Eugene Chadbourne- The Jack and Jim Show Present the Music of Don Van Vilet and Captain Beefheart

Eugene on banjo, guitars and voice, Jimmy Carl singing and playing the drums with special guests Ashwin Batish (sitar), Brian Ritchie (didgeridoo), Chris Turner (harmonicas) and Leslie Ross (bassoon).

Jimmy Carl Black is the original drummer from Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, the "Indian in the group."

Eugene Chadbourne, the doctor, is a cottage industry of his own: jazz with John Zorn, country with Shockabilly and Camper Van Chadbourne disguised as pop.

These two wigged-out, gifted artists bring their own distinct interpretations to Captain Beefheart's incredible work. There's "dropout Boogie" as a flat-out bottleneck rocker, a bluegrass version of "Sure Nuff'N'Yes I Do", a country blues twist on "Willie the Pimp" and a mutant jazzrock version of "Buggy Boogie Woogie." Plenty of non-linear stuff too, as in the thrashing drums, blatting saxaphone and according to one reviewer "the entire Count Basie Orchestra guesting on triangle." Even young Molly Chadbourne gets her moment of fame by reciting Beefheart lyrics in her best Southern voice. Entertaining comics included as well, written by Eugene. "Liner notes are too boring" explained Eugene.

"Pachuco Cadaver" reinvents Spike Jones, Stan Freberg, The Bonzo Dog Band, The Mothers, The Fugs and of course Captain Beefheart all rolled up in one. It may be lo-fi as hell but weekly Creative Loafing says "the duo nails it from the git-go" and adds "coolly hilarious."
