It's been a while since there was a Zappa thread, & what better day for one than his birthday, which happens to fall on the Mayan Nopocalypse. I'll get things started with "Penguin/Stockholm In Bondage".

These clips are the shit!
Never seen that St Etienne clip, my god I love his playing.
Hugo, that Palais Royale show was one of my first bootlegs!

The lineup reminds me of one of my favorite Zappa moments, Holidays in Berlin/Inca Roads/Easy Meat from Tengo Na Minchia Tanta:

Instead of making yet another Zappa thread: One of my favorite pieces of music is going to be performed live! 

THE MODERN DAY COMPOSER REFUSES TO DIE: FRANK ZAPPA’S ‘200 MOTELS’ (FINALLY) GETS WORLD PREMIERE

 
 
 
This "Town is a sealed Tuna Sandwich Bolero" and "She Painted up her face/Janets big Dance Number/Half a dozen provactive squats/Mysterioso/Shove it righ"t in are two my favorite musical monents of all time. Andrew, I'm really jealous it's only happening in LA. Can I crash on your couch.

I don't know what the score is... the record is (and is that the full orchestral score? Or just "the soundtrack to the movie"? I don't know without looking it up. But I bet there's no rock band, just from looking at the L.A. Philharmonic announcement. I mean, they'd mention it I would think...)

Check this out:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/200_Motels#History

 

Zappa began writing a film for his new lineup called 200 Motels, and the band debuted on Zappa's next solo album Chunga's Revenge (1970),[6] which was produced as a preview of the film.[7] Zappa also met conductor Zubin Mehta. They arranged a May 1970 concert where Mehta conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic augmented by a rock band. This material served as a second preview of the film. According to Zappa, the music was mostly written in motel rooms while on tour with The Mothers of Invention. Some of it was later featured in 200 Motels.[8] Although the concert was a success, Zappa's experience working with a symphony orchestra was not a happy one.[9] His dissatisfaction became a recurring theme throughout his career; he often felt that the quality of performance of his material delivered by orchestras was not commensurate with the money he spent on orchestral concerts and recordings.[10]

Yeah -- I read that... but the announcement of the L.A. Philharmonic page doesn't say anything about a rock band. And if it were Dweezil in particular, I have a pretty strong guess they would have.

So what the "orchestral score" is... I'm not 100% clear on. That is, the orchestral score they're performing. Could be with ZPZ. I wouldn't get tickets banking on it, though.

Hadn't even considered it would performed without the rock band, they really can't pull off songs like Mystery Roach and Magic Fingers without one. I hope they don't go for jsut the orchestral score, it would be such a loss. ZPZ would pull it off great. Flo and Eddie reprising their vocals. Jimmy Carl Black! Whoo!

I'll sleep on your floor man!

...I've overstimulated myself.
