Video: Snippet of King Crimson’s 21st Century Schizoid Man Live (Hyde Park, 1969)

You will not believe it unless you read it with your own eyes, but Robert Fripp intends to reform King Crimson! In his diary posted on 6 September 2013 on the DGM (Discipline Global Mobile) Live website, Fripp says:

So, King Crimson is in motion. This is a very different reformation to what has gone before: seven players, four English and three American, with three drummers.

We already knew that Adrian Belew had been moonlighting in the Crimson Projekct over the last few years, but what can we expect from the next incarnation?

Apparently the band will begin rehearsals soon, with an expected stage visit sometime from September 2014! According to Discipline Global Mobile, Fripp elaborated that it might mean King Crimson circa 2014 could feature:

a conventional Back Line – Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin, Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto – reconfigured as the Front Line, with Mel Collins, Jakko Jakszyk and myself as Back Line.

I’m going to leave you with that amazing news, enjoy the rest of your day!

About noisynoodle

I am a noisy noodle hailing from Melbourne, Australia who loves listening to noise in all forms, but preferably in music, TV and film. I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!

    Looking forward to the reformation. Meanwhile, the 21st Century Schizoid Man clip you shared is always a pleasure to watch. Particularly because of those few confused reactions of the hippie crowd caught on tape. The apocalyptic, proto-heavy-metal riff of the song was not quite in tune with their never-ending “summer of love” phenomenon, methinks.

      The hippies in the video should be thankful they witnessed the band in action! I doubt the King Crimson reformation will make it to Australia, but I am very keen to see Adrian Belew & co. in early January play some Crimson classics.
