6. Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band – Clear Spot
I fell in love with Beefheart through hearing him on John Peel. Whenever i hear Beefheart, Dub reggae or The Fall i’m always transported back to furtive listening on a radio hidden under the covers in my room. ‘Trout Mask Replica’ and ‘Lick My Decals Off Baby’ could also be here but it’s the grooves and the warmth of this record that i’m feeling at the moment. ‘Big Eyed Beans From Venus’ is just incredible.
