’79/’80 MEMORIES WANTED
Posted by Sid Smith on Jul 5, 2021

Did you see the Frippertronics tour of 1979 in Europe or Northern America? Did you ever catch the League Of Gentlemen in concert during 1980. King Crimson biographer, Sid Smith is currently working on an account of the period and is inviting eyewitness accounts from folks who were there at the time. 

Sid says “I can’t guarantee that anything that I get sent will make it into print but it will all help give me a sense of the period through first-hand accounts.”

What impression did seeing all that bleeping and droning have on you? Were you moved by your exposure to the small, mobile, intelligent unit or did it leave you cold? 

Did your legs snap like whipcords on the dance floor as you cut the rug to The League Of Gentlemen or were you there shouting “SCHIZZZZOID MAAAAAN.”

If you want to jot down your thoughts and impressions of the period, good or bad, to help Sid get a feel of the times, you can contact him via Twitter, Facebook or send him an email via thesidsmith at g mail dot com. 

If you have any photographs, ticket stubs, and memorabilia from any of the tours during 1979 and 1980, then he’d be interested in those as well.
