    Default Captain Beefheart

    Who else thinks it would be amazing if they can get Captain Beefheart to come out of seclusion for one last show.

    I would be terrified and excited at the same time...Would the Cap even be into it? Can he even perform anymore? How epic would Trout Mask Replica soundlike live? And the Sheriff of Hong Kong?

    Uh thick cloud caught uh piper clubs tail
    The match struck blue on uh railroad rail
    The old puff horse was just pullin' thru
    'n uh man wore uh peg leg forever
    I'm on the bum where the hoboes run
    The air breaks with filthy chatter
    Oh I don't care there's no place there
    I don't think it matters
    My skin's blazin' thru
    'n my clothes in tatters
    'n the railroad looked
    Like uh "Y" up the hill of ladders
    Ohe shoe fell on the gravel
    One stick poked down
    Gray of age fell down on uh pair of ears
    An eagle shined thru my hole watch pocket
    Uh gingham girl baby girl
    Passed me by in tears
    Uh jack rabbit raised his folded ears
    Uh beautiful sagebrush jack rabbit
    'n an oriole sang like an orange
    His breast full uh worms
    'n his tail clawed the evenin' like uh hammer
    His wings took t' air like uh bomber
    'n my rain can caught me uh cup uh water
    When I got into town
    Odd jobs mam ah yer horse I'll fodder
    I'm the round house man
    I once was yer father
    Uh little up the road uh wooden
    Candy stripe barber pole
    'n above it read uh sign "Painless Parker"
    Lic-licorice twisted around under uh fly
    'n uh youngster cocked 'er eye
    God before me if I'm not crazy
    Is my daughter
    Come little one with yer little dimpled fingers
    Gimme one 'n I'll buy you uh cherry phosphate
    Take you down t' the foamin' brine 'n water
    'n show you the wooden tits
    On the Goddess with the pole out s'full sail
    That tempted away yer peg legged father
    I was shanghaied by uh high hat beaver moustache man
    'n his pirate friend
    I woke up in vomit 'n beer in uh banana bin
    'n uh soft lass with brown skin
    Bore me seven babies with snappin' black eyes
    'n beautiful ebony skin
    'n here it is I'm with you my daughter
    Thirty years away can make uh seaman's eyes
    Uh round house man's eyes flow out water
    Salt water

    I can't believe there is no reaction to this thread. This makes me incredibly sad.

    That's a big if, there's no way that will happen, but yes, the idea is terrific. There's a better chance of Zappa plays Zappa, which in my mind would rock just as much.

    Do you think Zappa Plays Zappa could be a headliner? I mean they're using people from Zappa's old band and it's his son performing the songs.

    pretty sure he wouldn't be able to perform anymore and Zappa plays Zappa would be lame.

    I don't think they could headline, but it'd still be awesome. Who knows, maybe if Zappa Plays Zappa did Willie the Pimp live, Captain Beefheart would join them.

    He can move around still. Yeah he's frail but has anyone seen video of Leonard Cohen in 2008? If he can do it so can Captain Beefheart

    If it did happen which it won't, there's no way it could be a headliner, I mean they're billed under Les Claypool for New Years next week. And they don't play any large-type venues, at least not around these parts.
