The Mothers of Invention, Frank Zappa's rockin' little teenage combo. I'll bet if they had played at your high school prom, the posters would have all been painted black and the cheerleaders and football stars would never have been crowned as King and Queen. But who really cares anyway? Today that crowd are probably either aging porn stars, smug bankers, or overweight suburbanites. Hotcha!
Frank Zappa's Guitar Work, Percussive Tinkering And Experimental Music Reconstructed In A Brand New Project/Object No.#5 in a series Friday, August 07, 2009
About The Music
This project/object showcases some of Zappa's exceptional guitar playing (both electric and acoustic), and mixes it up with a few synclavier pieces, a live improvised synthesizer excursion, and an electronic/ambient tone poem in the form of the satisfying Cage-inspired 'Beat The Reaper/Waffenspiel.' The proceedings additionally feature a lot of the percussion flourishes and workouts that have always been a hallmark of Frank's compositions. Anything else? Oh yeah, John Lennon and Yoko Ono make a short cameo appearance too. "The way I see it Barry, this should be a very dynamite show." Play it loud and often.
