Is that four months ago already?!?
I had listened to Ben Watson's view on Don Van Vliet's lyrics and poetry; I had seen FiftyII50's struggle with the sound system, and I had already enjoyed a fine concert by Ya Hozna.
I guess I was ready for some more music.
Next up were The Yellow Snow Crystals. They brought Zappa in the German language. With a jazz flavour.
I liked it. I thought it was very funny and I enjoyed the music and the performance a lot.
I had seen the band in concert before so I knew what to expect, but I was still impressed. Not only did the band have two backing vocalists, they had extended their repertoire as well.
