Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica (1969)

A colleague of Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart (aka Don Van Vliet) and his Magic Band produced some of the most eccentric music of the late 1960s--or, for that matter, ever. The high water mark of Beefheart's bizarre career, this double album of freeform "Dada rock" features such daunting tracks as "Pachuco Cadaver," "Hair Pie (Bakes 1 and 2)," and "Neon Meat Dream of an Octafish," all of which actually sound as unusual as their titles. Between Beefheart's mind-bending lyrics and cavernous voice, as well as the twisted playing of guitarists Zoot Horn Rollo and Antennae Jimmy Semens, bassist Rockette Morton and drummer The Mascara Snake, this album fully explains the expression "far out." --Billy Altman

Drumbo (John French) plays drums on this album. He also helped the Captain transcribe his sounds to the rest of the band. The Mascara Snake plays some clarinet and sax on the album (ie: the duet at the beginning of Hair Pie: Bake 1. Great album! Nothing like it and there never will be.
