setting drum levels can equal music! February 21, 2011
Written by syncopatico
Ah, the glory days of late-1960’s/early-1970’s English prog-rock drumming (and drumming in general)! Back from a time when young adventurous drummers were influenced by jazz and possessed some swing and finesse to their playing. Unlike more recent years when young drummers are more influenced by sheer technique (hand/foot speed to the detriment of an overall musicality) and rigid time-keeping (the results of the prevalence of the click-track, unwavering 4/4 dance music and Pro Tools uniformity). Here you can hear Michael Giles’ excellent drumming skills (impressive double bass drum work!?) but at the same time his deft ride cymbal sticking and crisp snare accenting maintains a flowing feel--something which so many of today’s heavy-handed, pounding drummers noticeably lack!

I never get tired of Fripps solo output in 1978 - 80.
This is groundbreaking Read more

I love this live Frippertronics recording, thank you for making it available.
I have a very pedantic observation to contribute - that it is most likely WCMF, not WMCF, if I have my Upstate progressive rock radio stations of the Read more

Once again, DGMLive has struck gold with the unearthing of some excellent vintage Frippertronics loops from Mr. Robert Fripp - this time from the WMCF Studios in Rochester NY. There are many similarities between this and the official Frippertronics Read more

Excellent!!! It’s a kind of excitiment that refers back to the Fripp & Eno days but which you will not find in in the soundscapes of Fripp’s later days. I can see the development of soundcapes but I do prefer Read more

Now definitely my favorite LoCG recording. It really boogies along, stunning.
Stangely the download gave me two copies of the ’Eye of the Needle’ track which I didn’t notice until after I’d burned the tracks to Read more

This is very interesting musically on its own, and likewise interesting historically in the context of Fripp solo work/performances. The guitar sound is not like Frippertronics or pre 75 Crimson. Sometimes it is like it is in League of Read more

I’ve always wondered why Earthbound was ever released . . . maybe Fripp was in a mood to commit rock ’n’ roll suicide? I agree that Mel Collins’ contributions are the highlight of this concert, but they only manage Read more

Among the more interesting parts of this recording are the shock treatments delivered with increasing intensity as firt Burrell, and then Fripp attempt an accomodation with the PA system. The last one leaves one hanging for a Read more
