About King Crimson...

I don't understand at all why people who don't like King Crimson don't seem to hear what I hear when I listen to them. Maybe God just intended for me to go through life fucked in the head, I dunno. But when I listen to something like "Level Five," I rarely miss a beat...




All I know is, every time I hear KC doing the thing they do, whatever it is that makes my spirit tick gets a bit frisky. Every time. Hell if I know why.

Enjoy...

    Bartkid sez,
    Their loss, not yours.
    This, too, used to bother me, but eventually, I just let it go.
    Every so often, tho', I find someone else who appreciates KC. It is like finding someone who shares a secret language.
    The 18- or 19-year-old son of a casual friend spotted me wearing a KC shirt and gave me the thumbs up. He came to know them two years prior, via the bands Battles and the Mars Volta.
    Another time, I was at a conference, and one of the main speakers spotted my yellow Three of a Perfect Pair t-shirt. His face just burst into a beaming smile as he insisted I needed to track down the studio sessions bootleg.

    By the way, check out the 15th of 15 linked videos to the L5 video. The title says simply KING CRIMSON, but it is "Waiting Man". Bill, Tony, Ade, and ol' Spider-Fingers just lay into it so divinely.
