Frank Zappa – Easy Meat [Tinsel Town Rebellion, 1981] [reblog]

from Oannes blog…

…for Tsiknopempti*

*Tsiknopempti [Charred Thursday] is the Thursday of the 2nd week of Apokria [Carnival], during which large amounts of meat are traditionally consumed prior to the arrival of Lent, the fasting season leading up to Easter. [wikipedia]

Yes, well, a perverse sense of humor …coming from a vegan*! 😉

Enjoy, master Zappa!

Δυο εκτελέσεις, ενωμένες σε μια. Από το διπλό live άλπουμ του FZ των early ’80s.

Two performances, in one. From the F.Z. double live album of the early 80s.

*I’ll be enjoying my Tsiknopempti with some delicious vegan gyros! 😉
More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. Wow! I been Zapped!! His music was good, but his fashion sense was even better!!– I’ve gotta get a matching soul patch and terrycloth jacket– both Lenten Purple!! Oh– and a matching dish of ambrosia, too. Coordination is everything… 🍨😋 🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨😋🚑👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽👽😊

    • It looks like a bath robe!!!! 😉
      Of course, without the matching ambrosia, the coordination is off, but he didn’t have the blessing of Zeus and all the rivers of ambrosia he orders for you…
      Not everyone can have Zeus’s grace! 😉

  2. I wasn’t aware of the Carnival tradition in Greece, though I’ve become quite aware of the dietary restrictions of Great Lent. (Oh, I’m going to miss my martinis.)
    Guess I’ll have to ask about it at next week’s Orthodoxy on Tap dinner at a tavern up the street.
    Zappa, by the way, is usually described as being of Italian descent, but seeing now his Greek roots makes sense. And many musicians I’ve met have been fascinated by his classical compositions as well.
