Dancing to the Beefheart Beat

I just watched a BBC program called “The artist formally known as Captain Beefheart” and there was this great quote from Matt Groening, creator of the Simpsons and a man with excellent musical tastes!!

He said

For some of us out there this beat bam bam bam bam bam bam (beating fist on hand in 4/4 beat) the factory rhythm, the rhythm that we all march to is very very tedious and one of the great things about Captain Beefheart’s music is that it breaks this rhythm (repeats 4/4 rhythm)…. it’s badebabba badebaba – you know it does all that other stuff and it gets away from that.
