Captain Beefheart & Magic Band Riding Some Kind Of Unusual Skull Sleigh US box set
Tracklisting / Additional Info: Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart was a visual artist before he was a musician. As a young child he drew serious accolades for his animal sculptures and was offered a scholarship to study in Europe. His parents declined; and while continuing to create in the visual medium, Van Vliet turned his attention to music, within ten years forming the first incarnation of the legendary experimental outfit Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band. The following 15 years are music history.

But in 1983 Van Vliet retired from music to pursue painting and drawing, the focus of this extraordinary boxed set. Riding Some Kind Of Unusual Skull Sleigh, named after a painting the artist completed in 1987, provides an opportunity to own one of his original, signed colour etchings.

Executed on paper and catalogued as Untitled (Self-Portrait), the work measures approximately 6" x 9". The paper itself measures approximately 8" x 10". Van Vliet produced only 1500 copies of the piece, one for each individually numbered copy of this editon. A deluxe 9" x 12" x 2" slipcase carefully houses the etching as well as two museum-quality books, a CD and a DVD.

The first book, entitled Riding Some Kind Of Unusual Skull Sleigh (88 pages) is a monograph of sorts, containing an essay by art historian Ben Watson and full-colour reproductions of 60 of Van Vliet's paintings and drawings, some of them previously unpublished.

The second book, entitled Splinters (96 pages), features portrait photos of the artist by Anton Corbijn, along with a selection of personal archival material supplied by Don and Jan Van Vliet, including family snapshots, newspaper clippings, drawings and sketches. None of this material has been seen before.

The CD features the artist reading 11 of his previously unreleased spoken-word pieces, which are also reprinted in the Splinters book. Spanning 1977-1999, these readings have been personally selected by Don and Jan Van Vliet. The DVD features Some YoYo Stuff, a 1994 filmed observation by Anton Corbijn.
