Biografía

Don van Vliet nacido como Don Glenn Vliet y conocido como Captain Beefheart (15 de enero de 1941 – 17 de diciembre de 2010) fue un músico de rock y pintor estadounidense originario de Glendale, California, Estados Unidos. Su trabajo musical lo realizó acompañado por una banda llamada The Magic Band, que estuvo activa desde mediados de los 60 hasta principios de los 80. Van Vliet principalmente dirigía la banda y tocaba la armónica y, ocasionalmente, el saxofón y el teclado, de manera amateur e influenciado por el free-jazz. Sus composiciones se caracterizaban por extraños cambios de tiempo, ritmos cambiantes, disonancias y letras surrealistas. Van Vliet se caracterizó por el trato casi dictatorial con el que trató a sus músicos y por su enigmática relación con el público.

Captain Beefheart se unió a la recién formada Magic Band en 1965, de la que rápidamente se hizo líder. Sus primeras referencias musicales giran en torno al blues y al rock, pero poco a poco, renombrados como Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, adoptan una aproximación más experimental. En 1969 aparece su disco más conocido y a la vez más aclamado por la crítica, Trout Mask Replica, producido por Frank Zappa y que es actualmente reconocido como una obra maestra rupturista e influyente en el devenir de la música rock contemporánea1 Van Vliet publicó varios álbumes más a lo largo de la década de 1970, pero su grupo sufrió varios cambios de formación y tuvo poco reconocimiento comercial.

    I'm excited about Sun Zoom Spark, but I've heard all of the unreleased tracks many times, as they've been circulating on bootlegs forever. It'll be great to own LMDOB on CD, though! I've owned it on vinyl for ages, but it'll be good to also have it on CD.

    Hell yes, very excited about that! I would love to own Lick My Decals separately as well. But because of the outtakes/new songs and we finally get Decals on CD, i think it's totally worth it.

    Anyone excited about this? - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sun-Zoom-Spark-1970-1972/dp/B00N4FAVCA/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1415735113&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=sun+soom+spark+box+set I was sceptical initially in that I thought that it was just a way of being duped into paying more for a CD reissue of Lick My Decals (an album I would adore to own, instead of having the mp3s). It pissed me off that they couldn't just package it separately. I wouldn't want to fork money for reissues of Spotlight Kid/Clear Spot, either. The outtakes look REALLY alluring, though. Check out this previously unreleased song. It's probably the first time I've heard a Beefheart track for the first time since the age of fifteen! - http://dangerousminds.net/comments/amazing_unreleased_captain_beefheart (scroll down)

    при том, что он гений, несомненно, думаю, в его музыке слишком много изобретательности, и слишком мало всего остального.

    I decided to try listening through Trout Mask replica...after 14 minutes, nothing made sense to me anymore.

    I just wanted to take back my minor complaint about TMR having some filler. It does not. It is a fucking perfect masterpiece.

    I agree with Mampato that I find Ice Cream for Crow slightly filler-ish. I mean, by anyone else's standards the album is outstanding, but I find it slightly disappointing by Beefheart standards. I prefer the two preceding albums as far as the late-period stuff goes. I do not believe there's any filler on Trout Mask Replica at all, and Hair Pie is an essential part of the puzzle. The Zappa anti-production is one of those situations where we can never really know if the album could have sounded even better with a more produced sound, but I'd think it's unlikely it would have sounded quite so special any other way than it is. And I find that Don's primitive and primal sax playing is perfect for the album; the sax at the end of Ant Man Bee is one of the highlights of the whole album -- I can't imagine it not being there. And nostalgia-rush -- people like you are so fucking pointless. You are unoriginal and insecure.

    Whether it's the hipster thing to do or not is really irrelevant. It doesn't change the fact that Beefheart will always be one of the greatest music groups of all time.
