King Controversial
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Jul 13, 2015
On this date 12 years ago King Crimson played the Montreux jazz festival. It didn't go well for the band.



Adrian Belew reckoned it was his worse gig in nine years and Robert Fripp summed it up as "An evening of clams, clunkers, recoveries..." With Pat Mastelotto diving into the audience at the end to remonstrate with a persistent photograph, this may well be one of the most controversial gigs the Crims ever played! Find out for yourself by downloading the concert here.

The Albums Not For Streaming

Here's a piece on ten albums that do not appear on the new Apple music streaming service. 


On This Date 31 Years Ago...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Jul 11, 2015
The Discipline-era King Crimson played its final gig together at Le Spectrum in Montreal.



The concert, and the preceding night, appeared on the 2CD Absent Lovers, released in 1998.



Here's Robert Fripp's take on that period in the group's history.

"Absent Lovers" (recorded on the group's last two nights in Montreal, 1984) validates the group as a live unit, right up to the end. That particular end was a finish, a conclusion and a completion. No discussion followed the end of the tour, to address either working together or not working together.

We recorded the last shows on multi-track. Sensing that the end of the band might be nigh, this allowed for a possible live-album to commemorate the outfit (as with "USA"). Bill mixed the tapes for a Canadian radio broadcast, which became a bootleg (as with any radio broadcast) called "Absent Lovers". Any mix of any music is a presentation of a world-view: a sonic society of the imagination, how we see that world & our place in it. When I was given a copy of Bill's mix, it confirmed my sense of Bill's Crimson world-view, and gave deep offence. My own Crimson world-view of the same event can be found on the DGM "Absent Lovers" (with acknowledgement to David Singleton, my Ton Prob partner). Bill's is on the bootleg.

The 3 years' commitment discharged, world views divergent, we went different ways. For my part, I went to Claymont Court to allow the future to present itself, without any demand on what that future might be & require of me.

On This Date 41 Years Ago...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Jul 8, 2015
On this date 41 years ago King Crimson entered Olympic Studios in London and began work on the final Crimson album of the 1970s,  Red.



There's some fab footage of Olympic Studios to be found in the Pathe News archive. You'll have to plough through some vintage footage of UK life as seen through the quirky lens of the Pathe producers first though. If you want to cut straight to the chase, you'll find it at 4.47.  There's also an ace article about the background on the studio here and an overview of the facility here.

On This Date 46 Years Ago
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jul 7, 2015
On this date in 1969, King Crimson entered Wessex Studios with Moody Blues producer, Tony Clarke at the controls.



The sessions were eventually abandoned on July 16th after the band decided they would end the relationship with Clarke and produce themselves.
