Gunn's new course
The Financial Times went to take a look at King Crimson’s first night at the Hackney Empire and were impressed by what they saw and heard. Read all about it here.
Mike Dickson who was one of the forces behind the first King Crimson message board in the early days of the internet, Elephant Talk, is giving away an album of classical music performed on his vintage mellotrons.
My thanks to Sean Hewitt for spotting this mistake about King Crimson's stick player celebrating his 70th birthday. Of course, TLev has a little way to go before blowing out that many candles.
Please note that any sites popping up around the internet, particularly on Youtube, claiming to give access to pro-shoot video and audio streaming of King Crimson on tour are fake.
Today is the launch of Tuner's open access drumming project, 11-11 over at Krimson News. Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter will be making a new track available each week - will your contribution be amongst them? You can check out Tuner's myspace site and groove your knees off to Black Well Monotony (my fave Tuner thang at the mo!).
David Cross has updated his diary and includes his thoughts on the forthcoming KCCC release. I interviewed David for the liner notes for this release. Listening to the show for the very first time since the gig, he was highly excited by what he heard.
No-Man have finished recording and mixing their latest record, Schoolyard Ghosts. It’s the sixth official studio album by Tim Bowness and Porcupine Tree’s Steve Wilson and features contributions from both Pat Mastelotto and Gavin Harrison, as well Fripp-collaborator Theo Travis.
Bill Rieflin has been preparing mixes from Slow Music concerts last year for release on DGM Live in the next few weeks. Bill is still lining up dates for the group in May.
