“DESCRIBING Petulant Frenzy as a ''Frank Zappa covers band'' is akin to describing the Australian Chamber Orchestra as ''a group that rehashes old Mozart hits''. But the back-handed compliment of being a "hot covers band" was shrugged off by the Frenzy many moons ago, as a devoted audience of jazz musicians and rabid nostalgics realised they were not simply a note-for-note re-enactment. Presenting Zappa is not like pumping out Abba hits in an RSL club. The music requires interpretation, skill and an ability to see and exploit possibilities that allow fine ensemble play to fly. To appreciate what Petulant Frenzy achieve on stage one needs to be at least vaguely familiar with the original work, but many in the Basement audience had been dragged along by friends and partners, and they left astounded at the dexterity and thrilled by the sheer fun.”
