FZ-fan Lou Allred is hosting a “Day In The Desert With Frank” for the second year in a row — be quick though because the event is scheduled for next Sunday. Attending are Bunk Gardner, Motorhead Sherwood, Candy Zappa, and members of the Black-Outs (schedules permitting). Admission free!
Here and here is how to help.
And, since I know he reads this weblog every evening, an open letter to
George W. Bush. Sadly, somehow we knew this would happen…

Doreen Speaks her Mind Out
Her private life, the rumours on the concerts and the conspiracy theories: read it all in Pickle magazine.
Paging Mario Fuente and all earthlings in LA!
Urgent! Chaffey College to “Freak Out” for Zappa: Full details are at www.palstudioz.com, but Saturday’s performers include a chamber music septet, a jazz fusion band and a surf rock group, a suitably eclectic lineup. Mario, don’t get any compromise for tomorrow evening at 7 PM and let us know how it went!!
KUR has got the exclusive!!
This telex from an undisclosed location has just arrived to KUR Headquarters; the sender is Doreen, who claims to be right on the firsts rehearsals from Dweez and Ahmet for the next concerts. Since this is breaking news, i’m posting the unedited version (sorry Barry, i think you’ll understand!). Here’s the literal translation of the message:
“Dear friends at KUR:
I’m in heaven listening to the band playing for the first time. They have been testing a lot of musicians like, erh…Cluuuck…I don’t remember the names because I’m still under the effect of some heavy grenadine we took last night; but there has been a lot of them. One thing you’ll find really interesting is that Ahmet takes care of his cutis with a cucumber mask, which makes it look smooth and gleaming.
So far, they have rehearsed: Zomby Fowl, I’m the Hen, Duck Tomago and Chicken in Bondage (at my request).
I only have eyes for “my” Joe tho’; btw, he brought a handy little oven he keeps in his dressing room, and every night he bakes a tape. Apparently he became “too used to do it” he needs to do it at least once a day.
Ok, enough for today, I’ll keep you guys posted as things develop.
I’m with the band!! Cluuck…
PS: I’m to the left in the picture. The stupid guy took my double chin…The other girls asked their identities to be protected. Seeya!”

The Misfortune of a Little Biped
Doreen is, once again, disconsolated and in grief from Travers’ inconsideration: “I was just surfing the internet, says Doreen, “when i saw that picture of Donny”
“I was shocked, we are like two peas in a pod, like two brown eggs in a cardboard box…”
The complete story here. Maybe YOU CAN do something to help!
Nappy On the Radio
Original music of Napoleon Murphy Brock will be broadcast next April 21 on Radio4FM from The Netherlands. The music was orchestrated by composer Tom Trapp. Very curious about this!

What’s a man to do in a situation like that?
Life Of Sin
It’s easier than “doing the bop”: if you are around Washington DC today, for the Inauguration Day of the mandate of the King George II, don’t forget to turn your back on Bush, if you can.
If otherwise you are around Cleveland this saturday 22, don’t miss “The World’s Greatest Sinner” at 8.30 on the Clev. Cinematheque, 11141 East Boulevard.
Both actions will make you in peace with your conscience,
i tell you.
