Frank Zappa

Masked Turnip Cyclophony / The Lost Broadcast (cd / dvd pre-orders)


Masked Turnip Cyclophony is a CD containing 25 slices of pre-fame musical buffoonery from Frank Zappa's early days as a studio operator for the Pal Studio. Illuminating aspects of Zappa's later recorded output, FZ's contribution to these tracks was either as musician, singer, writer or producer or a combination of some or all of these roles.

The Lost Broadcast features the full, unedited version of a performance by Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention recorded on 6th October 1968 for legendary German TV show The Beat-Club. The DVD (ntsc, region 0, b&w) comprises a filmed rehearsal of Zappa and the Mothers performing one continuous improvisation, but is punctuated by Zappa directing the band to play the opening themes of well-known pieces including King Kong, A Pound For A Brown On The Bus, Sleeping In A Jar and Uncle Meat.

Pre-order for 21st April shipping.
