28 February 1980

This track is now available for download as part of a bumper collection of Mr Stormy's Monday Selections - his second year of random romps through the murky, cavernous DGM archives, torch in hand, fedora upon his head.

In which the League of Gentlemen try their own brand of slow music and crash slo-mo style into the theme from Peter Gunn on mogodon. Quite what dancers would have made of this smoocher we can only guess at.

What we get here is a scorching slice of anguished guitar that seems to want to tear itself out of the self-imposed lumbering tempo. Fripp’s solo recalls some of that snaking malevolence he conjured up in improvisations such as Providence from King Crimson’s Red. Unsettling and exciting all at the same time.

Interesting also to hear the thrakking slabs of organ and guitar toward the end of the piece.

Slow Thrang
I can hear a (slowed down) bit of "Thrang Thrang Gozinbulx III" around the 2:00 mark, and Barry Andrews' solo at 6:00 is quite funny to me. Not bad at all!

Intriguing, fierce stuff
Regarding the lament about such hot playing by Fripp over a "dull" rhythm section--true, this ain’t Bruford & Wetton, but every combination produces results not available elsewhere. To my ears, the best Crimson-related rhythm sections provide what amounts to competition, whereas this one leaves a wide-open sky through which  Fripp is free to range, and he pours it out more copiously than any Crimson rhythm section would have allowed--which lets us hear something we wouldn’t otherwise. Also to my amateur ears, it sounds as though Fripp is trying mightily to lift the whole proceedings off the ground, and not quite succeeding, but that strain and struggle and disconnectedness makes for a fascinating moment. I enjoy the high peaks of tensest Crimson, but also really like the groundedness and grit of LoG.

Wow!
All of the LoG downloads over the past couple of years have been exciting, but this is something else, and quite unique. Made my hair stand up!

Too bad some of RF’s most inspired soloing was wasted over such a plodding, dull rhythm section.
