KC8: a preview

Filed under: Music — Tom @ 10:12 pm

Those of you who, like me, wondered just what was in store with the addition of amazing drummer Gavin Harrison to King Crimson’s already interesting line up (this being number 8,) what with current drummer Pat Mastelotto* still occupying his drum stool, well, we’ve finally been given a very cool glimpse courtesy one of the free “Stormy Monday Selections” this week. “Bababoomboom” appears to be an advanced (!) version of Thrak‘s drum suite, “B’Boom,” which is based around drum exercises that Harrison had given to then-drummer Bill Bruford for him and Mastelotto to mess around with. Dare I say it . . . I think Harrison and Mastelotto take it to new heights here. Gavin is one hell of a drummer. That’s saying a lot coming from this huge Bruford fan.

*Even after fourteen years, I’m still having to check the spelling on Pat’s last name.
