Captain Beefheart Weekend: psychedelic Liverpool walk route

As part of Bluecoat's Captain Beefheart Weekend in November 2017 a walking tour, 'Follow the Yellow Brick Road', visited Beefheart’s Liverpool - sites of venues he played at - and other resonant locations relating to the city’s psychedelic imaginary. This psychogeographical meander through Liverpool city centre started at Bluecoat, where Beefheart had exhibited his art in 1972, and took in sites such as the Stadium, Rotters club and Probe Records’ first shop.
