Re: Captain Beefheart ~Trout Mask Replica

Damn now I'm going to have to dig out my copy and play it after reading all this banter...:D

I have to credit a Swedish friend who got me to check out the Captain, before that I never really gave him much thought...and that was a mistake.:bonk:

"Clearly, records like Trout Mask Replica are off-limits to tender ears with big hearts and dancing shoes."

Magic, Be Afraid Be very afraid!!

Magic will tell you that there's no such thing as music to which one can't dance; there are only bad dancers. And "Trout Mask Replica" contains many of her favourite dance tunes.

:D

Re: Captain Beefheart ~Trout Mask Replica

I got this album a few or so years ago as a birthday present and I listened to it from start to finish and I absolutely love it. The Dust Blows Forward 'n the Dust Blows Back, Pachuco Cadavers, Ella Guru, Moonlight On Vermont, Well are just some of my fave tracks. I love the chaotic madness and humour of Beefheart's lyrics/poems and the Magic Band's music. Definitely original and a great album to own for those who want something completely different. :D

Re: Captain Beefheart ~Trout Mask Replica

Trout Mask Replica is one of the single most offensive albums I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. It's brilliant.

No one offends like Beefheart, he really makes your spine crawl. It's like watching ballet dancers at the edge of the apocalypse struggling to dance while snakes viciously snap at their ********.

Top-notch album, really. FAST AND BULBOUS.

It took me awhile to get into TRM and I say that as a huge Beefheart fan to begin with. But I stuck with it and it finally made sense and it's now one of my favorite albums.

I hold TMR in very high regard, but my favorite Capt. Beefheart album is Doc at the Radar Station.
