Yeah, that IS the amazing part. Every hiccup, sax fart, obtuse guitar chord, was precisely notated and rehearsed for months on end. Lester Bangs has
said that Captain Beefheart will end up being more important to music than the Beatles, similar to Ornette Coleman's influence on jazz.
For my money, I really dig the later period Beefheart-Magic Band. Doc at the Radar Station is my personal fave, with Shiny Beast (Bat Chain
Puller) coming in a close second as well...
cool mom too...
