King Crimson’s concert The Noise (Live in Fréjus - 1982) premieres today, Friday 26th, at 4.30pm CET / 9.30am ET!
The reformed King Crimson of 1981 emerged as a completely distinct entity from its late '60s/early '70s incarnation. Notably, Adrian Belew (vocals/guitar) and Tony Levin (bass) joined the ranks alongside previous members Bill Bruford (drums) and the leader/founder Robert Fripp (guitar). While the band retained its musical unpredictability, their fresh sound and approach deviated significantly from their original progressive direction. With two albums released under this new lineup (1981's Discipline and Beat), King Crimson embarked on a tour that led to the creation of their first home video, 'The Noise: Live at Fréjus.' Initially recorded in August of '82 at the Arena in France, this video remained largely unseen until its reissue by DGM in 1997. However, it serves as an exceptional visual testament to the '80s-era King Crimson. Now available both as a full concert and as individual clips exclusively on the official King Crimson YouTube channel.
