The King Crimson Performance Repository

Postby vrooom on Sat May 14, 2011 1:59 am

A long time ago, one of our members called Nisimoto, produced what was the definitive resource for live performances of the band. It was a kind of discography of bootlegs, but more than that. A while back, he decided to stop working on this reference guide and deleted his site for reasons only known to him, and I'm certainly not going to press him on it. However, someone took it upon themselves to use the Internet Time Machine and to put a copy of the resource on a Geocities website.

This has bothered me for some time, because I thought it was a lot of good work gone to waste and despite the misgivings of the originator, I wanted to preserve the discography too. I've held off, and since its demise I often get the odd email asking me where to find it, asking where it went, and now I think there's been enough time passed for us to host an archive version of the King Crimson live website here.

I'm not updating it, I'm not the creator or librarian, I'm just keeping a digital copy available. If anyone out there wants to make additions to the work, I am more than willing to integrate their work into the archive in order to keep it up-to-date, but I doubt anyone would want to take on such an arduous responsibility.

But now, you can access a copy of that old site here:

Now pay thanks to Nisi for his hard work.

This is amazingly thorough. I salute you nisi for your brilliant work. You could possibly have been the biggest Crimso fan ever. I know you may be a bit fed up with them now (and their Kenny G rip-offs) but love and hate are similar animals. :mrgreen:

I don't deserve any thanks. All rewards should go to the creator. I was going to do this at the time, but didn't want to upset Nishi-san. But I think enough time has passed to re-evaluate his work and give it the forum it deserves. (Of course, if Nishi objects then I'll take it down).

This is an astonishing piece of work; it was always one of my favorite and most-used King Crimson references. I'm delighted to see it accessible again, and hope that Nisimoto won't object to it finding a new home here.

Thanks for putting this awesome site back up. Does anyone have any idea why Nisimoto felt the need to pull this outstanding resource? I wonder if it was the cost to maintain his site. He obviously put a tremendous amount of work into it....

might want to fix the Links link, it goes to an unrelated page, with popups. :|

History is for everyone.
Knowledge is for everyone.
Don't let someone put the copyright on it.
KingCrimsonLive could be anybody.
Nisimoto is just a bastard who wrote the dirty HTML manually.
