"Frownland" (note: Aztec Camera weirdly quoted the opening line of this song in the 1993 ballad "Vertigo")
"The Dust Blows Forward 'N The Dust Blows Back"
"Ella Guru" (yeah, the best--because of the catchy chorus)
"Moonlight In Vermont"
"Ant Man Bee"
"Hobo Chang Ba"
"Steal Softly Through Snow"
"Veteran's Day Poppy" (the end part of it, at least)
That's 11 songs out of 28. Sorry, but this thing's never been a favorite of mine--it's a style I can only get into on certain songs and the songs I didn't name mostly blend together. It's the kind of thing that's more fun to think about or talk about than actually listen to, IMO--the Andy Kaufman of rock music!!.`
Yes, this board does talk about it fairly frequently, but mostly Pugeye. We don't discuss the old 60s classics nearly as much as we did when George was still here.
Of the other Beefheart I listened to, Safe As Milk was pretty cool (and accessible), Clear Spot was passable but not that memorable and The Spotlight Kid bored me to tears (though live clips of "Booglarize You Baby" are hilarious). I should probably make it a point to hear those last couple of records of his as I know they have a nice reputation.
Nice of Jack White to do that for TMR since It Might Be Loud confirmed my impression of Jack White as being a massive pud (Prindle's words.)
Beefheart was supposedly a totally sickening, hideous Lou Reed-level dickhead to his band members.
