First, an artifact which originated in the First (some claim “only”) Great Progressive Rock Era:
Now technically, this was not King Crimson, but a band of Crimson expats under the name “21st Century Schizoid Band”; however, all of them except the singer were at one time members of King Crimson, and Mellotron man Ian McDonald played on the original version in 1969. (If that’s Michael Giles on drums, and it looks like him, so did he.)
Prog magazine report that Robert Fripp has announced the reformation of King Crimson.
It will be the first time the band have been in action since 2008, and comes in contrast to a declaration made by Fripp last year that he would be retiring from the music industry.
And if you look at the new lineup, you’ll see the name of Jakko Jakszyk — and that’s who sang on that clip of “Epitaph.”
For Crimson 8.0 (I think), Fripp is deploying three drummers. Make of that what you will.
