Repetitive Stress Injury

This is an interesting little video of King Crimson, in ’81 or so, playing “Discipline”. The interview segments are annoying, especially Robert Fripp talking about how cymbals get in his way. Really Robert? The little Bill Bruford snippet is cool though. He talks about playing a simple beat in 17/4 time. Bill… there is no such thing as a simple beat in 17/4 time. Just sayin’.

The real interesting thing about this video is that I am convinced to the core of my being that this song represents the birth of repetitive stress injuries in the Western world. Seriously. I developed carpal tunnel (sp?) just watching it. These guys are flat out insane.
