CJ's Video Of The Moment "Prog-Rockers In The 80's" Edition

Robert Fripp & Andy Summers "I Advance Masked" (A&M, 1982)



Ingredients for this video:

1. Take one prog-rock guitar icon (albeit one quite comfortable in the punk/new wave early 80's and beyond, King Crimson's Robert Fripp).
2. Add one 80's non-hair-metal guitar hero (The Police's Andy Summers, who just happened to have been a friend of Fripp's for decades)
3. Mix in a bunch of pretty Asian women and some banners that read "Hitori No Watashi" ("I, as one person").

Result: Bewilderment all around, albeit with some eye candy and a cool soundtrack.

Only Robert Fripp could peel off 32nd notes in 7/4 time while having a "what-the-fuck?" expression on his otherwise mild-mannered face.

why was "fat bush" the first thing that popped into my head when I saw those ladies?

I don't know. Maybe Fripp and/or Summers were thinking the same thing during the video shoot?

Fatbush tickles.
I'm scared of this video.
