Desire Caught by the Tail is the third solo album by Adrian Belew, released in 1986.
Unlike its two predecessors Lone Rhino and Twang Bar King (both of which were albums of art-pop songs with experimental stylings) Desire Caught By the Tail is an entirely instrumental and experimental record. It was recorded by Belew on his own, using multitracked treated electric guitar, guitar synthesizer and assorted percussion instruments.
Desire Caught by the Tail takes its name from the play 'Le Désir attrapé par la queue', written by Pablo Picasso. The album is in part inspired by Picasso, with both the sound and the composition style being more abstract and harsh than much of Belew's other repertoire.
