Frank Zappa is one of those guys who I can sort of appreciate, but I'm not all that nuts about actually listening to. I know he was talented, he's got all this shit going on in his songs. He was irreverent, and generally a freak. But a lot of his stuff, though I enjoy listening to it, it's primarily to appreciate the oddball arrangements and instrumentation. Most of his music doesn't really move me, but there are some songs, songs that really hit the spot. One is "Trouble Every Day", a Mothers of Invention era song from 1966.
"Trouble Every Day" is hot shit. Get out the blender: Yardbirds, Byrds, Velvets, Television, Modern Lovers, shit, maybe even Robert Quine, and an ample amount of guitar interplay, put it in the garage, and throw in a bag of weed.
