Few recording artists have been as eccentric and uncompromising as Frank Zappa. Over the course of 30 years he released 60-odd albums, deconstructing the boundaries between rock, jazz, classical and contemporary music in the process. His humoristic and ironic lyrics were often perceived as vulgar and morally depraved, and as a result of this controversy he became an outspoken opponent of censorship and conformity. Pieced together from an impressive range of archival footage, EAT THAT QUESTION captures Zappa at his finest – and weirdest – moments.
