famous director Kathryn Bigelow was former member of this band. someone should correct releases

All lyrics appear as printed on the insert of the Recommended 1982 pressing of the LP, which was also the first to feature cover art (pictured left). The original 1976 pressing on the Music-Language label was released with no cover art but instead a piece of typed paper glued on the outer sleeve (pictured right).

Since Thompson worked with both the London and New York Art & Language branches on a number of different projects, this is probably why neither he nor the Red Krayola is listed separately on the original release. Only the mention of Jesse Chamberlain (the New York musician with whom Thompson reformed the Red Krayola in 1978) as the album’s drummer hints at the Red Krayola’s or, rather, Thompson’s involvement in the project. Later releases credited both Art & Language and The Red Krayola as the contributing artists, perhaps due to the respective 1978 and 1979 repressings of the first two U.S.-released Red Krayola albums on the British Radar Records label and Thompson’s own increased reputation.
