The concept was to bring together two bands in a dueling musical atmosphere. In the film "Westside Story", "Rumble" is sort of the do-or-die dance that takes place between the Jets and the Sharks. The arrangement was done so 2 bands would face each other. The bands were Chick Corea's Elektric Band (Chick Corea - keyboards, Dave Weckl - drums, Frank Gambale - guitar, Jimmy Earl - bass, Eric Marienthal - saxophone) vs. Steve Vai's Monsters (Steve Vai - guitar, Simon Phillips - drums, John Pena - bass, David Paich - keyboards, Lenny Castro - percussion.)

 

Thanks to MrBurpler for the video preview and drum review!

GUITAR: EchoOfMystery

 

Back in the 90s and early 00s, Letters to Cleo were all over the teen movie soundtracks of the era—The Craft, Josie and the Pussycats and 10 Things I Hate About You. They provided the songs that made these teen dramas resonate that much deeper. Formed in 1990 and led by Kay Hanley, the six-piece ermerged from Boston's burgeoning alt-rock scene. The indie outfit most famously recorded a cover of Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me,” which would eventually find its way to the 10 Things I Hate About You soundtrack.

Part of the 1979 concept album Joe's Garage, "Catholic Girls" is a cynical song on the hypocrisy of some parishioners. You meet Mary, the main female character in the story. Joe and her meet at the CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) for trivial social activities. But catholic girls are no angels and while their parents think they're sending them to a sexually repressive environment, "they're learning to blow/All the Catholic Boys!"
 
"Catholic Girls" is one of Frank Zappa's best-known songs, along with "Dancin' Fool." It features all of his tricks: the religion vs. sex topic, the multiple voices and characterizations, sped-up voices, and bass vocal accompaniment, the silliness of the music emphasizing the plot's, an irresistible lightness, and a snippet of complexity in the 9/8 and 7/8 introductory riff. It's irreverent fun.

"I Come From Nowhere" (one of the craziest track ever recorded by Frank) was entirely devised in the studio. It stemmed from a rock guitar riff Frank Zappa stumbled upon. From track to track it grew into a weird kind of arena rock. It was released on the 1982 LP Ship Arriving Too Late to Save a Drowning Witch and never performed on-stage. I've never heard a so much complex bass: it is rhythmic & dissonant at the same time! It definitely takes many many listens to REALLY understand it! Like if it was not enough, the lead vocals via original mother Roy Estrada are completely deranged! Finally, this track ends with an impossible guitar solo featuring Steve Vai.

UPDATED 7/17/2020: So once upon a time in early 2016 I was a Zappa newbie diving headfirst in the catalog. I started charting drums on a lot of songs never thinking they would become full band. My charting skills were not up to par for the intense difficulty on some songs so I edited them heavily. Over 4 years later I decided the time was now to restore this and 3 other Joe's Garage tracks to their full glory. First up is the return of over 2 minutes from the outro of "He Used to Cut the Grass". Thanks to my pals for helping me get this done. Not only has the song been extended but every part has been fixed for accuracy.

Oh heck, I just realized Too High gives album sorting to Innervisions!


what do you mean?


I mean that if you own the officially released DLC songs "Higher Ground" and "Living for the City," that they, along with your custom should make 3 songs from that album, the number that appear album-sorted in game.

It's not a big thing, but I like seeing it.

There is a real embarrassment of riches with drum customs today. Awesome to see more from Bruce and Stevie, even if it's not stuff I'm familiar with.

Great update. Mastodon usually never disappoints on drums. I already had a custom of Capillarian Crest but don't remember if it had pro markers or not. I know a few of the Mastodon customs I have doesn't have pro markers so will be great to get rid of them with your versions.

Is the guitar chart on capillarian crest a new creation or a convert from an old chart?

I have a guitar/drum custom of it already, and I only want to play guitar, and I'm not sure if they're two different versions or you only changed the drums or something

circle of cysquatch doesn't seem to work, says the song data is unavailable/restarts the session. maybe that's just me though

the part before the solo in crystal skull with scott kelly is charted wrong but that's just a fanboy complaint, i doubt many will notice or care :). nice work though man, it's especially nice to have a single pedal version of capillarian crest since I'm still stuck with just one

circle of cysqatch is messed up. I had it working in single pedal but now its not. I'm going to work on it. I'll take a look at Crystal skull. Accuracy is paramount :)

Thanks for the great new stuff. :) One quick thing: please don't use the Convert badge for conversion from customs, that badge is intended for songs converted from other official games/releases. ;)
