Christ I can’t believe both of these great men are gone.

Now if he said “Babysitter In Red,” that would have made it a much more interesting song. I’m thinking maybe he shouldn’t be looking at her. All of a sudden there’s a weakness there, a human frailty and a little dysfunction going on. “Babysitter In Sweatpants,” I’d listen to that. I’d like to see the lyrics for that.

Happy Earthday - Captain Beefheart (2003)

The final recording by our late lamented Captain, taped over the phone for an EarthJustice benefit album call Where We Live: Stand For What You Stand On. It was the first musical recording Don Van Vliet had released in over 20 years.

Not really a crowning Beefheart achievement, but it made a fitting epilogue to the compilation and in turn makes a wonderful tribute to a true weirdo. For further listening, we recommend Clear Spot, Safe as Milk and Trout Mask Replica (if you’ve got the time and the stomach for it).

Woe-Is-Uh-Me-Bop. 1941-2010.

Happy Earth Day from Captain Beefheart.

I’ve always had encyclopedic urges, In my youth I wanted a few lifetime projects rather than lots of short-term ones. Impossible projects appeal maybe because failure has less stigma when it’s inevitable. A lifetime project is a kind of armor. A defense against the forces of darkness. In other words, it’s good to have a hobby.

His newest interview for the Mutation Zine is full of amazing and inspiring nuggets.

I don’t feel particularly wedded to any one style or approach. My approach is pretty chaotic. I know I lack consistency but I’m too lazy to worry about it much. I’m an amateur, so I can afford to fail.
