Richard has one, he played it live with MK in the past, usually playing it on his lap with a bootleneck.

Yes I know. and someone noticed that the one on the pic seems to have a square neck, so indeed it's most likely Richard's one

I noticed that the picture had changed too.  I hope MK still has it somewhere, because it seemed so perfect being on the album cover.

I found this article regarding the sale of another John Bratby painting - "Three Lambrettas" .

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/granada-to-sell-oil-painting-984496

That's not the same one on the Crimson cover, but very similar, maybe Bratby painted a series of them.
You might get lucky, now and then

"Watching TV"

Does this painting tell us something? Message?

ah ah ah ah, very good Robson!

I doubt there is any message on that further that MK likes the paintings of that artist, but who knows... maybe he found any inspiration on it for a song, for an album title, or even for a cover!

Danny on FB in the MK group:

Hello Dear Friends,

I thought that I would stop by and say hi.
I know that you probably feel as passionately as I do, about MK’s music.
I think maybe that photo was taken on the last day of recording, though I’m not absolutely sure.

It was one of the most satisfying and enjoyable months of work that I can ever remember. As you can see the mood was light although the work itself was quite serious. Meticulous and intensive though never intense, those guys are pro’s and can take it as it comes. They never panic and the sessions just glide along.
Before you knew it the day was over as time just went by so quickly.
Whole bands recording together live like we did, has become something of a rarity. And therein hides the X factor which to me is the fact that you are capturing not just a piece of music but an even and the spirit of something very palpable, which took place in a room one day and is preserved as a piece of art.
When I listen to old records I always imagine the musicians being there “together”.!
To me, that’s what it’s all about.
We got a lot of work done but it was over all too soon. We all gave each other a hug, kind words were spoken and we each went our separate ways.
An unforgettable month of art, music, humour and a camaraderie. Like no other!

Be safe and well all of you

Love

Danny x

In this lot Watching TV had a sale estimate of £8000 - £12,000 not sure when that was though. I don't think this was the inspiration for Watching TV by Roger Waters though :)

I have to say, who plays what and who owns what when it comes to making MK's records absolutely fascinates me. Several times before, Guy has referred to Richard playing something that he owns. So does MK have a list of all of Richard's instruments? Are the songs established enough before the band get "sent for" to the point where MK can ask Richard to bring this or that instrument with him? Does MK own all those percussion instruments?
And what about the lap steels in the rack? If they weren't MK's, would they be housed in the rack of guitars? and where is everything kept? I'm guessing MK has a fair amount of guitars (probably acoustics) with him at his home but are all the rest of the guitars kept there?

And when they go on tour, how do they decide which Mc plays which instrument? Who made the decision for Mike to play tenor guitar in StP and John to play whistle?

My goodness, I badly need that Henrik H documentary.

Questions, questions... Good questions. It is also very fascinating for me.

Yes, it's always fascinating to see all the great songs from Mark's junkyard  ;D come to life.
This is all the heaven we've got right here where we are in our shangri-la.

Mark has a warehouse where he keeps his stuff, Chris Evans said he was jealous of it when he interviewed him around Tracker time.

I assume he keeps fancy cars in there (hence the jealousy from Chris), but guitars too I guess.
