Well Fancy That...Part 823
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Feb 22, 2012

My thanks to Festus who came upon this story in the NME about the difficulties artists have making money from YouTube. Festus writes  "Interesting that the band have figured out that they aren't being paid by their old label (EMI !!!!!) for their videos being streamed. I'm glad I play bass with friends as a hobby, it would brreak my heart to get involved in such a bad business."

King Crimson 2014 Tour On Sale Today
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jun 6, 2014

When music appears which only King Crimson can play then,
sooner or later, King Crimson appears to play the music.

Robert Fripp.

King Crimson returns to active service in the front line on September 9, 2014 with 17 US performances, the first since 2008.

Born on January 13, 1969 in the basement of the Fulham Palace Cafe, London, this is the eighth incarnation of King Crimson, with:

Gavin Harrison (drums), Bill Rieflin (drums), Pat Mastelotto (drums), Tony Levin (bass and vocals), Mel Collins (Sax, flute), Jakko Jakszyk (guitar, vocals), and Robert Fripp (guitar).

In his DGM Diary for September 6, 2013, when King Crimsonís return to live performance was announced to an outbreak of media frenzy, fan adoration and spontaneous outpourings of affection, Fripp wrote:

At 18.55 King Crimson VIII moved to its next stage of actualization
This is a very different reformation to what has gone before: seven players, four English and three American, with three drummers.
The Point Of Crim-Seeing was of a conventional Back Line reconfigured as the Front Line. 
The Seven-Headed Beast of Crim is in Go! mode.

KC Rehearsals - MORE COWBELL!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jun 6, 2014
More shots of King Crimson rehearsals have emerged overnight. First up comes from Gavin Harrison's Facebook page and gives you an idea of the set up as it stands at the moment - there's almost as many drums in that room as at a Terry Bozzio solo gig!



Elsewhere last night at Jakko's studio via Robert's Facebook page there was this photocall...







Also check out Tony's update rehearsal blog page for more pix of the boys at work.

Happy Birthday Tony Levin
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jun 6, 2014
Hats aloft in the air and party poppers abound as Tony Levin celebrates his birthday today as well as Crimsonising in the UK.



If you'd like to share any of your favourite TLev moments please pop them on the guestbook.  

King Crimson, dormant mythical entity and prog band itís cool to like, reuniting for US tour
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Jun 6, 2014
Of the many web pages carrying news of KC's return to the frontline, that headline from this piece, is probably our favourite so far. Not quite on a par with the LA Reader's Prog-rock pond scum set to bum you out headline marking the emergence of the Double Trio it's true but not bad. 


Three Drummers And More
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Jun 4, 2014
As Pat Mastelotto says on his Facebook page, what three drummers look like...



Meanwhile over on Robert's Facebook page...



The Elements
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Jun 4, 2014
News of King Crimsonís return to the front line has been the cause of much excitement as has the appearance of this logo, designed by Ben Singleton, which accompanies the tour...





King Crimson's Back Line At Work

Robert Fripp posted this photograph on his Facebook page of Jakko, Tony and Mel rehearsing today...



His caption: King Crimson: the Back Line at work on Starless...

Over on his website Tony Levin has posted some photographs of the Crimson team hard at work.

King Crimson In "Lotsa Fun" Shock Horror
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Jun 2, 2014
On the day that the new line-up of King Crimson held its first day of full band rehearsals, this just in from Robert Fripp: "First day of King Crimson rehearsals, with Front Line of three drummers and Back Line of three players (Mel Collins arriving back today from touring in Italy, joining us tomorrow) reporting good days. Personally, i had lotsa fun.
Two Crim Principles articulated:
1.Enjoying our playing together is encouraged.
2.If you don't wish to play a part, give it to someone else - there's enough of them!
Tour itinerary will be announced tomorrow on DGM.
