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!"

Perry, Fripp & Eno
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Tue., Apr 1, 2014
Today marks the release of two recently discovered tapes found in the DGMLie archive by Alex Mundy featuring percussionist Frank Perry, Brian Eno and Robert Fripp.



Spiral Of Lo consists of a solo percussion set by Frank Perry recorded at Command Studios in June 1972 during the making of Keith Tippett’s Fripp-produced Blueprint album.



The other session was a solo VCS3 loop by Brian Eno, which hails from the Matching Mole’s Little Red Record sessions, again at Command Studios.  Fripp then overdubbed acoustic and sustained electric passages over both sessions.

They originally formed the backing tracks for The Cosmic Children album, a proposed Fripp collaboration with Walli Elmlark, a New York Journalist and wicca witch, which was never released and whose master tapes have long been lost.  

Side one of The Cosmic Children consisted of Fripp and Elmlark in conversation over the Perry / Fripp backing track, while side two had Elmlark in conversation with well-known London DJ Jeff Dexter as the Fripp and Eno piece played in the background.

Speaking to NME’s Simon Stable in July 1972 Fripp stated: "The function of the album is to reach out to the Children like the drummer from Badfinger, I want to say; ’You’re not nutty, you’re not a freak because you can’t relate to what’s around you…’ "

The album was discussed when Fripp gave an interview with Trouser Press’s Ihor Slabicky in 1978:

RF: The music for it was a 45-second piece by Eno on synthesizer which I did in a way that lasted about 20 minutes. I just repeated it time and time again and cross-faded it in places. Side one has a percussion solo by Frank Perry, who’s a quite remarkable percussion player. But overall it wasn’t a very good album. It certainly wasn’t a commercial one, so it was never released.

Sadly the spoken passages of The Cosmic Children were not part of the cache of tapes found in the DGM tape store in February this year. However, after some careful Mister Stormy restoration work, the separate instrumental tracks by Perry and Eno, along with their Fripp overdubs, are now available here on DGMLie as Spiral Of Lo. You can read my take over on the blog.

Bill & Yes
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Mar 27, 2014
Bill Bruford played his last gig with Yes in Boston, Massachusetts on March 27th 1972. They were supported that night by a happening beat combo called King Crimson whose gig is available here.  Bill would go onto record Close To The Edge and, of course, quit Yes for KC once it was completed.



More recently Panegyric have announced the forthcoming reissue of The Yes Album with brand new stereo and 5.1 mixes by Steven Wilson. You can find out more about the CD/DVD-A edition here and the CD/Blu-Ray edition here.

The Road To Red At Home 31 & 32
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Mar 27, 2014
It's been a while since we had a few The Road To Red At Home pix, so here's two for the price of one. First up here's Clive's package lounging about in Bedfordshire



And because this is the internet, there has to be a cat. Kos, from an undisclosed location somewhere on the planet (presumably), makes it so.

Meanwhile Chris McGarel takes Live In Tokyo for a spin. 


Management Assistant wanted
:: Posted by David S on Wed., Mar 26, 2014

We have just posted an "Assistant wanted" job description on Linkedin - and as we all know that DGMLive is far more "Linked in" than anywhere else, it seems only right to post it here as well.

 

With the benefits of cut and paste - the advert reads  :

 

We are seeking an outstanding candidate interested in music management, with a particular focus on marketing and the exciting, fast-changing world of digital media.   
The successful candidate would join our management team, with a brief to expand the reach of the catalogue and the artists – covering, for example, the areas of social media, Youtube, sync licenses, radio, press, sponsorships and personal appearances.

We invite applications from bright, ambitious candidates who share our passion for the arts and who want to pursue a career supporting them.
Relevant educational qualifications are an advantage but not a requirement.

DGM is a small independent company based near Salisbury, UK.  Ideally, candidates would work in our office for an initial period. Thereafter, working at a distance combined with regular meetings in person could be arranged if needed.

The varied role of the winning candidate will include the following tasks :

1. Helping develop a social media strategy and then overseeing this on a daily basis. The candidate would need to be confident in writing postings for Twitter, Facebook and mailing lists

2. Developing and managing relationships with business partners in such key areas as sync licenses and sponsorships.

3. Helping develop and oversee strategies for radio & press.

4. Arranging and overseeing suitable personal appearances.

 

SKILLS

·                      Strong organizational skills – The ability to co-ordinate and micro-manage a series of diverse initiatives.

·                      Strong communication skills – Phone and face-to-face. Much of the role is about managing relationships.

·                      Good command of the English language :  The ability to create content for social media and e-newletters, as well as communicate clearly and appropriately in written correspondence.

·                      Good technical skills: Confident using all basic Office programmes and online social media applications. Also able to research, learn and adopt appropriate new software.

 

You should be

·                      Self-motivated : We encourage and support initiative, and are always available to offer advice and encouragement. We do not, however, expect to oversee tasks to ensure that they are completed on time to a high standard.

·                      Diligent and organized with a good attention to detail : We need a candidate to whom we can reliably delegate, confident in the knowledge that items will not be forgotten or overlooked.

·                      Highly personable: A confident, personable individual, with a friendly nature who fits in neatly with our team.

·                      Willing to learn: We are not expecting a candidate with knowledge of all areas. We want a bright individual, who displays a willingness to learn and undertake independent research. The right person will grow and use this role as a great step in their career.

 

Should there be any interested souls out there, a CV should be dispatched by email, owl or carrier pigeon to indeg @ dgmhq.com (without the spaces). 

 

 

 

 


The photographer knew their faces well...

King Crimson Record Club This Weekend
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Wed., Mar 26, 2014
The King Crimson Record Club is featuring Larks' Tongues In Aspic this month.



If you're a Twitter user the date for your diary is Friday 28th March at 7.30pm GMT. You'll need to use the #KCRC hashtag to join in the chat.

Facebook users get their turn on Saturday 29th March at 7.30pm GMT (Facebook of Saturday, anyone?). You'll need to be a member of the Facebook King Crimson Record Club group.

If you've not come across it before, the King Crimson Record Club takes place on Twitter and Facebook and the idea is that Crimheads around the world sit down at a pre-arranged time to play their copy of the album and comment upon it in real time with other Crimheads.

Last month In The Court Of The Crimson King was played and discussed (you can see the Storyfied conversation over on the blog).
