...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

FRANK ZAPPA REVIEW

Frank Zappa

Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention – The Lost Broadcast: The Full Performance DVD

Review by G. W. Hill

In 1968 Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention filmed a band rehearsal at the Beat Club in Germany. Part of that rehearsal appeared on German television later. This DVD has the entire rehearsal. It’s filmed in black and white and does have some issues with audio drop outs and other problems. Still, the show (nearly 80 minutes in length) is well worth having and watching despite that. Not only that, but the problem is made clear right on the back cover, so the buyer has been forewarned. The DVD gives you the option of watching just the show that appeared on television, too. This set is quite cool, really. It’s interesting both from an archival point of view, and for the entertainment value.
