Flat Earth Society had prepared a special program for the occasion: "Terms Of Embarrassment". The concert included Zappa pieces next to compositions that had been written by Peter Vermeersch and by Pierre Vervloesem. And to add a bit of extra spice, FES had invited Mauro Pawlowski as a reinforcement.
The concert was quite good and, fortunately, the band got the possibility to take "Terms Of Embarrassment" on the road for a series of concerts in Belgium, The Netherlands and Japan.
The results of this tour can be found on this brand-new album. Recorded in concert in Ghent, Mechelen, Rotterdam, Sint-Niklaas and Breda, "Terms Of Embarrassment" presents 7 amazing pieces.
- Me Standard, You Poor (Peter Vermeersch)
- Random Riffs (Frank Zappa)
= some sort of mash-up of different licks from various Zappa tunes !!
- Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance (Frank Zappa)
- Abracadabra (Pierre Vervloesem)
including various Frank Zappa vamps and typical chord changes
- Solitude (Frank Zappa)
the infamous song that Frank wrote for Gail but that never got performed live.
There's a tape circulating from the Zappa Universe rehearsals where this track got performed, and Ed Palermo has performed it with his big band as well.
Vocals by Mauro Pawlowski and Berlinde Deman.
- Ahmad & Juan (Peter Vermeersch)
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
- City Of Tiny Lites (Frank Zappa)
This is a must-hear !
Essential listening !!
