Giles, Giles and Fripp were a quirky late sixties band featuring brothers Michael Giles on drums, Peter Giles on bass guitar, and rounded out by Robert Fripp on guitar. They released only one album, The Cheerful Insanity of Giles, Giles and Fripp in 1968 by Deram Records. In 2002 a second release came out, The Brondesbury Tapes, featuring various recordings throughout 1968, with the group augmented by Ian McDonald on saxophone and flute, and Judy Dyble on vocals. Michael Giles, Fripp and McDonald went on to form the first King Crimson line-up, rounded out by bassist/vocalist Greg Lake and lyricist Peter Sinfield.
