Enjoy!!!

It’s a smoking version too! Fripps Solo is really really good on this one. My fave version of this song by this band is on the radical action release, but this one is a real scorcher

Anyone knows what jakko says at the end of this indiscipline?

i think he did that one in Boston too. on seeing them, i have to say i was skeptical about moonchild not being a bore but i think it's one of the better soft songs they play like islands or the “first” section of lizard. fripp does cool background stuff throughout, he's more present than on the studio track

European 2018 dates are out - Rieflin is listed as being back in for the tour.

Two tiers of packages now - royal for 295 euros and courtier for 165 euros. So the overall price is lower than the US four but there’s 2 tiers and more tickets through their VIP program than before so that’s cool. Guess both packages get a special 4 CD box set.....will be curious to see what’s in that.

Way better than the one-eyed radical action thing. Never liked that.

Last night of the Radical Action tour last night.  Good show as always, but the mix was really frustrating.  For the first time the drums were just way too much and were drowning everything out.  Stacey specifically was burying everyone. When he was on keys it was far more manageable.

 

Pretty standard setlist for this leg of the tour.  Few stray thoughts

 

-Jakko singing on Indiscipline still does not work for me on any level.  The two people I went with agreed, they both looked at me like "What is this nonsense?"

-Fripp didn't seem to play a whole lot.  I didn't remember Jakko playing so much lead guitar

-Moonchild finally worked for me.  Tony's solo on the upright bass was amazing.

-Best rendition of 21st Century from this line-up.  Super erratic.  Fripp's and Jakko soloed at the same time and made for some joyous chaos.  Mel and Tony then soloed together followed by Gavin.  This being the third time I've seen this group I was worried Gavin would do the same shtick, but he mixed it up with a lot of electronic drums.

-Pat is the most fun to watch.

First time for me last night.....that was a thrill! Went by myself while the lady friend hung at a nearby bar, sat about ten rows back directly in front of Fripp, so had a great view of him all night.

Mix from where I sat was pretty good overall - some Fripp guitar and Tony bass would get a little drowned out when everyone was thrashing but that was infrequent so not problematic at all.

Well behaved crowd - only saw one guy get kicked out in the middle of schizoid sitting by me as he tried to film. Security definitely held to the rules and we were luckily only blessed with one finger wag to the crowd from Fripp to start the second set. Some clown screamed “can I take a picture yet?” Before schizoid bad got ssshhhhdddd by the crowd and a shake od the head from Jakko.

As for the performance itself, great all around music performed by exceptional musicians. I really really love fallen angel so glad to get that one and they played it so brilliantly it triggered the first of many spontaneous standing ovations when it ended.

Fripp: the legend himself, what more can be said? He actually played tons of guitar, just a lot of it in the support role. That said, you got ripping solos from him on prince Rupert’s, schizoid, indiscipline, easy money, and larks 1, so not like he wasn’t taking a ton of leads. He was big into the strummy, banjo-type solos - that’s the style he used on his indiscipline and larks 1 solos. His searing, laser beam tone leads on schizoid, moonchild, prince Rupert’s, and easy money made this punter smile wide. Court was the only song where he played only keys, while cirkus he mostly played keys with a few small guitar bits, otherwise he was playing guitar all over the place on all the songs, ranging from a support role to searing leads.


Schizoid: amazing version! Echo what was said above - Fripp and Jakko did an extended solo where they were both wailing away at once with Jeremy supporting - you could hear a pin drop in the place when everyone dropped out and Fripp and Jakko both continued soloing. On Gavin’s solo, he was definitely having fun using the electronic percussion and at one point was soloing with one of his legs up on the drums to muffle them. Cool stuff - would be delighted if they release this version as the nightly tickle.

Drums: 3 drummers was worth it! The baton passing was amazing and each guy was oh so different in how they played - would say that prolly half the show Jeremy was on keys, which was quite lovely. They were having a riot of a time on the indiscipline intro.

New stuff: just the drum trios and radical 1, meltdown, and radical 2. The new, longer version of radical 1 is amazing - cool what they’ve done with twisting the rhythm and riffs and making it a longer tune, definitely had me smiling.

Bottom line: see this if you can next year! They’re playing top notch with an amazing repertoire. If you can, see them up close as it’s cool to see all the nods and smiles up there. Fripp was pretty much all smiles all night and ripped it up!

Oh and other fun tidbits about the Milwaukee show....

Bumped into Gavin walking around near the venue about 2 hours before showtime. Just wished him well and went on my way, nice guy.

Bill Rieflin also was in the building - sitting close on Fripps side, I was right by the stage door that David Singleton and the crew would come in and out of, so saw pretty much everyone on the crew. About 2 mins before showtime, a dude walked out that door in a suit with a scarf and a large hat on and I recognized it as Bill - gave him a nod and a wave and got a wink back, nothing more as didn’t want to cause a fuss. He came back to go backstage at intermission too.....so not sure what it is that kept him off the tour, but he was in the building and watched the show.

He only was at the Austin shows and last night as far as I could read on the DGM website. I was just confused when I saw him and had to do a double take as I knew he wasn’t participating in this leg of the tour.
