Frank Zappa was so prolific that it is nearly impossible to perform a representative sample of his work in just one concert. Over one hundred official Zappa albums have been released, alongside countless bootlegs. These range from 60’s psychedelia with the Mothers of Invention, Jazz and Rock material tinged with Zappa’s own inimitable spin, through to orchestral compositions.
Navigating the vast Zappa oeuvre then is no mean feat, but Scotland’s Pygmy Twylyte have embraced the challenge with gusto. Since its inception in 2018, the band has selected a core body of classic material, complemented with a rotating offering of more obscure cuts, and blasted this to delighted audiences across the UK. Officially licensed by the Zappa Trust, Pygmy Twylyte present a must-see event for local music fans.
