Zappadan 4

This evening I will be featuring an entire album. Frank did many mocking, sarcastic albums and also many which could be considered 'concept' albums but this might be his first that is both.

A pointed attack on the 60's and all that he felt it stood for, We're Only In It For The Money pulls no punches. I'm presenting it in its entirety so that the listener will have Lonely Little Girl together with Mom & Dad, and Flower Punk with Concentration Moon. There are nuanced positions here but mostly there is blame. He blames everyone for the misery in the world.

In the evocatively named What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body Frank concludes that "it must be your mind." In Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance he tells us "there will come a time when you won't even be ashamed if you are fat." Now that's Revolution. Can you dig it?
