Thing Fish ??? unclassifiable epic that is either absurdly brilliant or the worstest piece of shyte ever perpetrated on record. Folks who say this is their favorite Zappa album tend to be very weird people!!!! This is probably Frank's version of a "Metal Machine Music", if you make it this far you are beyond hardcore!


You're correct in comparing TF to MMM as thee album that splits hardcore fans down the middle. Personally, I love it, it was one of the first 80s period Zappa I bought, so I heard the 'original' versions later. Hilarious dialogue and an absurd plot make me "straighten up in dat chair and pay ATTENTIUM."

I'm still trying to find a copy of the Hustler mag with the Thing Fish pictorial.
