The Torture Never Stops
Frank Zappa's New York Halloween 1981 concerts were filmed Live at The Palladium. This 'thing' entitled "The
Torture Never Stops was created in its entirety by FZ from the original concert production and intended by the
Artist as one of 3 Television Specials. This is the longest version of the three - the others, "You Are What You Is"
and "Dumb All Over", having actually aired. Halloween was Frank Zappas favorite holiday, and New York was the
site of Frank Zappa Halloween concerts for years! Much of the set list is drawn from that work. All Frank Zappa shows were unique experiences with Zappa on guitar and baton,
leading his band on flights of improvisation and drawing ever more intense performances from them. The Torture
Never Stops cements Zappas reputation as one of the most innovative and challenging composers and
performers of the 20th century.
