Captain Beefheart was god damn amazing. To say he wasn't "that good" and then to mention Throbbing Gristle is a very audacious statement for you to make. Throbbing Gristle wasn't even a band unless you consider a congregated group of people that consists of pedophiles and transsexuals then yes, they were beyond a band.
edit: Tadao, you better not yell at me for saying this.
