March 12. 2014 rock and popular music
It goes on number 8( chart) for a first album it was good. They didn’t sell a lot of albums
in underground. Sound of painting, trying to concept interspace travel. The
transformation of the guitar playing different lines and different textures. Progressive
Rock music at this point coming out of country and rnb music. The blues or rnb
influenced it. It was minimized and it was influenced by jazz or classical.
the photo album a face in the mirror( more importantly) doesn’t seem like
Crimson anymore. It doesn’t function that way anymore. Its no the traditional
picture of the pictures of the bands. No mention of the album title.
Why did the band do this? Since tomorrow never knows. Rock is art; it’s a work
of art. It reflects the content of bands piece of art of what’s actually inside.
Transformation of a lot of rock artists
Not of a lot screams in the concerts.
This band never ever played on the am radio. FM was the type of radio that
played anything. Listen to the flow, top 40 am type. Played it over and over again.
They are not told what to play.
Woodstock august 69( half a million people showed up) it was a disaster. Not a lot
of food, there wasn’t washroom facilities. Woodstock just kept selling and selling.
He pointed out that rock and roll had a massive audience. Big money took over
rock and roll music. Big money is involved then capitalist is involved. .what does
that cover express? Terrible, paranoid, crazy, chaois.
Things are out of csttrol.
King crimson: “21 century schizoid man”
the lyrics are just the way the cover looks like.
Its about alienation. It’s a concept record label.
Sax solo double trapped
Jazz solo no back beat
Different more variety (essential piece of music)
Voice heavily filtered, embracive like the lyricist, guitar and album cover
Nothing beats like the first album, but the entire album is similar.
Why do you like this piece of music? Its unpredictable. They dance along to the
music. A lot of different sections, the tamber was interesting. Alienation is
There is a sense of audience, worship technical varosity
What kind of audience? Mostly male… why? Loud, aggressiveness, power
1972: Floyd came on the billboard( massively successful! They played at arenas.
18 minutes long. It was a regular thing played on the radios.
Two albums: terrible record
We start seeing epic fantasy.
Member of the band keith only wrote songs. But didn’t play at all.
Love me do, like love song but like fire. Still addressing the main theme of pop
music. Science fiction, epic fantasy. 1.Main stream lyrics were removed
2.Literature was considered as a great art. Not for entertainment but more than
just that. Removing them from the mainstream art.
