Thompson is primarily known as the leader (and only constant member) of the Red Krayola, the long-running underground band that initially made their mark on the '60s psychedelic scene and went on to become noted players in the post-punk era. In 1970, he released a little-known album under his own name, Corky's Debt to His Father, for the small Texas Revolution label. By and large it's as unclassifiably oddball as his Red Krayola stuff. But on the whole it's more accessible and, in a way, rather charming, its off-kilter, folk-rock sensibility bearing some similarities to the work of Syd Barrett. It was reissued on CD in the '90s by the Drag City label. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi
