Get it straight the new term for so called fans with overt negativity towards any given instance of thw composers work is "Cackling Hens", and speaking of Jimi Hendrix's involvement with We're Only In It For The Money and but also Lumpy Money, thank you very much, your presence is still with us .

I can't say how happy I am that I do not spend much time here at this forum. I rarely see intellectual debate of art. Since the place first went live it has often been overrun by overt adolescent critical analysis of the Zappa Family Trust and Franks work within the Zappa Family Archival Matter In Living Ylem. It's far more perverse than a parent worrying about what little Annie does when she goes to town and all the creeps she hangs around. The relationship fans have with the composers work...., I'm speaking of those with overt negativity towards the composers work, that is something I have never had much tolerance for. The composers work has had far too many levers on it for decades and my tolerance for any overt negativity is slim. I am NOT asking or stating that people have to enjoy the entire big note as I do but more-so heed some respect and let the composers work stand on it's own without all this overt negativity spin doctored into a school yard forum. The truth that the composers work deserves is for it to live in peace and that we all encourage everyone to remove all levers against it. Fans have their overt negativity bow ties too tight.

One more time with a spin
Asperger's Syndrome is a pervasive developmental disorder. Some cases are associated with a genetic disorder. It is now believed that all cases have a genetic component.


Although it is often described as a "mild form of autism," the use of "mild" is inaccurate. It is a higher-functioning autism spectrum disorder, which means people with Asperger's Syndrome have greater ability to function in society, which in turn means it often takes much longer before they are diagnosed correctly and makes it more likely they can hide more of their differences. As with autism, Asperger's Syndrome can range from mild to severe and sometimes certain people with short shorts do matter..

Thanks Arky, should have known I was being tested on FZ lyrical references... :shock:

No, 1979. "Dead Girls" was part of the Shankar album. FZ met him in September 1978 when his band shared a bill with John McLaughlin, and produced Shankar's album in England shortly before starting his 1979 tour there.

FZ played Lather on the radio in 1977. You may be getting confused because "Dead Girls of London" appeared on the bootleg Leatherette along with a bunch of Lather tunes. However, DGoL was recorded after Lather and was never intended to be part of Lather. So pbuzby is correct -- DGoL was played on radio WPIX, NYC, FZ as DJ
1979 09 06 - September 6th 1979.

According to the following article, FZ was producing the album at the same time as the London rehearsals for the 1979 European tour, so it looks like recording sessions took place in January - February '79.

Van Morrison was signed to Warner Bros. at the time, so of course Zappa could not use his performance on the album.

Yes though Van morrisn may have split from warners and went back.or maybe FZ was the only person too ever split from warners :P

VM engineer ended up engineering for FZ so Mick Glossip split from Warners :wink:
