Henry Rollins’ Tribute to Frank Zappa

If you notice, Fanatics, tonight is a bit of a concept show. It’s all Zappa, all night. We take this Saturday’s broadcast to do this because on 12-04-93, Frank Zappa passed away. I know, it’s not the happiest occasion to celebrate the man, his music and his considerable intellect but I wanted to do it, so here we are.

It was at the 4th of december at the KCRW radio where Henry Rollins has his own programme – the two-hour show can be listened there online (the setlist is also there!). Have fun, Fanatics!

21 Burnt Weeny Sandwiches

The Idiot Bastard:

20 artists were asked to condense the Mothers Of Invention’s Burnt Weeny Sandwich album down to 5 minutes. Some succeeded. The results were handed over to Pete Brunelli, who produced a megamix – an excerpt from which provides most of the soundtrack to this ‘promo video’ for the 21 Burnt Weeny Sandwiches CD that Cordelia Records will unleash shortly to mark the 40th anniversary of the Mothers’ album.
