The Heavy Heads Disco pay tribute to one of modern musics true innovators. Captain Beefheart with the help of his Magic Band created some of the most definitive and original music to come out of America in the 60's and 70's. His use of idiosyncratic rhythms, absurdist lyrics and an unholy alliance of free jazz and delta blues created a singular body of work virtually unrivalled in its daring and fluid creativity.
