Comments:I salute you for your work Mr. Seinfield, i been a truly
fan of King Crimson since the first time i listened to it.
Epitaph and Moonchild still captivate me every time i listen to it because of the words on it. Your lyrics are a precious gift for a music lover and player like me!

There's some artists that cannot be imitated or copied by anyone, you're a member of that club.

Comments:I would like to share a story with you..

When I was 9 years old and living on a sail boat with my mother father and sister, I used to have reoccurring nightmares from listening to the crimson king. The nightmare back in those days, and due because I was only 9 years old, were simple but frightening. The dream was that covered myself with my bed sheet in my bedroom while I could hear a Fox slowly walking around in my bedroom with a heavy breathing sound searching for me.

I have not had that dream in over 10 years, nor have I even heard the music from the CK. I am 22 years old now, and for some reason remembered the tune from "I TALK TO THE WIND". I downloaded the song, and played it last night while I was about to go to sleep. Sure enough, I had a nightmare.. not the same as I did when I was 9 years old, this nightmare was much more complex and dark, but it had the same effect. I woke at 4am with sweat beads running down my face.

The power of music to revive memories and dreams long forgotten puts me in awe. I am so disappointed that music has turned into a frenzy of young girls in skirts and vehicles with 20 inch rims.

In any case, peace and love to all who remember.

Comments:When the black dog howls at my door you have no idea, as indeed you should not, that it is often most amazing glowful to read the charming, calm, quiet comments posted here regarding my early works and of course Jon's exploration and vast illustration of them. Thank you. Blessings, *PjS*

If I actually kept a diary. (i.e. apart from my lyrics) 2 weeks ago it might have said.

Recently returned from 3 days of happy madness in London. Thursday- I did a BBC2
interview for "I Love Xmas". A program to be shown on Xmas eve. I rambled for
more than an hour which should mean at least 3 minutes of my ho, ho waffle is
aired. The questions were wide ranging and well researched but I had to keep
remembering to include them in front of my answers. . . Q: So Peter who are the
'they' that said "There would be snow at Christmas and peace on earth? A: (2nd
take) - "Sometimes people wonder why the song IBIFC starts the way it does
with the lines...etc etc. and perhaps to find the reason you have to hear the last
line of the song, which I think people often miss, as the 60 piece orchestra and
30 piece choir reach a vast musical crescendo of hope for the future. And the line
is, "The Christmas we get we deserve...." as in, 'the government we get ..' and all
of those gray figures who again and again convince us to keep on dreaming while
their actions continually erode our innocence and grind down our amazement. . ."
Or words to that effect ... somewhere else I recall saying something about the
song was written in many layers and is actually all rather confusing. But, If you
look at it closely; Christmas is a very confusing Festival. There was much more.

Think I did OK. At least Amnesty get some dosh - Which is nice. & I get an unedited
copy of me at my oft noted, ahem, supercallmehalfamysticendlessrambalacious.
No time to be nervous...late, walked straight in and sat on the blue chair beneath
the 'tell us all' lights! You see, my best friend Nick visited, dragged and drove me
from my seaside womb (to break a mounting 21st Thyroid Man phobia!). To do the
above, appear at Sid's book signing and not the least see his new restaurant in
which I have, I am sure wisely, invested a few hard earned pounds of my pension.

The journey should have been a calm two and a half hourish drive. Hah! It was four
and a half hours of storm, rain, roaring monster trucks, jams and one lane///three
lane conesville hell. I have always been a very nervous passenger. You understand
now why the interview was in comparison relatively unstressed. One more thing.
Nick, in need of brunch, suggested that we stop briefly somewhere, as he put it.
'clean and cheerful', for a bite to eat. Which we did. MacDonalds are not famous for
their charitable deeds. So it was pleasing, as I prodded my food, to notice they, at
least it so appears, employ the sight-impaired to design & decorate their furniture.


On Friday - I signed hundreds of a new bio/book . . *In the Court Of King Crimson*
(+ albums, CD's, ...etc) with its author, Mr. Sid Smith, and four other distinguished
exish members of said infamous ensemble (plus a near as... P. Giles). We sat around
a small table, in a hot, claustrophobic nook of Helter Skelter's book shop.Though JW
since he arrived late, for he had been rehearsing, had to stand as he scribbled. No
chair for him! Nor as such for the many kind and patient souls who queued for our
all too brief attention. I say that but since I was a 'surprise' signer . . .although a
couple of people had copies of my old book ...hmm... very confusing? If smiles and
bright eyes speak louder than words, despite the discomfort, the shop was bathed
in a beaming uproar. To be sat at the table was a privilege. I am sure you could see,
despite my constant flow of bad jokes, the other chaps were also very happy and I
hope if you were there, and are reading this, you were as well. Yes its hard to tell
with Sid ;-) at least so he says in his diary. Now comes the curse of the follow up!
I apologise if I seemed to flee a bit rapidly.. I was rather overwhelmed, in need of
some air and ... well.. Phew.


Although I wouldn't tell Sid directly, since he is but an enormous Geordie Jongleur,
the book is actually rather good. There is even a photo of myself and dear Stephanie
on our wedding day, with whom plus others Sat'y night I ate, as you do, a fine curry.
The restaurant menu was eight pages long. The 'menus' in Sid's book are very much
longer. As I read its initial chapters I experienced a familiar thought. Namely, that
metaphorical or not, trousers with elastic waist bands are an excellent invention.


Ironically and sadly in passing I mention that George Harrison was often a patron
of 'Vijays', our chosen eaterie. - "May his curly slippers rest forever on some comfy
footstool in the shining, peaceful place which he was absolutely, beauteously sure,
would be his next, "its alright...", destination. Now he has heard the dark-hooded
conductor, lean on his scythe and murmur ,"THANK YOU MR. HARRISON, ER, GEORGE.
FAVORITE OF MINE." (apologies to Terry Pratchett) - What? OK. The restaurant
is in Willesden Lane on a corner 100 yds from Kilburn High Rd . .The food is from
Southern India. No tandori but magic Masala Dosas. Suggest booking which even
though we did, we still had the mild torture of watching others eating for1 hour.


During and in between all the above were chance meetings with friends old & new.
Fires rekindled, sins forgiven, dreams replenished, memories rewound, cars in wild
weather, callers cut off, Sum Dim Places visited, and the longest list of Fawlty
Flaws ever complied about a, so called, five star hotel. Including the shower that
was not, as I thought, off, but still running with liquid ice... catching my back and
as I leapt 3 foot, thrusting out the flailing hand, sprayed the whole 5* bathroom.
The mini bar full of lukewarm beer & yea no bottle opener. The air conditioning control,
with numerals, that having stretched on a chair to read, were Illegible. Leaving me to
guess whether in five minutes, I would be the occupant of a pink curtained sauna
or bit player in a cheap remake of Scott of the Antarctic. The list goes on, but I not.

This here epistle is a big thank you to many people and some in particular who in their
different ways, gave and took, to and from, knowingly and/or not, over 3 important
extraordinary days and nights. And finaly it is also my pleasure to sign off with the
hope that YOU receive er, somewhat more than "The Christmas That You Deserve." :-) .

Hasta La Futura,

Ancient Greece and a Pirate ship for the second. an eatern feel for the third. Except for the Bolaro's tale in which I used to feel I was in a black -n- white playing jazz in New york to the sadness of the insane clown of Big Top. And finally somehere remote in the late 19th century with the right girl for islands. I once painted a fiery comet set to Sailers Tail using of course Napthal Crimson.

Comments:Saw KC in Glasgow's Green's Playhouse when I was 14 and was only feet away from Mr Sinfield who was in box on the right of the circle operating lights etc. I love all the early stuff and it has survived the test of time. Lizard is probably my favourite album, with Cirkus my fav track. Is Stillusion, which I suspect is the re-release of the original 70's album on CD, readily available? I have not seen it in any Glasgow record shops.

All the best Peter

I lived there in the latter half of 1976 - lived in a house called "Stanny." Pretty posh. I was a waiter at the White Lion, too!

Anyway, I remain a fan and am glad to see you're still going strong in this time when magic is becoming so increasingly scarce. Carry on...and give my regards to the Life Boat!

IMO it seems you were seeing forward to these days of.. happy family one hand clap..only the hand holds a hand grenade now.
Peter your work has always been a great inspiration to me...so my friend, I live about 20 miles from ground zero and I plan on sharing your words, with folks who are taking this as if this is just another day, in a bit rumpled and dusty New York...not seeing, they have to crawl a cracked and broken path. Well I hope we can make it, and sit back and laugh, but I fear tomorow the world will be crying...I can here the weeping of the lost souls as far as 20 miles away the silence of the dead is deafening. thank you for streching my young brain many moons ago.

I find the balm that I need by returning to those times, music and lyrics of "Peace-An End." I wish more impressionable young men and elderly gents would take the time to listen to this tune.

It always did me some good. Sorry it took 30 years, but thank you Mr. Sinfield.

I hope everyone is enjoying good health and is able to make the most of it. I'm pleased you added a discussion forum; I'll need to learn how best to make use of the editing possibilities the forum offers. In the meantime, I invite you all to read "the very long post" (diatribe, actually); and related correction located in the forum section on the newly launched "Ladies of the Lake" website(homepages.about.com/valseven/ladiesofthelake).
I hope that my comments contribute to the overall discussion found on this website, and I welcome any additional comments, either by e-mail or through the forum or guestbook (please note that e-mail is subject to accidental deletion!) Peter, you seem to lead an interesting and rather introspective life (sure beats the heck out of defending the Empire, eh?). As you know, this isn't the first time I've contacted you. This time, however, I seasoned my words with the savory herb of good will and I hope the results therewith are more to your liking. Bridgebuilding, anyone? (I always wanted to learn how to play bridge).......

Comments:Hmmm... What can I write here? That I've been a fan for years? Nah... I only have In The Court Of The Crimson King and Brain Salad Surgery. That I'm a fan of your lyrics? I do find them interesting but as I said to one reporter that was asking if I wrote lyrics or music first: Music always comes first. I don't see why lyricists get 50% of the songs rights. If words were as important as the music, we would hear poems on the radio. What draws your attention toward a song? The music first, always. If the tune is good then we listen to the lyrics, hoping that the bastard can write something coherent. Peter Sinfield, you are a great poet. King Crimson's music without your words would be meaningless but still pleasant! Peter Sinfield, you're one crazy guy! I might go oout and buy more of your work. I think I just became a fan.

the origin of the crimson king had been a mystery to me
until yesterday. thanks to you an added dimension of
western nature has been clarified. bil 'sabab in its arabic
meaning signifies "in the cause of".
what cause or aim you had in mind? i would ask you.
king crimson played for me in the terrible and deadly
nights of fighting in Lebanon, 1975-1978. for me it is
associated with western explosives power, used against the
east. contrary and similarly to the times of king Richard
II. under the same sky, the same sun the same moon.
i shall enjoy reading all you have on the site. thanks for
sharing your knowledge this way. opening up our hearts for

Comments:King Crimson's album, 'Lizard' was and still is one of my
favourite song cycles, even though I had no idea about the
genesis of the lyrics. Now, after reading these wonderfully
researched and crossreferenced notes, I feel like a fan
reborn! Kudos to all involved for renewing my faith, both
in the written word, and in the power of music to change
one's state.
'Lizard', in particular, stands as a testament to the
magickal pairing of Robert Fripp and Peter Sinfield.
Long may they live in our hearts and minds.

Comments:hi, i've found this page, when i just - for fun -
type "kundalini+uroborus" into google. and here we go -
this is one of the most interesting sites i've found
lately - it's not just the enormous amount of texts, but i
find truly great all the links here... since i'm not a
friend of the group (actually hadven't heard one song i'm
afraid), for me it's The place for various wicked links to
weird pages :) thus - Big Thanks for your work...

Comments:Hmm. Lots of fun speculating and developing creative
exegesis but Jung is a fraud at the end of the day, folks.
Sorry, it's just that there is real stuff to learn. Leave
the hocus pocus to the sleepy head, but wake up wake up
when the alarm goes tic tac in the morning. The Crimson
King is the sun. When we wake up he is there, his court is
the light of the living day, it's not so bad unless it's
not day after all and you're still reading by moonlight.
It's a lot like Poe's Masque of the Red Death. The red
death is the flesh and blood that "congeals" round our
astral faces when we awaken each morning in our bodies, or
the red acne we get on our faces when we go through
puberty - another rude awakening. Anyhow, read my book,
CRITICAL SYNOPTICS (try the linkto view the pretty cover
and a blurbbbb) and I shall teach you much more interesting
and magical things than Herr Jung could ever offer.

Comments: I've been enjoying Jon's site for some months now and
have talked with him regarding the synchronous interplay
between Peter's lyrics and the life of Frederick II.
However, my research indicates to me that there was perhaps
a slightly greater element of humour in the court of the
crimson king. On my homepage I will elaborate.

refernces here that illuminate these series of albums that I have almost readily at hand in Memory. I enjoy the writings of
Ousensky and of Rumi (where I can find them). and appreciate aditional texts that I have not contemplated. much praise to
the work represented here and I hope yo visit again. I am glad that Peter Sinfield work can now be explored outside therealm
of the pop and rock charts where I initially discovered his King Crimson Work. Thank You. myron blakely

over this site very thouroughly time and again and I really
enjoy it. Why dont you write Bob and the boys a tune or two?

Would you consider being interviewed via 10 e-mailed

Perhaps a photo? You can advertise or sell anything you want

Comment: ìThe reason is obvious - words make you think thoughts. Music makes you feel a feeling. But a song makes you feel a thought. Thatís the great advantage to feel the thought. You rarely feel a thought with just dialogue itself. And thatís why song is the most powerful weapon there is. You can teach more through song and you can rouse more through song than all the prose in the world or all the poemsî. Yip Harwood

Comment: I note Peter was "whelmed" rather than committing himself to "under..." or "over...". Me, too. Fascinating drivel! The point about the lyrics is that they're evocative, not some sort of code hiding some mysterious "real" message. They suggest all sorts of interpretations. I've always heard them as surrealist lyrics using romantic fantasy images. But that's just me. boogie on down...

Comment: as an unrepentant devotee of Sinfield's wordsmithing for well nigh 25 years and counting, I have often found myself at a loss trying to describe and explain my fascination with the man's words and ideas...often being greeted with skepticsm and/or complete ignorance. Imagine my delight to have found a site like this, which not only collects and enlightens, but opens up a whole new world of which I was totally unaware, or ignorant, if you will. A million million thanks for this site, and the read
