Profile
Fast 'n' Bulbous is a band infused with the spirit of Captain Beefheart, formed in 2001 by Phillip Johnston (alto saxophone) and Gary Lucas (guitar). Lucas, who played in Beefheart's band in the 80s, provides a direct connection, and Johnston contributes horn arrangements that are very much in keeping with Van Vliet's idiom. They are joined by Jesse Krakow (bass), Richard Dworkin (drums), Rob Henke (trumpet), Joe Fiedler (trombone), and Dave Sewelson (baritone saxophone).
