The Return of King Crimson
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Nov 19, 2007

Ending weeks of speculation in various online communities, Robert Fripp has revealed in his latest online diary that drummer Gavin Harrison (of Porcupine Tree) will be joining King Crimson.

The band will be playing a series of live dates in Chicago’s Park West – most recently the venue to RF and the LoCG appearance in the windy city.  Fripp notes “Park West is a fave venue, and one I have been working for 27 years. The LCG were here in 1989 & 1990…This is also the venue where, according to our current plans for King Crimson’s return to active-service in 2008, preparatory to the 40th. Anniversary Celebration of 2009, The Beast Of Crim will be playing a 4-night residency in August 2008 with KC’s third double-drumming formation.

The first formation: Jamie Muir & Bill Bruford (1972-73);
the second formation: Pat Mastelotto & Bill Bruford (1994-97);
the third formation: Pat Mastelotto & Gavin Harrison.

A fourth double-drumming formation, of 1981-84 (Adrian & Billy B), doesn’t quite count as Adrian’s primary focus was in the front line.”

Harrison is one of the most respected drummers of his generation, adding a prodigious technique to the work of Porcupine Tree as well collaborating with Jakko Jakszyk on The Bruised Romantic Glee Club, and most recently, Drop – an album with bassist and singer, 05Ric and also featuring contributions from Fripp. Some may recall Drop was featured as a DGMLive giveaway (see my review on the blog), perhaps hinting at Harrison's proposed involvement. Only DGMLive  regular, Chocolatefireguard, spotted the listing on King Crimson's myspace site: the top four musicians have been there for a couple of months now.

More details will be announced regarding  rehearsal schedules and ticket availability as soon as we get them.

#KC2014 - Crimson, Gremlins & Goats!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Aug 27, 2014
Here’s some more photographs from the King Crimson rehearsals taking place at Applehead Studios.



Not everything is going to plan as Trev explains "Fending off the gremlins. Complicated electronic problems with the Sirius Probe and equipment failure has made the first few days tough. We’re now flying some of the UK gear out and have ordered some replacement units. The Eventide guys are also on the case with us so on we go."

King King Crimson Huge In Wimborne
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Aug 20, 2014
My thanks to Chris Jones for spotting this photo taken by his pal, music journalist Daryl Easlea. "On holiday in deep Dorset! I'd never been to Wimborne before and when the record shop here had ITCOTCK on heavyweight vinyl, I thought it was rude not to purchase. And then prop it up against the record shop in the town's legendary model village."



Also worth checking out is this footage from Pathe News of the model village circa 1960.
