Stick Men - Prog Noir album review
King Crimson’s rhythm section, aka Stick Men, stays weird and wonderful.
Drummer Pat Mastelotto and bassist Tony Levin must rank as two of rock’s busiest musicians. They’re both members of King Crimson, while Levin is also a prolific session musician and a regular in Peter Gabriel’s band, and Mastelotto’s projects include O.R.k. and Komara. Somehow they’ve still found time to make four albums as Stick Men, in which their trio is completed by guitarist Markus Reuter. The music is uncompromisingly odd and all the better for it.
