Loved the Tom Waits. Had to stop and say (to myself), "Is that Tom Waits or is that Captain Beefheart" (cos they certainly share similar tonalities in their voices for sure)--and then you followed up with the Captain. Would that all deejays could read my mind.

Ha, I'm glad to have anticipated your internal dialogue. That set was the serendipitous result of finally getting a hold of Gogol Bordello last weekend, which I heard on a Philly college station during the marathon in November. I thought musically it would work with waits who yes, has similar vocal qualities to Beefheart. But I always felt the Captain had a little more Howlin' Wolf in him, especially in those earlier tunes.

There's a great doc called Captain Beefheart: Under Review that I recommend. I actually only know a few of his records, so I found it really informative.
