Captain Beefheart RIP

Yes, yes, I know it’s nearly Christmas and we’re all supposed to be feeling festive.

But spare a thought for the sad news that Don van Vliet has died aged 69.

As Captain Beefheart, he was one of the few musicians to truly merit the description “genuis”.

So in amongst the Yuletide shenanigans, we’ll be paying our own tribute to the Good Captain on Bradford Beat this week (Thursday, 23 Dec 8pm – 9pm)
