I spend most of my time devising evil plots in my secret villian's lair, underground. I pride myself on my wonderous ability to commit advanced acts of devious and sinister trickery without guilt.
By the way, I didn't think I'd have to say it but it keeps happening.
No one is allowed to use my illustrations without my permission. I like the idea of ME being paid for my work instead of other people.
How did I know you'd be a fan of the Captain, Keith? :)ReplyDelete
While I'm a huge fan of melody and harmony and connsonance in music I love CB. Yeah, I like Zappa a lot better, but I'm the only one of my friends that ever played Trout Mask Replica through more than once - - heck, I've experienced its weirdness dozens of times. Keith, you've got good taste!
Ya good stuff! I can certainly hear the influence in your own work :)ReplyDelete
Thanks R/E and Brad! I had high hopes when i picked up Trout Mask Replica but I couldn't get through it. (And I pride myself of my pain threshold for weird stuff like that.)ReplyDelete
As Mike Myers (CAT, in Cat in the Hat) said: "awwwwk-waad" Well, I don't care Keith whether you're a TROUT MASK guy or not... you still have fantastic musical taste and Talent.ReplyDelete
Haha!!! It was about 15 years ago. I'll give it another try on your recommendation, sir. Maybe my tasted have changed. At the time I read it was the greatest recording ever produced so I was expecting it to be better than all my favorite albums.ReplyDelete
I LOVE Captain Beefheart!ReplyDelete
This cd features Ry Cooder I believe. He was in the band for a while but left because of the "weirdness" I think. He eventually found other things to keep him busy.
Cooder is one of my all time fave guitarists.
I like Ry Cooder a lot too. I didn't realize that was him, but now that you say it I guess it does sound like his work.ReplyDelete
