Art & Language And The Red Crayola - Corrected Slogans mp3 flac
First Manufactured in 1976. The booklet depicts the front and back covers of the first reissue of the LP. Inside the booklet the sleeve of the very first issue is reproduced as well. It also contains the song texts. This is a wonderful record. Its lyrics are incantabile, the singers can't sing, the music is quite simplicistic, you rarely hear more than a single instrument - but the result is simply a unique, very atmospheric and homogenous album, precious, intellectually inspiring and not to be compared with anything else. You might call it "Proto-Punk" in the sense of its inner freedom. This is an extremely underrated album, regrettably it is almost unknown and I have to admit, that I wonder how it could do this?

Red Krayola leader Mayo Thompson does most of the singing in his usual near-operatic squall, although other members contribute recitations. The wildly complex lyrics are among the most literate and thought-provoking of their time, with a refreshing lack of simplistic sloganeering and an almost Dadaist sense of whimsy. The 20 tracks range from very brief to rather expansive, with musical backing ranging from minimalist piano to what sounds like an oompah band on acid
The album was adopted by Drag City and was re-issued on CD in 1997. All tracks written by Michael Baldwin, Philip Pilkington, and Mayo Thompson. Jesse Chamberlain – drums. Colin Bateman – engineering, mixing, recording. Thomas Duffy – engineering, mixing, recording.
Overall, SLOGANS' only album is, along with HOPO, a nice entry into the tail end of 1970s RPI, which would essentially lie dormant until the emergence of NUOVA ERA in 1988-these guys were definitely swimming upstream! This is a good album, one to acquire especially if you're an RPI.
