iTony eBook?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Feb 16, 2012

My thanks to the mighty Vargan for alerting me to this item from Tony's website. "I have the opportunity to re-release my photo book, Crimson Chronicles in digital format (for iPad). It will feature all the photos, but also a lot of extras, including other shots that didn't make it to the original book. So, that's got me digging through my files for photos, itineraries, tour passes, and music I can use for that release."

Crimso At Glasto!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Jun 29, 2015
My thanks to a pal who sent the following regarding King Crimson and the Glastonbury Festival. "Have your Glasto spies sent you this? - The Unthanks doing Starless. Something of a Crimson sandwich on the main stage on Saturday with them opening and Kanye doing something or other with a bit of Schizoid Man (at around 5.00 mins). Culturally significant!"

Chris Squire
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jun 28, 2015
There’s been an outpouring of tributes paid to Yes bassist, Chris Squire, following the announcement of his death from leukemia today.

Bill Bruford has posted the following message online.

Really saddened to hear of the death of my old Yes band-mate, Chris Squire. I shall remember him fondly; one of the twin rocks upon which Yes was founded and, I believe, the only member to have been present and correct, Rickenbacker at the ready, on every tour. He and I had a working relationship built around our differences. Despite, or perhaps because of, the old chestnut about creative tension, it seemed, strangely, to work.

He had an approach that contrasted sharply with the somewhat monotonic, immobile bass parts of today. His lines were important; counter-melodic structural components that you were as likely to go away humming as the top line melody; little stand-alone works of art in themselves. Whenever I think of him, which is not infrequently, I think of the over-driven fuzz of the sinewy staccato hits in Close to the Edge (6’04” and on) or a couple of minutes later where he sounds like a tuba (8’.00”). While he may have taken a while to arrive at the finished article, it was always worth waiting for. And then he would sing a different part on top.

An individualist in an age when it was possible to establish individuality, Chris fearlessly staked out a whole protectorate of bass playing in which he was lord and master. I suspect he knew not only that he gave millions of people pleasure with his music, but also that he was fortunate to be able to do so. I offer sincere condolences to his family.

Adios, partner. Bill.

Pat's Projects
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jun 28, 2015
The ever-busy Pat Mastelotto has several new projects going live at the moment. First up is his collaboration with guitarist David Kollar and trumpeter, Paulo Raineri, collectively entitled KoMaRa. Their album, Bloom features this handsome character as the cover star, drawn by Tool's Adam Jones.

You can order Bloom here and you can read my take on the album over on the blog.

Elsewhere, Pat also appears on an album entitled  Inflamed Rides  featuring multi-instrumentalist, Lorenzo Esposito (Obake & Berserk), guitar Carmelo Pipitone and Porcupine Tree's Colin Edwin on bass. Pat contributed drums to the entire album last year following King Crimson's tour in the USA.

There are 3 days left on their pre-order campaign. Find out more details here and take a peek at their video here

Happy Birthday Ian McDonald
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Jun 25, 2015
Very best wishes to Ian McDonald who celebrates his 69th year this very day. Though Ian is probably more widely known to the general public for his time as a member of Foreigner, it’s his crucial role and work in establishing King Crimson as a force to be reckoned with in 1969 which Crimheads around the world remember most fondly.

One Bad Apple?
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Jun 24, 2015
Apple's much publicised about-face on paying royalties during the first three months of their new music streaming service looks like it might not be the compromise it was first thought to be. According to Digital Music News, it looks as though the rate they'll pay will be just one-fifth of a penny. Meanwhile, our thanks to Anil Prasad of Innerviews for providing this link to guitarist Aram Bajakia's take on the new service.
