"So, King Crimson is in motion. This is a very different reformation to what has gone before: seven players, four English and three American, with three drummers.

The Seven-Headed Beast of Crim is in Go! mode."

Interesting!

One of the drummers is apparently Bill Rieflin of latter day REM fame..

Very!

Lots of speculation as to the line-up, as you can imagine...

UK: Robert Fripp (presumably!), plus any 3 from:- John Wetton, Ian McDonald, Gavin Harrison, Jakko Jacszyk

US: Bill Rieflin (confirmed), plus any 2 from:- Tony Levin, Adrian Belew, Pat Mastelotto

FWIW, I'd wager a small sum on RF, IMcD, GH, JW, BR, TL & PM

What's funny, is my brother had just left me a voice mail message about Crimso reforming.  Though, according to my brother, Fripp wasn't going to be involved.

As much as I love my brother, for some reason I am going to believe Jude over him.

I took me mandolin to the party, but no one asked me to play it.

This is fantastic news...and inspired. Fripp's ability to redesign and reconfigure KC is highly admirable...a new beast with three drummers. KC are one entity that I'd be happy to see perform live and who would not have to play anything from their back catalogue...I hope they will perform more than a few shows outside of the capital.

I think the chances of any European live shows are minimal considering how much Robert despises audiences over here (in fact he's only played churches and tiny venues with Toyah since 2000 I think).  I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

No real surprises in the lineup (if one's been following what's been going on 'recently') but I'm pleased for Jakko, especially.

I saw the "double trio" version of KC at The Royal Albert Hall in 1995 (Fripp, Belew, Levin, Bruford, Mastelotto, Gunn) and they were fantastic, albeit very much there to promote their then-current "Thrak" album. However, the set included a few surprises, such as "The Talking Drum", "Larks Tongues In Aspic Part II" and "Red" along with choice cuts from "Discipline" - I can remember "Elephant Talk", "Matte Kudasai" and "Indiscipline". A few people in the row behind me left before the end as it wasn't exactly easy listening, and a heckler kept requesting "Cat Food" (which they would've been very unlikely to play), but I thought the gig was wonderful...
Oh, and I remember Bill Bruford wore a bright yellow blazer which was the same colour as his drums !  Smiley

I think the main story here is a Belew less King Crimson.  Weird that next year will allow us to see/hear "King Crimson's" both with Adrian and without him...
