Radar Station Review

After Ozit’s shameful reprinting of Babylon Books’ ‘The Lives & Times Of Captain Beefheart’ with new title & author credit, they’ve now followed it up with ‘Hungry But Weird’. As ‘Lives & Times’ came out in late 77, there is scope for a second volume covering reprints of interviews and features covering the last three Beefheart albums, which is effectively what ‘Hungry’ is.

At first look, it appears really shoddy: articles in random order with no indication of their source, some fairly crappy drawings, and typewritten poems & lyrics. A quick trip to the bookshelf reminds us that the ‘Lives & Times’, and the accompanying Zappa book (also swiped by Ozit) were actually much the same.

So, worth getting except for two things: it’s grossly overpriced, and it encourages Ozit, who are proud to advertise not only their so-called ‘official’ releases at the back of the book, but also another 8 CDs that are just out-and-out bootlegs!
