Frank Zappa – My Guitar & Interview

In this fan-made video, Frank Zappa’s 1969 7″ Extended Version of “My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama” is combined with a Zappa interview by Bill Hewey on “What’s It All About” – recorded for the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. For Public Service (Religious) Broadcast, August 1979. Some really, really weird takes on Zappa’s point of view…

    A religious hatchet job that damns with faint praise.
    With all the available footage of Frank walking around -
    they choose ONLY the clips of him limping.

    My creator tells me this shit sucks.

    And August 1979 was smack dab in the middle of Sheik Yerbouti and Joe’s Garage era- a successful time for FZ. Why the Chunga and JABFLA tracks?

    A quote from Danny:

    I thought the very same thing, Danny, especially considering the interview was, as you said “smack dab in the middle of Sheik Yerbouti and Joe’s Garage era”. Perhaps the Chunga and JABFLA tracks were “safest” Zappa tracks these Presbyterian’s could find? It certainly wouldn’t be the first time that individuals or groups had attempted to usurp Zappa’s work for their own purposes.

    More than likely someone’s “weird uncle” was a fringe Zappa fan and let the Presbyterians use his LPs for background music!
    The piece doesn’t really give the uninitiated any clue as to who FZ was. Out of context quotes, lazy research, out of date music samples…..makes one wonder what point was being made? Probably another “Why We Don’t Need Art In The US” statement by the soon to be ‘Moral Majority’ leaders.
