Captain Beefheart Weekend: panel disscussion on Beefheart's art

Opening Bluecoat's Captain Beefheart Weekend in November 2017, a panel discussion, ‘One nest rolls after another’, looked at Beefheart as visual artist. Following a short film about his first ever art exhibition at Bluecoat in 1972 by its organiser, Lucy Cullen, the panel - comprising Graham Crowley, artist and Beefheart collector, Steve Hardstaff, artist, designer and music encyclopaedia, and Bluecoat Artistic Director, Bryan Biggs - considered Beefheart’s distinctive and enigmatic body of work. The title was from a poem on the poster for the Bluecoat show. Photo: John Johnson.
