Best Wishes For John Wetton
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., May 26, 2015

John Wetton is recovering after undergoing surgery a statement on Johnís website has announced:
On May 16, John underwent surgery for the successful removal of a 1 kilo [2.2lb] malignant mass. John wishes to extend his thanks to Mr Chan and his team. John is also beyond grateful for the wonderful wishes and prayers received. John is recuperating. Messages can be sent via the management office to jw@qedg.co.uk

Iím sure all visitors to this site wish John a speedy recovery.

John is also the featured interviewee on Charles Hazlewoodís exploration of progressive rock on BBC Radio 2 this week.

Johnís work with King Crimson, UK and Asia are detailed and he talks about the influence of church music on his musical development , the arrival of technicolor in music (hearing The Beach Boysí God Only Knows on the radio for the first time), the pros and cons of ubiquity, and the importance of being an aerial when it comes to writing music.

The show is available on the BBCís iPlayer for another 29 days.
Bill Brufordís contribution to the show is still available and an interview with  Genesisí Tony Banks can be found here.

On This Date...1969
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Mar 24, 2014
King Crimson entered their basement rehearsal space on the Fulham Palace Road and began work on a new tune - The Court Of The Crimson King. 


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 Larksí Tongues In Aspic unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. As Rolling Stone put it "You canít dance to it, canít keep a beat to it, and it doesnít 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 havenít 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.


Crimson-faced Lies
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Mar 22, 2014
We've all heard of bare-faced lies but how about Crimson-faced lies? Although forgery and piracy are commonplace in Russia, the promoters in St Petersburg just flat our lied about the band who were playing there this week.

League Of Gentlemen Tour Bundle
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Mar 18, 2014
If you're a fan of The League Of Gentlemen (and you should be) then there's a treat for you in the shape of a 17-date tour bundle for just $72.00 (FLAC) or $55(MP3). The European tour begins on May 2nd in Eindhoven and ends on May 24 in Hamburg. If you've previously purchased any three of the four shows that were already on the site but want to get the bundle then you'll be entitled one free show of your choice.

If you only want one show out of this toe-tappin' bundle then I'd suggest you point your ears in the direction of the band's incendiary gig at Nuremburg.


Band Of Brothers
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Mar 18, 2014
When he's not out on the road Tony Levin is working on an album with his keyboard playing brother Pete. The jazz-orientated project is known as The Levin Brothers and you can read a bit about it on Pete's website. Meanwhile, Tony has been sent a TV clip of his younger self playing as a member of The Jazz Brothers circa 1966. Check it out on Tony's March 13th update. My thanks to davidly for that last heads-up
