The frustrations of preparing what became KCCC13 (released in 2000) were perhaps a reflection of the tensions that emerged during the sessions themselves and which would become the epitaph of the Double Trio enterprise. Following these costly and ultimately unproductive dates, the whole FraKctalisation of King Crimson began in November with the recording of Space Groove by ProjeKct Two (Gunn, Belew and Fripp) and then in December 1997, ProjeKct One – Gunn, Fripp, Levin and making his last appearance under the Crimson banner, Bill Bruford.
Part of the fun with a release like this is spotting for the themes and motifs that would later crop up in the fraKctals and Double Duo line-ups. For example, Ragin’ Drones would eventually be integrated into Frying Pan, Seizure would occupy many improvisations by P3 and P3 as well as the springboard for several excursions by the Double Duo on the Heavy ConstruKction tour, whilst the snaking theme Robert plays in “Too Many Eee’s” had to wait until Level Five until it found its proper home.
Please note that this album was first released as KCCC13. It has been out of print for some time and there are no plans to reissue it on CD. The full artwork that accompanied the original release will be made available at a later stage.
