Jeez! I thought one guy would be playing a full drumset, another a drumset with ethnic percussion and the other with percussion you couldn't play from a stool (gongs and whatnot)--not 3 full drumsets!

Yes. If you look further on the page, there's a brief clip of Rieflin playing A Sailor's Tale, and Schizoid Man and Red are also confirmed. Also, Rieflin also plays mellotron.

So if you haven't been paying attention, King Crimson are now in rehearsals.


And pictures from Fripp's diary:

Great news they are still kicking.

I had a hold of a rare KC vinyl album and wanted some opinions from the Crimsonians out there.

The album was the vinyl of second studio release In the Wake of Poseidon complete with Pink Island label so is original pressing. very good condition, dealer selling for another guy on consignment and wanted $70 Aus for it. Its a lot of money really for what it is tho I was tempted.

Would anyone out there pay that much for it?

I know it looked nice with gatefold and great cover art but pushing nigh to $100 for an album stretched it for me. I did like the copy the dealer had of vinyl Genesis TLLDOBroadway, and TD's Phaedra - both in exc condition and rare original pressings. Anyway just throwing it out there.

I'm guessing they will tour otherwise why bother putting all this together. An album imo is less likely than a tour(look at the band Kansas for proof of touring as more lucrative than recording). Anyway, I'll consider seeing them if they play in my area. If there is going to be a new album then it goes without saying that should be an automatic purchase for many of us.

OMFG!!

I'm so out of touch with prog-news, that until today (December 15) I heard about these news!!

I'm a little sad that Adrian B won't be in the project, but nevertheless, the beast is back!!

I like the 3 drummers idea.

 

One goes left, the other goes right and the other goes, who knows where, and he can take the guitar in any direction he feels like, and it will be a treat to see how well everyone goofs around and allows him the freedom to move around with the guitar, which I think is what he wants to do, something that would be a much more rock-like version of some of his solo albums without the song pretexts in the way!

 

If that is the case, this will be worth checking out! If it's just a bunch of songs, I doubt that this will be worth a nickel, though I trust Robert enough, to feel that it will be worth it.

 

I would like to see some serious free form stuff, and see the changes each night in concert. That would be a treat, and it would show that one of the game's best improvisational artists, is still at it, and not afraid to do it!


I understand that Fripp is indeed particularly interested in touring, and and I'd really like to see them if they come close. However, I would rather get to hear some of the songs I really love that haven't been able to hear live. Some improvs during the concert would be very cool indeed, since it wouldn't be a Crimson concert otherwise. But if the show consisted only of improvs, I'm afraid I might just as well pass on it, it's kind of expensive and time consuming going on a 3 hour trip and back, plus ticket prices, and not be totally sure I'll love it.

... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

What's their next step? 5 drummers, 4 bass players, 8 saxophones and one Fripp?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't a scarcity of miracles actually NOT a king crimson album? I was under the impression it was a different project. So I'm not understanding all the comparisons.

As for the 3 drummers, I'd guess its most likely the 2 drummer set up that crimson had a few years back when they still toured with Belew, plus some guy who makes sound effects such as another Jamie Buir. Crimson has never actually ventured into so called world music so I doubt they'll do something as interesting as adding bongos, djembe, or tabla.

As long as Fripp is in it I will buy it.


3 drummers is ridiculous though - but a lot of fun

Well, every incarnation of King Crimson is predictable in the way that they never end up playing what people expected from them

Three drummers, with a guitarist that hates cymbals.  This could be fun.
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

^Well it could mean one behind a drum kit, another sitting at some Indian tablas while the third is playing triangles and xylophones. (well a man can hope...) 
I do however think this'll turn out as 3 guys behind drumming kits...

I see no need for two extra drummers when they've already got one that plays like three at the same time...
