|Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band
Born Don Vliet, Captain Beefheart was one ofmodern music's true innovators. The owner of aremarkable four-and-one-halfoctave vocal
range,heemployed idiosyncratic rhythms, absurdist lyricsand an unholy alliance of free jazz,Deltablues,latter-day classical music and rock & roll
to createasingular body of work virtually unrivalled in itsdaring andfluidcreativity.Whilehe never came evenremotely close to mainstream
success,Beefheart'simpact was incalculable,andhisfingerprints wereallover punk, new wave andpost-rock.
