|Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band
Born Don Vliet, Captain Beefheart was one of modern music's true innovators. The owner of a remarkable four-and-one.
halfoctave vocal range, he employed idiosyncratic rhythms, absurdist lyrics and an unholy alliance of free jazz,
Deltablues,latter-day classical music and rock & roll to create a singular body of work virtually unrivalled in its daring and
fluidcreativity.Whilehe never came even remotely close to mainstream success, Beefheart's impact was incalculable, and
hisfingerprints wereallover punk, new wave and post-rock.
