A Whole Lotta Hartford Goin' On June 19, 1996
Written by Mike Stack
Last night was the G3 show in Hartford,
so myself and two of my friends headed over to check out RF, basically. Showed
up around 6pm or so, were checking
out the merchandise when we heard RF starting up. Headed in, checked out the
show. He played from 6-7:20 or so, sat off to my left (we were pretty much dead
centre). Lots of interesting stuff, seemed to be a lot more chordal strumming than
on the albums he's put out. At one point towards the end of RF's set, some
idiot started screaming and yelling and banging the chair in front of him.
Fripp got louder. Idiot got louder. Fripp got louder. Fripp also looked
somewhat annoyed at this point.
A few interesting notes about RF's performance
-most the crowd didn't give a damn, including some guy dressed all snazzily
in his business suit, who didn't shut up the whole night.
-RF occasionally got up, took off his guitar, and walked further to my left
to talk to someone else. Don't know who.
-RF wore a white shirt untucked and black pants, while switching to a black
shirt during the encore (more later...).
-No one smoked anything illegal during Fripp's set, something that couldn't
be said for the rest.

Wow. This may just be the perfect soundscapes - for me at least. The mood is definitely darker, but more importantly deeper, too. It unsettles (Queer Space), disturbs (Threnody and Foreboding), and soothes (Acceptance and Resolution) in a way that none Read more

murky subterranean rumblings define the ground of the beginning of this music, then muted trumpets and strings edge into the cloudy hovering aether as the emotive colour locates squarely on the reddish-hued bronze and the Read more

This is a very moving show, it hovers between impossible and unreachable situations in the future and the deep pain of life. Nevertheless a very grotesque and timeless soundscapeconcert! Thanks DGM.

A very tasty batterie outing, and somewhat sad in that this formation passed away too soon.

Back around 1976 or ’77, as a 15-/16-year-old, I started listening to Crimson. Unfortunately Crimson had broken up a couple years earlier, and the various surviving “progressive rock” bands were stepping all over their dicks in their rush to Read more

Much life has been breathed into this ol’ boot; and a must-have it is, too. A few clams here and there (it was only the sixth (?) gig of this team after Read more

RF bravely demonstrates this to his rhythm section who aren’t having one of their better days; and Mr. Andrews seems to be playing something different somwhere in his head.

I’m embarrassed to say that I just found this performance available on the DMG website. I immediately downloaded it. I was at this show and it was my first (of now many) live experiences with Read more

I thought that this was mainly an Adrian Belew composition. Mr Fripp is a great composer as a music writer, and I love the lightness of Exposure or Crimson pieces. Yes, KC is a band, but Robert is the main Read more
