Any opinions on KCCC#35 yet?

I've listened to it a couple of times. The sound quality is good (not great: 3.5 out of 5) but sometimes it oscillates from one channel to the other, like a chewed cassete tape. On Ladies of the Road they loose track in the chorus, very funny...

I've just been catching up on ordering the last few CC's, so hopfully this is winging its way over the Atlantic right now.

Also ordered "At the End of Time" CD and mug (!). I'm sure it will make my coffee taste so much better. :wink:

April finds DGM's mail order shop announcing the latest must-have releases from the KCCC and others.

So, men and women alike, log off of Facebook, put down the WII remote, grab a cup of tea (or your beverage of choice) and crank up the Crimson as you read the latest from around our water cooler.

CJ3 Hits Another Home Run

If you thought volume one was amazing, wait until you hear Volume Two of the Crimson Jazz Trio's "King Crimson Songbook".

Tickles and Twitter

The latest Hot Tickle from DGMLive is 'Idea Slow Drums'. As for Twitter, or "Tweet of a Perfect Pair" as Sid so cleverly stated, read the latest DGMLive updates on the most recent (at least that we are aware of) social networking site. Where else can you read riveting news such as "sounds coming down the chimney & out of fireplace in Chamber of Venality indicate the likelihood of a birds' nest at the top of the stack"?


Congratulations to Heitor Mendes Pannuti for connecting Robert Fripp to Flavor Flav in a mere two steps (surprised us!). Heitor connected them through Flea who played with Flav on George Clinton's track 'Paint the White House Black', as well as with Robert on "Sidi Mansour" by Cheikha Rimitti (a wonderful CD, btw, that we wish were not currently out of print). Other common, but slightly lengthier, solutions included Bill Laswell or Vernon Reid. Thank you, as always, to all who participated in this contest.


Connect Robert Fripp to Faith Hill in as few steps as possible, either through having played on the same track together, or having performed together live on stage, and e-mail solutions to with subject header DOS. One winner will be chosen at random from all entries with fewest number of steps, and they will receive a free Club CD of their choice.

We Recommend

Click on the following link to view all the latest additions to the shop including "Insurgentes" from Steven Wilson and "Radiation" from UKZ. We have also added a Women's style "Discipline" tee. We only ordered five of them (just kidding, of course!).

40th Anniversary Editions
In 1969 King Crimson's debut album was unleashed upon an unsuspecting public. Its release marked the beginning of a lengthy but unconventional career which has confounded expectations, transgressed boundaries and has kept fans and critics alike on their toes.

To celebrate 40 years of the Crimson Kings, DGM & Panegyric proudly announce the release of a series of CD/DVD-A editions of the original King Crimson studio albums.

Each CD/DVD-A release features the full original album plus bonus tracks on the CD. Two of the titles – Lizard & In the Court of the Crimson King feature entirely new 2009 stereo album mixes by Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp.

The DVD-A presents each album fully remixed into stunning 5.1 Surround Sound with Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) in the producer role and King Crimson founder member Robert Fripp as executive producer.

The first three titles are set for release this year with further titles to follow throughout 2010:

Red: September 21st 2009
In the Court of the Crimson King: October 12th 2009 (various editions)
Lizard: October 26th 2009

The (re)construction of a vintage Frippertronics gig
Alex "Stormy" Mundy has pieced together a stunning Frippertronics from 1981. "I managed to sync up the solos with the loops which were on separate reels" says Alex. "The only guide that I had was that you could hear the loops from Robert's guitar pickup when he wasn’t soloing." Fripp's soloing has a blistering urgency to it and the results (both sonically and musically) are devastatingly good. An absolute must-have for Frippertronics fans.

Disengage Online EP
In the run-up to the recording of Exposure in 1977, Robert Fripp asked John Wetton and Phil Collins to join him in the studio to try out track he was working on.

Consisting of four different takes of the same track, we get to hear the anatomy of Disengage as it begins to breath and stretch. It's interesting to hear each musician trying out little experiments, pockets, retreats and chancing the occasional headlong thrust as the temperature rises or the inclination takes them.

Not all of it us quite yet under their fingertips so we hear the musicians listening to the parts, their own groove, and the others in the room - though not always in that order. And how about that brief break-out solo from Robert on version 2. Phew! Never mind what might have been - here it is!

At only $2 FLAC / $1 mp3 for over 12 minutes worth of music you’d be mad not to download this one.

The Mincer Restored
King Crimson
Live in Zurich
November 15, 1973

When the track The Mincer appeared on Starless & Bible Black it represented a new way of approaching the process for Crimson; taking live improvisations and then editing and over-dubbing new parts to create an interesting hybrid.

In an exclusive interview, Crimson violinist David Cross talks about this approach in the liner notes to this concert.

Although parts of this show recorded at Zurich’s Volkhaus on the 15th November 1973 have been previously released on disc 4 of The Great Deceiver box set, this is the first time the entire performance that night has seen the light of day.

Using bootleg sources to restore that section of the gig originally excised to create The Mincer, David Singleton and Alex Mundy have recreated an evening of music which underscores Crimson’s reputation as one of the classic must-see live acts of the 70s.

This double album is available for pre-order now at DGMLive

Dear friends,
May has arrived and brings with it, not only better weather for many parts of the Northern Hemisphere, but also your (drum roll please) monthly DGM shop newsletter. We toyed with the idea of creating a FIFA World Cup themed newsletter, but realized we do not actually possess enough football (soccer for some of us!) vocabulary to pull it off. So, instead we have chosen whichever subject headers suit our fancy, and as usual, request that you bear with any of our potentially-pedestrian jokes.

To The Victors Go The Spoils

In our last full-size newsletter we ran two contests and are happy to announce that Lee Farber of Los Angeles is the recipient of a $50.00 gift certificate to the DGM shop for being the only entrant to provide the three correct dates. Question 3 stumped many who gave us the date for the start of the DGMLive site, but the date of first version of the DGM website launched July 21, 1998. Lee must have purchased one of our KC calendars!

We next move onto the DOS contest, where things really begin to get interesting. First of all, a big thank you to so many who took the time to provide three solutions linking Robert Fripp to Eric Clapton, and we are amazed at how many were able to do so in a collective six steps. Many provided two step solutions through Mel Collins, Daryl Hall, David Bowie, Ian Wallace, Elton John and Phil Collins. We chose one winner at random, and offer our congratulations to Jeffrey Grondahl of Connecticut. Jeffrey can choose any t-shirt in the shop as his gift.

To preface our last contest, we began by mentioning how Degrees of Separation often revolve around Kevin Bacon, and we were surprised at how many provided creative solutions for this too. Although no prizes awarded, we wanted to list a few honorable mentions for their creativity. Christopher Fenn is a stage manager and guitar tech for Kevin Bacon, and when previously working with Blue Oyster Cult, had the opportunity to meet members of KC. We know this does not follow the rules, but thought it was an interesting tidbit. Johm Lovaas and Mark (no last name submitted) were able to connect KB and RF musically through, none other than Daryl Hall! The Bacon Brothers performed on an episode of Live from Daryl's House. Alex Johnston actually confirmed the Kevin Bacon Degrees theory by connecting RF and Eric Clapton through Bacon! Kevin acted in the movie 'Animal House' with John Belushi. Donald Dunn of Booker T. & the M.G.s played bass in the 'Blues Brothers' and also played on Clapton's 'Money and Cigarettes' album. Way to go Alex! And, we won't go into details, but David Martin's "obvious, controversial and concrete thinking" solutions took us by surprise to say the least!

Now, for the next DOS contest, same rules apply....please provide three solutions connecting RF to Michael McDonald and email them to with subject header DOS. One winner will be chosen at random from all with fewest number of collective solutions and will win a free t-shirt from the DGM shop.

Gunn Your Engines

Trey Gunn is back with a new CD "Modulator", to be released mid May. Check out the following link to read the interesting history of the birth of this disc which includes a live drum solo from Marco Minnemann.

Trey Gunn - Modulator

Slick Bass

Robert Fripp, Pat Mastelotto, Marco Minnemann and more join bassist Julie Slick, of Adrian Belew Power Trio fame, on her debut self-titled album. Click on the following link to pre-order your copy now, or to learn more about this exciting new release.

Julie Slick - Julie Slick

MAY I Have a Discount Please?

Well, yes you MAY. For the month of May, each disc in the 30th Anniversary KC Series, from In The Court through EleKtrik, is listed at a 15% savings. This is great way to make sure your collection of Crimson is complete, or to introduce a friend to true classics.

May 2010 Sale

Reorganizing ProjeKct

It pays to Spring Clean (we have added a few more sale items to this category, by the way). As we continue to better organize, we discovered a handful of the out-of-print ProjeKct box sets which we have added to the shop.

King Crimson - The ProjeKcts - Box Set


The latest Hot Tickle is 'Non Loop Idea VII'...visit for more details or to obtain this free download!

On The Marquee

'In The Wake', 'Islands', and 'Beat' are still slated as the next releases in the 40th Anniversary series and we are aiming now for beginning with a September release and will keep you posted. We will also bring news of our next Club CD in our forthcoming newsletter. The latest from Theo Travis and Robert Fripp, as well as Jakko's CD, will be added shortly and we will send news when they are available. On the merch front, due to continued suggestions, we are creating a silk version of the In The Court tie, details coming soon. And for all you grillers out there, a Schizoid apron is in the works too!

As always, we thank you for your time and ask only that you continue to enjoy the music,

Not exactly an Inner Knot Newsletter but I found at their Facebook page they are making a big discount for those who buy the whole 1995 tour (European leg - 14 shows). Each show would cost $ 4,28 (flac) or $ 3,28 (mp3).

The funny thing is that I was thinking about this last week and remembering that Darren said about the high price of each download.

Ok, 60 bucks isn't cheap but it seems a bargain. I hope they do it again for the Larks'/Starless era. :D

There is a change the will do that as on the news section of DGMLive the ask people there thoughts about this "new" concept.

DGMLive wrote:]Obviously this is something of an experiment and we’ll monitor the situation to see if this is worth doing with other KC and related tours. Please let us know your thoughts and views over on the guest book.

Yeah - it's a nice idea but if the tour is a bit "samey" then I won't be parting with the cash. Of course, the 95 tour is a bit samey, not like the 2000 tour which was packed with improvs and alterations to the setlist. I'm going to buy the gig I was at though!

But what the fans really, really, really want is the release of the video footage in a deluxe package from the BootlegTV series of 2000. I think a few of us would pay up for such a deal. I wish they'd stop beating around the bush with that one!
