ZAPPA PICKS: BY JON FISHMAN OF PHISH

Rating Star
BOTH RYKODISC

Nerdish and pointless or fanatically worthwhile? The jury is out on the wisdom of asking modern musos to cherry-pick their favourite Zap tracks-anything from “Wind Up Workin’ In A Gas Station” to “It Can’t Happen Here”?and it probably won’t bother to come back. The verdict lies in making connections. If Phish and Primus float your boat then this parlour game could amuse. It’s hard to imagine Frank’s followers needing these sets, although I could be entirely wrong.
