DC 369 CD 


Fingerpointing follows THE RED KRAYOLA’s ur-formula, first elaborated in The Parable of Arable Land (1967), designed to immerse and entertain the listener and confound the FM DJs and anyone else’s quest for the perfect segue in a narrative of counter-cultural meaningfulness. Where Fingerpainting reiterates the structure of The Parable, Fingerpointing recapitulates the same structure and the same material as Fingerpainting. It too is a parade of freak outs and songs alternately, and, like its progenitors, a dynamic synthesis that puts in play all that is at stake in the musical relation under the rubric of entertainment. Finerpointing could have been made for International Artists—the songs, like flies in amber, are versions of unreleased relics of the day modernity in its ruthless pursuit of its next moment signed away its carefree days of youth. The songs are by FREDERICK BARTHLEME, STEVE CUNNINGHAM and MAYO THOMPSON. The freak outs are not ‘authored’ in the usual sense. All of the music was recorded at Treehouse Studio in Pasadena, CA at the same time as the recording of Fingerpainting. It features the performances of DAVID GRUBBS, GEORGE HURLEY, ALBERT OEHLEN, STEPHEN PRINA, ELISA RANDAZZO, Thompson, TOM WATSON and SANDY YANG. Mixed by JIM O’ROURKE. (STREET DATE - 7/22/2008)
