    There's nothing I can say that will add to what has already been said in this thread. "Trout Mask" is a journey for the listener. A much better journey than the one the guys who made the album went through. Don't read the John French or Bill Harkleroad books if you still want to "like" Beefheart.

    Oh wonderful stuff. I do remember as a student many years ago, sitting up all night with mates, stoned and finding all of it deeply meaningful and profound! Still have a copy! "A squid eating dough in a polyethylene bag is fast and bulbous - got me?" Pure Shakespeare obviously!"

    you need to expirience "the dust blows forward and the dust blows back " an epic if ever there was one!

    there are no other words for it , a song to remind you that dimentia is not just a state of mind!, but an actual place you can visit and go home safely afterwards!

    Pappy with the Khaki sweatband
    Bowed goat potbellied barnyard that only he noticed
    The old fart was smart
    The old gold cloth madonna
    Dancin’ t’ the fiddle ‘n saw
    He ran down behind the knoll
    ‘n slipped on his wooden fishhead
    The mouth worked ‘n snapped all the bees
    Back t’ the bungalow ...
    Loved that song! And his others. Just say no to Wild Man Fisher tho

    Safe as Milk, the Fatmans best album. I can't remember which club I saw him. He would play the harmonica and stalk the stage, had that Wolfman voice with that accent on the end. Tickets a $5.00 cover (2 pounds) and a three drink minimum. The next weekend I saw Jimi Hendrix at the Marquee Club. The Bag O'Nails was another great venue. Savoy Brown was one of the best live bands ever. A lot of bands got started opening for Savoy. Saw Fleetwood open for them with Peter Green, the real Fleetwood before they were replaced with pod people.
