DGM Live

Bismark Theatre

In between numbers Adrian thanks punters in Chicago not smoking, a reminder of a time when musicians and singers especially, had to be subjected to a wall toxic fog drifting towards their eyes, nose and throats as they performed. Belew’s voice is especially good here on Dinosaur and One Time.

For all you connoisseurs of the Clam Crimsonique there’s a rather tasty item served up in the middle section of Red as Adrian, having come in late on his cue, is delightfully out of sync with Levin. As you’d expect, they are quick to recover and click into place for the second time around. What’s interesting about all this, however, is the way the remainder of the track is somehow galvanised by the mistake and goes up another notch in terms of its intensity.

‘I do remember one thing,” says Belew after the riotous introduction to Indiscipline. “It’s been 11 years, 6 months, 17 days, 4 hours and 14 minutes since we last played Chicago. What a joyful occasion to be back,” he beams. There’s another smile-inducing moment in the second verse. Quicker than you can say ‘Robert’s cheesy organ,’ the sedentary guitarist’s between-line embellishments add to the air of levity. The Crims are in town and having fun.
