Choice anecdotes: Beefheart locked one of his musicians in a closet to cleanse his memory of the note “C”! He prevented another from urinating to create “tension”! He directed another how to make drum sounds by swinging shopping bags around! He’d tell his band, “imagine yourself during the civil war & you’re a Yankee hiding in a small cabin holding a teddy bear & you can hear the enemy’s footsteps in the leaves outside coming to get you… Now play!” The heading for this Motion Picture Purgatory which originally appeared in a 2008 issue of The Montreal Mirror was “Don Van Vliet Beefs From The Heart!” As always; the original art’s for sale @ 100 bucks.
