This is ghey

I’m currently chez my dad for the Christmas holidays and because we share similar tastes in a lot of music, he often records gigs of Sky channels for me, seeing as I don’t have Sky. One such gig was Frank Zappa live in New York from 1984. The whole film (Entlitled Does Humour Belong in Music? is fantastic, mixing as it does concert footage and short interview snippets with the outspoken one himself. The band are incredible performers, combining absolute mastery of their instruments and an ability to act and goof around on stage like children.

This clip of He’s So Gay demonstrates perfectly what I mean. Bobby Martin on keys and bassist Scott Thunes are really yukking it up.

There’s just nobody like Zappa – sigh.
