My thanks to the mighty Vargan for alerting me to this item from Tony's website. "I have the opportunity to re-release my photo book, Crimson Chronicles in digital format (for iPad). It will feature all the photos, but also a lot of extras, including other shots that didn't make it to the original book. So, that's got me digging through my files for photos, itineraries, tour passes, and music I can use for that release."

On This Date...1969
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Apr 5, 2014
Barry Godber had been busy constructing and painting a couple covers to augment Michael Giles' twin bass drums, and on this date in 1969, took them to the basement of the cafe on Fulham Palace Broadway where Crimson were rehearsing.

This is one of the few colour photographs of the fiery eyes adorning the drumkit and was captured when the remnants of the original King Crimson mimed Cat Food on Top Of The Pops. The occasion also marked the last time Godber's augmentation to the kit were seen in public.

Fripp & Eno On Vinyl
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Apr 3, 2014
After our Fripp & Eno April Fool story earlier in the week, the news that this month sees the reissue of classic Fripp & Eno titles on vinyl for the first time in nearly 30 years, is no joke.  Both No Pussyfooting and Evening Star are issued on 200-gram super-heavyweight vinyl from newly cut artist-approved masters. You can pre-order from Inner Knot (No Pussyfooting / Evening Star) or if youíre in Europe, Burning Shed (No Pussyfooting / Evening Star). You can also take a sneaky peek at one of these handsome chaps played over on the blog


It Was On This Date In 1995
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Apr 3, 2014
Thrak, the eleventh studio album by King Crimson, was released on this date in 1995.



Looking back at the reviews in the press at the time, the reception to the first proper KC album in over ten years was very positive indeed. Mojo observed "While some of Frippís bouts of axe mayhem are not recommended for the aurally sensitive, Thrak is a powerful and inspired comeback." Vox magazine reckoned that the album featured KCís "finest aggregation in ages...itís simply top-notch King Crimson on sparkling form; the title cut itself blows the competition out of the water".

Even the of Crim skeptic Rolling Stone had only good words for the team concluding in its three-star review that "The potential of King Crimsonís renewal is most fully realized with the grinding close of "VROOOM VROOOM" and its coda, in which the band twists the themes of the opening piece into so much bent metal. Itís the artful abandon of these final moments that bode best for the longevity of this egghead-banging outfit."

What are your memories upon hearing the album for the first time? Who remembers ringing the special telephone number that allowed you to hear snippets of the album down the line? How has the album stood up in the intervening years? Let us know on the guestbook.
