    Thanks for the interview comment Paul. Glad it was of interest. I'd like to see DZ do a mini Dweezilla in the UK (maybe Liverpool) next year. You never know what might develop.... watch this space!
    Have a Merry Crimbo and a Zappy New Year, cheers Tom

    Sleep Dirt!!  I first listened to Frank in my mid 20's, and it has taken another 20 years to really get the big picture.  I have a similar problem with Coen Brothers films, where I need to watch a few times to really enjoy the film to the full. The pure joy is finding something you have never heard but which makes perfect sense on first listen, and was full of surprises.  Youman and Harris I had never heard of in the Zappa canon of alumni, but what a discovery.  The title track sublime, and I hope ZPZ play this next time out.
