I happen to sing and play keyboards for a King Crimson tribute band here in Los Angeles called The Great Deceivers.  We primarily perform selections from the Wetton-era Crimson.  We don't play out that often because all of the guys are in other bands as well.  The last time we played out, we performed the following selections:

The Talking Drum

Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, Part II

The Great Deceiver

Lament

Red

Exiles

Dance Of Maya (Mahavishnu Orchestra)

Starless

21st Century Schizoid Man

We are now learning Cat Food, One More Red Nightmare, Sailor's Tale and Vroom Vroom to add in for our next show.  If you're in the area, please check us out.  More info at: http://www.myspace.com/tgdkingcrimson

I think one of my most favorite JW moments with Crimson is when he tackled Cat Food, an excellent live version which you can hear on the Great Deceiver boxset.

Missed this one first time around but my choices are not likely to create a stir either:

Starless
Book of Saturday
The Nightwatch
Easy Money
The Great Deceiver
Lament

I love One More Red Nightmare,the opening to that is just sinister(pun intended sorta) and there is something about those notes,those flatted 5ths that does it for me everytime. K.C. made all types of music,but the scary stuff is what I love most.

I have been totally hooked watching Lost on dvd this past April and I was thinking that OMRN would make a great song to listen to when the plane is getting ready to crash-kinda sick but can you imagine what that would be like with the tv sound off and that song just blasting on both sides of the set?

I now have to wait for Season 5 to become dvd. But, anyway,if Johan is singing with anyone,esp. Crimson,then those are my faves, I have so many it's just silly.

My favorite era of K.C. is 1973--1974 for sure.

There is no question that "RED" is a masterpiece and while not taking anything away from "Starless and Bible Black" I think that RED as an entity has a certain mood and flow that is phenomenal. I feel same way about YES - "Fragile" While "The YES Album" is great, there is something about "Fragile" as a whole that is awesome.

If the "Red" lineup could ever come together again to play live, that could be magic!

ASIA debut, of course, same thing -- a masterpiece, great songs/sound/mood/production. The music never sounds dated and can be listened to ad-infinitum without tiring of it.
