LINK: Captain Beefheart review
Lost Broadcasts DVD
Review by G. W. Hill
Captain Beefheart fans will certainly love to get their hands on this set. It’s from a 1972 appearance at the Beat Club when touring for his two brand new albums. He appeared at the Beat Club and for the most part these videos have never surfaced before. It includes some minor issues and glitches and the type of rather annoying effects for which the Beat Club was known, but it’s also quite cool. It’s a safe bet that Beefheart fans will be all over this because it truly is a rare release.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?
Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
