18 November 1994
Another moment from the Thrak sessions at Real World. Robert and Trey Gunn are intoning the various names and numbers associated with the Marine 475 syndicate at Lloyds Insurance. As Fripp explained in his notes for the Thrak tour programme “Marine 475' (Coda to VROOOM) 1. An example of remorseless and unforgiving inevitability where one is called to honour one's liability without limitation. 2. A Lloyd's insurance syndicate which suffered catastrophic losses for 1989, 1990 and 1991 resulting from Hurricane Hugo, Exxon Valdez and Phillips Petroleum. Several Names involved were from the music industry - even honest, God-fearing family men and good guys that you could trust, who had nothing to hide and who were renowned for their probity and sound business practices.” As Gunn and Fripp “thrak” their way through the names, the latter corpses mid-take and hilarity ensues!
