Originally formed as a trio (Robert Fripp on guitar, Michael Giles on drums and vocals, and Peter Giles on bass and vocals) in Bournemouth, UK, in September 1967. Around June 1968, they were joined by Judy Dyble on vocals (only for about a month), and Ian McDonald on sax, keyboards and vocals. As a quintet they made several home recordings, including the later much-appraised “I Talk To The Wind”.
In their time, Giles Giles and Fripp managed to release one full album "The Cheerful Insanity Of Giles, Giles And Fripp" and two singles, which didn’t sell well yet were considered quite interesting by the then music press. Between November 1968 and January 1969, the remaining members (omitting Peter Giles) were joined by Greg Lake, and later by roadie Peter Sinfield, and changed their name to King Crimson.
