Zappa heeft een body guard (Zappa has a body guard)
By Barend Toet, p 1

  Automatic translation: Zappa remains a fascinating personality, although he lost some importance in recent years due to his accident and various artistic projects just before and after. Zappa has often stated that his life is an 'artistic project' he plans and in which everything has a purpose. After '200 motels' did not fit into this planned approach the follow-up that reality forced on him: a forced rest period of nine months and the premature dissolution of the Mothers edition with Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman. Without these two vocal clowns, Zappa has been looking for more instrumental forms ever since, took the Grand Wazoo orchestra on the road and is now touring with a new club Mothers, again an almost entirely instrumental company. After the performance a few weeks ago – underlining Zappa's considerable popularity in this country again – I had a conversation – my fourth over the years – with Zappa on these topics. (read more

Ik Speel Frank Zappa (I play Frank Zappa)
By Roberto Palombit, pp 12-13

  Automatic translation: When I slowly open the door of Frank Zappa's hotel room, I am abruptly stopped by Frank's 'gorilla' hand. Hold it dude! It is made clear to me that I have to wait in the hall until I am called. The shaven expert in various oriental combat techniques asks almost kindly if I happen to work for Rolling Stone. If I answer in the negative, he says with a laugh that I can be happy about that, because otherwise I would have been a few floors lower by now. Frank hates Rolling Stone. (read more)

De kruissleutel (Cross wrench)
By Roberto Palombit, p 5

 Automatic translation: At a time when committed, critical pop musicians from the sixties have adapted, are converting to an odious form of Christianity (Dylan) or are writing Toon Hermans-like poems ( Lennon), we need musicians who to continue to use the pickaxe with regard to any kind of auwekul treat as a precious jewel. Frank Zappa definitely belongs in that category. He has never given up on the struggle and continues to kick fuzzy tendencies in society where he can hit them. Zappa understands better than anyone the danger that in the future (the eighties?) we will have a society in which religious fanatics will be in charge – with all the horrific consequences that entails.

Met naald en draad (Tinsel Town Rebellion)
By Rogier van Bakel, 1 p

 Automatic translation: Without immediately betraying its rich past, Frank Zappa became significantly more accessible after his label switch from Warner Brothers to Phonogram/CBS. Sheik Yerbouti from '79 illustrates that undeniably: the understandable complexity of that album brings Zappa a new following who could never have connected with what the 40-year-old prodigy achieved on "difficult" albums like Hot Rats, One Size Fits All, Studio Tan, or Orchestral Favorites (a random selection). In '79 and '80, Zappa comes up with the Joe's Garage trilogy, which is somewhat disappointing because the musical and textual banality (which is an extension of accessibility) occasionally becomes overwhelming. Tinsel Town Rebellion, his 29th album - not counting compilations and bootlegs! - is, however, on the right side of the line, albeit a bit tight.(read more)

Frank Zappa "You Are What You Is"
By Roberto Palombit, 1 p

Automatic translation: Horrible Frank is as weak as a door lock. At the end of this year, the three Shut Up n' Play Ver Guitar albums will be released and only the real guitar freaks are interested in them, so Frank will release an album with easily digestible material before then. The double album You Are What You Is (free after Nietzsche) consists of compact songs with strong vocals and apart from Theme From The 3rd Movement Of Sinister Footwearwithout long guitar solos. The emphasis here is on catchy vocal works and for this he has, in addition to Ike Willis and Ray White, hired various top forces: including Jimmy Carl Black, Motorhead Sherwood, Ahmet (isn't that the bizarre ex-singer of The Fraternity Of Man?) and his daughter Moon. The texts are terribly funny and everyone gets a turn again. (read more)

Frank Zappa is van alle markten thuis (original published text in Dutch)
Frank Zappa is a man for all seasons (translation back to English by killuglyradio)
By Zjakki Willems, pp 64-67

Frank Zappa is a man for all seasons. In his 30-year career he's composed for rockgroups, as well as for classical ensembles and big bands. His first (double)album Freak Out! of 1966 already challenged the boundaries of rock, jazz, classical, rhythm&blues; and avant-garde. In the early 80ies he manifested himself as a very talented guitarist. In between all that, he's also active as a filmmaker and writer. (read more)
