Fielding Paints New Zappa Cover

© Noel Fielding/Frank Zappa

As all good Boosh fans will know, there are a number of connections between the boys and Frank Zappa. Well now there’s another one!

Noel Fielding has painted the cover of a new 12″ 45rpm (red vinyl) release of Zappa’s Help I’m a Rock & Who are the Brain Police? Both tracks originally appeared on Freak Out!, the 1966 debut album from The Mothers of Invention.

The record is available to pre-order via Barfko-Swill for $16 by clicking here. Please note that they expect this item to ship the week of 4th July 2013, so if you order the record you won’t receive it straight away. For any of you who aren’t familiar with the featured tracks you can hear Help I’m a Rock here and Who are the Brain Police there.

Frank Zappa’s image has featured a number of times in Noel Fielding’s paintings, so it’s pretty special to see a tie-up between the creative output of the two artists like this.

  3. I would have liked to have lived in Zappa’s head for an hour or so – but I reckon it would have been quite a busy place! I love the painting. The colours are so sharp and the shapes are so curvy and delicious. Quintessential Fielding!
