Yep. The same lineup as in the picture. Sadly, they've lost Bill Reiflin to cancer a while back.

It wasn't a metaphor if you've seen the movie, but that's not really my point.
I posted it to reference how the movie maker had stolen Crimson's "Larks' Tongues" for their soundtrack, and how that weirdly ran parallel to the jokes about Pube Rock.

Of course, they might've been referring to this, which would absolutely be considered Pube Rock

   For a complete punishment treatment, I just started playing the entire album.

The comments on the YouTube page Melody Lark's Tongues In Aspic Pt II — no doubt made by hard core fans — are pretty funny.  Especially the way they take the mickey out of Robert Fripp.

Since he mentioned Pink Fairies I'm sure you're right. Not sure about twitch etc. Maybe Twink?

Oh Lord.  I could take a stab at this and ruin what is left of my already tattered reputation.

pube is short for pubic hairs and refers to young adolescents.

twitch implies high energy, erratic movement.

British strikes me as relatively straightforward.

How am I doing?

Incidentally, those of us who live in the 'colonies' still hold a deep fondness and respect for the British sense of humour.   Can you imagine an American artist of any stature saying something similar?  The American artist would have been cancelled if not crucified.

This was my favourite paragraph from the interview:



How do you feel about the so-called "heavy" bands in England?

There's only one: Robin Trower. And he's amazing. Robin Trower, I think, for the moment is the only thing that is really doing it for me in terms of working bands. Amazing. He plays with spirit; he's made a very real connection with the spirit of music. The press in England have been slagging him off, saying that he sounds like Hendrix, and I can't really see it. I could only see having to compare him with Hendrix because there's not really another category you can put him in. He's not rock and roll, he's not blues, he's not "English Twitch Pube" Rock, so they say, "oh, he sounds like Hendrix" and put him down for this. This is not important, because it doesn't really matter what form of music you use anyway as long as you make that connection with the spirit of music, which Robin does. And with the new drummer, Billy Norton, it's really quite amazing. I went to see them three weeks ago. It really took me off.

Thanks black321.  For one, I am very happy that Robert Fripp came back with numerous incarnations of KC.     

Happy to read that Fripp enjoyed the Beatles.  I recall Steven Wilson stating he did not really like the Beatles in an interview yet I can think of 2 Porcupine Tree albums that have mid-60s Beatles all over them.

Concerts in the 1970s.   I enjoyed the big stadium concerts though much of the time it was through the lense of an absolutely fascinated pop anthropologist.  At one point, I recognized that I was enjoying the concerts because the hashish was rounding off all the rough edges.  Many in the audience were such disrespectful ass-holes.    I know, I know.  Canadians as ass-holes, who would have thunk it?

Early King Crimson.   Went to a concert in Ottawa in the early 1970s where Fripp and the band were  'shredding wallpaper'.  I was not familiar with the music.  I readily recognized how incredibly tight the band was but had difficulty getting into it due to the lack of familiarity.  Made a note to one day correct that situation.

Well, fast forward almost 5 decades later and recently, I bought the Lark's Tonque in Aspic and Red albums (as CDs).   Not good for crunching numbers and writing —hehe— but I do like many of the songs.  Look forward to some longer road trips over the summer to play it.   I have one buddy here in town who I can share this stuff with but otherwise it is hard to share.    He is a pretty decent jazz, folk, rock, world music guitarist BTW.   He used to live in the Hare Krishna community not too far down the road.

Interesting story from the mi-70s on Fripp's retirement.

Fripp's King Crimson brought a new meaning to the word "tight". For a short time the band represented a pinnacle of British rock achievement. Since then Robert Fripp has been through several bands, most looser than the first. Now Fripp's had enough. He's provisionally playing a London date in June, but he's had enough. Where will the quiet genius go? 

Why have you finally disbanded Crimson after all these years?

Well, there are three reasons: The first one represents a change in the world: the second reason was that the education I was receiving as a young man, which I considered to be the best, was no longer the best. I wasn't learning what I needed to. And the third reason, the energies involved in the music were no longer appropriate to my way of living.
