It looks like a new podcast called, Lost Notes from KCRW, has found a lost conversation with Captain Beefheart: http://www.kcrw.com/news-culture/lost-notes/electricity-conversations-with-captain-beefheart.


I haven't heard it yet...and I am unlikely to file a report.


Regards,
Dammit.

Thanks, Dammit, thanks.

Finally got around to listening to this bit of beef-art. Majestic like a crow's wing-tipped eel.

Heh - had no idea that Frank Sinatra's label was Reprise.

I wonder what he thought about Beefheart's tv spot for Lick My Decals Off Baby: https://youtu.be/X8gwhaWV_OU


Maybe that was the inspiration for Sinatra's concept album? Prolly not.

He briefly went commercial but just couldn't hide the weird.

Here are two items of no interest to non-Beefheart and Beefheart fans alike.

*The Most Ever Company*
Some crazy kids have UTub channel called, The Most Ever Company. I think these kids is amazing.

Here's an impromptu Dali's Car, for example.

They do some Beefheart transcriptions that are, quite frankly, music to my ears. The whole list is here, but some faves are below: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLftB2gYwhiFGQZodEfF2ItWCS8QqVWodn

Variations on Hair Pie (Bake One)

One Red Rose that I mean (Beefheart Transcription
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-uqmYTLp9E

Pena [Beefheart transcription]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8p2obwkf9E

Next up is the Beefheart Project from Toronto.

*Beefheart Project Toronto*
The pizza may suck iin Toronto, but these geese can fly.

This exegesis on one of Beefhearts song is the most detailed explanation of how Beefheart's music is arranged and played is very engaging. It's an hour long, but worth the time: https://youtu.be/nJVCMV0bfgM.

Their version of Hair Pie Bake II is...well, just look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZNJlLKRAHE

Peaches over Gold, dammit!

Fallin Ditch. Also, the only Beefheart song I've ever heard.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Fallen Ditch on Trout Mask

That bass line returned in later Beefheart songs, I believe.
