King Crimson, Epitaph (video and lyrics)

@ F_idάvi

Υπάρχει όμως και ένα περισσότερο χαρακτηριστικό κομμάτι τους. Και το οποίο όσες 10ετίες και να έχει στην πλάτη του αντέχει και για περισσότερες. ;-)



The wall on which the prophets wrote
Is cracking at the seams.
Upon the instruments of death
The sunlight brightly gleams.
When every man is torn apart
With nightmares and with dreams,
Will no one lay the laurel wreath
As silence drowns the screams.

Between the iron gates of fate,
The seeds of time were sown,
And watered by the deeds of those
Who know and who are known;
Knowledge is a deadly friend
When no one sets the rules.
The fate of all mankind I see
Is in the hands of fools.

Confusion will be my epitaph.
As I crawl a cracked and broken path
If we make it we can all sit back
And laugh.
But I fear tomorrow Ill be crying,
Yes I fear tomorrow Ill be crying.

Αυτό που αποκαλούμε και priceless.

Μέσα από στράτα απόμονη κι απόσκια
Με αγγέλους του ʼδη μόνο στοιχειωμένη
Που κει θεά μ' όνομα νύχτα βασιλεύει
Κάτω στα μέρη αυτά έχω φτάσει, τώρα...

Amon Duul
Animals / Eric Burdon
Beatles
Cream
Genesis
King Crimson
Mike Oldfield
Moody Blues
Pink Floyd / Roger Waters




Επιτέλους, κάποιος  κατατάσσει τους Genesis στη θέση που τους αξίζει - εκεί, μαζί με τους μεγάλους. Έχω την εντύπωση ότι τα 'βλακόμετρα' του RS δεν συμπεριλαμβάνουν ούτε ένα από τα αριστουργηματικά άλμπουμ τους (με τη δική μου σειρά προτίμησης: Foxtrot, Selling England by the Pound, The Lamp lies down on Broadway, A Trick of the Tail) στα 500 καλύτερα όλων των εποχών.

King Crimson are a musical group founded by guitarist Robert Fripp and drummer Michael Giles in 1969. They have typically been categorised as progressive rock, although they incorporate diverse influences ranging from jazz, classical and experimental music to psychedelic, New Wave, hard rock, gamelan and folk music. King Crimson have garnered little radio or music video airplay, but gained a large cult following. Their debut album, In the Court of the Crimson King, is widely regarded as a landmark in progressive rock. Their later excursions into even more unconventional territory have been influential on many contemporary musical artists.

In the late-1960s, the band were influential in popularising a previously unexplored mellotron rock style. Throughout the early-1970s, King Crimson's membership fluctuated as the band explored elements of jazz and funk. The band developed an improvisational sound influenced by hard rock and became a more stable unit in the mid-1970s, before their initial break up in 1974. The band re-formed in 1981 for three years, influenced by new wave and gamelan music, before breaking up again for around a decade. Following their 1994 reunion, King Crimson blended aspects of their 1980s and 1970s sound, which has continued into the 21st century.

King Crimson's membership has fluctuated considerably throughout their existence, with eighteen musicians and two lyricists passing through the ranks as full band members. Robert Fripp, the only constant member of King Crimson, has arranged several disparate line-ups of the band, and he has stated that he does not necessarily consider himself the band's leader. He describes King Crimson as "a way of doing things", and notes that he never originally intended to be seen as the head of the group.

Στην αρχή νόμιζα ότι ήταν κάποιο τραγούδι των Nirvana, μια και η μελωδία μου ήταν πολύ γνώριμη. Πρέπει να ομολογήσω όμως πως είναι πολλά, πάρα πολλά, αυτά που αγνοούμε... Και από το video clip μεγάλη εντύπωση μου έκανε αυτό!
