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.

Stick Men's Power Play
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Jan 9, 2014
Stick Men - Markus Reuter, Pat Mastelotto and Tony Levin - have a new live album in the pipeline. Recorded on their DEEP tour in the USA in 2013, the blurb says "Beware! This is Stick Men's first official live album! Powerful, intricate, heavy, and atmospheric. Features many pieces from the successful DEEP album as well as the most requested live tracks "Breathless" (a rarely performed composition by Robert Fripp) and Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite". And on top of this there are two stunning virtuoso improvisations that only Stick Men can deliver."

The other one is LTIA Pt.2 with Dream Theater on their Black Clouds & Silver Linings (Limited Edition)."
