Influence



Have you ever noticed that there are certain pieces/works of art, be it film, sculpture, a painted canvas, or music that are so "difficult" or "complex" that it may take several immersions over the years before one can fully wrap their heart & mind around it?

It is through the gradual exposure to additional seething beasts of cultural catharsis that we gain more insight and understanding of other glittering and glistening paragons. You can't expect someone raised on pop radio to fully comprehend Sun Ra.

After the absorption of other diseases, we slowly become enamored with our own rotting flesh.

The first time I listened to Red Krayola, I didn't know what was happening to me. 10 years later, I reference them all over this blog. Live at The Angry Arts & Berkeley Folk Festivals. A certain Mr. John Fahey sits in to add his own psychosis to the swirling anti-hippie madness. RK hold the honor of the only band on the bill asked to stop playing, please.

I was wondering why all the RK/MT ref's... Really enjoying the noneck; if are there any Mayo/rK lps you don't have, I might be able to post it in your comments in return?

Oh brother, the post seems to be knocking off the last third of the link so for redundancy's sake here it is broken up into 2 parts, just paste the two bits together to reform into the single workable link.
