Breaking News: The perpetrator of this currently-defunct blog, one John Glenn Taylor, has recently been spotted in Oregon. He is operating under the alias Bon Bock (bahn bahk) and was last sighted playing hashtag games on Twitter. Subject has two arms, so he should be considered "armed." However, he poses no danger, so approach with a complete lack of caution.

Sun Zoom Spark


Captain Beefheart was an artist in the purest sense of the word. His creative M.O. was to place imagery-laden poetry over the top of highly complex blues constructions. Like many artists whose works are impenetrable to the general public, his influence is greatest among other artists. RIP 1941-2010





Sun Zoom Spark

Nothing makes it move
From the bottom to the top
Does it start at the bottom
Or does it start at the top?

Magnet draw day from dark
Sun zoom spark
Sun zoom spark

Now which hand's got it?
Bottom, or the top?
Neither hand's got it
It's just got it
Hope it don't stop

Magnet draw day from dark
Sun zoom spark
Sun zoom spark

Think you can uh hold it
Once it start
I don't care who ya are or what
size ya are
I'm gonna magnetize ya

Magnet draw day from dark
Sun zoom spark
Sun zoom spark

It goes every which way
Once it start
Does it start at the bottom
Or does it start at the top?

Magnet draw day from dark
Sun zoom spark
Sun zoom spark

Ohh, don't let it get away
I'm gonna zip up my guitar
'n then when I've gone too far
I'm gonna zip down my guitar

Magnet draw day from dark
Sun zoom spark
Sun zoom spark

(from the album Clear Spot, released in 1972)
