Radical Action To Unseat The Hold Of Monkey Mind — King Crimson

You can now pre-order the new King Crimson. Here’s the key concept:

Three themed CDs of material recorded in 2015, each forming a separate discrete
performance with audio selected from a variety of shows and fully mixed from multi-track tapes by Chris Porter, Robert Fripp and David Singleton. As no audience is audible between tracks, this allows for a “virtual studio album” effect. (The current King Crimson line-up was deliberately conceived as a performing band rather than as a band concerned with making full studio recordings).

You can read more over at DGM news. Here’s a taste, along with artwork and video:

    I’m listening to it right now and it’s ace! Cos I’m a Crimhead I got the expanded version, merely because the booklet has 16 extra pages (although a dyed-in-the-wool Crimhead would have also got the “cheap” version for completeness. Happy memories of September 12th 2015 in Birmingham
