Don Van Vliet contributed to the Tubes' "Now" album. The Tubes also performed Van Vliet's 'Gimme That Harp Boy' in concert in 1976.

from The Tubes website:
"My Head Is My Only House" is not the first time the Tubes have covered a Captain Beefheart track. During their 1976 show at the Shrine in Los Angeles they played his "Gimme Dat Harp Boy" as a prelude to "Love Will Keep Us Together".
