Cooper, Lindsay / Henry Cow Related / Fred Frith - Rags Rags
Soundtrack Used - LP RRF 001 Arc
Rare 1980 UK Original With 18 Page Illustrated Booklet. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. Rags Is A Mix Of Progressive-Folk, Workers’ Songs And 20th Century Chamber Music. What It Lacks In Communal Chutzpah Is More Than Compensated By A More Personal, Delicate And Chamber-Like Music Idiom. The Music Is Entirely Written For Small Ensembles In Which Piano, Bassoon Or Guitar Lead The Melody, While Sally Potter And Phil Minton Alternate On Vocals. A Few Tracks Are Entirely Played On Wind Instruments By Cooper In Re-Recording. The Beautiful Last Track, The Song Of The Shirt, Reminds Both Hanns Eisler’s Die Mutter And French Chanson Réaliste. The 18 Page Booklet Includes Many B&W Collages By Linn MacRitchie As Well As Historical Research On 19th Century’s Working Classes By Sue Clayton And Jonathan Curling. As A Whole, Rags Is A Wonderful Concept Album, Politically Comparable To The Red Krayola And Art & Language Collaborations (Ever Wondered What Red Stands For In Red Krayola?).... more details
