No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Frank Zappa - Joe's Garage [1979]

Clocking in at just short of two hours, "Joe's Garage" is one of the most bizarre pieces of work ever to emerge from the wonderfully twisted mind of Frank Zappa.

The plot of the album starts off almost believable: an ordinary guy named Joe who tries starting a garage band, despite the imminent outlawing of music. The album touches on the loss of innocence, contracting STDs, and burning out as a result of a rock n' roll lifestyle. However, it's with the beginning of Act II that things take a turn for the insane. Songs include "Stick It Out" (about sexual washing machines that have a thing for people dressed like German housewives) and "Keep It Greasey" (the heartwarming tale of being "plooked" by former record company execs while in prison).

Overall this album is an indescribable experience that you would not get from anyone other than Mr. Zappa himself. While not quite of "Hot Rats" fame, it's still definitely worth a listen.

~320 kbps (VBR)

(n.b. this is technically a triple album, so it's a larger download than usual)
