Eight ’88 Ways To Cruise For Burgers

One of my favourite FZ tracks has to be Cruising For Burgers — the ZINY version that is. Back in ’06, he who goes by the name of Magic Fingers had delighted me with a CD consisting of unofficial ’88-tour CFB Variations for my birthday — the best one ever as birthday parties go, I should add. Bliss.

Fast forward to the present: along comes Muxtape. Urban’s been at it, so has Balint — who am I not to follow suit?

Presenting Eight ’88 Ways To Cruise For Burgers. Disclaimer: the tracks offered are not downloadable, and have been in tape circulation for years. Enjoy them, and then buy The Real Thing™ — as if you hadn’t already…

    Is it me, or does the last one from Genoa sound perfunctory? Knowing that almost everyone (except Frank and Mike) was a-hatin’ Scott and that it was their last show before the big vote to disband may be coloring my perception.

    Also, after a four-month hiatus, KHUM resumed a Zappa show on Friday nights. It’s called Zen Through Zappa and is hosted by Mark Scatchard.

    I did a little write-up here:


    Now I have the best of both worlds: I can be home working on the newspaper Friday nights (without driving all the way to Ferndale) while listening to Frank music programmed by a living-breathing humanoid. It’s great!

    Mark wasn’t timid; he started out last night’s show with Catholic Girls, then hit a lot of the the cool FZ moments, with Montana, Peaches, Pygmy Twylyte, Muffin Man and more.

    Thanks Mark. Thanks Barry. Oh, and thanks Frank.

    I especially liked the Bremen Burger.
    Very filling . . . burp! Excuse me.
