Gonzo Multimedia annuncia la pubblicazione nella serie The Lost Broadcasts di alcuni filmati di Captain Beefheart con la Magic Band realizzati per il Beat Club a Brema nel 1972 e rimasti in gran parte inediti. Un assaggio è su YouTube.

In 1972 Captain Beefheart released two albums: The Spotlight Kid and Clear Spot. He also toured the UK and Europe with the Magic Band, even performing two concerts at the Royal Albert Hall as part of an extensive British and European tour. On the 12th April, in the middle of the European leg of the tour Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band stopped off at the Beat Club studios in Bremen to film a session for later transmission. Of the four song session filmed that day only one track has ever been broadcast. The band at that time included: Captain Beefheart (Don Van Vliet), vocals, harp; Rockette Morton (Mark Boston), guitar/bass; Zoot Horn Rollo (Bill Harkleroad), guitar; Orejon (Roy Estrada), bass; Ed Marimba (Art Tripp), drums; Winged Eel Fingerling (Elliot Ingber), guitar.
