***Captain Beefheart***

Hell...I'm glad both groups exist. But I really like the Fast 'n' Bulbous disk a lot.

Let's say Back to the Front is for hardcore and completest fans.

The Mallard albums have Beefheart-like vocals, but they are different enough that it's not a problem. Also they aren't doing covers.

Good albums, though. Pick 'em up if you can find them. Have they ever been released on CD?

Hoy hoy! I'm pleasantly surprised by the depth of Captain fandom at Organissimo. Another reason to hang out in this place.

Want Captain on video!

Tonight let there be ice cream for crow.

I really like "Safe as Milk" (and "TMR", of course....)

Now that I am giving this a spin, I know why I haven't listened to it in years. Mallard is the Magic Band with out the magic and Sam Galpin is not a Captain. :blink:

Like Willy the Pimp!

I'm a little pimp

With my hair gassed back

Pair a khaki pants

With my shoe shined black

I got a little lady . . .

And she walks that street

Tellin’ all the boys

That she can’t be beat

She can’t be beat

She can’t be beat

She’s so sweet

She knows she can’t be beat

She can’t be beat

She can’t be beat

She’s so sweet

She knows she can’t be beat

Twenny dollah bill

(I can set you straight)

Meet me on the corner boy an don’t be late

Man in a suit

With a bow-tie neck

Tryna buy some pussy

With a third party check

A third party check, a third party check

He’s tryna buy some pussy

With a third party check

A third party check, a third party check

He’s tryna buy some pussy

With a third party checks

Standin’ onna porch of the lido hotel

Floozies in the lobby love the way I sell:

Hot meat . . .

Hot rats . . .

Hot cats . . .

Hot zits

Hot meat . . .

Hot feet . . .

Hot rats . . .

Hot cats

No dis, it's just not magic. They hit some nice grooves on the debut, but the guitar solos and fusion strike on the 2nd effort.

Personally I'd rather listen to the Captains music than look as his artwork...that one is pretty cool.

Run paint run run!!

It bugged me a little that NPR referred to him this morning as "excentric musician, Capt. Beefheart". <_<
