One thought on “Burning Shed News (August 2, 2018)

  1. kruekutt

    The Crimson set looks absolutely mouth-watering — including live takes on “Breathless” from Fripp’s solo album Exposure, “Moonchild” from The Court of the Crimson King and “Discipline” (there’s a great demo of it on the 2018 Tourbox).

    Also this nifty comment (from Sid Smith? David Singleton) in DGM’s press release:
    “King Crimson is a band that continues to defy conventional expectations. As listeners to last year’s rush-released official bootleg from June 2017 recorded in Chicago discovered, this band gets better by the year. Given the amount of rehearsals, practicing, constantly expanding repertoire base (nearly six hours’ worth of material ready to select from on any given night), wealth of experience among musicians, technicians/sound crew, more comfortable travelling arrangements, better PA systems/mixing desks & the fact that the band is playing, for the most part, in purpose built theatres rather than the more imaginatively named but sonically challenged venues that hosted rock gigs in previous decades, this should come as no surprise. But it does. Perhaps it’s still part of the Rock’n’Roll myth – the ‘hope I die before I get old’ thought process that seems forever associated with rock music that’s proved so difficult to alter. Whatever the reason, the concept of a band maturing, re-inventing itself and being able to present music from a lengthy history in recognisable but ever-changing ways, still with same sense of wonder as if it were newly-written, remains, if not unique, certainly notable.”
