The Ocapellos were the greatest singing group ever if only because Frank Zappa took their song “The Stars” and mooshed it into “Fountain of Love,” recorded as Ruben & the Jets.

Speaking of Frank Zappa, one of his greatest influences was one Edgard Varese.  John M. of Uncertain Times found some great gems and posted them here.
