Orange Claw Hammer pay tribute to avant-garde weirdo rocker, Captain Beefheart
“Psychedelic rock meets free jazz meets the blues! The raw power of the music of avant-rock icon Captain Beefheart, as interpreted by sax/guitar/bass/drums outfit Orange Claw Hammer”.
Even though the vast majority of the music is instrumental, much like Beefheart's contemporary Frank Zappa, there's a humour at play, a desire to stimulate and titillate through complex offbeat grooves and a clatter of noise. It's a wonderful, exhilarating recreation of Beefheart's experimentations, improvised and reinterpreted by Kettley and his quartet including the Hammer's live debut of the growling punk funk of 'Ant Man Bee’.
