Daddy Would Be So Proud June 13, 2008

Here’s a taste of what you missed (with audio almost as bad as the New Orleans House of Blues’) of the current lineup of Zappa Plays Zappa featuring Dweezil Zappa. I wish I could find a better video of the current band but this gives you an idea at least of how fabulous they are. This video is from Minneapolis a week earlier. Suzy Creamche-, uh I mean Shelia the keyboard/saxophone player is, uh, I mean, her playing was hot. Yeah, whatever. Really, the show was an incredible display of musicianship as they toured the history of Frank Zappa from the early Mothers to the last years. Dweezil is an incredible guitarist, the band is virtuoso and the arrangements are just about perfect. As Loki went up to the stage after to tell Dweezil, poppa would be proud. They finished the New Orleans show with a wild Willy The Pimp so if you missed it (fool) this is as close as you’ll get. At least today you get you your minimum daily requirement of Vitamin Z but ask yourself, have you been getting any lately? No, Zappa, you moron. Never mind.


1. New Orleans News Ladder - June 13, 2008

I posted this on Monday but don’t know if y’all the Ladder. Of course this does perchance explain a few t’ings…
I got into Frank years before ever hearing the funnier stuff. That is what we called him…just Frank. I mean, Uncle Meat was funny but it wasn’t really mainstream and it was considered hard to segway on radio.
Flo and Eddie were just too weird for most of my normal friends.
And of course everyone got Billy Was A Mountain, Music for Guitar and Low Budget Orchestra.
Hell, we (my abby’normal friends) even performed most of Sofa, on a street corner one night in German…a capela…in ebriated. Frank probably would not have approved, but the cops thought it was hilarious. Definitely couldn’t do that again. Well…

I am the heaven
I am the water
Ich bin der Dreck unter deinem Bolzen
I am the dirt beneath your rollers
Ich bin dein geheimer Schmutz und verlorenes Metallgeld
I am your secret smut & lost metal money
Ich bin deine Risse
I am your cracks
Ich bin deine Risse und dunkle Verstecke
I am your cracks & crannies

I am the clouds
I am embroidered
Ich bin der Autor aller Falten und Damask Paspeln
I am the author of all tucks & damask piping
Ich bin der chrome Dinette
I am the Chrome Dinette
Ich bin der chrome Dinette
I am the Chrome Dinette
Ich bin Eier aller Arten
I am eggs of all persuasion

Ich bin alle Tage und Naechte
Ich bin alle Tage und Naechte
I am all days & nights
I am all days & nights

Ich bin hier
Und du bist mein Sofa
I am here
And you are my sofa
Ich bin hier
Und du bist mein Sofa
Ich bin hier
Und du bist mein Sofa
