Tunes, Treats & Torrents – Peach Noise

Ever so often a cover band comes along that absolutely impresses me with their ability to interpret Zappa’s compositions in fresh, bold new ways. The French cover band Peach Noise is one such band.

In the first clip, below, Peach Noise performs a medley from their concert at the Dansoir, Paris, in January, 2009 including excerpts from “Sofa #1″, “Dupree’s Paradise”, “Inca Roads”, “Sleep Dirt”, “Chunga’s Revenge”, “Peaches En Regalia”, “King Kong”, “Let’s Make The Water Turn Black”, “Son Of Mr Green Genes” and “Zoot Allures”.

In this second clip, from their concert at the Cité Joly in Paris, France on July 6th, 2008 Peach Noise performs the tail end of “King Kong/Muffin Man” from the end of the gig.

To get a true feel of Peach Noise‘s incredible abilities, though, listen to this selection taken from their show at Cité Joly, Paris, France, on July 6th, 2008:

    That’s very very nice – but what does that have to do with this particular post?
