Who was/is Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more


 

Gegründet 1964 in Kalifornien.

Er ist ohne Zweifel eine der eigentümlichsten Musikerpersönlichkeiten, die die Rockszene aufweisen kann - Captain Beefheart alias Don Van Vliet, Dichter, Maler, Sänger, Mundharmonikaspieler, Saxophonist. Wenn man hört, dass für Captain Beefheart alles mit Frank Zappa begann, rundet sich der Kreis, denn wo sonst könnten Freaks sich so formieren, wie unter Franks Flügeln. 1963 zog Zappa mit seiner Schar in die Wüste, um einen Film zu drehen, dessen Hauptrolle Don als Captain Beefheart spielen sollte. Aus dem Film wurde nichts - aber musikalisch ging's danach für alle weiter. Zappa baute seine Mothers of lnvention auf, Don seine Magic Band, mit der er bisher 6 LPs einspielte, doch wissen Kenner mindestens noch von der gleichen Zahl unveröffentlichter Platten, die bei den verschiedensten Firmen in den Archiven liegen.

Seine Magic Band ist der Tummelplatz der seltsamsten Musiker mit den seltsamsten Instrumenten: da spielt Zoot Horn Rollo die „Glass Finger Guitar', und eine „steelappendage guitar', die vorher schon Antannae Jimmy Semens bis zu seinem Ausscheiden gespielt hatte. Rockette morton spielt den „Bassus Orphelius'. Zur Magic Band gehörte auch einmal„The Mascara Snake', Schwager von Captain Beefheart. Beefheart selbst, Sänger mit angeblich 7 Oktaven, der mit seinem Stimmvolumen und Umfang selbst die irrsten Popschreihälse zu piepsenden Mäuschen machen kann, brüllt, heult, grunzt vor diesem musikalischen Backing seine Songs ~ Klassiker allzumal, wie den „Dropout Boogie', den „Zig Zag Wanderer', „Beatle Bones N' Smoking Stones', den „Dachau Blues' oder den „Buggy Boogie Woogie'.
