Prog Magazine Issue 132 (August 2022) Robert Fripp
NOTE: Prog no longer comes with a free CD (there is a streamable sampler available online). This issue comes with four King Crimson postcards.
An eternal enigma, he is the leader of one of the greatest prog bands of all time, responsible for some of the best and most complex progressive music ever. Yet he spurns the prog tag, has had a fractious relationship with some of his band mates over the years and defies perception by appearing with wife Toyah in a series of light-hearted lockdown videos. So who is the real Robert Fripp? Prog was invited to Sunday lunch to find out.
This issue also comes with four unique King Crimson post cards and an 18-track sampler from US prog label Lasers Edge Records featuring music from Wolverine, Discipline, White Willlow, Tiles, Kingcrow and more...
