This pic is of a window display at Music Millennium, an iconic music store in Portland, Oregon. Zappa's Grubby Chamber friend Mark Lovelace, who sent in the shot (thanks, Mark!) said they also had a large mural which reads "Keep Portland Weird!"
If anyone can do it, Frank can.
However, I can't. And as I mentioned last week, this is the last ZGC as we know it.
Update: Thanks, Barry, for helping tell the world of the show's demise. I guess I better try to do clean segues tonight in case people from Belgium are listening. BTW, if anyone wants to hear the groovy promo MP3 for tonight's show, write me at email@example.com and I'll e-mail it to you.
For the final Zappa's Grubby Chamber, we're going to serve up and pound down a veritable feast of tasty Zappa tunes. I mean like, if we're going to sail off into the sunset and stuff, we might as well chow down on some yummy Frank music beforehand!
As with almost any topic, from soup to nuts, one finds a wealth of Frankly insight on the food situation. It may have been the most-often alluded to subject, next to matters of a horny nature and Republicans, which are often one and the same.
FZ songs that deal with food, or eating, or hunger, include "Uncle Meat," "The Dangerous Kitchen," "Cruising For Burgers," "Lumpy Gravy," "Electric Aunt Jemima," "Call Any Vegetable," "Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue," "Muffin Man," "The Duke of Prunes," "A Little Green Rosetta," "Marque-son's Chicken," "Chana In De Bushwop," "Any Kind of Pain" and others that you or I will think of between now and Friday.
I'm working on some possible telephone guests. They may or may not happen.
But it's a groovable feast on this, the last Zappa's Grubby Chamber.
