Grandmothers of  Invention

Grandmothers of Invention

"Great news for Zappaphiles!"..."If you ever dug Zappa, you don't want to miss
the GrandMothers of Invention."..."They are THE authentic live version of
Zappa's music."..."This isn't just another comeback, this is the reincarnation of
the Mothers of Invention!"..."From Zappa's mid to late 70's Mothers bands, the
GrandMothers are touring the world and keeping Zappa's music alive."..."The
evening contained a lot of the contradictory eclectic, serious and circusy flavors
of a Zappa show...the GrandMothers were able to go deeper into the material,
rather than merely parroting Zappa's notoriously tricky composed lines."
The GrandMothers of Invention are the only Frank Zappa/Mothers of Invention
alumni who have been consistently performing the music of the maestro since
2003. From the classic “Freak Out”, “Absolutely Free”, "We're Only In It For The
Money", "Uncle Meat", and "Burnt Weeny Sandwich" - to - “Weasels Ripped My
Flesh”, “Apostrophe”, "The Grand Wazoo", "Overnite Sensation", "Roxy &
Elsewhere", "Bongo Fury", and "One Size Fits All" - they have performed on a
very long list of classic Frank Zappa & the Mother's of Invention's albums, movies
and other projects. (See their combined Frank Zappa/Mothers of Invention
discography and videography lists.)
"Rare are the musicians who can even play Zappa's music, let alone make it live
and breathe. So Thank the Lord for the GrandMothers of Invention."..."With three
different Zappa eras represented, the GrandeMothers have a wide palette of
material to choose from."..."They served up vintage psychedelia - rock songs
with surreal lyrics, jazz-like harmonies and melodic complexity, with flashes of
wacky satire."..."Amazing virtuoso musicians, fun and funny."
