i will spare you the details, but after a year of hopelessly suffering my quickly degenerating web host i have decided to discontinue our collaboration - and spread the word: freewebs sucks!
which means that with immediate effect captain beefheart electricity will be flashing on at the new address
see you there, you're welcome...
FART AT PLAY !

MEMORY - PICTURE(S)

I saw him about 5 times:
Monday 27 March '72 - London, Royal Albert Hallbut the Portsmouth show was probably the best, even though it was only about forty minutes. He turned up over an hour late and the audience was very pissed off. He walked on stage to loud boos and slow hand claps, but after a few words, less than a minute, he had the audience eating out of his hands. Hope these English phrases make sense. Anyway it was an absolutely brilliant show, just a shame it wasn't longer.
Saturday 5 May '73 - Southampton, Students Union
Saturday 5 July '75 - Knebworth, Knebworth Park
MONDAY 1 DECEMBER '75 - PORTSMOUTH, GUILDHALL
Thursday 13 November '80 - Guildford, Civic Hall

dave would like to remark:
The photos are not that great as Don did not believe in using too much light
two songs from the show, dali's car and beatle bones 'n' smokin' stones, have been brought out on the bootleg magnetic hands, but they suffer from a bad sound quality
