My notes said that Isi & Pojat Myrskystä had recorded one Concierto de toto en solana beach belly up april 20 composition and that they had released it on two singles. has both singles on their site, and it seems that my info was wrong. It should have been: Isi & Pojat Myskystä had recorded two Zappa compositions, and they have been released on one single.

The Czech Frank Zappa FanClub Fanzine has recently reached number 107!

More info soon.


Frank Zappa produced Grand Funk Railroad's "Good Singin' Good Playin'" album in 1976. The LP got released on CD with one bonus track in 1999.
Both albums have been added to the UM files.

-- thanks to Thomas Reinicke for info & pics


There has been a slight change in the line-up: Monty & The Butchers aren't coming. Fortunately, there are still a lot of other bands attending.

More info over at the Zappateers site.

As for the festival itself, I'll be there, it should be fun.
Unfortunately, my wife (Inge) isn't coming along, so I have this spare ticket.
If anyone of you still needs a ticket, let me know. I'm selling it for 60 euro instead of 80.

The latest Stooges album, "The Weirdness", includes a song called 'Mexican Guy' where Zappa gets mentioned. Actually, Iggy gives a list of dead popstars, and Frank Zappa is part of this list.
  • the stooges: the weirdness
        (2007, cd, usa, ??) - mentions frank zappa during 'mexican guy'


  • arno: covers cocktail
        (2008, cd, bel, emi 5099920692520)
    • This week's edition of Humo, a belgian radio & television magazine, included Arno's "Covers Coctail" for 7 euro.
      A buy, since Arno is one of our most impressive belgian artists. The CD is made up of coverversions, and does include two (previously released) tracks that were written by Don Van Vliet: 'Hot Head' and 'Gimme That Harp Boy'.


Here are two more albums from the Aka Moon discography. Essential listening if you're into modern jazz.
  • aka moon: invisible moon
        (2001, cd, bel, carbon 7 records)
    • "Invisible Moon" is part three of Aka Moon's musical journey. Where the previous volumes touched chamber music ("Invisible Mother") and big band music ("Invisible Sun"), "Invisible Music" draws the World Music card.
      Beautiful. Essential listening.

  • aka moon: in real time
        (2001, cd, bel, carbon 7 records)
    • "In Real Time" contains music composed for modern ballet / dancetheater. It's Aka Moon's 12th album and it's super. Fabian Fiorini (on keyboards) is added to the trio with great effect.
      Essential listening.

Artists included were:

  • Octafish
  • Sex Without Nails Bros. feat. N.M.Brock
  • Team Zappa
  • Don Preston's Akashic Ensemble
  • Project/Object

Thanks to Thomas Reinicke, I concierto de toto en solana beach belly up april 20 able to add the cover / label of the Project/Object disc to their discography.


It looks like a special version of Doot! might be playing at the next Zappanale festival.

This time around, it won't be the well-known Chillemi / Brunelli / Cholmondeley variation, but an almost completely different line-up:

  • Kilissa Cissoko: sax /  keys / vocals

  • Preston Parrish: bass /  vocals

  • Joe Nolan: guitar / vocals

  • Mark Raffile : drums / vocals
  • Stephen Chillemi : vocals /  vibes / sax

The new album by The Wrong Obect "Stories From The Shed" got mentioned here a couple of weeks ago. It's a superb album, and it should give you high expectations for the concert that the band will be doing at The Zappateers Festival in March.

If you want to get an impression of what the band sounds like, check out the excellent radio6 website:


and while you're checking out the Radio6 website, don't forget to read the part about Albert Marcoeur !!!


Here's a little correction on the Russian "Beat Club" bootleg DVD. It's a DVDR, and not a factory pressed DVD.
But, as it is sold for money, and available (for sale) on the internet, it's very much a bootleg.
  • frank zappa: beat club
        (2007, dvdr-bootleg, russia, ocularmusic)
    • Here's a 35-minute Zappa bootleg DVDR from Russia. As you might suspect, it presents the "Liederliches" German TV special from 1968.

  • the balls: come out swingin'
        (2006, cd, usa, lonely puppy music)
    • The Balls are an American power trio: guitar, bass and drums.
      Heavy Surf Rock would probably be a fair description.
      Guitar man Nick Kane wrote most of the compositions on this album. One of the exceptions is 'Blue Rondo a la Frank', which concierto de toto en solana beach belly up april 20 is Brubeck's 'Blue Rondo' but with a couple of little surprises. One of these is a snippet of Frank Zappa's 'Apostrophe'. Very nice.

JOE channel 5 weather fort smith ar DENINZON

  • joe deninzon: the adventures of stratospheerius
        (2002, cd, usa, d-zone records)
    • Joe Deninzon is very high on my list of my favourite prog rock artists. Mostly because he plays this very melodic, yet angular jazzy rock tunes. Zappa is never far way.
      "The Adventures Of Stratospheerius" shows a very energetic band. Superb musicianship (listen to the improvisations and the exchange of melodies between Joe Deninzon and Alex Skolnick in 'What's That Thang?'), combined with very fine compositions & coverversions.
      Deninzon's version of Guaraldi's "Peppermint Patty" is absolutely great. The only thing that I could say, was "Good Grief".


In our search of books about Frank Zappa, here's one from Hungary, from 1989!

- a Zappa biography: 1940 - 1989.



  • sexton ming: out to stud
        (2004, cd, uk, rim records)
    • Sexton Ming recorded Captain Beefheart's 'Twenty-Fifth Century Quaker' on his "Out To Stud" album.
      The RIM record label says "Specialists in Outsider Music", and that should give you a fair idea of what's on this album.
      "Out To Stud" is a good example of a low-fi Do It Yourself project.
      I like it. Sexton Ming's version of 'Twenty-Fifth Century Quaker' fits in very nicely.

  • spoedbult: natuurtroebel
        (2007, cdr, bel, lama recordings 019)
    • I know for sure that I mentioned this release last year, but for one reason or another, I never added the data to the UM-files.
      If you want a taste of Lama Recordings, Spoedbult's "Natuurtroebel" is a nice place to start. It's in Dutch, and it might scare away your neighbours, but it's fresh, and even a little bit weird.

some old stuff, some new stuff.
plus some very old stuff and some very new stuff.


Yesterday, I went to JH Merlijn in Wezembeek-Oppem (which is near Brussels in Belgium) for a concert of Cpt. Cheese-Beard & The 7 Sisters Of Prevention. I had seen them before, about half a year ago, so I knew that I was in for a treat.

The concert was good. Especially Vanessa (on vocals) made an overwhelming impression.

The setlist might have looked something like this:

  • 2008/02/09 concert 'JH Merlijn', Wezembeek-Oppem, Belgium
    • Heavy Duty Judy, Cosmik Debris, Titties & Beer, Pygmy Twylyte, Son Of Orange County, More Trouble Every Day, The Torture Never Stops, Peaches En Regalia, Uncle Remus, Don't Eat The Yellow Snow, Nanook Rubs It, City Of Tiny Lites, Outside Now, Yo'Mama
    • encores: Black Napkins, Andy, Inca Roads, Sofa

It was great fun, but it was a pity that only about 70 people turned up for this gig.
I had a nice chat with Fred, Jos & Zjakki, and I saw a lot of familiar faces, but not enough!
I know, we're all getting old(er), but it's these kind of concerts that keep you young. So better make sure that you'll be there next time!!

Oh yes, here's another little package of information. Useless to some, fascinating to others.
There's some familiar looking album covers, a couple of news flashes, and a pile of Fattore Zeta albums.
What else does one need on a friday night.


In 1987, The Morticians released a single that used the Mothers' "Freak Out" album cover as an inspiration. says:

Redfern Bros. began to play in the mid-80s as The Giant Sunhorse; at the beginning of 1986 they found bassist Ben Jackson and changed name to The Morticians, releasing this delicious sweet at the end of next year. An explosive punk side (those who don't know one original at least, lift up their own hand) and a visionary psych-side made few lucky owners happy. the first pressing of 500 ran out very soon and so did the second one of little more than a thousand, but Ben's leaving caused dissolution. At the end of 1988 a compilation of early recordings (demos and live sets) titled "She's like heroin" came out on Distortion Records.

Japanese band The Newest Model used the cover of The Mothers' "Freak Out" album for one of their CD-single releases.

Two lovely events that should be worth your while in Eugene & Corvallis.

Drummer Glenn Leonard's one-man marimbapercussionloopthing will be appearing with some equally nutty goofballs at Cozmic Pizza. Here's the scoop:


8th & Charnelton
Eugene OR

LAROMLAB- Laromlab provides classic sound blips of old school video game systems, such as the Atari and Commodore 64, which create a macrocosm of music that arouses one`s senses to the state of nostalgia. And he is joined by Robotcowboy, A futuristic expatriate American Space Ranger combines wearable computing, midi guitar, and live energy to wander the digi-range as a robotcowboy playing for dying astronauts. This is a lofi-guitar-compu-show with algorithmic balls from a DEVOspud, laptop-stomping idiot wearing exposed electronics! SGT LEONARD- Sgt. Leonard`s Loopy Arts Dub Band is a one-man multi-dimensional musical presentation which transcends boundaries. Percussion loops are set up before your very eyears to form a virtual drum circle. Melodic lines are set up as well on marimbas.and the journey begins. Seatbelts are optional but not provided.

And then, a sheer 19 days later Pojama People welcome guitarist Brian Berg Olsen into the fold. You can call him B-Bo if you like. I do. Since we now have two Brians in the band, concierto de toto en solana beach belly up april 20 Brian Casey will solidify his nomenclature as his some-time alias Tanglehead. We may begin to refer to Ted as Banana Slug but we don't wanna hurt his feelings.or his image. It *is* a smashing baseball hat that he wears, though.

Besides their very fine "(R)umori Jazz" album, Fattore Zeta has about a dozen small print run releases available on CDR. They're made on demand, and they're really worth checking out.

I added them to the Fattore Zeta discography today.

  • name: s/t
        (1981, 12"EP, usa, private release)
    • Here's another Henry Kaiser / Captain Beefheart related release.
      From 1981.
      Rick Snyder adds:
      "NAME is composed of six youthful musicians--they appear to be in their late teens and early twenties  --who grew up together near Disneyland, moved to Berkeley and; formed a band. Meeting local guitarist Henry Kaiser at one of his gigs, they asked him to fill in for an ailing member. The relationship  solidified and now Kaiser is one of three electric guitarists in the group. Erling Wold and Judilh Stadtman play the other Guitars,  (Wold doubling on keyboards).  Lynn Murdock and Rick Crawford  play electric bass. Mark Crawford  plays drums, and Everett Shock  adds declamatory vocals and  screeching sax lines.
      This EP is also engineered and co-produced by PHIL BROWN (who would later perform the same duties for CAPTAIN BEEFHEART on his "ICE CREAM FOR CROW" LP!)."


Here's another great batch of pictures from slime.oofytv.set's collection.

"New CD on Zonic Entertainment this summer."


  • the residents: animal lover instrumental
        (2007, cd, usa, ralphamerica)
    • "Animal Lover Instrumental" is out. It's another Ralpharmerica release, and it's a limited edition of 1000 numbered copies.
      concierto de toto en solana beach belly up april 20 Resafinados are probably listening to this album right now. If you're not a Residents Freak, and only know them from some of their better known albums, you might consider giving "Animal Lover Instrumental" a try. Repetitive, child-like melodies, combined with haunting gong sounds and guitar lines.
    • I like it a lot.


  • netjajev society system: s/t
        (2008, cdr-promo, sweden, ??)
    • Every once in a while, bizarre things happen at the UM headquarters. I would classify this little Netjajav Society System promo as one of them.
      The Netjajev Sound System (or artist Magnus Lundberg) will have an album out next April. According to what I hear on this promo disc, it will be an hardcore / noise / punk album.
      It's not really my cup of tea, but that might just be me.

Last Friday, I saw Aka Moon in concert at 'De Singer' in Rijkevorsel, Belgium.

'De Singer' is a fine jazz club and I've seen quite a few bands performing there. Last Friday, however, the venue was almost too small for Aka Moon. The place was loaded.
This was the first time that I saw Aka Moon live, and I loved it. I do know a couple of their albums, and these are amazing, but what these guys do on stage is unbelievable.

And it's all a matter of taste, as I saw at least 5 people in the audience that own the entire Zappa catalogue. 

I've added an Aka Moon entry to UM, if only to add their discography and some data on various live shows.

  • aka moon: amazir
        (2006, cd, ??, cypres records cypres open 01)
    • Aka Moon's latest album is called "Amazir", and it's a perfect introduction to Aka Moon.
      Probably best described as an avant-garde jazz trio, Aka Moon is so much more. It's a perfect mixture of different styles, and yet immediately recognisable. It's Aka Moon.
      Check them out.

Here's a nice little piece of an interview with Frank Zappa, as published in Society Pages (the US zappa fanzine) number six. We're talking 1991. It's quite interesting to read how Zappa is amused and pleased by some of the things that his fans are doing. And even the Arf Society gets a mention.
I remember reading the interview when it came out, years ago, and I was quite suprised. Not only because FZ had taken the time to talk with Denn & Rob, but also because he seemed really interested. It looked like it might become an interesting symbiosis, FZ and Society Pages. Unfortunately, the mag folded in 1992 (not mentioning the 1994 issue).
