The Vegetarians plays Dan, Zep and Zappa

Swedish musician and Zappa fan Hans Annéllsson and his friend John Marshall (= The Vegetarians) have released a five song download only "EP" with cover versions of some of their favourite artists: Frank Zappa, Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, Traffic and King Crimson.
This imaginary EP is titled Fred Zappelin, a name adopted from the Zappas. Fred Zappelin (or Fred Zeppelin) was the name of a band that the young Dweezil Zappa used to play with. The name is what you get when combining the two names Frank Zappa and Led Zeppelin. The songs by The Vegetarians sound quite catchy, but let's see what the purists say. You can hear the Fred Zappelin tunes on Radio Dupree:

1. In The Evening
2. Medicated Goo

3. My Old School

4. One More Red Nightmare
5. The Idiot Bastard Son
