Uncertain Times Tour
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.
Composer Andrew Keeling was at Aylesbury on Monday this week and shared his impressions of the concert. The question is this: is it King Crimson who play the music; or, is the music which plays King Crimson? As I listened to The ConstruKction of Light on Monday evening in their concert at the Waterside Theatre I had a momentary and brief glimpse of the music standing outside and apart from the players themselves.
Many thanks to several guestbookers and Markus Reuter who pointed out that my reference to Eclipsed as being a Dutch magazine was completely wrong, not even near the mark and otherwise erroneous in every respect.
There’s a review of Starless over on All About Jazz

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!).
Robert has updated his diary to include the night at the Duck Room on the Soundscapes Do Dixie tour. This gig was the subject of much discussion on the guestbook largely because of the inclusion of a rendition of Starless - arguably the first time in public since 1974? Check it out..
