I am in the throes of a FULL ON Frank Zappa kick - the most obsessive one I've ever had since getting into his stuff 20 years ago.

I'm actually working on obtaining his ENTIRE catalogue from 1966 up to the present day posthumous releases put out by the Zappa Family Trust.

The man had MUSIC in his blood, sweat and tears! His output and the sheer intelligence and humor of his body of work is rivaled by few others.

I'll post more later about specific stuff that's decorating my cookies currently, but are there any other fans of this ICONIC artist?

Favorite Zappa track of all time (for no particular reason): "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?"

Have you ever seen his famous interview on CNN's Crossfire from the 80's, during the height of the PMRC controversy? I'll post it if you haven't...

I saw it years ago and I read the text again recently in his autobiography, but I wouldn't mind seeing it again. Smile

Speaking of "Pee"...Joe's Garage is on my "must have" list and will be obtained VERY SOON. Manic

Some of my fave tracks:

Wind Up Working in a Gas Station
You Are What You Is
Baby Snakes
I'm So Cute
Broken Hearts Are for Assholes
Tinseltown Rebellion
Billy the Mountain
Magic Fingers...

and the list goes on and on and on... Skippy

Thanks that is classic

Gov't can't protect people. They can enforce consequence for violating the law but are we talking murder here? no.

We are talking about musicians and music. If a kid is swayed into incest because of a song the problem originates in the family that has so ill-equipped a person to be prone to have huge incest issues after hearing a song.

Let the individual and the supportive of community of the individual guide the child but don't let the gov't do your thinking for you...

Great interview

My friend, every New Year has to listen to Joe's Garage BEFORE any other
music. Sometimes it takes him weeks to find the time to sit down and listen
to Joe's Garage all the way through, uniterupted. And no other music
is played until that has been accomplished! Dee deedee

He's a Zappa freak. I can dig some of Zappa's stuff, but some
of it is too arty for the sake of being arty..

I've personally never seen Zappa's stuff that way. To me, he is the antithesis of pretense, and I think you have to be a pretentious twat to be "arty for the sake of being arty", IMO. His weirdest stuff is so bizarre not because he's trying to be arty, but more so because it was so completely random and improvised and Frank just put a frame around it to give it context.

Wow! I've never seen that! Lofton was a TOTAL condescending asshole! He stooped to name calling and insults right off the bat! He had many of the same characteristics of SO MANY of the juvenille posters on so many message boards. The guy wouldn't even let frank finish answering his stupid questions! oh RLY?

Thanks for the post, Stig.

For me, my favourite has to be Nanook Rubs it... in fact Apostrophe is my favourite album. My second favourite song has to be "I'm the Slime" so much truth to the words.

Hey, while we're on the subject of this guy, everyone do me a favor:



I've always appreciated Zappa as an artist and as a visionary
voice, just never gotten into him. I've tried a few times and never
quite been able to do it. I think if I could get recommendations from
you guys that might help. As you might guess, that's where you all come
in.



What are some of your favorite releases? Knowing my tastes, which
releases do you think I might like best. I usually run by the used CD
stores pretty frequently, so if you could give me some suggestions as
to where to start, I'd keep my eyes open next time I run past those
places. Like I said, I've always wanted to like Zappa, just never had the motivation to do so. So ... shoot!

Get Sheik Yerbouti. That one is a classic from start to finish. Troggish



For a more fuzz drenched 70's sound though, I would suggest Over-Nite Sensation and Apostrophe (').





Those three will give you a GREAT start! Big Smile

The great thing about Sheik is the word play of the title and the fact that he proudly displays his unibrow on the cover hahaha

Perhaps a playlist ala Tour De Zappa needs to be compiled by our own Trog! I wonder if there is alot of Zappa on seeqpod

Yeah man, I'll make a list here of songs that I feel are "essential" out of the material I am familiar with thus far. Although there is still a TON of material I have yet to hear! I currently have about 15 of his albums, and that's not even halfway there! Afraid

Here's my suggested beginning playlist for the Zappa-curious as it stands right now (bearing in mind that sometimes he has a couple different versions of some songs on different albums, and some of these songs do contain explicit satirical content dealing with sex/profanity/government/religion for anyone concerned with such things):

Son of Suzy Creamcheese
Call Any Vegetable
Big Leg Emma
Who Needs the Peace Corps?
Concentration Moon
What's the Ugliest Part of YOur Body?
Mother People
Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance
Electric Aunt Jemima
Magic Fingers
My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama
Billy the Mountain
Eddie Are You Kidding?
Peaches En Regalia
Camarillo Brillo
I'm the Slime
Dirty Love
Fifty-Fifty
Zomby Woof
Dinah-Moe Humm
Montana
Don't Eat the Yellow Snow/Nanook Rubs It/Saint Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast/Father O'Blivion
Cosmic Debris
Excentrifugal Forz
Apostrophe
Uncle Remus
Stink-Foot
You Are What You Is
Wind Up Working in a Gas Station
The Torture Never Stops
Panty Rap
Punky's Whips
Jazz Discharge Party Hats
Titties 'n' Beer
I Have Been in You
Flakes
Broken Hearts Are for A**holes
I'm So Cute
Jones Crusher
Baby Snakes
Tryin' to Grow a Chin
City of Tiny Lites
Dancin' Fool
Jewish Princess
Wild Love
Yo' Mama
Joe's Garage
Catholic Girls
Crew Slut/Fembot in a Wet T-Shirt/On the Bus
Why Does it Hurt When I Pee?
Stick it Out
Sy Borg
The Closer You Are
In France
Ya Hozna
Sharleena
Truck Driver Divorce
Stevie's Spanking
Baby, Take Your Teeth Out
Be in My Video
Frogs With Dirty Little Lips
Whippin' Post
G-Spot Tornado
Elvis Has Just Left the Building
Planet of the Baritone Women
Stairway to Heaven

That oughta get you started, earthlings. Troggish

I LOVE ZAPPA. He was definately in his own league, a league a few notches higher than most. Incredible creativity, dare I say genius.
