Totally natural

On this morning’s walk I took a new route, away from the cows and horses and bravely into the suburbs. I passed a house with a large sign outside offering a service I had never heard of: ionic foot detox.

So I looked it up. Apparently ionic foot detox will deal with, among other things, joint pain, arthritis, chronic fatigue, foggy brain, poor concentration and parasites. Fantastic. It can fix my feet and my head and also get rid of the cat.

Also, even though it uses electricity to ionise water, it is totally natural.

So here is the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Kent Nagano performing Frank Zappa’s “Bogus Pomp”:

That's so good I'm off to learn to play the guitar just so I can record a solo guitar suite called 'Ionic Foot Detox'. In honour of FZ, it will encompass six very long movements:

i) Joint Pain
ii) Arthritis
iii) Chronic Fatigue
iv) Foggy Brain
v) Poor concentration
vi) Parasites

I'll be in touch again in a few years. I now have about 20 minutes to find me some crossroads.

I must say, it is a lot more fanciful than the Doric Foot Detox.

But less than the Corinthian. I could go one of those.

Incidentally that's not the best performance of "Bogus Pomp" - Zappa claimed that the brass section were all pissed, but that's what you get with brass sections even with a good conductor such as Nagano.
