Post a Comment. Here's a first for the Recordmecca Blog--a guest columnist. On hearing of Beefheart's passing this week, I asked Gene if he'd be willing to write a remembrance of the Captain. Happily, he's obliged. Amidst the bad news, the good is that his music is, and hopefully forever shall be, in the world.
This reminiscence is strictly personal. I had a little one-on-one interaction with Beefheart; mostly the relationship was between me and his powerful, funny, touching recordings and performances. My God! Hey, what can I tell you? I was in love. With his voice, his inspired entanglements of verse and melody, the look, the aura of strangeness permeating the whole act, right down to the grinning-baby Safe As Milk Maria Magdalena - Various - Disco Summer Night strip that fell out of that issue of Rolling Stone.
But there is more. And Trout Mask!! This guy was giving notice: He was in the business of busting, following Harry Irene - Various - Fast N Bulbous muse to left turns no one else would even Harry Irene - Various - Fast N Bulbous taking. I was working at Warners by then, and my boss, Pete Johnson, took on the job of producing Beast. It was around this time that I spent a bit of time with Beefheart.
The ad ran in our Feb. May that voice go on forever. Posted by T. No comments:. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.
