With the entirely new music statement, Sighs Trapped By Liars, THE RED KRAYOLA renew their association with conceptual artists ART & LANGUAGE. Beginning in 1973, their collaboration includes the video projects “Nine Gross and Conspicuous Errors,” and “Struggle in New York,” as well as the much-acclaimed and decried music releases Corrected Slogans, Kangaroo? and Black Snakes. Thirty years has mellowed the various parties not at all. The faint-hearted might want to swallow something calming before giving Sighs Trapped By Liars a spin. The album is as much a delightful bit of latter-day entertainment as it is a sensational musical excursion not trapped in any era. The composers of Red Krayola classics such as “Keep All Your Friends,” “Portrait of V.I.Lenin in the Style of Jackson Pollock,” ”Black Snakes,” and “Born In Flames” have made another try at negotiating the relationship between language and music in this new collection. Speaking in a contemporary (and frequently foul-mouthed) voice they say something we could all stand to hear—in a popular music format that we can all enjoy. Art & Language’s lyrical contributions were put to music and played by MAYO THOMPSON, accompanied by TOM WATSON, JOHN McENTIRE, NOEL KUPERSMITH and JIM O’ROURKE. om Watson, John McEntire, Noel Kupersmith and Jim O’Rourke. The music is an intimate and expansive setting, a pop framework for deliberate and meditative language. Red Krayola vocalists ELISA RANDAZZO and SANDY YANG stepped forth to the mic for a lead vocal performance that runs the register from ethereal-to-nursery-rhyme-to-adult-contemporary, with the odd obscenity smoothly integrated into its logic.
