|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 andfluidcreativity.Whilehe never came even remotely close to mainstream success, Beefheart's
impact was incalculable, andhisfingerprints wereallover punk, new wave and post-rock.
