    Ashtray Heart Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band Doc at the Radar Station
    Thank You For Your Love Antony & the Johnsons Swanlights

    1. Nice to see the Captain, Doc at the Radar Station is my favorite Beefheart album.
      "Somebody's had too much to think"

      1. Mr Van Vliet could turn a phrase.

        By the way, the 8-9-10 combo could give a guy whip lash. From lilting British Isles folk, to Beefheart's demented, whiskey-stained croak, to Antony's otherworldly swoon. Random, indeed.

  11. The Sleigh Bells show was a lot of fun. I wish they had a full band live, and it felt like it lasted all of 15 minutes once they got going, but it was still high energy and fun.
