Not ONLY that but I'm in the process of recording a song with my ever congenial brother that is OH-SO-OPERA-LIKE. <br>(if I could reach you, I'd hurt you)<br>

[quote author=MentalTossFlycoon link=board=rant;num=1045375129;start=30#36 date=02/22/03 at 00:19:00]<br>I can't say for certain, but I get the feeling that Frank had a bit of a shine for Spike Jones as well. Whenever I hear Jones' versions of "Dance of the Hours" or "The William Tell Overture," I always think of Frank.[/quote]<br><br><br>I have to agree. Another thing that reminds me of FZ is "Rhapsody From Hunger(y)", for the Stravinsky reference (the characters named Igor and Petrushka).

My brother said once, "Why can't mom just HIT us like other moms?".

The "Opera" part of "Teen-Age Prostitute" still makes me giggle.<br><br> Along with many parts of 200 Motels.<br><br>"This Towwwwn is like a sealed Tuna sandwich-With-a-wrap-per"<br>& the whole of both "A Nun-Suit Painted on Some Old Boxes"& "Dew On the Newts We Bought" -High Comedy that!<br><br>Frank also wanted to probe the value of say, the "raspberry" noise(as Spike Jones used it, "a funny, but equally valid"musical element) as contrasted with "serious musical" elements & come up with up a compostional whole...I think, or something like that (Damn, I'm drunk, & I never had music theory?! Does art school count? Do they still write record reviews like that?)<br><br>Jes' tell me i'm fulla shit, I got a license to be an arsehole!<br>JW Foust<br><br>There's no punkin gnashing it's teeth yet, THATS the one I want!<br>

MTF-she does have stories! Books and books of fan mail from then too. She STILL runs her own school of music and conducts a small chorus and symphony(non profit) even though she's  handicapped and 76.Feisty old girl. ;D
