About calling the release “Captain Beefheart”

It’s a way to pay tribute to Don Glen Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart (January 15, 1941 – December 17, 2010) . For more information on Captain Beefheart, visit:

A proposed name for this release was “frownland” after the super amazing song Frownland on the album “Trout mask replica”, but …. “Captain beefheart” is the name.
