The View From Trev's Office...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Aug 19, 2015
Trev Wilkins, whose been looking after Robert Fripp’s rig and much else besides, has posted this update on the rehearsals.


So yesterday there were a few problems with Robert Fripp’s guitar rig (Sirius Probe) but after much techy searching and tweaking and fiddling it turned out to be the Eventide 8000’s had reset to factory defaults which didn’t work at all for his requirements. It took a while to find the fault but the MIDI settings were all wrong which was the pointer to the problem.

It turned out the Bypass control was set wrong for what we need so it was muting the input when it should have been bypassing it. The units were receiving all MIDI data and going into what I call ’fruit machine’ mode where they roll around loading presets. A bit technical but once re-programmed in the menu system it worked again as it should.

The rig is very complex so fault finding isn’t easy as everything has a ’knock on’ effect on the rest of the system. Anyway, the fix worked and today it has run without problems.

This meant I could finish a bit earlier tonight and have dinner with the American ’rhythm’ contingent. Always a good night out with a very nice (and talented) bunch of guys. Add to this the fact that we’ve found a really nice little family run Italian restaurant and a cheap cab firm and we’re in a good place for the ongoing rehearsals.

The band seemed to be finding their feet musically today, so all is good at this point in time. New and very listenable material is sitting alongside some seriously classic Crimson tracks so this will definitely be a great tour for all of the fans. I expect that if there was a fan set list, this would be it!

Seems a long way off at the moment but looking forward to hitting the road now.

Onwards!

King Crimson UK Tour
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Aug 14, 2015
With just a couple of weeks to go before King Crimson start their first UK tour since 1982, tickets are beginning to sell out, as can be seen from this advert...



The band will be playing more classic repertoire, some of it for the first time in the UK, from In The Court Of The Crimson King, In The Wake Of Poseidon, Islands, Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, Starless And Bible Black and Red. Other periods of Crimson will also be featured in what promises to be a dream setlist for Crimheads. Additionally, and perhaps more significantly, they will also be unveiling brand new material arising from their run of rehearsals in 2015.  Not for nothing is the tour entitled: The Elements Past, Present And Future.



Given the rarity of King Crimson touring around the UK it’s probably best to grab a ticket for remaining dates in Aylesbury, and the extra dates added in Salford, Birmingham and Edinburgh.

31st Aug Friars Aylesbury
01st Sep Friars Aylesbury
03rd Sep Cardiff, St.David’s Hall
05th Sep Brighton Dome [SOLD OUT]
07th Sep Hackney Empire, London [SOLD OUT]
08th Sep Hackney Empire, London
11th Sep Lowry, Salford [SOLD OUT]
12th Sep Lowry, Salford
14th Sep Symphony Hall, Birmingham [SOLD OUT]
15th Sep Symphony Hall, Birmingham
17th Sep Usher Hall, Edinburgh [SOLD OUT]
18th Sep Usher Hall, Edinburgh
