 実にキャリア30年以上のメイヨ・トンプソン率いるザ・レッド・クレイオラ。この日、ライブの前に渋谷タワー・レコードでのインストア・イベントにも行ったのだけど、ギターとアコーディオンをバックに語るように唄うメイヨ・トンプソンは、静かでありながら内面の熱気が沸々と感じられ、数曲の演奏ながら私はすっかり汗ばんでしまい、ライブへの期待がもの凄く高まっていた。

 今回のラインナップは、メイヨ・トンプソン、トム・ワトソン(g)、ジョン・マッケンタイア(ds)、チャーリー・アベル(accordion)の4人組。この日はこれに加え、譜面台に載せた大学ノートに書かれたコード表(多分)を見ながらギターを演奏するお兄さんが。なんと現在日本に在住しているジム・オルーク!この5人が産みだす音はインプロヴィゼーション、サイケデリック、フォークロア等々。 あまりに幅が広く、そして「カオス」だった。しかし、そんな中でも諸所にメイヨ・トンプソンのユーモアたっぷりな動きも見られた。

 お客さんは、変則リズムに聞き入る人、怒涛の音の洪水にトランス状態に陥ったように飛び跳ねる人、反応はさまざまだ。そして、ステージ袖にまで追い詰められながら撮影していた私は彼らの演奏にただただ圧倒され、それに負けないように彼らの動きを追うのに精一杯だった。

 若いバンドの荒削りで勢いのあるライブも好きなのだが、ザ・レッド・クレイオラや2年前に観たワイヤーなど、キャリアを重ねながら尚尖ったオジサン達(失礼!)のライブを体感すると、「アイツらはまだまだヒヨコだぜ」と思ってしまう単純な私。現在ツアー中の彼らの音を是非体験していただきたい。
