King Crimson’s ‘In The Court Of The Crimson King’ was the record that made me want to be in a band. It blew my tiny child mind. The man behind the music was Robert Fripp. Fripp felt that music offered “the capacity to re-experience one’s innocence” and listening back to ‘Zootime’, our first seven-inch, I couldn’t believe how indebted to King Crimson it sounded.
