  1. This is the Zappa Zone


    There are a billion components of Zappa, the man, and his music!

    Let's hear them.

    :bowdown::bowdown:;):drool::drool::) :p

    I got the 1986 CD Thing-Fish playing. The lyrics from "Prologue" Part I:




    Once upon a time, musta been 'round october, few years back, in one o' dose top secret lab-motories de gubbnint keep stashed away underneath virginia, an evil prince, occasion'ly employed as a p
    Ime theatrical criticizer set to woikin' on a plot fo de systematic genocidical remove'lance of all unwanted highly-rhythmic individj'lls an' sissy-boys!

    De cocksucker done whiffed up a secret potium... an' right 'long wid it, de atrocious idea dat what he been boilin' up down deahhhh jes' mights be de final solutium to de white main's 'boidennn'
    Yo' acquire my drift...

    Well, he were sure he had a good thing goin'... but, dere was always de possobility dat somethin' might fuck up, so, he planned to have a little test, jes' to check it all out befo' he dump't it
    E wattuh supply.

    Sho'tly denafter, wit high-level gubnint co-robberatium, he arranged to have a good-will visit to san quentim, 'long wit some country-westin mu- zishnin's, 'n sprinkle a little bit of it on some
    E boys in deahhh (since dey done used a few of 'em befo' when dey was messin' wit de zyph'liss).

    So, heah dey come wit de potium, dump'nit all in de mash potatoes!

    Den dey wen' up to de warden's office fo' some hot toddy, watchin' a little football while dey's waitin' to see what gone happen!

    Fact o' de matter were: nothin' happened, so dey went off'n dribbled it in a special shipnint of galoot co-log-nuh dat went out 'bouts november!

    Next thing y'know, fagnits be droppin' off like flies...'long wit a large number of severely-tanned individj'lls, pre-zumnably of hay'chen extrakment!

    But not de boys in de rest home! oh no! mixin' de shit wit de mash potatoes done smoothed it out a little, so's it wouldn't kill yo' ass, but, it sho' would make y'ugly! 'n ef y'was already ugly
    D make yo ass mean 'n ugly...'n ef you was already mean 'n ugly, it'd turn ya into a strange, unknown kreetchuh, never befo' seen on broadway!^lthass right! it'd turn ya' into a 'mammy nun'! hea
    E a potato...lips like a duck...big ol' hands, puffin' up! big ones! science! me-jev'l re-lij-mus costumery all over yo' body! yow! oh yeah! mmmm-hmmm!

    Somehow, I totally missed seeing Zappa live back in the olden days. But I seen Dweezil live several weeks ago and it was a kick-ass concert. Played all Frank Zappa songs

    Zappa is epic and crazy as shit.
     
  9. I often say that FZ is the greatest guitarist of all time. I may have almost that many of his CD's. I haven't counted. :cool:
     
  10. Since someone asked in a different thread which Frank Zappa songs are the best to get started with, I thought I'd share that list here also. :bowdown::bowdown:

    I'll list most of my favorites, starting with my most favorites first. Just a reminder that any music posted on OT to be truly appreciated should be heard on a good stereo. Also, his songs should not be questioned too much, because of course, the lyrics get pretty silly and far-out.

    This album was perfect when I used to get high many years ago.

    [y]anAMdoKz1-0[/y]

    Don't listen to all of these songs on one day. Space them out and savor them. :wiggle:

    [y]J8G5jXpwRik[/y]

    This album and these tracks are best IMO only on a single day.

  15. :) I'm so happy I didn't miss seeing him. To see him, I made my greatest effort to attend of all the ones I saw of my favorite musicians. If I hadn't, my life would have been incomplete, and I would never have been able to persevere!

    I didn't go to a whole lot of big concerts, but I saw the Styx Paradise Theatre concert at the Cow Palace in South San Francisco. I'll have to say that was easily the best concert of all of the ones I saw. I had this really cool brown corduroy jacket that I was wearing at that time, and a young girl stole it right off my back after the concert finished! I was pretty drunk, but she grabbed it in just a second or two. :rofl:

    I went with my sister to one with her long-time boyfriend, and a good friend of theirs, who owned a good-sized sailboat. We sailed on the San Francisco Bay to Candlestick Park and rowed into watch the Rolling Stones comeback tour concert in 1981, I think it was. George Thorogood & the Destroyers opened. The massive fireworks display afterwards were more special for me, because my sister was friend's with the Stones' pyrotechnician, Tom Stava.

    Tom was at my sister's house that year on the Fourth of July, and he was going to do a fireworks display in her backward. I was planning to go, but I got too drunk and decided not to go and to just keep driving when I got to my sister's house.

    I also went with a friend to see Rush at A Day on the Green at the Oakland Coliseum. I can't remember who opened for them. Rush is my second favorite band.

    I saw Loverboy in a small nightclub in 1982. I used to just love that club, but they tore down the mall (The Old Mill in Mountain View) it was in.

    I saw Boz Skaggs on the Fourth of July about three or four years ago with my wife, and that one is called the annual KaBoom Festival at piers 30 and 32 in San Francisco.

    The only other two concerts I went to are two different shows in the early 80s by Frank Zappa. I went to one at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, and I don't remember where the other one was. I was probably too high that time. I remember his performances from then though. It was interesting how they had many different instruments on stage that they would grab and play. I think it was a hushed crowd or should I say awe-stricken audience. :drool::drool::drool:

    This is a rare video of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and Frank Zappa at the Fillmore East in 1971.

    He was a very hard worker and even though all of his early stuff was good, he didn't give up on many ideas, continuing to refine them, until they were way beyond awesome.

    It is not well-known that Frank was fairly active in politics, and I 've often wondered what his message was in an interview he gave on Crossfire in 1986. And for quite awhile since I learned about this, I've wondered what his message was about fascism in our country. Does anyone know or venture to guess about it?

    Since obviously no one large political group is going to give much, continuing to make more and more laws to satisfy ever increasing special interests groups will before long become onerous to simply understand. Isn't just trying to please everyone also a type of fascism and not merely socialism?

    This is the part of the interview I'm talking about, but you can watch the whole 21 minute interview, if you want. It's a really great one! [​IMG]

    Here's the whole interview:

    http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&VideoID=12593428

    Zappa: The biggest threat to America today is not communism; it's moving America towards a fascist theocracy and everything that has happened during the Reagan administration. Is steering us right down that pipe
    Zappa: When you have a government that prefers a certain moral code derived from a certain religion and that moral code turns into legislation to suit one certain religious point of view and if that code happens to be very, very right wing almost toward Attila the Hun.
    Lofton: Well then you are an anarchist. Every form of civil government is based on some kind of morality, Frank.
    Zappa: Morality in terms of behavior-not in terms of theology
