The ProjeKcts

The ProjeKcts were/are devised as 'research units' to find possible futures for the fuller Crimson line-up. This box comprises the four live discs and kicks off with Jazz Café (KC have an amazing ability to play the most unlikely places). Head banging improv of the first track (all of which have numerate titles eg. "4 i ii") sees Fripp in inspired frenzy mode. The fifth though recalls a tranquility similar to the better tuneful soundscapes and the First Day period with David Sylvian. ProjeKct 2's mania has Adrian Belew trying out drums whilst Fripp and Gunn handle fretwork. The final here is a warts and all account of the battle between band and photographer (Fripp hates being photographed on stage - unless invited). Band wins thus making a 3-4 minute piece eleven! "West Coast" is also invigorating; if you liked Fripp and Mastelotto's "Sabre Dance" from DGM's overview Sometimes God Hides, chances are you'll love this as it expands upon the zonked out dance and trippy Frippy grooves and scapes respectively. Aided by Gunn and Tony Levin, this is almost the line-up that now makes up the actual KC.

The recently lost Martian landing vehicles were not destroyed. They were captured by aliens and converted into nuclear powered all-terrain hot rods, and pitted against each other in races across the Martian landscape. This music is the soundtrack to those races. It is razor sharp industrial electric jazz for the 21st century. Challenging and fascinating listening. (The easily traumatized should shop elsewhere.) See you at the races!
