KC Unplugged
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Apr 1, 2015

The support act for the forthcoming King Crimson tour will be King Crimson - unplugged! 

In addition to Crimso playing a 20 minute set of KC-related material on acoustic instruments at each of the dates already announced, the group are also also to make low-key acoustic only appearance at this year's Green Man Festival, as a warm-up for the KC tour proper later that month.

This perhaps surprising announcement comes after an equipment failure at last week’s full rehearsals. While the electrics were being fixed, Fripp and Jakszyk reverted to acoustic instruments in order to carry on their work. “We turned a disadvantage into an advantage” comments Fripp in his April 1st dairy published later today.

There’s no indication yet as to which numbers will be covered but the phrase “KC-related” opens up the possibility of Guitar Craft repertoire as well as solo material from Jakszyk and Rieflin also under consideration.

Cat Food Again!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Jan 8, 2015
Over the last 24 hours there’s been an understandable flurry of excitement online and across social media at King Crimson’s 1970 Top of the Pops appearance turning up on Youtube featuring Keith Tippett, Michael and Peter Giles, Robert Fripp and Greg Lake playing Cat Food. Up until then the only known documentation of the band's appearance to lip sync their single on the show were Harry Hammond's photographs.

DGM were alerted about the existence of the video at the start of the week just before it went online and immediately entered into discussions to have the footage returned to the KC archive.

The original footage had indeed been wiped by the BBC. However, foreign TV stations who bought the show were able to record their own continuity and insert them into BBC footage for transmission in their countries. In this instance the host is Joe Berger for the German show Hits A Go Go.

The lost footage was the source of a spoof news report on this site back in 2006 for April Fools Day. The DGMLive prankster team were considering another pass at the story later this year but will now have to come up with another wheeze!

Starless In Situ 8
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Jan 5, 2015
My thanks to Todd Alcott for sending in today's Starless In Situ. Todd writes "I bought the LTIA and Red boxes at the show in Los Angeles - I got a discount on the LTIA because it was badly bumped at some point in the tour - and just received Starless in the mail. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that these collections are the greatest achievements possible in the history of the universe. My only complaint is the brevity: 27 discs? Surely you folks can do better than that."
