Captain Beefheart

I remember seeing this clip of Captain Beefheart (click "Captain Beefeheart" above) on Saturday Night Live way back in 1980 while I was in High School in Ottumwa, Iowa. It was the first time I'd ever heard the same music and words that were already in my head telecasted right into my parents basement where I sat enthralled and changed forever.

"Each pillow is counted like a rock
the mother-father figure
somebody's had too much to think
send your mother home your navel."

-Captain Beefheart/Don Van Vliet
