Vaults: Robert Fripp

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, August 17, 2006

On this New Sounds program, dig into a "Vaults" show with Robert Fripp from 1991, upon the release of a 4-CD King Crimson boxed set. Fripp presents the condensed 77 second history of the band, touches upon synesthesia and how it pertains to “Red,” and wearily explains how making music and the music business are completely incompatible. Plus, tangential references to Nicholas Slominsky, Bernard Shaw, and what the critics said about Kate Bush back in 1991. All that and more.
