Lars Bryngelsson om King Crimson  

1969 ger King Crimson ut sin debutskiva In The Court Of The Crimson King, Vietnamkriget rasar som värst och omslaget har ingen information, ingen text och inga bokstäver. Bara en bild målad i enkla vattenfärger.

Den bilden har etsat sig fast hos många, bland annat hos Lars Bryngelsson, som fastnade - inte bara för den utan också - och kanske i första hand - för musiken som fanns på skivan.

King Crimson räknas som en av de mest inflytelserika inom den progressiva rocken och influerade många andra band - bland andra Genesis. Många musiker har kommit och gått i bandet King Crimson, bara grundaren Robert Fripp har varit med på samtliga skivor.  #bild=1325017#

I Klassikern gör Lars Bryngelsson en betraktelse över omslaget till skivan från 1969 och så spelar vi Twentyfirst century schizoid man från LPn In the court of the Crimson King.

Håll i hatten och njut!

I Klassikern (23/10) berättar Lars Bryngelsson historien bakom omslaget till den brittiska rockgruppen King Crimsons debutLP In the court of the Crimson King från 1969. Här spelas också låten Twentyfirst century schizoid man. Klassikern sänds i P1 på lördagar kl. 10.45.
Discópolis 9354 - Los sesenta: 56 Zappa-King Crimson - 23/05/16  

Episodio 56 de la serie Los sesenta de verdad con Frank Zappa y King Crimson. Hoy con dos de los mejores elepés de la historia, Hot Rats de Frank Zappa e In the Court of the Crimson King de King Crimson. Zappa ya había publicado notables discos con The Mothers of Invention pero su enorme productividad le permitía pensar en proyectos en solitario. Hot Rats fue el segundo. Lo hizo con Ian Underwood, que está en todos los temas tocando los teclados y vientos, y unos pocos músicos más. Hot Rats en un elepé de jazz-rock con excelentes composiciones y grandes solos , incluyendo a Don Harris en el violín. Si tuviera que elegir un solo disco del artista me quedaría con este. Con King Crimson me costaría más porque la formación liderada por Robert Fripp ha tenido incluso más cambios que la de Zappa. El disco de debut de King Crimson es magistral. Solo cinco temas pero todos subdivididos en pequeñas partes como si fueran suites. Oímos tres de ellas reproduciendo un vinilo inglés de buen prensaje y primera edición. Si prestáis atención hasta oiréis algún crepitar de la aguja al leer los surcos...pero suena...¡como nunca!. No creo que hayáis oído antes en la radio este disco reproducido de esta forma. En la serie busco esto, oír los epelés de los sesenta de verdad, tal y como se oían entonces, al margen de que también hay una clara definición de tipo estético.

Discópolis 9675 - 1970 (69) King Crimson - 06/03/17  

En el capítulo 69 de la serie sobre el año 1970 escuchamos integro el tercer elepé de King Crimson titulado Lizard editado en el Reino Unido en diciembre y casi dos años después en España, con un prensaje deplorable. Ese dato es importante porque Robert Fripp estaba empleando por primera vez en el Rock el concepto tensión-relax lo que implicaba pasar del pppp al superfuerte con una dinámica muy amplia que los vinilos españoles no soportaban. King Crimson se habían quedado en cuarteto con Mel Collins en el saxo y la flauta como elemento principal. Cuatro temas en la cara a y una larga suite en la b con Jon Anderson de Yes como vocalista invitado y otros músicos tan excepcionales como el pianista de vanguardia Keith Tippet. Por supuesto que seguía el poeta Peter Sinfield haciendo una letras barrocas y crípticas e influyendo además en la portada que encargo a un amigo suyo llamado Gini Barris. Este hizo una portada tan bonita que vale la pena tener el disco solo por su portada. (En elepé no en cedé claro). A algunos tanta intensidad y tan larga les aburre, pero a otros nos maravilla. Lizard es obra maestra.- Para contrastar y ver cuáles son las diferencias entre una obra de Rock sinfónico y otra canción convencional de Rock selecciono una pieza del cuarto disco del grupo norteamericano Spirit, que está muy bien hecha pero que es diametralmente opuesta. Para gustos, colores, pero esto también existió aunque las emisoras jamás lo programaran.

Martin Luther King's Second Martyrdom  

Soon, every TV station and network, and many of the nation's radio stations, will air stock film footage (or tape) of Martin Luther King, Jr., his handsome dark face shining in a sea of dark faces, captured in his moment of triumph: the "I Have a Dream" speech in Washington. They will gladly air this 'safe' Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who spoke loftily and eloquently of dreams. Few will dare air his remarks made at Riverside Church in New York City, where an older, wiser Martin spoke, not of dreams but of realities -- of social, and especially economic injustice -- of rampant American militarism, and yes -- the nightmare of white racism. One of those with him, who, too, would become a Rev. Dr., was Vincent Harding, a man who loved Martin, and who knew him as a brother, rather than an icon. Rev. Dr. Harding, a leading theologian and historian, wanted others to know the Martin he'd known; so he wrote a book: Martin Luther King: The Inconvenient Hero (Maryknoll, N.Y.: Orbis, 1996 [8th printing]). As Harding teaches us, King fell into the pit of betrayal, when he took on the war in Vietnam: ".... King was bitterly rebuked for taking on the issue of the war. Some called it a diversion from the issue of black rights. Others feared the terrible rage of [President] Lyndon Johnson who brooked no opposition (certainly not from black Martin Luther King!) to his destructive policies. "Some members of King's own Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) board of directors opposed his role in the antiwar movement, partly because they had seen the way in which the liberal white allies of the movement had withdrawn financial support from the radicalized young people of SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee), who dared stand in solidarity with the Vietnamese opponents of America's intervention ... "In the face of all this, partly because of all this, King persisted, and the Riverside speech - delivered exactly one year before his assassination, was the most notable result of his decision. Immediately the drumbeat of harsh criticism was heightened. It came from many ... including such black stalwarts as Jackie Robinson, Roy Wilkins, Whitney Young, and Carl Rowan." [pp. 70-71] Rev. Dr. Harding also recounts how the allegedly 'liberal' Washington Post assailed Rev. Dr. King for daring to oppose the war. The newspaper editorial called his words "Bitter and damaging allegations and inferences that he did not and could not document." In the view of the Post's editors, "many who have listened to him with respect will never again accord him the same confidence. He has diminished his usefulness to his cause, to his country, and to his people." [Harding, p. 71] To his credit, Harding explains, King did not heed such criticisms, for he knew that they were on the side of war and death. Harding writes that King became increasingly radicalized, and emboldened to speak out against injustice; Riverside was a turning point: "(Who knew that night, April 4, that he had precisely one more year to live, that the bullet was closing in?) For King saw the larger context. He had already declared in other places that his "beloved country" was "engaged in a war that seeks to turn the clock of history back and perpetuate white colonialism." Underlying this backwardness, he said, was America's refusal to recognize that "the evils of capitalism are as real as the evils of militarism and evils of racism." [p. 101] This ain't the Martin Luther King we see on commercials, nor the ones we see in newspaper ads around the days of his birth or death. That Martin Luther King, anti-war critic, economic justice activist, advocate for the poor, fellow sufferer of the bombed and oppressed in Vietnam, a budding socialist (or at least anti-capitalist), had become, in Harding's words, 'the inconvenient hero.' May we remember who he really was. That King has almost vanished from our popular media, white-washed culture and history. Were it not for folks like Vincent Harding, he might have.

Discópolis 9555 - 1970(18) King Crimson - PMP restos - 21/11/16  

En 1970 King Crimson publicó dos discos. En mayo In The Wake of Poseidon, su segundo oficial. En España hubo que esperar tres años más para disfrutarlo. Angel Alvarez no le hizo serie dorada y yo con 17 años recién cumplidos me enfadé mucho. El elepé era un cambio sustancial respecto a los sesenta pero continuaba la linea de In The Court... Robert Fripp tuvo problemas con los vocalistas y salió del paso como pudo. Pero Mel Collins con los vientos estuvo sensacional. Esta noche estará en Madrid en la visita del grupo. Los hermanos Giles estuvieron muy bien y la principal innovación la trajo el pianista Keith Tippet orientado hacia la vanguardia clásica. El letrista Peter Sinfield hizo nuevamente versos oníricos de rima e imágenes endiabladas. Oímos casi entero el elepé; solo dejamos fuera la suite The Devils Triangle. Dejamos un tercio del programa para programar parte de lo que no cupo en la retransmisión en directo de la Gala de ayer en el Teatro Rialto ce los Pioneros madrileños del Pop. Oímos los tres temas instrumentales de Los Relámpagos que sonaron antes de las doce y un par de temas del gran y pionero Pepe Barranco, que sonarón después de las tres. Todavía nos sigue faltando la reunión final, la fiesta que convocó a todos los artistas.

The King under the Car Park  


King Richard III of England. Are the remains found under a car park in Leicester his?

In the city of Leicester, in central England, a group of archaeologists has been busy. They have been digging up a car park. Last week they announced that they had found a human skeleton. Of course, archaeologists often dig up human remains. Human bones can tell us interesting things about the past – what people ate, how tall they were, what diseases they suffered from, and how they died. The car park skeleton, however, is much more interesting. It is the skeleton of a man. He suffered from a deformed spine. He had a severe head injury, and part of an arrow was found in his back. The bones may be those of King Richard III of England.

Richard was born in 1452 and became king in 1483, after the death of his older brother Edward IV. The 15th century was a very troubled time in English history. There was almost constant civil war between powerful families who wanted to control the country. A few months after Edward’s death, his two sons – aged 12 and 9 – disappeared. Many people are convinced that Richard ordered their deaths so that neither of them could ever challenge his position as king.

Richard was king for only two years. In 1485, Henry Tudor led a rebellion against him. Richard’s army was defeated at the battle of Bosworth, and Richard himself was killed. (He was in fact the last English king to die in a battle. After him, English kings got other people to do the fighting and the dying for them!) His body was displayed in public for several days. Then it was taken and buried at Greyfriars Church in Leicester, which is quite close to the site of the battle. The victorious Henry Tudor became King Henry VII, and he and his children and grandchildren ruled England for the next 120 years.

Grefriars Church disappeared in about 1540, when the king seized all the monasteries in England and expelled the monks. Over the years, people forgot where Greyfriars Church had been. For a time there was a garden on the site; and later buildings; and then a car park in the busy centre of Leicester. No-one knew what had happened to the body of Richard III. Indeed, until recently, many historians believed that it had been dug up and thrown into a river at about the time that the monks left Greyfriars Church.

The archaeologists dug a number of trenches across the car park. They found the remains of the walls and the floor of Greyfriars Church. Then inside the church, they found the skeleton. They were very interested that the skeleton had a deformed spine, because we know that Richard had one shoulder higher than the other. They have carefully taken the skeleton from the ground, and have taken some samples of DNA from it. The next step is to compare this DNA with DNA from people who are descended from Richard III’s sister. (Richard himself had no children). These tests will take three months.
