|DRUMBO (Captain Beefheart / Magic Band Drummer)
CITY OF REFUGE
NEW & SEALED VINYL LP
The twelve John “Drumbo” French compositions on this album are performed by him with his former Magic Band members Zoot Horn Rollo, Rockette Morton, Ella Guru and John Thomas. He assembled this unique group in 2008 specifically to record these tracks, but none of the material was ever performed by them in public.
Since these recordings were made, John toured several times with the Magic Band to great critical acclaim. He also completed his book “Beefheart: Through The Eyes Of Magic”, which is a definitive account of life with Captain Beefheart from inside the group during its heyday.
