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.

It Was On This Date In...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 23, 2014
The 23rd March is a significant date in the Crim calendar marking as it does the release of not just one album but two. 23rd March 1973 saw Larks’ Tongues In Aspic unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. As Rolling Stone put it "You can’t dance to it, can’t keep a beat to it, and it doesn’t even make good background music for washing the dishes."

Eleven years later, March 23rd 1984 Three Of A Perfect Pair was the culmination of what had been a very difficult recording process giving birth to the third and final studio album of the 80s incarnation of the band. Record Mirror noted "I haven’t heard such a dreadful din since I tripped up over the cat last week and fell downstairs. I hate King Crimson almost as much as I hate their fellow old bores Pink Floyd."

Your thoughts and views on either of these albums are welcomed on the guestbook.
