The Spoilers recorded Frank Zappa's 'Theme from Lumpy Gravy' for "Lemme Take You To The Beach", a Zappa Surf album on Cordelia records.
lemme take you to the beach
(2004, cd, uk, cordelia records cd035) - all compositions by frank zappa
I asked all of the Zappa Surf album contributors the same
couple of questions.
Thanks to Kirill Turitsin from The Spoilers, I can tell you the following:
The Spoilers play instrumental surf music. They don't consider themselves 'surf kind of guys', because "it's really funny to be a 'surf-kind of man' in the midle of Russia, where there is no ocean".
They have never been to California, but they do think that it's a cool place. Maybe even one of the coolest places in the world.
The Spoilers have contributed to several Russian
& European compilations, but have no full lengh album out as of yet.
They donít play other Zappa compositions either. Just the "Theme from Lumpy Gravy", that they recorded especially for the Zappa Surf project. Kirill said that before the Zappa Surf project, he had hardly heard any Zappa tracks at all. When he found out about the project through the Cawabunga mailing list, he listened to about 20 Zappa albums and picked 'Theme from Lumpy Gravy".
Kirill's message to the world: "Stay reverb!"
