Santa is coming to town meets the slime segueing into a Thela Hun Ginjeet inspired take on 555.
Well, first of all,
I couldn't even see his face.
I couldn't see his face.
He was holding a Elf in his hand.
Umm... I was thinking...
This is dangerous egg nog..
This is really great egg nog..
I said, "I'm filled with good cheer from this stuff.
I thought those guys were going to kiss me for sure.
They ganged up on me like that.
I couldn't believe it.
Look, I'm still shakin'.
Weird. Out the on the tundra like that.
It's dangerous egg nog.
It's damn fine egg nog.
So, suddenly, these two sugarplums appear in front of me.
Start at me, you know.
"What's that?" "What's that on that tape?"
What do you got there?"
I said, "huh?"
They said, "What are you talking into that for?"
I said, "It's just a tape, you know"
"Well play it for me"
I said "Ho, Ho"
I put it off as long as I could.
And finally they turned it on, you know
They grabbed it from me.
Took it away from me.
Turned it on.
And it said, "He held a Elf in his hand. This is a dangerous place."
They said, "What Egg Nog?" "What Elf?" "You're one of his helpers!"
And the deeper I talked, the worse I got into it.
I talked, I told him... I said, "Look man, I'm not talkin'...."
It went on forever.
Anyway, I finally unbuttoned my shirt, and said,
"look, look... I'm in this band, you know, I'm in this band you know,
and we're makin' a recording, you know.
It's about The North Pole, it's about cheer in the streets..."
The explanation was going nowhere, but,
Finally, they just kinda let me go, I don't know why.
So I walk around the corner,
and I'm like shakin' like a leaf,
and I thought, "This is a dangerous place"
Who should appear, but a fat old Elf and many reindeer...
Z.E.R.O. was formed in 2012 to explore the potential of the ukulele in Frank's music. It has
since grown from
that early concept into something far larger.
The membership is variable, ranging from a live trio to a virtual 17 piece band featuring comedy musicians from the world over.
Z.E.R.O. has no affiliation with the Zappa Family Trust....more
Dave Hartl's playing is precise and passionate, the perfect tribute to Zappa. And much like stripping down a pop or rock song (a la acoustic or unplugged versions) can display some brilliance inherent in the original tune, playing Zappa on solo piano truly showcases the man's compositional genius. Thank you for these recordings, Dave! brainwise
