Hi y'all,

I thought you might enjoy a video interview I did with Samuel Andreyev a couple of weeks ago. Samuel is a Canadian composer who lives and teaches in Strasbourg, FR at Syracuse University. It's a long interview (1' 54"), so you'll need a beverage...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugMep20elgQ

Here also is a long article I wrote entitled Zappa vs. Beefheart: What Were They Really Like?

http://www.beefheart.com/zappa-vs-beefh ... art-tripp/

Hope you enjoy them!

a question for you, mr. tripp;

could you tell us a little bit about the track nine types of industrial pollution from the uncle meat album?

of course, it's a great zappa guitar solo, but I have always been wondering who played the drums and percussion in the background. 8)

Hi there,

I played all the miscellaneous percussion, which Frank overdubbed onto the track. As far as I know, Billy Mundi played the track's basic drumset. It was actually a rather slow 3/4 blues piece, recorded before Billy left the MOI, after which Frank added the other stuff. I had done quite a bit of solo percussion recording at Apostolic Studio in NYC soon after I joined. Frank used parts from those on a number of albums, including YCDTOSAM. I think those solo percussion sessions were mentioned in the Samuel Andreyev interview on YouTube.

What can you tell us about the making of "Clear Spot"? It doesn't seem to be that highly regarded, but I bought a copy in a cut-out bin and played it non-stop for about three months. Still love it. Luckily I still have a few shrink-wrapped back ups!

Clear Spot is a Master Piece

How the hell can one believe that the man behind the drumkit on that album is the same man playing percussion on Nine Types.....
All that percussion at the Royal Festival all in '68

Mr Tripp, you are amazing
