Album - new. Release Date: 12/02/21 Black Vinyl


Captain Beefheart and the magic band recorded thirteen albums over fifteen years which, given their frequency, chart one of the most fertile musical minds of the late twentieth century. Doc at the Radar Station, was first released in 1980 and followed the release of Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller). Recorded in Hollywood in May 1980 the album was harder and more powerful than its predecessor. Beefheart stripped away all the excess, culling any unnecessary reverb and echo on the tracks in an effort to give the music more space. it's regarded at the strongest album of his latter years. Featuring songs with unconvential titles as “A Carrot Is As Close As A Rabbit Gets To A Diamond”, “Making Love To A Vampire With A Monkey On My Knee” a.o.
