Captain Beefheart - Doc at the Radar Station (1988) Retail CD
Prog-Rock/ Art Rock
This was the second of the last three great Beefheart albums before the painting took over and is probably the finest. Recorded in Los Angeles produced and arranged by the Captain himself it starts of with the stuttering quirkiness of 'Hot Head', which owes more than a slight nod to Televisions Marque Moon, 'Ahstray Heart' is a mad urban blues with the good Captain spitting the lyrics like venom,The instramentle 'A Carrot Is As Close As A Rabbit Gets To A Diamond' is the only weak track and is followed by classic after classic. There is the punk swing of 'Run Paint Run Run',the staccatto 'Suemore… Egypt' with its freefall slide guitar, 'Bickbats','Dirty Blue Gene' & 'Best Batch Yet' catch the Captain at the peak of his powers, snarling,shouting and screaming at the madhouse walls. 'Telephone', 'Flavor Bud Living' and the 'Sheriff of Hong Kong' are mini marvels of the twisted short story style that is pure Beefheart. The album closes with the fantasticly over the top 'Making love to a Vampire with a Monkey On My Knee'. A must for anyone starting off a serious Beefheart Collection.
