"That’s the way you lie. That’s the way people do it in court. I’ve seen it many, many times. Well, I don’t remember, but if. And she said 35 times before the FBI interview that she couldn’t remember? If you can remember and you don’t — if you say — and you say, I can’t remember, then that’s as false a perjurious statement as if you flat-out gave a false statement." Jeff Sessions
“History is a set of lies agreed upon.”
“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
"I might have hit the lamp with my arm, but I don't remember!"
Dr. Vinny Boom Baa
When referencing a band, consistency is usually a variable. It could be used to denote genre, quality or members.
In the case of King Crimson live, all three fittingly apply:
- Although their music is stereotypically categorized as Prog(ressive), it actually occupies it's long-reserved space as an ever-morphing hybrid that is equally comfortable with pounding power-chord sequences and delicate woodwind, cymbal and hushed-vocal passages.
- The brand is regal. Over 48 years, each performance is a piece of audio art, where painstaking precision collides with free-form interplay.
- Robert Fripp is the bedrock. The foundation on which this legendary congregation of like-minded cohorts adhere to the metronomic vision, but often radically alter the path and deviate the trajectory of the author's flights.
The current eight-headed monster witnessed on the Radical Action Tour 2017 is a percussion-heavy assemblage of gifted players who breath life as one into old and new selections. Synchronicity, perception and passion were always on display along with an obvious joy of creating
such compelling sounds.
If you are lucky enough to get the chance to attend an upcoming recital, don't miss it.

"Love's no excuse to procreate"
* Boston in the late seventies/early eighties was very fertile musical ground, especially for those of the more subverted, adventurous and experimental variety!
I was in the epicenter of the local scene as an original host of the ever-present
Late Risers Club on WTBS/WMBR and WBCN
playing records by (now) legendary bands such as those included in tonight's Transmission.
A favorite then and now was/is Human Sexual Response. Their two studio albums Fig.14 and In A Roman Mood are available for your at home pleasure and I thought you would enjoy these archived videos, including the infamous closing of 5 All Night (a local late-night TV show). Fines were levied butt fun was had by all. The dance floor is filled with a who's who of club-dwellers such as our fearless radio leader Oedipus, Lou Miami, Jeannie Miller and so many others.
I'm literally out the door in a few minutes to attend the
40th Year Reunion HSR Concert and obligatory after-party!
I'm looking forward to seeing old friends, hearing great music
and getting into more rock and roll trouble.
**A great show in Boston by both Unnatural Axe and Human Sexual Response.
Richie Parsons and the boys ripped it up all over the crowed in typical UA fashion!
HSR never sounded or looked better! So cool to see so many favorite faces at the same time. A special thanks to Windle and the band for their hospitality and talent
