I know we haven’t yet converted all of you to the good Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band – perhaps we should have started with the accessible stuff, and held back the early groundbreaking tracks?

Anyroad, this week we have a great video to bring home to you the sheer CRAZY JOY they put out, short of seeing them in person on this fantastic tour following the Clear Spot and Spotlight Kid albums.

Ladeez, gennulmen, persons, live in Paris in 1973 – Click Clack!


I never saw the White Stripes live, and now I really regret it – that Meg rocked.

Here they do our favourite Son House tune, Death Letter Blues

About Rob

Rob co-founded BCB with Mary Dowson, back when the hills were young and it were all flat caps an chappatis round 'ere. It was known as Bradford Festival Radio then, and thanks to the generosity of Dusty Rhodes we got started. Now he takes photos, puts little silver discs in drawers, mumbles into microphones, and walks on the hills. Keep On Blowin..
