FYI, just saw this where Jakko Mjakszyk of modern day King Crimson is putting our a new solo album this October, Sercrets and Lies.  Info from his website below.


‘Secrets & Lies’ contains 10 songs that explore topics such as obsession, betrayal, the shifting grounds of contemporary politics, and the tangled threads of family history, Secrets And Lies balances sensitive writing, musical technique, and accessible tunes cast in an impressively cinematic sound world. With three of the tracks, Separation, Under Lock & Key and Uncertain Times originating in King Crimson's writing sessions, the result is a mature work brimming with yearning melodies in symphonic or widescreen settings, fluid guitar work, and Jakko’s heartfelt, emotional vocals.

The album features Jakszyk joined by his King Crimson bandmates Robert Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Tony Levin & Mel Collins, as well as appearances from John Giblin (Simple Minds), Mark King (Level 42), Peter Hammill (Van der Graff Generator) and noted British comedian Al Murray.

‘Secrets & Lies’ will be released as a Limited CD+DVD Digipak (featuring 5.1 mix), Gatefold LP + CD & as Digital Album. The cover art was created by Sam Chegini, with design by Phil Smee, and you can find the full track-listing below:

1. Before I Met You
2. The Trouble With Angels
3. Fools Mandate
4. The Rotters Club is Closing Down
5. Uncertain Times
6. It Would All Make Sense
7. Secrets, Lies & Stolen Memories
8. Under Lock & Key
9. The Borders We Traded
10. Trading Borders
11. Separation

Only thing I found was on Crimson's web page which says:
The website includes this video which features Jakko soloing on new track Fool's Mandate, co-written by Peter Hammill. . .

Hi,

I think I'm gonna pass ... just what we need for "progressive music" ... more songs!

I wonder if people really know what "progressive music" is all about ... ohhh yeah ... freedom to write more "songs"!!!!!!!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com
