King Crimson are the encapsulation of the progressive-rock genre. Almost everyone has been here. Members of Yes, ELP, and Peter Gabriel s band have passed through. Robert Fripp, founder and only consistent member of the band even mixed and performed on Peter Gabriel’s second album.
This track comes from the album Red, released in 1974 and was considered a masterwork. A sad story of lament, regret, guilt and death.
Lifetimes spent on the streets of a city
Make us the people we are
Switchblade stings in one tenth of a moment
Better get back to the car
