The Red Krayola – God Bless the Red Krayola and All Who Sail With It: “

Genre: Psychedelic Rock / Experimental Rock

Based in…: UK
Label: International Artist
Year: 1968
My Rate: 7/10

The Red Krayola is one of the longest-lived underground rock groups and have influenced a plenty of post-punk and C86 bands with its psychedelic, spacy folk-rock sound. Truly a classic, enjoy it!

Review from AMG:
Far gentler than, though equally quirky as, their maiden effort, the
Red Krayola’s second album was a series of odd miniatures that, though
far more restrained than Parable of Arable Land, was a much more solid indication of the direction Mayo Thompson would explore over the next few decades. These are less ‘songs’ than stream-of-consciousness fragments. Thompson‘s
wavering, quizzical voice intones disjointed but evocative lyrics that
may appear to be non sequiturs. Odd time meters and musical shifts do
their best to defy conventional rock song structures. It’s not very
poppy, no, but if the description sounds foreboding, be assured that as
experimental rock goes, it’s far warmer and friendlier than the norm.
