Keeling's Eye View Of Crimson
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Sep 8, 2016
Composer Andrew Keeling was at Aylesbury on Monday this week and shared  his impressions of the concert.

The question is this: is it King Crimson who play the music; or, is the music which plays King Crimson? As I listened to The ConstruKction of Light on Monday evening in their concert at the Waterside Theatre I had a momentary and brief glimpse of the music standing outside and apart from the players themselves. I can only describe this as a shimmering, living entity. To verbalise this either sounds like the words of a madman or a mystic. I don't think I'm either, but it's difficult to say. I can say that this is precisely the effect that great music should have on a listener: music should come from the deep unconscious. It isn't enough to be the product of celebrity and perhaps this is why the current zeitgeist is failing to produce much at all except copyists.

King Crimson '80s Box Details
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Sep 7, 2016
Here's the updated details on the forthcoming 19 disc boxed set chronicling the life and times of the 1980s quartet.

On (and off) The Road

King Crimson: studio, live, audio & audio-visual  1981 - 1984

Following a seven year absence King Crimson returned in 1981 with a radically different line-up & sound. This ‘new’ version of the group was as different from the 1970s incarnation as the 1970s line-ups had been from the original 1969 band.

Taut songs were balanced with lengthier instrumentals, driven by complex interwoven guitar lines from Robert Fripp and Adrian Belew, Bill Bruford’s new armoury of electronic percussion & Tony Levin’s fluid bass and Chapman Stick lines.

Three studio albums and tours between 1981/84, built a considerable musical legacy which still resonates. This boxed set extensively covers the line-up’s live and studio work, including much unreleased and upgraded audio and video material.

Programme Sellers Needed
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Sep 5, 2016
For King Crimson’s 2016 shows there will be an “Old School” style tour programme featuring 28 pages of unseen photographs, articles, artifacts, etc.
If you are attending a show on the tour, would you be interested in helping to sell the programme?

You would need to already have a ticket for the show and be able to arrive at the venue about 15 mins before doors are due to open.

We’ll kit you out with a bag of programmes and some change to roam the venue with before and after the show… don’t worry you won’t miss any of the show!

In return for your help a Crimson t-shirt of your choice and a copy of the programme will be yours to say Thank You.

Please send an email to iona@dgmhq.com specifying which night(s) of the tour you are able to help with.
