Sent here by a friend (well suggested, anyway). Very enthused by the site…glad to know it’s here. I’m here to find “Proof [positive] that 0=1, but 1 cannot = 0… Can oui still have something if there is no nothing?… Is nothing just something-stealthed? I like my friend sam, very much and I “fear” that if I come back with nothing he will do something that he regards as nothing…

Has Don ever heard Ian Brown?
|Wednesday, February 20, 2002 7:41 PM
just to say i first heard the capt. about almost exactly one year ago and he totally blew me away. It was clear spot ad nausaum for a week and i’m still not bored of it. since then i have collected most of the albums (exept blue jeans and some of the semi-legits and compilations) last month, after searching for what seemed like ever i found a beautiful vinyl copy of lick my decals off, baby and i do belive that i’m in heaven….this site has been excellent in fuelling the beef-flames of passion and i managed to get a copy of grow fins through amazon.com last week, which is fantastic…IMHO decals is better then trout mask, but only barely…..and i DO sometimes cry as the final bars of veterens day poppy ring out the speakers…just wanna say thanks Don for making my life so much better (even if i do fail my GCSE’s because i’m grooving instead of revising)and happy belated B-day too…

God–please–fuck my mind for good. I first became aware of Don and his music from the cut-out bin of a music store in Lake Charles, La. back around ’78 or ’79—my world has definitely not been the same since. Don gave me hope that maybe,just maybe there were some other people who also had a very different take on the world than most people seem to see/feel. Thank God for Don and this site is one I will definitely be back to–a lot!!! Many thanks to whoever put it together!

The greatest music ever. I first heard Beefheart about 4 years ago and it just blew everything out of the water (old and new) and I know I will never see the world the same again. Thank you Captain Beefheart!!!!!!

i was at the fabulous firwood in fife washington tonight redneck mean cops anyway we saw Savoy Brown and Mr. simmonds mentioned in the mid 60’s a club he used to frequent calle Mothe earht. one night when he was there he saw a band that played some strange blues. He said that inspired him to write Louisianna Blues. He then mentioned that he heard Don was alive and painting. Anyway Don sure has touched a lot of people. I was lucky enough to see him plaay a couple time including his nortorious 40th B-Day bash at the Showbox got to spend time after the show getiing autograph’s and conversation. What a wonderful evening just like tonight. Thank’s Don.

At age thirteen, some 24 years ago, Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band rescued me from suburban new jersey teenage ennui (not far from the nautical numbskull hull.) The past sure is tense. Me and my twinkling lights survive intact to this day due mainly to Don. His paintings and gutteral utterings continue to inspire my life and art (like my sculpture “plastic horned devil”). When myhumangetsmeblues I always think of Don checking with the trees to see if the music is alright and how he speaks out in human to the humans for the plants and trees and other non-humans so we will stop hurting them (and ourselves). It’s gotten quite cold, Don, I want to give you my coat. I love you.

I decided today, whilst dancing around and singing “I’m Glad” into a microphone in front of my somewhat annoyed roomate, that SAFE AS MILK is the greatest album of the 20th century, hands down. Nobody can argue this fact, folks. It IS the greatest album of the 20th century.

Hi guys, love the site Good to see the name kept alive. U can also check out a great band on www.drumbaby.com/hokum. The Hokum band kicks ass in an oddball kind of way. I should know i’m the bass player.

THANK YOU Captain Beefheart for being so Brilliant. TROUT MASK and DECALS and SAM still sound as fresh and original as when I first heard them 30 years ago. THANK YOU to Mr.Howgego, our Physics teacher,who while covering for our music teacher, played his copy of TMR and changed my life. THANK YOU also to the person who invented the Internet and all the people who have contributed to this website. Every time I log on I find something new. MY SMILE IS STUCK —

Hello Don, it’s been a few. Brother Jim is down in Stockton still in the labor market, but alive and well. Myself, I’m up here with the Indian’s, ride my scooter, just being a “good boy”, most the time. I’ll check out your Website, and get back to you with a note. Sending Love & Light your way.

I love Captain Beefheart, his music is brilliant and my dad thinks that beefheart is great too. I bought him Trout Mask Replica for christmas, Ella Guru, Hair Pie Bake 1 and Moonlight On Vermont are the best trcks, from Jasmine, at school,13 years old

Beefy, Zoot and Rockette Morton used to be our neighbors while we were all in high school. Saw a lot of their gigs, as well as hearing them practise in the living room. We used to like sitting in Beefy’s 49 Hudsons (2) that were sitting in his yard…ahh the memories

All I can say is that Captain Beefheart is my savior. He is the most intelligent man to have ever walked this entire planet…. A man that was well past everyone in many aspects of life, and ability. The ultimate musician. If it werent for him i probably wouldnt be playing music at all he kinda saved it for me

I’d just like to say that the roots of “Bellerin’ Plane” as well as “Click Clack” and others extend back to delta blues songs such as “Freight Train” by Elizabeth Cotten “New Frisco Train” by Bukka White “Frisco Leaving Birmingham” by George Bullet Williams, “Mean Conductor Blues” by Ed Bell and many others.

I would like to own a trailer home in Gary, Indiana. Maybe next to a liquor store and a currency exchange. Plenty of empty storefronts from which to choose. Better, a chain of timeshare trailer parks from Milwaukee to Houston, and all points between. Casinos and laundromats as far as the eye can see. Yes. That is what I would like.

in sleepyton, life is dreamy; old barbershop, gas station, homes. usually cloudy, in the summer the gas station-garage doors are open and the old b.f. goodrich radio blares out Paul Harvey and Di-Gel ads. you can still find old hobo clutter down by the tracks, near the old dried up stream. empty can of spry. hires bottle. milk carton. canned heat.percey sledge? 100 pounds of clay

Thanks for putting together the Dock website. I’ve always considered the Captain to be one of the greatest artists of all time and his records meant alot to me as I was growing up. It’s nice to see all of this material made available to the public and in terms of recognition of Don’s genius as a lens on our world, reflecting his humor and wit on much of what is intrinsically absurd. Don Van Vliet really is the mirror man.
|Monday, November 19, 2001 12:15 PM
Captain Beefheart is a big influence of mine. Trout Mask Replica is amazing, but Lick My Decals Off Baby, Doc At The Radar Station and Ice Cream For Crow are almost as brilliant. My tracks You Are Paranoiac and mostly Sudden Feelings;Not Intellectual Fusion? (this last one being experimental rock made with samples) were very Beefheart influenced on my page…
