Why is Captain Beefheart so freaky?

My four-year-old daughter asked me a few days ago: “Why is Captain Beefheart so freaky?” I said: some artists think differently – their brains work in a different way than other people; they put thoughts together that other people wouldn’t. I could see her thinking about this. Since then, she’s mentioned it once or twice. I wonder what will come out of this? I wonder if listening to C.B. from such a young age can have an impact on brain chemistry? Kind of like listening to Mozart, but more… freaky.

    freaky is the right term, i gather. i was just reading the wikipedia article an Frank Zappa, which mentioned that he came out of the “Freak” scene.

    i decided recently that i need more Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, and Tom Waits.
