My Red Book
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Mar 28, 2014
That's the title of the next album by Andrew Keeling and Otherworld which will be available later in the year. You can find more about the release and Robert Fripp's inadvertent role in the album's creation by taking a sneaky peek here


Bill & Yes
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Mar 27, 2014
Bill Bruford played his last gig with Yes in Boston, Massachusetts on March 27th 1972. They were supported that night by a happening beat combo called King Crimson whose gig is available here.  Bill would go onto record Close To The Edge and, of course, quit Yes for KC once it was completed.



More recently Panegyric have announced the forthcoming reissue of The Yes Album with brand new stereo and 5.1 mixes by Steven Wilson. You can find out more about the CD/DVD-A edition here and the CD/Blu-Ray edition here.

The Road To Red At Home 31 & 32
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Mar 27, 2014
It's been a while since we had a few The Road To Red At Home pix, so here's two for the price of one. First up here's Clive's package lounging about in Bedfordshire



And because this is the internet, there has to be a cat. Kos, from an undisclosed location somewhere on the planet (presumably), makes it so.





Crimson ProjeKCt Reviews
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Mar 27, 2014
The Crimson ProjeKCt's recent appearance in London is the subject of two reviews. First up is Minty's track by track assessment and then Jez's ear and eye view over at the Dutch Progressive Rock Pages, where their gig in the Netherlands is also considered. Meanwhile Chris McGarel takes Live In Tokyo for a spin. 


Management Assistant wanted
:: Posted by David S on Wed., Mar 26, 2014

We have just posted an "Assistant wanted" job description on Linkedin - and as we all know that DGMLive is far more "Linked in" than anywhere else, it seems only right to post it here as well.

 

With the benefits of cut and paste - the advert reads  :

 

We are seeking an outstanding candidate interested in music management, with a particular focus on marketing and the exciting, fast-changing world of digital media.   
The successful candidate would join our management team, with a brief to expand the reach of the catalogue and the artists – covering, for example, the areas of social media, Youtube, sync licenses, radio, press, sponsorships and personal appearances.

We invite applications from bright, ambitious candidates who share our passion for the arts and who want to pursue a career supporting them.
Relevant educational qualifications are an advantage but not a requirement.

DGM is a small independent company based near Salisbury, UK.  Ideally, candidates would work in our office for an initial period. Thereafter, working at a distance combined with regular meetings in person could be arranged if needed.

The varied role of the winning candidate will include the following tasks :

1. Helping develop a social media strategy and then overseeing this on a daily basis. The candidate would need to be confident in writing postings for Twitter, Facebook and mailing lists

2. Developing and managing relationships with business partners in such key areas as sync licenses and sponsorships.

3. Helping develop and oversee strategies for radio & press.

4. Arranging and overseeing suitable personal appearances.

 

SKILLS

·                      Strong organizational skills – The ability to co-ordinate and micro-manage a series of diverse initiatives.

·                      Strong communication skills – Phone and face-to-face. Much of the role is about managing relationships.

·                      Good command of the English language :  The ability to create content for social media and e-newletters, as well as communicate clearly and appropriately in written correspondence.

·                      Good technical skills: Confident using all basic Office programmes and online social media applications. Also able to research, learn and adopt appropriate new software.

 

You should be

·                      Self-motivated : We encourage and support initiative, and are always available to offer advice and encouragement. We do not, however, expect to oversee tasks to ensure that they are completed on time to a high standard.

·                      Diligent and organized with a good attention to detail : We need a candidate to whom we can reliably delegate, confident in the knowledge that items will not be forgotten or overlooked.

·                      Highly personable: A confident, personable individual, with a friendly nature who fits in neatly with our team.

·                      Willing to learn: We are not expecting a candidate with knowledge of all areas. We want a bright individual, who displays a willingness to learn and undertake independent research. The right person will grow and use this role as a great step in their career.

 

Should there be any interested souls out there, a CV should be dispatched by email, owl or carrier pigeon to indeg @ dgmhq.com (without the spaces). 

 

 

 

 


The photographer knew their faces well...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Mar 26, 2014
My thanks to the many people who sent gave me the heads-up regarding President Obama's photo-op in front of Rembrandt's The Night Watch.




See here for a bit more context about the photograph.



King Crimson Record Club This Weekend
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Mar 26, 2014
The King Crimson Record Club is featuring Larks' Tongues In Aspic this month.



If you're a Twitter user the date for your diary is Friday 28th March at 7.30pm GMT. You'll need to use the #KCRC hashtag to join in the chat.

Facebook users get their turn on Saturday 29th March at 7.30pm GMT (Facebook of Saturday, anyone?). You'll need to be a member of the Facebook King Crimson Record Club group.

If you've not come across it before, the King Crimson Record Club takes place on Twitter and Facebook and the idea is that Crimheads around the world sit down at a pre-arranged time to play their copy of the album and comment upon it in real time with other Crimheads.

Last month In The Court Of The Crimson King was played and discussed (you can see the Storyfied conversation over on the blog).

My thanks to Chris Pedrone who altered us to the fact that Tool's Danny Carey is performing B'Boom on their current tour. 


On This Date 1985
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Mar 25, 2014
The very first Guitar Craft course took place on this date in 1985 at Claymont Court, West Virginia.



On This Date 1970
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Mar 25, 2014
As unlikely as it sounds on this date 44 years ago King Crimson were on Top Of The Pops performing Cat Food.



You'll note the above item from the Vision archive contains an extremely rare colour photograph of the flaming eyes designed by Barry Godber that were affixed to Michael Giles' bass drums. You can see more of the photographs from the TV session here



The appearance of Tippett on a show like Top Of The Pops was reckoned by The Guardian to be one of the key events in their history of jazz series which you can read here.
