Beefheart Live on Television, 1980

video

A hard-to-find video of Captain Beefheart on a certain famous weekend comedy show that featured musical guests (no names, please, don't want to make it easy for the bots who seek and destroy this video every time it surfaces).  If they would just release it already, I wouldn't post it.

Or if it's out, someone let me know please.

Crappy video quality, riveting performance.

I love the confused silence at the end of the second song.

remember when the afore not mentioned weekend comedy show ran a full spectrum of musical guests? you could have someone relatively safe like paul simon one weekend, then Zappa the next. look at the crazy ass pairings here:
