Wang Chung - Zappa fans
- So I'm listening to Wang Chung's "Warmer Side of Cool" album
(hey, I found the CD at a flea market for $5) and at the
beginning of the song "Swing" there's a clip of a young kid
trying (not quite successfully) to quote Zappa's "jazz isn't
dead, it just smells funny" line. Which made me do a web
search for "Wang Chung Zappa" - it turned up an interview
with Jack Hues where he says that his songwriting partner in
Wang Chung, Nick Feldman, was a big Zappa fan.
Who would have guessed?

About half-way down the page he talks about working with Tony
Banks on the Strictly Inc album (which, like the interviewer,
I've never heard because it wasn't released in the US). It's
kind of funny how the guy who wrote "Everybody Have Fun
Tonight" makes a point of mentioning he only likes the *early*
Genesis albums. Apparently Hues is a closet prog fan. I knew
there was a reason I liked Wang Chung.
