WILD RUMPUS: ELECTRONICA, COUNTRY AND DUB - IT'S A MEETING OF MINDS

“We’re in the presence of greatness here. Gary Lucas cut his teeth in Captain’s Beefheart’s Magic Band and has done too much since to recount here. This sees Gary hooking up with Colleen Murphy, aka DJ Cosmo, who holds the distinction of being one of the only outside to play at David Mancuso’s Loft, the very birthplace of clubbing. With roots in psychedelica and disco, this is one hell of a marriage…at last the Beefheart connection rears in club-world and it is indeed magical.”
