A short, bombastic, and playful track from the 1972 LP The Grand Wazoo, "Cletus Awreetus-Awrightus" sounds like a second helping of "Peaches en Regalia." Like "Peaches en Regalia," it was released as a single (Bizarre, 1972), backed with the jazzy "Eat That Question." George Duke gets a spotlight as a mad arpeggio-addicted pianist. The title is the name of the Funky Emperor in the story printed on the LP sleeve. He is the character holding the "mystery horn" in the cover artwork.

Thank you for making so many Frank Zappa songs as customs. Especially "I Am The Slime." That was the first song I had heard by him (Live on SNL). I hadn't really listened to the guy beyond that song until a friend in college played some of his songs for me, and showed me how big the guy's discography is. Dude was crazy talented, and made a tremendous amount of good music.

 

Thanks again for making such a unique and talented artist, who no way in hell would have ever been in the game before, playable in Rock Band.

This has been a dream come true for me. I initially thought it would be nothing more than a drums only project but my pal NSW1-6 stepped up to help make as many full band as we can before getting burnt out. I'm very pleased with what we've released so far and hopefully our plans for the future can continue to excite the current fans and maybe educate the newbies. Thanks for the great comment :)
