Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band are back with the release of their new live album ‘The Magic Band Plays The Music Of Captain Beefheart’ on the 25th November. The band, led by the mercurial John “Drumbo” French performed a stellar concert of the Captain’s music in London during their spring tour in 2013. Joining the aforementioned Drumbo on stage are Denny “Feelers Reebo” Walley and Mark “Rockette Morton” Boston, supported by their younger disciples Eric Klerks and Craig Bunch.
Recorded live at Chelsea Under The Bridge on March 16, 2013, this thirteen track album features twelve original Don Van Vliet compositions and a Willie Dixon/Bo Diddley penned track, together forming a true musical testament to the legacy of the great Captain Beefheart.
