  • CARLA_ on Lick My Decals Off, Baby lyricsAre you sure? Lot's of sources say there is also a music video for the song. I found this, but has no video, it's length is not the same as the commercial either: https://www.moma.org/collection/works/107930?artist_id=32427
  • Steve on Trout’s 50th at the Bluecoat GalleryYes, you're right. He's 'proposing' to build one.
  • Rupert Cocking on Trout’s 50th at the Bluecoat GalleryDon't want to appear pedantic but I understand Tyman will only be 'talking' about building a model of the house not actually building it!
  • Steve on Lick My Decals Off, Baby lyricsThere isn't a video for the album as such. There is however a promo film for it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRlmTzDyw7s
  • Carla_ on Lick My Decals Off, Baby lyricsAccording to wikipedia there's a music video for this music but I can find it. Anyone knows more about it or where to find it?
  • Graham on Beatle Bones ‘n’ Smokin’ Stones lyricsNot so fast! John French stated that it was "Strawberry feels forever" rather than the more expected "fields" as a very DVV play on words - twisting the Beatles lyric into a bizarre aphorism along the lines of "an elephant never forgets". I love this subtle twist. "Strawberry feels forever"...
  • Graham on Sweet Sweet Bulbs lyricsWho knows, you could well be right, but my lyric sheet in the TMR CD says "latest garden".
  • Graham on The Thousandth and Tenth Day of the Human Totem Pole – song notesThanks for pointing that out – an embarrassing typo which might have been online for 20 years! Now corrected.

  • David Stedman on Bat Chain Puller discographyHi … I made the big mistake of not buying BCP when the Zappa release came out and have been searching for used copies … and came across this link: https://store.captainbeefheart.com/bat-chain-puller-cd.html Does anybody know anything about this? Any info would be greatly appreciated before I take the plunge. :)

  • David DeGeus on 1969 Captain Beefheart’s wedding by Mike BugbeeI'd like to know if the author Mike Bugbee, is the same Mike Bugbee who grew up on Kalisher Street in Granada Hills? If it is, get a hold of me Mike. Dave DeGeus
  • Steve on Trust Us lyricsWhat's the quibble?
  • Robert Mehling on Trust Us lyricsThank God you guys are still around! Great job. I have just a tiny quibble about one line of lyrics printed above in Beefheart’s Trust Us. I hear: “We’re for you, of you, with you, all of you, just a few” Of course there’s no way to be sure now...

  • Radames Pera on Saturday Night Live 1980Beefheart Drummer Robert Williams' story about me and what happened that night and a couple of days later is true and accurate.
  • on TMR vinyl on TMRHorribly disappointed in the vinyl quality. The "Sardine" colored vinyl had so many clicks and pops that my receiver shut itself down to avoid speaker damage! I know the Travers remix is great and hoping the 2019 RSD black vinyl release plays better.
  • on The Thousandth and Tenth Day of the Human Totem Pole – song notesIt's a Statue of Liberty Doll (not status). If you want to know what Don thought about the Statue of Liberty listen to his lyrics on Who Do You Think You're Fooling (A&M B-side 1966) which was addressed to the statue itself. "You're as cute as can be / Just...
  • Robert on Trout Mask Replica discographyI got this album when it came out. I was 17. I read the review in Rolling Stone and thought, "Why not?" I have loved this album for 50 years. I really see it as two albums. The first is wild and crazy blues with such songs as Moonlight on...
  • Steve on Beatle Bones ‘n’ Smokin’ Stones lyricsQuite right. Amazing how long that's been on here and no on has noticed!
  • Neal Martin on Trout Mask LiveTrout Mask Live is obviously not a legal release. The graphics are third rate. Have you ever heard of a rare bootleg being around for more than a couple of years before being re-bootlegged? I will wait for someone to put it on the web. Whomever put this together scammed...
