      Released on CD as part of King Crimson’s 40th anniversary series, the Steven Wilson & Robert Fripp remixes of the 1980s trilogy of albums ‘Discipline’, ‘Beat’ and ‘Three Of A Perfect Pair’ have long been over-due on vinyl.

      Seven years after King Crimson had ‘ceased to exist’, King Crimson’s reinvention as a new quartet consisting of Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford, Adrian Belew and Tony Levin brought about a surprising new era, which delighted fans old and new.

      Stylistically very different from the King Crimson of the 1970s, this new line-up incorporated rock with electronica, funk, pure pop, modern avant-garde, and a complex variety of musical textures and influences.

      ‘Beat’ (1982) was released just eight months after the quartet’s recording of ‘Discipline’ and marked the first occasion where a KC line-up had remained intact for a two album stretch and the first album by the band to employ a separate producer – Rhett Davies. The album also charted upon release in the US and the UK with compositions such a ‘Waiting Man’, ‘Neal and Jack and Me’ and ‘Heartbeat’ becoming firm favourites with fans and concert goers.

      King Crimson’s 1980s studio trilogy is now celebrated as a classic period, the intricacies of the playing and details in the compositional style became a key influence on sub-genres such as math rock.
