Ok, what if punishable by death?


[quote name='RhysP' post='1209483' date='Apr 23 2011, 08:15 PM']Do something else.[/quote]

What? Give up playing music? Or take up another instrument?

I think I'd break the law a bit. In secrecy, if it's punishable by death.

That would have to be some seriously bass trapped and soundproof room though, if you wanted to crank it - which let's face it, you'd have to!

Maybe with 2 broken strings? :) EDIT: not allowed, punishable by death.

In Joe's Garage, music is made illegal and the story follows the exploits of Joe (who used to be a nice boy).

In the liner notes Zappa states that music is actually illegal in Iran. I don't know if this is/was true.

I won't say any more because I think that you should go and listen to the album. But needless to say it is lyrically hilarious and musically mind blowing.

Keep it greasy,

Well, most people seem to be assuming that the choice is restricted to:

1) Keep playing, in a secret sort of way or 2) Stop

Quite obviously there is a third choice, which involves storming the inner sanctums of Downing St, one's AK47 coughing death into the serried ranks of whimpering policy wonks.

Which is? And I'm not interested if it doesn't involve wholesale slaughter.
