Re: Zappa

I've only got a compilation "Strictly Commercial" which I do like but again he's one of these artists with a massive and bewildering discography that I've never felt compelled to devote that much time too. I might add with Zappa I've always been a bit put off by what seems like a bit of a sneery attitude to pop and rock. Take the Track Dancin' Fool for example. I like the music but the direction of the track - a bloke likes dancin' to disco therefore he's a fuckin' idiot - seems a bit mean spirited to me.

I think I'd like the Hot Rats album judging by the stuff I've heard from it and I seem to recall a mate playing Sheik Yerbouti a lot at one point.

I think the most Zappa I ever heard was in Liverpool in the 80's when he seemed, along with Floyd, to be a cornerstone of parties with lots of local lads getting monumentally stoned.
