THE RED KRAYOLA : Live In Paris 1978

Red Krayola Paris
Suitably extravagant - & elusive - release on the legendary (genuinely!) Sordide Sentimental label. Recorded live at The Bataclan on 13th December 1978 circa Soldier Talk, this version of The Red Krayola is just Mayo Thompson on vocals & guitar with Jesse Chamberlain on drums. Despite the reduced circumstances it's surprisingly powerful, Mayo is in fine angular fettle & the audience are well up for it. Released in a super limited edition of a few hundred & essential listening for all but the most fairweather of Krayola disciples. Off you go...

Pass the Mayo
