Idiot Bastard Son Redux

The Idiot Bastard, in conjunction with Cordelia Records, is concocting a pretty cool project:

(…) to produce a CD of 20 different versions of Frank Zappa’s The Idiot Bastard Son to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the release of the album it first appeared on (We’re Only In It For The Money) next January – which also happens to be when The Idiot’s 50th birthday is!

Which reminds me: would you guys be interested in a double/triple/quadruple release of The Voice Of Cheese? Fancy artwork and superior mixing included?

    I think it’s a great idea, but would the online editions stop?

    as a contributor to the voice of cheese-(well my contribution comes up soon!) i would be delighted to have the opportunity to buy a copy of the cheese chortlers displayed in a fine funky fashion and mixed by a pro….i am sure i am not alone in this.

    Good idea! Pre-order now and get your name printed in the booklet!

    Ryan: the online editions wouldn’t stop — to the extent that people continue to submit their tracks obviously, something which has slowed down significantly in recent weeks. There’s currently 11 songs still in the queue which at this point would mean a grand total of about 30 tracks. If I’m going to have that properly mixed and aurally beauty-fied, it’ll have to be a 2 CD package.

    Jonnybutter: the artwork will most probably be done by Dr Sharl — and quite exquisitely so I reckon! However, nothing should keep you from purchasing one of my Limited! Autographed! Tom Waits! Drawings! * nasty cough *

    (I would love to purchase lovely artwork in various forms if I wasn’t a musician and….poverty-laden!).

    We are already brainstorming (or at least braindrizzling :) ) to produce a very special thing here. Stay tuned…

    Brainbuzzling?… (“Brainbuzzled by looove!…”)

    Braindrizzling is good!
