Goons To Play Beefheart Party

Rediscovered avant-garde rockers the Memphis Goons are scheduled

to play the record-release party for the Captain Beefheart five-CD box

set, Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band: Grow Fins, Rarities 1965-

1982 (Revenant, May 18). The May 8 show, at the 33 Degrees record store

in Austin, Texas, will be only the third time the Goons, whose mid-'70s home

recordings were unreleased until three years ago, have ever played live.

"They're the logical choice," Revenant co-owner Dean Blackwood said. "They're

not trying to be like the Magic Band; they're a garage band with odd accents."
