Fast ‘N’ Bulbous (CDs)

Pork Chop Blue Around The Rind (Cuneiform 205)

Buy on Bandcamp

“Johnston’s brass scores hit the R&B meat and twisted swing that Beefheart embedded in spidery guitars. “Pachuco Cadaver,” also from “Trout Mask”, became a New Orleans marching-band romp. A power-trio medley of “Click Clack” and “Ice Cream for Crow” with Lucas on searing bottleneck guitar celebrated the rock in Beefheart’s extremes.” – Rolling Stone


Waxed Oop (Cuneiform 277)

Buy on Bandcamp

If you know the originals, you’ll love the way Beefheart’s vocals are turned into horn riffs or guitar melodies; if you don’t you’ll easily follow the melodic imagination and rhythmic drive of the music that’s equal parts challenging and catchy.”
