The Red Paintings: The Revolution is Never Coming!

red paintings1THE RED PAINTINGS: The Revolution is Never Coming. Graphite Records

Trash McSweeney sees colour in music. Ever since suffering a near-fatal seizure, Trash set out to share with the world a lifetime’s worth of ideas about what he has seen and felt. By taking to his guitar, piano, and notebook, The Red Paintings were born. They combine performance art and music in a spectacular live show. Each show features unique visual projections along with human body and canvas painters who join them on stage to create artworks that reflect their music and energy. Epic, ambitious and inspiring, the debut record from orchestral art rock group The Red Paintings was five years in the making, taking founder and songwriter Trash McSweeney on a quest around the globe for the right colours to shape his synesthesia-inspired opus. The results are impressive – a 35-piece orchestra, harps, theremins, a 22-piece choir and of course, the band’s biting alternative rock, ranging from childlike lullabies of the future, to rousing emotional anthems. The hits are all here – the ubiquitous ‘Wasps’, ‘You’re Not One Of Them’, ‘Walls’ and ‘Streets Fell Into My Window’ are lush and effective, whilst the ornate gems ‘Rain’, ‘Deleted Romantic’ and ‘Hong Kong’ raise the caliber of the record yet another notch. The creative promise and ambition of The Red Paintings has been fulfilled spectacularly on this dynamic and electric debut. Simply stunning.

Bryan Carlstrom – Producer, Engineer (Alice in Chains, Rob Zombie):“In my entire 30 year career I’ve not mixed such a diverse, colourful and emotionally dynamic album such as this, it’s like a 21st century War of the Worlds.”

Trash McSweeney – The Red Paintings: ‘’People create an album around a life, I created a life around an album.’’
