver Vogue Theatre
Fri 27th Nov Vancouver Vogue Theatre
Sun 29th Nov Victoria Royal Theatre



*Of course these days the Mellotrons come via Streetly Electronics' small but perfectly formed app. Triggered by a keyboard you'd be hard put to spot the difference between this state of the art version and the beasts of old. Or would you? Find out by catching Crimson live in the next few months.

Apple Take A Bite Out Of Indies
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Jun 18, 2015
Apple’s new streaming service is expecting labels and musicians to support them for the first three months of its service. The leak of Apple’s contract to independent labels and artists has understandably prompted outrage that the that the multinational media giant will not be paying out royalties for three months.

The Association of Independent Music (AIM) has written condemning Apple’s proposals. AIM chairperson, Alison Wenham said "Apple is expecting players to subsidise their business model for three months by not paying out any royalties." The American trade body AIM2 also expressed its dismay at Apple’s decision

It’s odd that Apple - the world’s richest company - expects to be subsidised by the poorest members of the chain: the musicians.


King Crimson In Rolling Stone Top 50 List
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Jun 18, 2015
King Crimson have three titles in Rolling Stone magazine’s 50 Greatest Prog Albums Of All Time list. In reverse order:

No.20



With his third lineup in four years, King Crimson guitar maestro Robert Fripp finally tapped back into a musical energy as powerful and groundbreaking as that of his 1969 debut In the Court of the Crimson King. The group's fifth album was a masterful mélange of painstaking composition and wild experimentation, as if Fripp were depicting a madman struck with glimmers of melancholy clarity. In the end, it's difficult to tell which passages were happy accidents and which were carefully constructed; and it's even harder to determine which are more impactful, as clattering trays, chiming bells, twittering birds, understated voices and clown-toy laughter intertwine with tinny, static-filled guitar, epileptic beats and violin lines that range from gorgeous to harrowing. J.W.


No.15



Like most of their fellow prog-rockers, King Crimson began as a crew of English pastoral fantasia-slingers, though more schizoid than most. By Red, with the Sixties little more than a bad hangover, guitar guru Robert Fripp had distilled his approach down to a trio playing the most bone-crunchingly heavy music prog had yet heard. The sound of his serrated guitar abstractions slashing through Bill Bruford's beat jungles and John Wetton's low-end theorizing defined the idea of a power trio, and it's not hard to imagine, per legend, that Kurt Cobain dug this record and took notes. Ultimately, the intensity imploded; Fripp broke up the band soon thereafter, following a spiritual path, before reforming it with Bruford years later. But it was never as powerful as this. W.H.


No.2



One of the most influential progressive rock albums of all time, King Crimson's debut eschewed the bluesy bluster of late-Sixties British rock for a Mellotron-drenched mixture of jazz and classical influences, dragging psychedelia to a darker place than it had ever been before. "King Crimson will probably be condemned by some for pompousness," wrote Rolling Stone's John Morthland at the time, "but that criticism isn't really valid. They have combined aspects of many musical forms to create a surreal work of force and originality." With guitarist Robert Fripp and multi-instrumentalist Ian McDonald piling on layers of majestic sound, and bassist Greg Lake intoning evocative and foreboding lyrics, tracks like the unrelenting opener "21st Century Schizoid Man," the haunting "Epitaph" and the stately closer "The Court of the Crimson King" set the tone and template for the coming prog revolution.

KC In Jeopardy
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Jun 18, 2015
My thanks to Nuages whose good taste in music helped him out with the answer to this question...



Nuage writes "For any of you familiar with the American game show Jeopardy, King Crimson and Mr. Fripp were on as one of the "answers". It was also the $2000 dollar "answer"." My thanks to Ronan Chris Murphy who also spotted this picture doing the rounds on Facebook,  commented  "Looks like my old boss was a clue on Jeopardy tonight."

Starless Starlight Winner
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Jun 15, 2015
Congratulations to Roger East in the Isle of Wight. Roger wins a copy of Starless Starlight by David Cross and Robert Fripp for telling me that the name of the live album by the David Cross Band was Live In The Underworld. Thanks to everyone who entered the competition. Stay tuned for another DGM giveaway in the not too distant future.

Meanwhile, there's a brand new half hour documentary featuring David Cross, Tony Lowe, ex-Van Der Graff Generator's David Jackson and Yumi Hara as they prepared for last week's Starless Starlight album launch party. 

Elsewhere, Andrew Keeling gives his thoughts on the album as well as little musical analysis here, and you can read my take on the album over on the blog.
