Off Topic: You Lose Your Push When You Beat Around the Bush
I had another dental day yesterday, and I'm curiously uninspired today. On the other hand, I've been on a Captain Beefheart kick lately, so please feel free to have your mind blown by the video above. It's from 1972, a promotional film (but live!) made for The Spotlight Kid, so this is the Captain during the period when he got fat and wore Nudie suits all the time. But OMG, the Magic Band was never more amazing or better looking than this. I especially love drummer Art Tripp's (not Ed Marimba, as he is misidentified) caveman look. So chic!
Listen to it LOUD.
