We have our own tribute to Mother's Day at Sub Rosa. We play music by Frank Zappa and the Mother's of Invention all day. Check it out.

Mother's Day Music

Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention warped my musical soul.

It was the heyday of the English music invasion and the beginnings of the psychedelic scene when I first heard the music of Frank Zappa. The Mothers of Invention 1966 debut album 'Freak Out' was filled with gritty doo-wop, dense ballads and searing political commentary that touched someplace deep inside. It was the 'Lumpy Gravy' series 'We're Only In It For The Money' that forever changed the way I listened to music though. With that album, Frank introduced me to polyrhythms, jazz, nob tweeling dub and very early renditions of 'trip hop' music. I was hooked for life.
There was something about one drummer playing in 7/8, while another drummer was playing in 3/4, while the organ player is playing a measure in 5/8 - simultaneously, that caught my ear. It is no surprise that I had a self-made bumper sticker on my first car that read 'Zappa's Jazz Babies'. We'd like to share a little of that music with you here today.
