It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Gordon, a great musician and a wonderful person who will be sadly missed by so many.

Gordon briefly joined King Crimson in 1970 after appearing as a guest vocalist on In The Wake Of Poseidon singing Cadence & Cascade. He was asked to join the band full-time in the summer of that year and provided bass and vocals on Lizard, the last album King Crimson recorded at Wessex Studios. The experience was not a happy one for Gordon and he bitterly regretted his decision to join.

Progzilla Radio is pleased to present the WORLD PREMIERE of a track off the upcoming debut “asbestos MOUTH” album by… TERMS!

Drummer Danny Piechocki and guitarist/bassist Christopher Trull honed their craft in bands like Grand Ulena, Jitters, and Yowie. In TERMS, Chris creates dissonant riffs and skewed melodies, which collide with Danny’s syncopated thunderstorm of percussion, to create a balance of tight precision and spontaneous discovery. It’s simply jaw-dropping!

As you may already expect, Mike Pollack and The Progressive Tracks Show (#383 – Size Doesn’t Matter) is premiering the track named “Our Asbestos Mouths” because TERMS fits right into the general demeanor of Mike’s show.

Progzilla Radio will host this track exclusively for the week of this premiere, courtesy of SKiN GRAFT RECORDS (http://www.SKiNGRAFTRECORDS.com). The “asbestos MOUTH” album can be purchased through the SKiN GRAFT Records site on Bandcamp, for release October 2, 2020 (https://skingraftrecords.bandcamp.com/album/asbestos-mouth ).

But for now… enjoy this exclusive track, below!
