Bredonborough The Minx arrived back



The Minx arrived back in the early hours from various events in London, rose to a fluster of aggravation of the administrative variety, and was on the street to be collected for Ramblings


09.57    A painting-person is in the house, and more were on the front step. A search for paint pots failed, so we are pressing ahead as best we may.

Into the Cellar: no morning reading. Into computing and e-flurrying mode.

11,40    To a respected e-correspondent, surprised at the news of King Crimson…

i was becoming too happy. time for a pointed stick.

16.29    Practising at lunchtime.

Paul Paints left c. 15.05 and the Minx arrived back two minutes later…


Into the Cellar for e-furying.

17.29    From Dr. Margus Laidre
My wild guess for three drummers, if I may, would be Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison and Bill Rieflin. Other members next to you would be Tony Levin, Jakko Jakszyk and Mel Collins.

Dr. Margus’ wild guess is correct.

The Point Of Crim-Seeing was of a conventional Back Line – Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin, Tony Levin and Pat Matselotto - reconfigured as the Front Line, with Mel Collins, Jakko Jaksykc and myself as Back Line.

18.45    From a respected journalist…

If I could use left-ear for a moment, I'd ask you to give me a couple of lines about how you feel about Crim right now, and a couple more lines about what your hopes are for the new incarnation.

All the Crims have expressed great excitement at the return to Go! mode. Given the considerable commitments of all members, it will take a year before Crimson is able to perform.

Bill Rieflin mentioned to me that he told Jacknife Lee (REM and Robbie Williams’ producer) of the triple drumming, and Jacknife’s reply: Of course. We know what two drummers sound like! I’m hoping we’ll find out, and have a pile of fun doing so.

Then, I'd ask you what you'd say to the average audience member who's been waiting for more.

Please wait another year! We’ll be rehearsing, in full and small group formations over that period.

Evening street I…
