Captain Beefheart (15.1.1941 - 17.12.2010)





Λίγο πριν κλείσει τα 70 έφυγε από κοντά μας ο Captain Beefheart  (Don Glen Vliet), άλλη μια από της μουσικές ιδιοφυΐες που ξεπρόβαλαν τη δεκαετία το 60. Ο Captain Beefheart που ουσιαστικά είχε απομακρυνθεί από το μουσικό στερέωμα από το 1982 με το συγκρότημά του (The Magic Band) κυκλοφόρησε 12 στούντιο άλμπουμ. Η μουσική του είχε σαν αρχική επιρροή τα μπλουζ αλλά δύσκολα θα μπορούσε να περιθωριοποιηθεί κατατασσόμενη σε κάποια μουσική κατηγορία, γιατί απλωνόταν σε πολύ περισσότερες με περίσσεια άνεση. Δεν είναι καθόλου τυχαία η φιλική του σχέση με το  Frank Zappa που του έδωσε και το όνομα Captain Beefheart. Επίσης οι καλλιτεχνικές του ανησυχίες δεν ήταν περιορισμένες στο χώρο της μουσικής αλλά και σε άλλες τέχνες όπως η ζωγραφική και η ποίηση. Δείγματα από πίνακές του μπορείτε να βρείτε στην επίσημη ιστοσελίδα του εδώ, ενώ τους στίχους και ποιήματά του εδώ.

Middle Flower, 1990

Το BBC έχει κάνει ένα μικρό αφιέρωμα σε αυτόν εδώ.
 
Safe As Milk 



Well my cigarette died when I washed my face
Dropped some drops in an ashtray hit a wrong place
Woman at my blinds to see spiders spinning lines
Its a safe as milk it's a safe as milk
I never heard it put quite that way
The shape I'm in is a gone a way
They called a day they called a day
Yesterday's paper headlines approach rain gutter teasing rusty cat sneezing
Soppin wet hammer dusty and wheezing
Lusty alley whining trashcan blues
Children running after rainbows stocking poor
Gracious ladies nylon hanging on to line
Jumping onto leg looking mighty fine

Sorrows lollipop lands stick-broken on a dark carnival ground
Pop up toaster cracklin
Aluminium rhythm and sound
Ev'ry day pencil lazy and sharp
The icebox inside looking like a harp
E-lectric bulb been out for years
Freezer fumes feed the gas tears
Cheese in the corner with a mile long beard
Bacon blue bread dog eared (repeat twice)

I may be hungry but I sure ain't weird

Ice Cream For Crow 


It's so hot
looks like you have three beaks crow
the moon's so full
white hat on a pumpkin
you know there's something
the moon was a stone's throw
stop the show
I need to say hello
to the crow
light the fire piano
the moon showed up
and it started to show
tonight there'd be ice cream
ice cream for crow
ice cream for crow
sun cream by day
ice cream for crow
ice cream by night
ice cream by day
the sun ain't stable
ice cream for crow
crow pants the scarecrow
crow dance ah ho ho
crow dance ah panther
scare crow you answer
you can hee and haw
laugh and scratch
ha ha ha
ha ha ha
boss and toss
don't shake my hand
give me your claw
two tears in a haystack
scarecrow get back
tonight there's gonna be
a feather treatment
beneath the symbol
we'll all assemble
oh how we'll fly
oh how we'll tremble
cut the cake
we'll all get well
turn up the speakers
hop flop squawk
it's a keeper
ice cream for show
ice cream for crow
now now that's it
now you can go


Sure 'nuff 'n Yes I Do 



Well I was born in the desert came on up from New Orleans
Came up on a tornado sunlight in the sky
I went around all day with the moon sticking in my eye

Hey hey hey all you young girls wherever you're at
I got a brand new Cadillac I got a Ferrari too
Sure 'nuff baby sure 'nuff 'n yes I do
Got the time to teach ya' now, bet you'll learn some too
Got the time to teach ya' now, bet you'll learn some too
Sure 'nuff baby sure 'nuff 'n yes I do

Hey hey hey all you young girls whatever you do
Hey hey hey all you young girls whatever you do
Well come on by and see me I'll make it worth it to you

.....with me and I'll ..with me and you
Sleep with me and I'll sleep with me and you
Stick with me and I'll stick with me and you
