What did Mr Zappa think of Christian Vander and the gang at MAGMA?
Is he taking the piss out of them on any of his records?

I've never read anything suggesting FZ was even aware of Magma, but I think both FZ and Vander had a similar work ethic and precise approach to composition, so I'd think they'd hit it off.

It's just that sometimes you hear a certain type of thing melodically on a ZAPPA tune like the little epic chant thing in the song about the Montana dental floss and it reminds you of something MAGMA might do. I can almost hear Frank Zappa saying "Yeah we do that stuff too only we found a better use for it. epic histories about mythological worlds;nonsense, it's really about a guy farming dental floss" I guess Mr Zappa's sarcastic wit has made quite an impression on me to the point where it is hard to look at anything seriously and not hear his voice telling me "No thats not what it is ' it's really......Anyway I find it very hard to believe that he wasn't aware of MAGMA. Both bands seem to daw from the worlds best players surely at some point........ Mabe Dweezil can help us out on this one
