Listening Booth – David Sylvian & Robert Fripp, “Jean the Birdman”
When he wanted to put together yet another version of King Crimson in the early 1990s, Robert Fripp reached out to Japan co-founder David Sylvian. Sylvian passed at the opportunity, but the pair went ahead released a studio album in 1993 anyway. This is the best cut from that album — “Jean the Birdman”. It’s a bit goofy, but the song more than makes up for it.
So given that this video was produced in ’93, how do you think it fared on MTV?
