Lick My Decals, Baby is Captain Beefheart’s fourth album, initially released in 1970 with the Magic Band naturally in tow. This was reportedly the big man’s favourite of his own records: not coincidentally, it is also one of his most experimental, sounding something like a broken blues band from hell. Classic stuff. 180g vinyl reissue on Rhino.
9/10 Jack Customer review, 9th April 2016Coming off of the liberating heels of 1970's Trout Mask Replica, Don Van Vliet first changed the name of his band from "His Magic Band" to "The Magic Band" and proceeded to record another tight, vigorous, arrhythmic sonic landscape. Though this album doesn't have quite the free form feeling of its predecessor (which included tape recorder chants, false starts, off microphone chatter, and lots of interesting other random tidbits), it stretches the boundaries of rock music in much the same manner.
