    Yes, Starless (and bible black) by King Crimson. They played it live during that period. Hope it was recorded!

    This is indeed very good news. I just hope they do not decide to do it so thoroughly that it will be postponed as long as the DVD.

    Nah, scrap that. The DVD was well worth the wait and we wouldn't want anything slapdash now would we?

    Greetings,

    Thomas

    nope, it's only Starless. No bible black. The one from the album "Red".

    Thanks supernaut. I always mix up the song title "Starless" with their record title "Starless and Bible Black". Also, the line "starless and bible black" is included in the song "Starless".

    Greets,

    They didn't play Starless live in the TM-period. They played it three times on the autumn tour of 1996, and one of those were recorded (Veita, Trondheim)

    Starless was played four times:

    1996-09-26 Namsos
    1996-09-30 Trondheim
    1996-10-02 Sogndal
    1997-03-22 Trondheim

    The Trondheim show 1996-09-30 is believed to be partially recorded but Starless is probably not included on the incomplete recording. I don't have the incomplete version, either. If anyone has then he can post more details about it, please!

    So I was talking out of my neck again, as the Dutch expression goes. Thanks for clearing this up, guys.

    as far as i know, Starless originated in Starless and Bible Black improvs anyway, so...

    Thanks for making it even more difficult & for reminding me of those wonderful Crimson improvs! Now I will have to dig out my "Great Deceiver" box set & play all the 'blows' (as Fripp calls the jams) just for the hell of it. What an ordeal!

    Greetings,

    Hey folks. Wayward son, Seattle Psychonut, here. Stuck on the other side of the pond. Would have loved to have seen some of the recent shows. LOVE the lists! They must have been great shows. I am currently holed up in the hospital. Had some work done on my leg. I am a left leg below knee amputee ande had to have some "touch-ups" done. Prognosis is good.

    Gotta say. I love Starless. I am a huge fan of live recordings but my favorite Starless is the version on Red. Also one of my favorite studio recordings. Totally defined by Bill Bruford's outstanding drum work. One More Red Nightmare is another great example from that. Sad news to relay, Bill Bruford has "oficialy retired" from active work.

    Would love to hear a great version from MP. I do have a live version of Starless. Don't know date or location though I can dig it up when I get home. (Alex, Anders et al. MP Live Show Companion?)Anyway, MP is SOOOO good at covering tracks yet still owning them. One More Saturday Night. Heaven and Hell. And possibly the heaviest Motorpsycho track ever (and that's saying something) Up Our Sleeves. Love Humble Pie.

    Some great covers for MP

    As Safe as Yesterday - Humble Pie
    it's time to bite the bullet and just play it That's it for the Other One - Grateful Dead.
    So many more.

    Speaking of King Crimson, have you guys heard the new remastered versions of ITCOTKC and Red? Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and Fripp have cooperated and remastered the albums from the original master tapes. Even made a 5.1 version. Well worth a listen!

    @ Seattle Psychonaut

    It is great to hear that you have a Motorpsycho recording of "Starless" (because I don't have). If you want to share it then feel encouraged to do so!

    All the best for your health!!!

    There's been for ages live MP version of Starless here on this very website: Click here! Crappy sound, but the only MP version I have heard.

    When it comes to Crimson live vs studio of Starless, I gotta say the USA live version beats the crap out of the Red studio version. One reason only: on USA, the super tacky saxophone is omitted!

    I would love to hear a MP version in good quality - live or studio!

    Good to hear some signs of life from you, Seattle Psychonaut. Hope everything went well and that your leg will heal up all right. It would be great to hear the starless cover, if you have a recording better than the one on this website.

    Also, btw. When we hung out in Tacoma, when I played the java jive with my old band, you talked about making me a grateful dead sampler. When you're feeling up to it, drop me a mail, and I can maybe hook you up with something else in return.

    Cheers,
    Jan Tore

    In an old interview from either Rock Furore or Beat (norwegian music magazines) Bent said that the had a 15 min long version of watersound. I have dreamed about that this version would be released and i really hope that this "dream" will come true

    That would've been great, but I'm afraid you're mixing up Watersound with Giftland. I guess this must be the interview you're talking about, vorsla.

    great news,

    did you noticed that the last release from rune grammofon was RCD 2099 - Stian Westerhus: Pitch Black Star Spangled and the next announced so far is RCD 2101 - Phonophani: Kreken ... so RCD 2100 is missing maybe timothy's monster will be RCD 2100...

    This is SOOO cool!. Music nerds like me love this stuff. Especially with Motorpsycho. Their EP's are often as good and better than some of the standard releases. This set should be great.

    And sorry, the Starless version I have is the same one as on the link.

    Finally, I would be happy to put together a Grateful Dead mix. I will get together with you on it.

    I'm out of the hospital, home and getting better. Rock on all. I'll be in the forums more later.

    Peace,
    Seattle Psychonaut

    "There will be news coming on this soon....the archive-digging is still taking place, which is why nothing has been announced yet.

    cheers,

    Archive and 4 CDs and Timmy as title.... so might it be the Oya live version peppered up with old tapes from around 93 and 94?

    That would be cool, but i doubt that considering that they aim towards releasing it before the Øya Gig.

    By the way...i wonder if the Øya Crew is considering streaming this year also, as they did back in 2006?! In that case we're in for a real treat!

    Here's the last tweet from Stickfrau:

    is writing liner notes, proofreading other liner notes and trying to remember what happened 15 years ago.

    stickfrau needs our help

    From: Stickman Records <stickman@stickman-records.de>
    Date: 2010/7/2
    Subject: [g35] need discography help!
    To: g35@totem.fix.no

    Hi everybody,

    As some/most of you probably know, we're in the middle of compiling the booklet for the new-and-improved Timothy's Monster boxset. It's going to contain a ton of information.

    Our problem: the band can't find their original Sony archive copy, we never had one, and Sony only has Stickman stock on hand (?), so nobody can tell us the original catalog number on the cover. If any of you have this record in your collection, can you let me know this number? I found the following on the oh-so-reliable Interwebz, but can't confirm it: 489.738.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    Jeannette
