Re: LOW: Most Experimental Popular Album of the 20 new [re: bowiefanpeter]  

FZ was signed to many record labels and had a variety of distribution deals in his 30 year career. In fact, I can't think of that many major labels that he hadn't been signed to at one point or another. It's confusing keeping track...

Rykodisc released his back catalogue beginning in the mid-eighties and re-released it again in 1995 with a few bonus tracks.

Which Zappa recordings do you own, BPF?



A wrong assumption of myself on the part of you.

Thank goodness for that then.

Re: stuck in a loop new [re: JonnyManic]  

"I think everyone here has seen the point I'm making, the fact that you haven't is simply an example of how mentally simple you really are."

Did I say how funny you were?

"I'd suggest that you never look to a career in law if you think you've proved anything and that, if you considewr that Zappa is the most experimental artist ever you consider investigating real experimental music by the likes of Karlheinz Stockhausen, Iannis Xenakis, Harry Partch, John Cage, all composers and performers whose experimentation in musical styles, tonality, trexture and performance outstrip any achievement of Zappa's on the level of expanding musical theory beyond traditional forms. Whether they are more or less innovative is, as I've said, a matter of opinion. Their contribution to the body of musical theory is not."

You don't know what you're talking about. I suggest you listen to Zappa's music, since you've obviously haven't heard it, or probably only an album or two at the very least...

"I'd suggest that you have no idea what you're talking about other than the fact that you like Zappa and are aware of the fact that he has a reputation as a pioneer. Therefore you bluster, you provide a few arbitrary lists but have no central thesis other than trying to be an annoying cunt. Well, you've well and truly suceeded on one level!"

You have to understand that facts provide proof. But I know, for you facts are a baffling concept.

"I'd also suggest that you have no friends."


You suggest wrong, as usual.

Btw, here's another fact: did you know Zappa had the prototype 16 track recorder in 1969 that he used to record his materpiece, Hot Rats?

It's like saying, "hey, you should look into Picasso, Kandinsky, Gaugin, Matisse" and hearing in reply, "You don't know what you're talking about. I suggest you see more of Nature_Boy's bowie album covers"

No offence, Nature_Boy.

No, it's not. I was responding to your assertion that those composers outstripped Zappa achievements. And that's not true in the least.

PP,

You must be blind.

You'd do better to simply admit you have no idea who they are or what the contribution to musical theory that they made was. Or you could pretend you do know and find some facts on them on a search engine! Go Spot, Go!

I won't even bother here. I just suppose that when you put so much effort into being a philistine, being a twat comes naturally.

You'd do better to simply admit that Frank Zappa is the most innovative/experiemental artist of the 20th Century. And I wasn't saying that Ives, Cage, etc. didn't contribute to music. I know who they are but hte problem is that you're an assumption whore and hence you make me laugh my ass off consistently. What I'm saying is that the amount of innovations/progressions/experimentations/ etc., that Zappa indulged in and created or helped to create, far "outstrips" their accomplishments, that it's not even debatable.

"I won't even bother here. I just suppose that when you put so much effort into being a philistine, being a twat comes naturally."

It's nice of you to respond to someone else's posts for them.

Well nothing with you is 'debatable' because all you do is stick your fingers in your ears and shout 'I'mrightI'mrightI'mright' over and over again.

Oh babe, I'm going nowhere
Nowhere's where I want to be
And babe, I'm good for nothing
Nothing is good enough for me

Re: [re: NoControl]  

Name me at least 20 artists that have been influenced by Zappa, then we'll talk.

I will eat - YOUR - SOUL!
