    Tracks of the Week: Beef

    Captain Beefheart "Tropical Hot Dog Night" - I enjoy listening to WZBC (90.3 fm) on my Friday night home commutes. From 6-7pm is Test Pattern, a weekly show with a rotating guest DJ who spotlights an artist, a label, or a music scene. There have been some great ones lately. Bill Laswell, Carl Stalling, and Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band. No doubt this track had to be played during the hour. Buy It.

    Captain Beefheart "Love Lies" - Here's another song from the Captain's 1978 release Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller). A tad more straight-forward than the track above, but arguably equally as silly. What do you expect from a man who has a 4½ octave vocal range and enjoyed the company of Frank Zappa? Buy It.
