Zappa's first appearance on TV, of course you can question the artistic value here, but nice to see the ambition in this young autodidact.

Have you ever been to G-W. Raes' Logos Foundation? Nice 'little' and chaotic laboratory. He just made some drumming robots for Aphex Twin.

Frank Zappa and Bicycle.
I know and it passed my thoughts using this for the show.
Unfortunately this piece is acoustic music, bad sound quality, difficult getting rights for airplay.

Years ago I visited Logos Foundation.

That man's likely to get a blister on his butt.

Not sure why I'm looking at a man's naked arse on a Monday morning, but here's Peter Gabriel singing Solsbury Hill...on a bicycle!

Peter on a bicycle, and he is not even Dutch! :wink:

The guy on the picture is naked and his muscles are read by sensors.
I agree, not the best picture to wake up on a Monday morning, but you can listen to "his but" Wednesday evening!

Talking about Zappa: here a bad video of people making fun of the idea to create music with a bicycle:

Due a technician's mistake, this program has been logged wrong on the server of the Concertzender.
You will hear a different Electronic Frequencies, no bicycles.
They are busy restoring the program. When the archive link will be available, I will place the link.
