fripper-silent-ronics-night...

frippernight

in december 1979 i bought a great little punk zine called praxis because of articles on the buzzcocks, gang of four, magazine, and johnny thunders. nestled in the center was a flexi disc that at the time was disappointingly not punk rock.

... the flexi (which i recently discovered in a box) is a version of silent night played by robert fripp with all the holiday frippertronic trimmings. it's basically guitar running through a reel to reel tape deck, creating live delays and loops...

while i'm not much of a fan of the song, or holiday music in general, this is quite a beauty and i like to think it's more about the feeling of "night. silent." than anything else... happy holidays.
