In the 'going to meet the man' chapter of Ben Watson's 'Poodle play' there is mention of a letter to FZ from Terry Gilliam. FZ also refers to Gilliam's 'Brazil' as one of his favorite films.

Terry Gilliam even wrote ''a personal FZ memory'' in the booklet for The Strictly Commercial album:<br><br>"I wonder what songs Frank is teaching the angels in heaven right now...Good luck God, you have your hands full this time...''<br><br>I've always like this piece....

Hi,

I would think that FZ might think these guys too stuck up for his tastes, but I am not sure, that he had never heard such goldies as "Randy Rachel", and the nice song on the cross, and some things that did make the rounds in the LA area thanks to a silly doctor on a radio station ... who had the biggest collection of funnie music ever.
