|The Red Crayola with Art & Language Black Snakes Limited Reissue Vinyl LP
· ‘Black Snakes’ (DC104) was issued in 1983 as a co-release by Switzerland’s Rec Rec and Germany’s Pure Freunde label. With a quartet featuring synthist Allen Ravenstine doubling on soprano sax, this was a smaller group than had appeared on either of the Crayola’s two previous releases, ‘Soldier-Talk’ and ‘Kangaroo?’. Mayo Thompson’s guitar in particular shines in the space allowed by this configuration. As with ‘Corrected Slogans’, ‘Black Snakes’ debuted on CD via Drag City in 1997.
· Now that it is 20 years since the most recent of the records was issued, it’s time for all those who sail the way of Red Krayola to have a copy to spin again - at going market rates, of course.
