I'm listening to the song Big Electric Cat right now. Such a fricking cool song.

His stuff with King Crimson is really awesome too- like Elephant Talk.

That is a good song - the Stick is crazy. You can see Belew cranking the feedback knob on his Memory Man.

I've only heard/own VROOOM, (KC) and it's fucking fantastic. Such incredible technical ability and experimentalism.

I first saw Adrian in a local Nashville band called Sweetheart. That was in '78 just before Frank Zappa saw him in the same band and called him up to join his band. They were doing Steely Dan, Beatles and David Bowie stuff....

Then I got to see him with KC in '81, '96 and 2000. He's a guitarist's guitarist !! Incredible musician and player. He get really goofy onstage.

He also played on some of my friends cd....called Fission Trip. It wallows in obscurity. here it is....





 


What happens when two versatile but virtually unknown Texas musicians blithely contact a respected alumnus of the legendary progressive rock band King Crimson and suggest recording an album together?

Well, if you’re Michael Clay and Ernie Myers (< My good buddies !) of the highly regarded but obscure Dallas art-rock band Hands, and the Crim in question is drummer/producer/composer Ian Wallace, the answer is...Fission Trip.

It worked so well that the wry Scotsman had KC bandmate and woodwind brujo Mel Collins fly in from England and persuaded fellow Nashvillean and current KC frontman/twang bar-pyrotechnician Adrian Belew to add some solo guitar twists and turns to the mix. Local session bassist John Billings, so fluid he was handpicked by Victor Wooten to hold down bass chores in Wooten’s estimable family band, rounded out the musicians.

Adrian Belew is my hero, maybe moreso than Robert Fripp. He certainly had more charisma anyway.

Also to note is his work with Talking Heads and Frank Zappa which is rad.
