Ex King Crimson & Van der Graaf Generator men launch new album News

Postby ConnyOlivetti » 22 Mar 2018, 13:47

"Former King Crimson member David Cross and ex Van der Graaf Generator man David Jackson team up for new album Another Day
Former King Crimson member David Cross and Van der Graaf Generator ex David Jackson have collaborated on a new album.

It’s titled Another Day and is out now via Cherry Red Records. It was produced by Jake Jackson and features Mick Paul on bass and Craig Blundell on drums.

Cross says: “From the first notes we ever played together, David Jackson and I realised that we were driving in the same direction, free to play anything from fierce avant-garde cadenzas to haunting melodies and rocking riffs.

“Another Day is the culmination of our ambition to date and has been realised as a quartet album through extraordinary instinctive performances from our collaborators, Mick Paul and Craig Blundell.

“The icing on the cake was the incisive, original vision which emerged in the mixing stage from our producer Jake Jackson. I love it.”

Jackson adds: “I am thrilled and very proud of this album with David Cross. It’s the best thing I’ve done in many years!

“We met at a festival in Italy in 2010 and emergency improvised our way into a special kind of exciting harmony – and friendship too. Enjoying the space between two soloists, we soon discovered new ways of writing and arranging.

“Add in our legendary rhythm section of Mick Paul and Craig Blundell and I can guarantee you haven’t heard anything quite like this album before!”

The "taster" is too nervous sampling excerpts to appreciate fully.

But this one complete track shows they both still got their chops - I really like it!

That is great!
Saw David Cross perform with Stick Men and he still is having a great touch. Very nice guy too!
Will see him next year playing this album live, it'll be a highlight for sure.

Cross will be playing on Cruise To The Edge in February 2019 in Florida next year- I would be very surprised if he didn't tack on a few more gigs before or after that.

I’d love to go on Cruise To The Edge.

It sounds a lot of fun.

Jeez, what the fuck is that hideously amateurish album cover? Image

The track postd above sounds pretty decent. I'll check it out.

It looks like something you’d find in the $2 and under bin at a used book store. These guys deserve a better cover.
