SOUNDCHECK featuring BURGER AND THE BEAST
Live at The Old Fire Station
Fri 25th January 2019
Burger And The Beast play the music of Frank Vincent Zappa who was an American musician, bandleader, songwriter, composer, recording engineer, record producer, and film director.
In a career spanning more than 30 years, Zappa composed rock, jazz, orchestral and musique concrète works, directed feature-length films and music videos, designed album covers and produced almost all of the more than 60 albums he released with the band the Mothers of Invention and as a solo artist.
Zappa was a self-taught composer and performer, and his diverse musical influences led him to create music that was often difficult to categorize. His 1966 debut album with the Mothers of Invention, Freak Out!, combined songs in conventional rock and roll format with collective improvisations and studio-generated sound collages. His later albums shared this eclectic and experimental approach, irrespective of whether the fundamental format was rock, jazz or classical. His lyrics—often humorously—reflected his iconoclastic view of established social and political processes, structures and movements. He was a strident critic of mainstream education and organized religion, and a forthright and passionate advocate for freedom of speech, self-education, political participation and the abolition of censorship.
