Fripp & Haskell "The League of Gentlemen"

Postby picken on Mon Aug 06, 2007 9:52 am

Browsing the web I found that Robert Fripp & Gordon Haskell started a group called "The League of Gentlemen" around 1963/1964. And in fact at least 2 songs were released (on single?).

See e.g. emusic.com:
Haskell's history with Robert Fripp goes back to the days they spent together in the mid-1960's as members of the League of Gentlemen, a band that backed various American r&b stars on tour and cut a couple of singles.

and also: kingcrimsonlive
1965/66 The League of Gentlemen "Each little falling tear" UK Planet PLF 109 - released
1965/66 The League of Gentlemen "How can you tell" UK columbia DB 7666 - released

But I could not find anything more. What on earth did this sound like?

Anyone???

They probably want to keep this firmly hidden from view, like David Bowie tries to hide this alltime favorite (1967): The Laughing Gnome

Maybe you should check Fripp's diary, maybe you will find some answers there:

Different band, no relation. Fripp is not on these singles. see John Relph's Frippography notes.
