In order to finance his artier excursions, which increasingly required more expensive technology, Frank Zappa recorded several collections of guitar- and song-oriented material in the late '70s and early '80s, which generally concentrated on the bawdy lyrical themes many fans had come to expect and enjoy in concert. Sheik Yerbouti (two LPs, one CD) was one of the first and most successful of these albums, garnering attention for such tracks as the Grammy-nominated disco satire "Dancin' Fool," the controversial "Jewish Princess," and the equally controversial "Bobby Brown Goes Down," a song about gay S&M that became a substantial hit in European clubs. While Zappa's attitude on the latter two tracks was even more politically incorrect than usual for him, it didn't stop the album from becoming his second-highest charting ever. Social satire, leering sexual preoccupations, and tight, melodic songs dominated the rest of the record as well, as Zappa stuck to what had been commercially successful for him in the past. The "dumb entertainment" (as Zappa liked to describe this style) on Sheik Yerbouti was some of his dumbest, for better or worse, and the music was undeniably good -- easily some of his best since Apostrophe, and certainly the most accessible. Even if it sometimes drifts a bit, fans of Zappa's '70s work will find Sheik Yerbouti on nearly an equal level with Apostrophe and Over-Nite Sensation, both in terms of humor and musical quality.

Les Grands Angles...
Frank Zappa, pour le meilleur et pour le rire

Plus les années passent depuis la disparition de Frank Zappa le 4 décembre 1993, plus son absence se fait cruellement sentir dans le panorama musical actuel. Non pas qu'on l'ait oublié, mais on cherchera en vain ceux qui peuvent prétendre l’égaler. Le génie aussi cosmique que comique de Frank Zappa n'a aucun équivalent aujourd'hui, car personne, depuis près de trois décennies, n’a été capable comme lui de conjuguer la plus grande exigence musicale avec un humour totalement décomplexé.

La révolution des Talking Heads

Quarante ans après, la folie funky du “Remain in Light” de la bande de David Byrne a conservé toute sa force. Ce post-punk cérébral propulsé sur un dancefloor cosmopolite a même nourri l’ADN de milliers de groupes comme LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend ou Arcade Fire. Avec ce 4e album produit par Brian Eno, les Talking Heads ont fait leur révolution. Et celle du rock.

Moby, et la lumière fut

Peu nombreux sont les artistes qui, comme Moby, sont passés du punk à la techno/house puis à la pop, tout en continuant de composer de l’ambient. A l’occasion de la sortie de “Reprise”, l’album qui célèbre ses 30 ans de carrière, Qobuz revient sur la trajectoire d’un artiste qui a multiplié les contre-pieds, au point de parfois se feinter lui-même, avant d’enfin trouver une voie artistique apaisée.
