The Fantasy Of Reality
Whimsical, playful & tongue-in-cheek - Cotton delivers a psychedelic journey that will delight Beefheart devotees while bringing plenty of new ideas to the table across the sprawling 22 track, 66-minute runtime. 'Trout Mask Replica' cover designer Cal Schenkel collaborates once again as he returns to contribute to the internal artwork of the album to continue the Captain Beefheart canon into the 2020's.
Across the decades, the Magic Band's power & influence has only grown in might & the cult following of 1969's 'Trout Mask Replica' still excites fans to this day, in part due to the mystery & enigma of members such as Antennae Jimmy Semens (aka Jeff Cotton). In 1967, Cotton was discovered by Don Van Vliet - Captain Beefheart himself, replacing Ry Cooder on guitars. He then went one to help craft some of Captain Beefheart & the Magic band's most vibrant recordings & later contributed to the cult band MU.
Now blending together musical strands such as jazz, delta blues, Hawaiian & the avant-garde to create a melting pot of ideas, Cotton astonishes fans with his comeback.
The magic will continue on 'The Fantasy of Reality' on CD on & the 2LP release to follow later in the year.
