Mister Stormy's Monday Selection
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Oct 6, 2008
Another piece of gold dust from the archive.
http://www.dgmlive.com/archive.htm?artist=3&show=1335

Notes
Still in its early stages of development we get a chance to hear another take by Robin Miller and the uncredited string players who featured prominently on Prelude: Song Of The Gulls. Alongside Miller and crew, just beyond the studio baffles, Ian Wallace is heard beyond the studio baffles offering a drum pattern that would eventually be abandoned in favour of a far more minimal approach. Miller’s soaring melancholic tones have a forlorn beauty to them entirely in keeping with what is still on of Fripp’s most enduring and heartfelt melodies from the period.


Also there is a new download available at Michael Brooks site:

A sad, reflective guitar piece.


So you see two for the price of nothing :mrgreen:

Another tune from the archive:
http://www.dgmlive.com/archive.htm?artist=13&show=1337

Notes
It does exactly what it says on the tin - sustains. Long sinous lines flowing into one another. The main difference here is that this is Fripp and Gunn exchanging those long lunar notes as mediated by Pat Mastelotto. Thus there's a radiant wash of reverb you might not otherwise get. Put together by Pat from the ProjeKct X Heaven And Earth sessions this is heavenly music from 2000.

A outtake from Thrak http://www.dgmlive.com/archive.htm?artist=8&show=1313

Notes
Although Fashionable had been kicked around during the Vrooom sessions (it appears on KCCC 8) it was deemed not to have made the grade. Down but not yet out, the piece was resurrected once the team set up camp at Real World to record Thrak. This version has some interesting shifts of emphasis from undeveloped rendition laid down earlier in May at Woodstock - notably Tony Levin’s ascending line during the intro, some sculpted fills from Trey Gunn during the middle eight sections, and of course the high-register lattice work from Fripp. Despite such additions and refinements, ultimately the track was dropped onto the cutting room floor at Real World never to see the light of day until its rescue by Mister Stormy.

'Fashionable' also appears to comprise the part or whole of 'Funky Jam' from 2 shows in Buenos Aires.

And free, too! Sleepless is not one of my favorites, but this is a good, energetic performance. The last few Monday selections have been good: even the work in progress tracks have been both interesting and worth listening to for pleasure. I think Belew can retire that funk guitar part from Fashionable, though. This must be at least the third song where it's appeared in almost the same form.

A new one today!!
Recorded on an open mic during the making of Fripp & Sylvian’s album, The First Day, we hear Robert and Trey going though Fracture. In recent years (even on the 2008 tour) Fripp was often heard playing this piece (albeit unplugged) as part of his personal preparation after sound-checking. However, hearing it in this context is interesting since Fripp had approached Sylvian to join a rekindled Krim.

As we know David declined but it’s interesting to speculate whether this old Crim fave was ever considered for the F&S setlist or even the Double Trio? Clearly Trey is feeling his way through the runs and it sounds more like Fripp and Gunn working on some aspects of technique rather than an actual take.

Of course it’s all academic now but hearing these fast runs may well put the shivers up your spine as you get lost in a what-might’ve-been style reverie!

That's a nice one. "Fracture" (or just about any KC material) would have been pretty out of place in the S&F setlist, but it could have sounded pretty amazing all the same.
The sound of one hand clapping is the same as the sound of a tree falling when no one's around to hear it.

The thing is that RF has been using Fracture as a guitar warm-up for yonks, so he could probably play it in his sleep. Even in this config, it still sounds good.
