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!"

It Was On This Date In...
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 23, 2014
The 23rd March is a significant date in the Crim calendar marking as it does the release of not just one album but two. 23rd March 1973 saw Larksí Tongues In Aspic unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. As Rolling Stone put it "You canít dance to it, canít keep a beat to it, and it doesnít even make good background music for washing the dishes."

Eleven years later, March 23rd 1984 Three Of A Perfect Pair was the culmination of what had been a very difficult recording process giving birth to the third and final studio album of the 80s incarnation of the band. Record Mirror noted "I havenít heard such a dreadful din since I tripped up over the cat last week and fell downstairs. I hate King Crimson almost as much as I hate their fellow old bores Pink Floyd."

Your thoughts and views on either of these albums are welcomed on the guestbook.


Crimson-faced Lies
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sat., Mar 22, 2014
We've all heard of bare-faced lies but how about Crimson-faced lies? Although forgery and piracy are commonplace in Russia, the promoters in St Petersburg just flat our lied about the band who were playing there this week.
