King Crimson's Most Fully Realized Audio and Visual Statement To Date!
Radical Action to Unseat the Hold of Monkey Mind is a comprehensive and immersive account of the 2015 live incarnation of the ever evolving entity that is the mighty King Crimson. It has been stated many times that King Crimson is not so much a band as it is "a way of doing things." Less frequently stated but equally true, is the fact that the band inevitably seeks different ways of doing things.
Now, with the release of Radical Action to Unseat the Hold of Monkey Mind comes the most fully realized audio and visual statement from this band to date, running to three themed CDs and a Blu-Ray disc offering the filmed content along with an audio-only option in lossless high resolution stereo and surround sound.
The expansive set includes at least one performance of every song/piece of music played by King Crimson in 2015, some pieces originally composed in 1969 the year of the band's inception, others composed/initially performed at a variety of points since, some new to the tour, all arranged for this specific line-up.
• Three CDs - presented as individually themed ‘virtual studio albums' with no audible audience - featuring a representative example of every song/piece performed by King Crimson on its 2015 tours of the UK, Canada and Japan.
• Blu-Ray disc featuring a complete concert performance in high resolution
stereo and 5.1 surround audio, complete with ‘picture off' mode allowing the music to be heard independently in pristine, lossless audio. (24/48khz as per original recordings)
• 20 page booklet
• Mini-vinyl style gatefold sleeves housed in outer slipcase packaging
