I’m not a huge Frank Zappa fan. This is not because I don’t like his music I just don’t know it very well. I offer no excuse for this. Many moons ago I knew nothing of him while now I own a greatest hits compilation, so, progress. And I love everything on that compilation CD I’ve just never made any effort to expand my knowledge.
Some will read this and consider me a heretic. Then they’ll see the song I chose as a personal favourite and they’ll cringe even more deriding me as an unimaginative, commercial radio loving git of some sort. What can I say, it’s a catchy tune. I fall at your feet in mercy oh great Zappa worshippers, but is it not better to know Frank a bit than to not know Frank at all?
Let’s kick off the weekend with “Joe’s Garage” from the 1979 Frank Zappa album “Joe’s Garage Act I”.
