Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, nope I never heard of this particular captain nor of his magic band. Which after watching this DVD of The Lost Broadcasts I can understand why I’ve never heard of this guy or of the band. These lost broadcasts where filmed in 1972 where the band did multiple takes on some of the songs. Opening the set is a bass solo song, ‘Mascara Snake’ that’s one of the better bass solos that I’ve heard and one that’s actually got a good thrumming tempo to it.
