Fast 'n' Bulbous
The horntastic seven-piece group arranged by saxophonist Phillip Johnston and featuring guitarist Gary Lucas transforms Captain Beefheart's terse, tempo-twisting themes into tough, angular improvisatory vehicles. While you may miss John French's linguistic drumming, the band's rampant party spirit and joyful noises more than do justice to Cap. Van Vliet's bluesy nature-boy ardor, as demonstrated by the band's second album, Waxed Oop. With Sxip Shirey and Adam Matta.
