Buyer's Guide: King Crimson

Without this unique, idiosyncratic and inspirational band, the past 40-odd years would have been musically far less colourful.

Forget a linear career; there’s nothing stable or logical about the way King Crimson have conducted themselves since forming in 1968.

This most exhaustive and exhausting of prog bands have had 21 full-time members across eight different line-ups, plus numerous guest musicians. Their career can be divided into four distinct eras, punctuated by hiatuses of varying lengths, the most recent ending earlier this year.
