Discographie Frank Zappa part 16 - Over-nite Sensation



frank zappa the grand wazoo
Frank Zappa : "Over-nite Sensation"
Label : the Frank Zappa family thrust
Date d'enregistrement : 1973

Retour en force de Zappa puisque ce disque se vendra comme des coussins pèteurs pour un banquet de commerciaux. Normal. Il synthétise les excès parodiques et improvisés des Mothers, la construction méthodique d'un "Grand Wazoo" et titille l'oreille des non-initiés par des morceaux aux durées conventionnelles et aux mélodies aisément identifiables voire sifflables. Jazzy, funky, rocky, la tonalité de l'album est plutôt chaude et accueillante, limite sexuelle, comme en témoignent certains morceaux comme "Dinah-Moe-Hum" ou "Dirty Love". Les solos de Frank sont absolument free et l'incrustent de façon définitive dans le panthéon des guitare-héros du cosmos. La guitare est brillamment secondée par un violon électrique dingue entraîné par Jean-Luc Ponty ("Fifty-fifty") le tout donnant un des albums les plus facile d'accès et terriblement indispensable. Juste comme ça parce que ça fait du bien, les paroles de "I'm the slime" : 'I am gross and perverted, I'm obsessed and deranged, I have existed for years but very little has changed, I'm the tool of the government and industry too, for I am destined to rule and regulate you, I may be vile and pernitious but you can't look away, I make you think I'm delicious with the stuff that I say, I'm the best you can get, have you guessed me yet? I'm the slime oozing out from your TV set. You will obey me while I lead you and eat the garbage that I feed you, until the day that we don't need you, don't go for help no one will heed you. Your mind is totally controlled and has been stuffed into my mold and you will do as you are told until the rights to you are sold'. C'était en 1973!
