Woman’s Boat and Lifeforms

What a Fripp

1994 was a wonderful active year for Fripp, contributing to Damage – Live , Flowermouth  and Sidi Mansour but that is not all.

Together with a star cast is names like Peter Gabriel, Trey Gunn and David Rhodes, Fripp contributed to Toni Childs album “The Woman’s Boat” on several tracks. The album features a rich world music inspiration that we also know from the works of Peter Gabriel in this period and it is no surprise to find that it was recorded in his Real World Studios.

 

Toni Childs (born 1957) is an American/Australian singer and songwriter. Making three albums from 1988 to 1994, best received was the debut “Union”. After 1997 Toni Childs gave up touring after developing Graves’ disease, she would not make another album until 2009.

Fripp also played on a track from “The Future Sound of London”’s album “Lifeforms” a wonderful album of avant-garde electronic music, walking the line between  techno and ambient. Surprisingly not only a success with critics but also commercially; selling over 60.000 copy’s.

The Future Sound of London is a duo of Garry Cobain born 1967 Bedford England and Brian Dougans born 1966 Glasgow Scotland. Brian Dougans has also released as soloartist under the name Humanoid having a hit with ”Stakker Humanoid” prior to his work with ”The Future Sound of London”
