Crim On Coe
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Feb 28, 2012

My thanks to Andrew John for alerting me to some impending Crimson on the radio. Andrew writes "itís been a long time since I was able to point out to my mother that King Crimson are refered to in the BBC Radio Times. Get yourselves tuned to Gideon Coe this Thursday and wallow in the recognition only occasionally the popular media affords íourí band. What is chosen to be played will be interesting in itself." The session in question is likely to be the old BBC In Concert session taken from the Concertgebouw Night Watch concert. We wait with baited breath until Thursday!

King Crimson On Great Album Showdown
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Feb 6, 2013
King Crimson's debut was one of three albums given pride of place during BBC4 Danny Baker's Great Album Showdown programme last night. After picking We're Only In It For The Money by The Mothers Of Invention and Joni Mitchell's The Hissing Of Summer Lawns, Baker proudly held aloft his worn copy of ITCOTCK (signed by Greg Lake) and declared "Some groups arrive fully formed and have you, well me certainly saying 'I don't know they've done that'...This extraordinary piece of music which has had to weather its critics over the years, 21st Century Schizoid Man, which is as angular a listen as you're like to hear, to the wonderful Court of the Crimson King itself, an observation by King Crimson." UK viewers can tune into the whole 60 minute show by going to the BBC iPlayer. The short segment on Crimso starts at a gnat's whisker after the 48 minute mark.

KC & Koch
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Feb 2, 2013
Following on from the news that Ed Koch, former Mayor of New York City had died, Emory, frequent visitor to the site posted this on the guestbook.

"Last night Ed Koch, former Mayor of NYC, passed on.
During the Beat tour I saw and heard with my own eyes and ears Ed Koch introduce Crimson at the Pier at 42nd Street say: "Rockiní out with King Crimson!" Though Fripp has confirmed that this was not merely a product of my feverish young brain, I have always wondered whether Ed Koch actually stuck around for a while to hear the Crimson creature play."

Hugh The Fierce has supplied photographic evidence of Koch's close proximity to the Crims.

My thanks to homeoffice for sending in this. "Just ran across this older bit today on the interwebs...good old Nina, if only the kind folks of DGM could go back in time to get Ms. Simone to handle the backpay issue, she seems sure of how to handle it here...good stuff"

Bernier's Looking Over The Edge Of Death
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Jan 29, 2013
Ex-Stick Men member Michael Bernier has posted up a rough mix of a work in progress called Looking Over The Edge Of Death. Michael writes "I thought I should share this new track's process. Iíve been dealing with the gauntlet of medical analysis and speculation over my mysterious brain growth anomaly and the seizures while trying to complete my newest CD.

This track music was inspired by the terror experienced within a grand Mal seizure yet translated through my subjective suspicion as to how KC would approach it. Sort of a tribute to KC while also a sonic insight to my experience under the veil of flatlining. Iím still tweaking it but I always like feedback and sharing the steps along the way. OK back to tracking...cheers!"

You can listen to the track here.

You can also listen and buy Michael's last album, Leviathan here.
