Friday Frank: Chunga's Revenge, 1980



It looks like most of the usual suspects are on stage with him, but for the most part, this one's all Frank--Frank and some pretty glorious guitar work, I should say. This footage is twenty-seven years old, and it's unclear where it was filmed. Even given the rough video quality, though, you'll enjoy seeing Mr. Zappa at his intense best--there are closeups on his long, bony fingers as they fly around the frets, as well as on his utterly focused expression as he creates another of what guitarist Steve Vai termed sonic sculptures.

Bon Weekend, everyone!
