商品説明

Having made their debut with one of the most aggressively eccentric albums of the 1960s (a fairly remarkable achievement given the competition), Mayo Thompson and his partners in the Red Krayola (changed from the Red Crayola after a threatened lawsuit from Binney & Smith) took a very different approach on their second album. The group had been experimenting with improvisational noise pieces using found objects and feedback alongside conventional instruments following the release of The Parable of Arable Land, a logical extension of the Familiar Ugly pieces on the album, but God Bless the Red Krayola and All Who Sail with It found the band taking up the conventional rock format of guitar, bass, and drums. However, if God Bless the Red Krayola is a formally more conventional and less alienating work than their first album, it's still a long, long way from what anyone was doing in the rock mainstream in 1968; the melodies are usually jagged and often veer into atonality, the songs stubbornly avoid typical verse chorus verse structures and sometimes appear to be improvised on the spot, drummer Tommy Smith enjoys throwing himself onto a different rhythmic path than his bandmates, Mayo Thompson's guitar lines run the gamut from fluid to jagged, and for all the noisy chaos of Parable, God Bless the Red Krayola is full of open space and significant, sometimes disquieting silences. However, not everything on the album is off-putting; Victory Garden could pass for something like conventional psychedelia, Ravi Shankar: Parachutist is lovely and haunting, Sheriff Jack starts out as something like blues before Smith's rhythms take a left turn, and Leejol, Dirth of Tilth, and Dairymaid's Lament confirm this band could play a fractured but enthusiastic version of rock & roll, even if it wasn't likely to please the average visitor to a psychedelic ballroom. Overall, God Bless the Red Krayola and All Who Sail with It bears precious little resemblance to anything else that appeared at the time; it would take a few decades of post-punk experimentalism before Mayo Thompson's vision would have a truly suitable context, though the album's playful undercurrent goes a long way toward making these tiny shards of sound go down easily for the musically open-minded. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

USAの寛容度はやはり大陸的だと感心する。悪名高いショウビズ帝国でいてシルヴァー・アップルやフランク・ザッパといった年代無視の異色アーティストをも輩出してしまう。そしてこのレッド・クレヨラ。なんつう音じゃ。私ゃグルグルや灰野敬二を思い浮かべてしまったぞ。

テキサスロードの道端で、荒野に向かってツレションしたら、無数のシャボンが出てきて飛んでった〜♪って歌唱。口笛とオナラの伴奏つけば青空も黄ばむサイケデリア。不思議と秩序がある。メイヨもエリクソンも大好き。りりこさんイイなぁ

Red Krayola (Red Crayola)

One of the longest-lived underground rock groups (if not the longest-lived), the Red Krayola lasted through the birth pangs of psychedelia past the death throes of post-punk. The one constant in their ever-shifting lineup has been principal singer/songwriter/visionary Mayo Thompson, who has seemed as concerned with deconstructing the language of rock music as with actually expressing himself withi
