American ambient keyboardist Robert Rich and German touch guitarist Markus Reuter have known each other for over a decade, and produced two albums together. But they have never toured together until now, a short tour they are calling Flood ...

Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary

Read "Leonardo Pavkovic: Nothing is Ordinary" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

More than any other person, Leonardo Pavkovic has made me write some crazy shit.

Pavkovic is the primal force behind the joyously eclectic MoonJune Records, which he established in 2001. “Established" may not be the right word: “I am truly an unusual and rules breaking call-it-record-company with a 'label' identity despite the fact that ...

Stick Men featuring Mel Collins: Roppongi

Read "Roppongi" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Stick Men is a long standing offshoot group from the iconic progressive rock band King Crimson. Founded in 2007 by drummer Pat Mastelotto and Chapman Stick players Tony Levin and Michael Bernier, it took its name from the unusual instrumentation of two Stick players. Mastelotto recently joked that if they knew it would go on so ...

Stick Men
Havana
New Hope, PA

Stick Men look like a secondary project or side endeavor on the surface--probably inevitable since the members are most known in the progressive music world for being part of the King Crimson family--but there's a real difference between being a side ...

Wingfield Reuter Stavi Sirkis: The Stone House

Read "The Stone House" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Electrifying collective improvisation from four progressive masters. The combination of electric guitar, touch guitar, electric bass and drums recalls the classic David Torn album Cloud About Mercury (ECM, 1987), as well as the various improvisational King Crimson spinoffs called ProjeKcts.

U.K. guitarist Mark Wingfield (Jane Chapman, solo artist, and one half of the long-running ...

Stick Men: Prog Noir

Read "Prog Noir" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Following up Stick Men's exhilarating recent 2-CD live set Midori (Moonjune, 2016) featuring legendary King Crimson violinist David Cross, the trio now supplements its monstrous attack with vocals, and tinted with a noir (dark) panorama via the lower tonal registers. Moreover, the King Crimson connection is in-place with current members, Tony Levin (Stick & voice) and ...

Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess

Read "Levin Minnemann Rudess: From the Law Offices of Levin Minnemann Rudess" reviewed by John Kelman

It may look good on paper, but you can never really know how “super group" collaborations are going to work out until they actually get together and do something. In the case of the power trio named after its members--bassist/stick player Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Stick Men), drummer/guitarist Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, The Aristocrats, ...

Stick Men featuring David Cross: Stick Men + David Cross: Midori

Read "Stick Men + David Cross: Midori" reviewed by Geno Thackara

It was a short-lived but perfect pairing. Stick Men is an inventive rock trio, progressive in the truest sense of the word, including current King Crimson members Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto and rounded out by the always-mercurial Markus Reuter. David Cross had served as Crimson's violinist in their early '70s jazzy-avant-proto-metal phase (though his tenure ...

Stick Men: Deep

Read "Deep" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Interestingly enough, this production was funded by fans through the Pledge Music website. The positive outcome should instill delight and a sense of fulfillment for the band's patrons, perhaps one of the densest incarnations of a progressive-rock trio imaginable. Tony Levin's (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel) Chapman Stick work, coupled with Markus Reuter's (Tuner, Europa String Choir) ...
