A Winner Writes...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Apr 15, 2012

Rick Mascarini was the winner of our recent Pat Mastelotto Recidivate competition and here he is with his prize...

Rick writes "I arrived home yesterday (Friday 13th of April) from another long business excursion to find my "prize" having arrived while I was on the road. The picture was taken w/ my now trusty iPad 2 along with the P@ music playing from the same said device.  Wonderful that I can travel and have these gems playing on headphones while sitting in airplanes. Thanks again for the contests and I'm very proud to be a lucky winner!"

Crimso At Glasto!
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Jun 29, 2015
My thanks to a pal who sent the following regarding King Crimson and the Glastonbury Festival. "Have your Glasto spies sent you this? - The Unthanks doing Starless. Something of a Crimson sandwich on the main stage on Saturday with them opening and Kanye doing something or other with a bit of Schizoid Man (at around 5.00 mins). Culturally significant!"

Chris Squire
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jun 28, 2015
There’s been an outpouring of tributes paid to Yes bassist, Chris Squire, following the announcement of his death from leukemia today.

Bill Bruford has posted the following message online.

Really saddened to hear of the death of my old Yes band-mate, Chris Squire. I shall remember him fondly; one of the twin rocks upon which Yes was founded and, I believe, the only member to have been present and correct, Rickenbacker at the ready, on every tour. He and I had a working relationship built around our differences. Despite, or perhaps because of, the old chestnut about creative tension, it seemed, strangely, to work.

He had an approach that contrasted sharply with the somewhat monotonic, immobile bass parts of today. His lines were important; counter-melodic structural components that you were as likely to go away humming as the top line melody; little stand-alone works of art in themselves. Whenever I think of him, which is not infrequently, I think of the over-driven fuzz of the sinewy staccato hits in Close to the Edge (6’04” and on) or a couple of minutes later where he sounds like a tuba (8’.00”). While he may have taken a while to arrive at the finished article, it was always worth waiting for. And then he would sing a different part on top.

An individualist in an age when it was possible to establish individuality, Chris fearlessly staked out a whole protectorate of bass playing in which he was lord and master. I suspect he knew not only that he gave millions of people pleasure with his music, but also that he was fortunate to be able to do so. I offer sincere condolences to his family.

Adios, partner. Bill.

Pat's Projects
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Jun 28, 2015
The ever-busy Pat Mastelotto has several new projects going live at the moment. First up is his collaboration with guitarist David Kollar and trumpeter, Paulo Raineri, collectively entitled KoMaRa. Their album, Bloom features this handsome character as the cover star, drawn by Tool's Adam Jones.

You can order Bloom here and you can read my take on the album over on the blog.

Elsewhere, Pat also appears on an album entitled  Inflamed Rides  featuring multi-instrumentalist, Lorenzo Esposito (Obake & Berserk), guitar Carmelo Pipitone and Porcupine Tree's Colin Edwin on bass. Pat contributed drums to the entire album last year following King Crimson's tour in the USA.

There are 3 days left on their pre-order campaign. Find out more details here and take a peek at their video here
