A friend of mine shared this article on Facebook and it reminded me about the Big Red Ball compilation, which inspired me to do a bunch of posts about the Zappa protege’s. My previous post was on Wild Man Fischer and this one’s on the GTO’s. Read the article and then go listen to the music.
The first time I heard them was on the previously mentioned Warner “Loss Leaders” compilation, which were only available through mail order. My best friend’s dad had all of those compilations and I would search those out specifically for the GTO’s and Ed Sanders/Fugs tracks. Super solid, weird as shit art rock. Spin it loud, freak out your neighbors.
