Day fourteen of the Prog Advent Calendar. We've been celebrating December by drawing on the genre's rich association with festive music, bringing you a proggy treat each day.
Today King Crimson take centre stage with a unique take on Silent Night. Originally recorded by Robert Fripp in 1979 using his Frippertronics, the song was given away as a flexi disc on Praxis magazine. In 2016 curent Crimson vocalist Jakko Jakszyk added a new vocal and the song was released on the band's DGM You Tube channel.
King Crimson celebrate their 50th Anniversary next year with a series of live dates around the world, including three nights at London's Royal Albert Hall.
So enjoy. And remember, this isn’t a “best of” list. We're not adhering to any numerical order. These are just 25 great seasonal songs for you to enjoy. It’s as simple as that. Season's greetings…
