Everyone was giving it socks except Frank Black who was just a black hole of phoning it in, a bizarre sight to see the front person wishing they weren't there while everyone else is having loads of fun. Maybe it's just his stage persona though, IDK
I've seen them twice since the reunion & thought the exact same thing. Dissapointing.

I saw him with Frank Black and the Catholics and he looked like he was having a whale of a time.

Maybe he should post "(The) Pixies" in this thread too

I've gone off Zappa in my old age. Some of it is still class but the shitty humour does nothing for me

Zappa

Basically all the 70s jazz-rock stuff that didn't have the decency to go full prog and was too self-conscious to try and do soul.
Actually the Mothers of Invention moonlighted as a soul band, for example on Nolan Porters first album.

But yeah, Zappa is way too up his own arse.
