28 February 1980
In which the League of Gentlemen try their own brand of slow music and crash slo-mo style into the theme from Peter Gunn on mogodon. Quite what dancers would have made of this smoocher we can only guess at.
What we get here is a scorching slice of anguished guitar that seems to want to tear itself out of the self-imposed lumbering tempo. Fripp’s solo recalls some of that snaking malevolence he conjured up in improvisations such as Providence from King Crimson’s Red. Unsettling and exciting all at the same time.
Interesting also to hear the thrakking slabs of organ and guitar toward the end of the piece.
