Fripp to play on Porcupine Tree's next CD

From Robert Fripp's diaryNovember 14, 2006

One great disappointment today: Tool are coming to the UK for 5 shows http://www.toolband.com/tour/ while I’m in Japan. Not only can I not go alone & cheer loudly, but I’ve been invited to sit in, on any Tool song of choice, and or Soundscape. This is the only band that makes me want to strap on my guitar & rock out.

I’m quite sad and disappointed too after reading those words, written by Mr. Fripp. Why? One sentence. What about Porcupine Tree!?

Fortunately, I count both bands as pals. Even more good fortune: I’m invited to play with both of them. And while the bad news is, I’ll be in Japan when Tool are in the UK, the good news is while in Japan, I’m there with Porcupine Tree.

My opinion is often invited on the merits of various artists & players. Conventionally I decline to offer an opinion, on the grounds that by talking of one artist, I am not talking of another. That is, the expression of enthusiasm for one artist may be construed as implying less enthusiasm for another. Mr. Crimsoid’s posting is a good example of this.

Porcupine Tree, whose new album I have been invited to play on (an offer which I have gratefully accepted), has a different musical sensibility to that of Tool. Obviously: both bands have their own character & individuality & both require an appropriate response. When I go to PT material, it’s with a more considered approach; with Tool, my response is primarily instinctive. Tool: strap on & rock out! Porcupine Tree: listen, absorb, respond.

This is commentary in broad strokes. One of the Porcupine Tree tracks I’ve been sent is more rockout! than absorb & respond! And you can’t go too far with Tool without giving thought to the structure.
The Making of Sgt Pepper

Summer Of Love, The Making of Sgt Pepper by George Martin

"Genesis Publications have produced 'Summer Of Love' as a lavishly illustrated, beautifully bound, extended-play format book, crammed with new information. On what's going to be the 40th anniversary, this is a wonderful celebration, and I've signed every copy." George Martin

This time, 40 years ago, The Beatles had made the historic decision to stop touring. Many were disappointed but the band had already begun to focus their energies in the recording studios at Abbey Road. With George at the helm, recording began that winter, on landmark tracks such as Strawberry Fields. Twelve months later, the world was to hear the result. The Beatles had written and recorded music that would forever change how a song was written, or an album was produced.

40 years on, Genesis is honoured to present Sir George Martin's celebration of those intensely creative times - a wonderful illustrated narrative, that takes the reader deep into the world of Abbey Road, circa 1966/67. The result of our efforts is a wonderful signed, limited edition, book boxed set, produced to celebrate the recording of the greatest album ever made...

There are only 2000 copies and they are priced until 2007 at £250


Queen lyrics and others banned in Iran

Dozens of literary masterpieces and international bestsellers have been banned in Iran in a dramatic rise in censorship that has plunged the country's publishing industry into crisis.

Companies that once specialised in popular fiction and other money-spinners are being restricted to academic texts under a cultural freeze instigated by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Several thousand new and previously published works have been blacklisted by Iran's culture and Islamic guidance ministry, which vets all books.

Newly banned books include Farsi translations of Tracy Chevalier's bestseller Girl With a Pearl Earring and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, the latter for upsetting clerics within Iran's tiny Christian community. Chevalier's novel has completed six print runs in Iran and earned hefty profits for its local publisher, Cheshme.

Another publishing house has been banned from selling a successful series of books featuring lyrics by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Doors, Black Sabbath, Queen and Guns n' Roses. Stores were told to remove the books or face closure. Permission was subsequently denied for the publisher to reprint.

The clampdown has been headed by the hardline Culture Minister, Mohammed Hossein Saffar Harandi, a former revolutionary guard and close ally of Ahmadinejad. It follows a relative thaw during the eight-year presidency of Ahmadinejad's reformist predecessor, Mohammed Khatami.

The rise in book censorship mirrors repression in other spheres. In September the reformist newspaper Shargh was closed after publishing a cartoon depicting United States President George Bush, disguised as a horse, debating with a donkey under a halo, widely seen as representing Ahmadinejad. The publishers launched a replacement newspaper, Rouzegar, but it was ordered to close after five days. - Guardian Unlimited © Guardian Newspapers Limited 2006
