Re: zappa!(was Re: For G-bashers)

In another Zappa sighting, Watermelon In Easter Hay (from Joe's Garage) is
in the soundtrack of the new movie Y Tu Mama Tambien. (Spanish language 
English subtitles.  Pretty good story about how two wild college freshmen
take an older woman on a road trip.)  Though he does not use loops in the
piece, the band just repeats a phrase over and over.  FZ manages to keep it
interesting both in the parts with a guitar melody, and the improvised solo
sections even though the background never changes.  Paying attention to his
approach I find helpful in dealing with a similar problem in looping.
