Listening Booth – King Crimson, “One More Red Nightmare”

More prog goodness, you say?  Sure!  Here’s my favorite KC tune ever, from their 1974 masterpiece Red.

Witness the majestic and face-melting drumming of one Bill Bruford, who absolutely owns on this number.  My favorite moment comes just after the 4:20 mark, when he kicks out this sinister groove that I could listen to on repeat all day.  That weird-sounding cymbal he uses, in a stroke of great luck, was the result of some impromptu dumpster-diving.

Forget just prog rock, kids, music doesn’t get much better than this.
