21st Century Schizoid Band

Posted Friday, September 19, 2014 - 3:35pm by Gabriel Riccio

King Crimson have a returned with a new lineup, and they played their first shows last week, with a heavy focus on material from the 1970s. This is surprising, as the post-1980 incarnations of KC only ever performed four songs from the ‘70s - ‘21st Century Schizoid Man’, 'The Talking Drum', ‘Larks Tongues in Aspic, Part II’, and ‘Red’, all of which are also being performed on this new tour, alongside seven other songs from the era. Since the band has finally decided that it is time to look backwards in a more traditional manner, I thought it would be fitting to devote a post to discussing the more unusual ways in which the band preferred to look backwards over the past two decades.
