      “不一样”其实就是“另类”的意思,但“另类”这个词实在是太知识分子了,从“不一定”到“不一样”,不过是从一个口头禅,变成另一个口头禅—— “口头禅”,多好的一个词啊,先锋在此多么日常。
    当“不一定”渐成 “一定”,窦唯便另起“不一样”的炉灶。今年《雨吁》的出版转移了视线,甚至给有的人窦唯又要开唱的错觉。实际上这张尘封6年的旧作那些古僻汉字并没有掩盖其Bark Psychosis式的后摇滚尾巴,而窦唯在此后渐渐摆脱模仿,开启了真正的“东游记”。我曾把窦唯与不一定去年的《八和九生》称作 “在古琴与电子之间无中生有”,与其说是对他们音乐状态的描述,还不如说更是期望,实际上在“不一定”中,张荐远未用电音发功。到了今年的《东游记》和《水先后古清风乐》,窦唯他们不只是继续重用巫娜的古琴,还添上了瑟,而窦唯与Fm3在香港出版的佳作《后观音》则沉湎于电子的太虚幻境。窦唯成了一个在琴瑟相鸣的民乐与虚实相生的电子两极逍遥游的神人,这正是中国新音乐在新世纪的新形象。遥视窦唯的两极,看似风马牛不相及的“不一样”人员组合也就顺理成章。
    刘元并没给“不一样”带来任何爵士气息,就像以前尽管“不一定”大多成员玩爵士,但“不一定”的音乐并没什么爵士色彩,因为窦唯基本与爵士无关,我曾送给他一张John Coltrane的《Blue Train》黑胶,但他不知John Coltrane是谁(于是这张黑胶便转落入文智涌之手);杨一也没有带来什么民谣,虽然他有人声,偶尔这人声也近乎吟唱。总之,一碰到窦唯,刘元不爵士,杨一不民谣,立马变得不一样。只有武权和张荐是“一样”的,那就是挥洒其电子音乐家/声音艺术家本色,他们的两个笔记本电脑,决定了“不一样”的电音取向:吉他贝斯鼓三大件基本被弃,电音垫底,电音铺陈,而不玩电音甚至不碰电脑的窦唯一碰到武权和张荐,当然也“不一样”了。
    12月2日在深圳根据地酒吧上步店算是“不一样”的“全球独家首演”,演出时间是65分钟,3日在根据地南山店演出时间则是64分钟,第二场因为有第一场的积累,加上观众也没第一场那么爆棚嘈杂,因此临场发挥明显更好,演到一小时的时候,看表读秒的张荐便与武权一齐合上笔记本,留窦唯吹箫一曲终了。
    窦唯的份量比在“不一定”时有减无增,由于武权和张荐二人电力十足,他的键盘有时甚至只是晴蜓点水,若有若无。第一场他以键盘独奏开…

    Due to very understandable reasons, this episode will be mostly about King Crimson. Since I possess quite a lot of KC material, this writeup will give me a chance to review the band's career and output as a whole on a chronological timeline. So please bear with me even though I might end up sounding like a fucking history teacher.

    For some strange reason I still don't own King Crimson's first two albums. Shame on me!

    Oh, and as this comes in such a suitable time: Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Komfortable Kwanzaa, Jubilant Yule, Satisfactory Saturnalia -- choose your poison!

    King Crimson - Lizard

    By Lizard, King Crimson's third release, guitarist Robert Fripp had effectively taken control of the band, as he and lyricist/illuminator Peter Sinfield were the only original members left. Fripp is credited for all the music on the album, while Sinfield's lyrics have reached a certain extreme. I've read a creditable analysis about the lyrics of the "Lizard" suite once…
