Under The Influence Part 942
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Mar 22, 2012

Let's hear it for Cursive. Band member  Tim Kasher says "I thought King Crimson was so weird and now, I think they're phenomenal. I think now we're definitely leaning to at one part of that tradition."

Larks' Tongues Listening Party
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Feb 21, 2013
DGM Live's webmaster-in-chief, Eric, is holding a listening party in honour of LTIA.

Eric writes: "What is your first and/or endearing memory of Larksí Tongues in Aspic? Share it with the world!

Iím hosting a private party on Saturday, March 23 celebrating the 40th anniversary release of Larksí Tongues in Aspic. It will be a grand affair and the exciting part is that most of the guests have never heard this album.

So there is an added sense of danger!

In the run-up to the event Iím inviting folks of a Crimson persuasion to contribute their memories of this remarkable album and period in Crim-history to the
following tumblr blog.

Thanks in advance for sharing!


Eric the Wonder Bee

PS, if you live in Oregon and are interested in attending the event, use the following link to
request an invite. "

If anyone else is hosting a celebratory listening party for LTIA please let us know and we'll give you a shout-out.

Travis & Fripp's Follow Followed Up
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Feb 16, 2013
A couple of new reviews of the the most recent Travis & Fripp album, Follow, have recently been published. Sputnik Musicís write-up reckons "Follow is beautiful. Sad without sounding bleak and uplifting without sounding joyful, the simple-sounding exterior of the album masks the complicated moods underneath. These men have over 70 years of professional experience pouring into this record and with these calming, ephemeral layers of sound serving as the backdrop for their expertise, itís no wonder Follow is one of the best ambient albums Iíve ever heard."

The album is also the subject of consideration here and there's an extensive review over at the Dutch Progressive Rock Pages by Raffaella Berry.

Review of Songbook #1
:: Posted by David S on Fri., Feb 15, 2013

A very detailed description of one writerís journey of discovery with The Vicar Songbook#1 on Altrockchick.com

It is difficult to describe the importance for all those making music that there are the discerning ears necessary to complete the cycle. This one review completely changed atmosphere within the office.

"Songbook #1 has everything to do with talent, everything to do with musicianship and everything to do with artistic integrity."
