That weird little animated gif he has totally freaks me out man! It's worse than the flying monkey and clown fears I have COMBINED!

I agree. I have often wished he would chance it to something a little less....let's say...strange. I honestly cringe when I see his posts.

stimpsoncat, I know what you mean about flying monkeys and clowns! They scare the "beejesus" outa me! Anti's logo came from the 1969 King Crimson album (yes..... album!). "Court of the Crimson King". [url]http://users.utu.fi/petolo/crimson/court.html[/url] Greg Lake (later of Emerson, Lake and Palmer)was the backbone of that group. DaMan

DaMan - Greg Lake was hardly the backbone of KC. If anyone it is Robert Fripp (KC is still around and [performing in various configurations). There have been about a dozen different personnel configurations for King Crimson (and multiple permutations of that dozen), with the most recent album being "Heavy ConstruKction" released in 2000. A remastered KC catalog has started appearing this year, and whether Fripp will put another King Crimson line-up together has yet to be determined. ANyway, if anyone wants to start a King Crimson thread, I'm a big fan [;)]

Vinyl..Oh my!...VINYL. Where's the old Technics turntable?? It's Friday night, the kids are at a football game and there's nothing better to do than reload and listen to some Blues Project, Paul Butterfield and the Velvet Underground. Hope they're out late.

Did anyone see this group on tour with Tool this year? I saw Tool in Indy and the opening act was some sweedish metal band. Just curious if King Crimson is any good. Live Free P.S. I know that Tool supports numerous left wing / socialist / Timothy Leary type organizations. They may suck politically, but the music still kicks ass.

I think it's f%*&ing wonderful myself. AND it's been around since 1969.Imagine how it must have looked to people back then. I love that album, and have everything KC did up until the mid-70s. OK, except Earthbound. Greg Lake may never have been the backbone of KC, but Gordon Haskell and and Boz Burrell, his replacements, weren't exactly competent at singing. In fact, they stank. John Wetton, who came in around 1973 (?) did the best job of all the singers, IMO. Boz: "I'm tired, I've got a cold, and I'm singing." Pete Sinfield: "That proves you're ignorant." Fripp's comment on the affair: Some days are better than others..... KC- that music really sounds good, esp. lately. Irony-free. No BS.

Boz Burrell, bass player for [b][i]Bad Company[/i][/b], also came from King Crimson.

Well- I feel vindicated. I suggested that Tool was indeed, just that, a tool of lefty causes, on a thread a while back on this forum, and took a lot of stick for it. Humph. Unfortunately, there are a lot of other rock, pop, and rap acts that do just that as well. Don't buy their CDs, if you don't want money going to organisations and individuals that want to take your freedoms away. To put it in context, would you buy CDs from an artist who gave money to Osama bin-Laden?

Very unobtrusive, tasteful bassist. Played a fretless Ampeg when I saw him w/ BC in 1976. Just keep him away from a microphone :^).

Me too, looks like something out of Heavy Metal or John Carpenters "The Thing" Kind or relieved it is from a 60 album cover.

Ahhhhh... Lou Reed at his finest. Few folks actually know that this was Andy Warhole's band; he did more that just paint cows, soup cans, and shoot heroine while dressed as a woman!

Before you wind up with a foot flavored tongue you might not want to take what everyone says at face value. Just because one person says it or even 100,000 people say it, it doesn't make it true. Tool supported Bill Hicks who was a very hard edged comedian. What Bill Hicks' politics entailed I do not personally know except he was in favor of legalizing drugs. If you have proof of Tools political leaning please post them here for all to see. One person saying he knows this guy with a buddy who has a cousin that says Tool is a bunch of leftists does not make it so.

OK OK Now I know where it comes from... Sooooo...what in Gods name IS it?!?!?!?! It looks like some really freaky dude trying to 'thump' someone and blowing his own ear or finger to bits. What's with the claw? Bloody weird (literally) and somehow reminds me of 'Wizards'... And AntiUSSA...I just want you to know...my current company pays for my therapy...so BRING IT ON!

The image is from both sides of the album cover, that I made into an animation for fun. While I have never had the luxury of seeing King Crimson, I have seen Hawkwind twice, and they make KC look mainstream and tame! Hawkwind has the same style music, but goes a whole lot further into your head, and they provide 360* trip screens for your viewing pleasure. FWIW: I really remember very little of either of the Hawkwind concerts, due to excessive substance abuse at the time... I also met and partied with the "Dead Milkmen" the day they cut their first album. We we're at a bonfire party that the drummers former roommate was having, and they rolled in and jammed for us... For any of you that are fans, STU was the guy having the party. The Milkmen wrote a song about STU and it's on one of their albums!
