King Crimson played two nights at the Marquee club in February 1973 with a completely new line-up that included drummer Bill Bruford from Yes, bassist John Wetton from Uriah Heep, violin player David Cross and the percussionist Jamie Muir. The band present the album "Lark's Tongues In Aspic", which was released a month later. These were the last shows that ever played at the club. During the performance Jamie Muir got injured as the Melody Maker published next Saturday: "King Crimson's second drummer Jamie Muir fractured his foot during Saturday night's performance the London's Marquee Club and the group played the following night's show without him. "It was touch and go whether the group would play the second night at all," Marquee manager Jack Barrie told the MM this week. "I was very grateful to the group for carrying on without him on Sunday because there were hundreds of fans who would have been disappointed".

As the review explains, the second of the shows didn't include Jamie Muir and that was the very last performance of the percussionist with the band.
