The ambition of what’s being attempted, let alone achieved, makes for extraordinary listening. Fast-moving and furious, even the somewhat raggy sound can’t disguise the fact that this is astonishing stuff. No wonder an excited RF noted in his dairy after the gig “This band will be colossal – it’s that good. For me, this is the band I’ve spent four years getting ready for.”
Material that would form a staple part of King Crimson repertoire for the next twenty-odd years is lifted sizzling hot and startlingly new from the creative forge that was Moles. Mind those flying sparks! First released in 2000 as KCCC11.
