Frank Zappa on Crossfire, 1986

Zappa: The biggest threat to America today is not communism; it's moving America towards a fascist theocracy and everything that has happened during the Reagan administration. Is steering us right down that pipe...
When you have a government that prefers a certain moral code derived from a certain religion and that moral code turns into legislation to suit one certain religious point of view and if that code happens to be very, very right wing almost toward Attila the Hun.

Lofton: Well then you are an anarchist. Every form of civil government is based on some kind of morality, Frank.

Zappa: Morality in terms of behavior-not in terms of theology.

Best music events in Austin, 2005

Well, check this out. The Austin New Music Coop was on Austin 360's list of best three music events of 2005.

"Beyond the Past: New Music for Extinct Instruments," New Music Co-op. Blending the right amount of smarts, fun and quirk, this group of composers and improvisers lovingly re-created some oddball Italian Futurist instruments and then wrote new scores for the noisemaking contraptions.

Congrats to the Co-op.
