ProjeKct Two featured members Robert Fripp (guitar), Trey Gunn (Warr guitar, talker) and Adrian Belew (V-drums). It was the second of the ProjeKcts to be planned, thus its name, but the first to play and record. Belew is the lead vocalist and a guitarist in King Crimson, but in ProjeKct Two he plays V-drums, a type of electronic drum kit. This configuration was unplanned, but when the group gathered at Belew's home studio to record, he had recently taken possession of the V-drums and Fripp was keen to experiment with their use. The group enjoyed the results enough that it was decided to keep this configuration for the whole course of the project.
Space Groove, recorded over three days (19-21 November 1997), was a double CD of improvisations performed in the studio during the band's first sessions together. They toured in USA, UK, Japan and Canada between February and July 1998, playing new material and some King Crimson pieces including "Dinosaur" and "VROOOM." The Deception of the Thrush later became part of the repertoire of ProjeKcts Three and Four and King Crimson.
