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.

With guitars, keyboards, saxes and multiple vocalists Scotland’s Pygmy Twylyte, navigate the Zappa cuts – by selecting a core body of classic material, complemented with a rotating offering of more obscure tracks, and blasted this to delighted audiences across the UK. Pygmy Twylyte has a (stink)foot planted in the camp of several of Zappa’s most memorable touring line-ups. Head down to nod along to rock numbers, lose count during jazzy interludes (after all, it’s not dead – it just smells funny) and evade the infamous Frunobulax!
