Something to cheer up our french readers: Les Fils de l’Invention announce a Special Zappa Evening, to take place in Paris, 27 August. Several Z-movies will be projected (including one where both the Monkees and Frank appear!), and rumour has it Gail Zappa will be attending the event.
Keeping up the good tradition of posting totally unrelated links, here’s a bunch of adequately mutilated Re-Versed Rock Lyrics. Check out Smells Like Holy Spirit which is particularly -uh- like totally bitchin! Amen Sister Mari!
thebignote.com has just updated its collection of Zappa-mp3’s at myplay. Some interesting tracks: Chunga’s Revenge with Dweezil (Wembley 4/19/88) and Filthy Habits (Providence 3/16/88). Also be sure to check out the tribute page which has a whole bunch of neat-o stuff awaiting you.
A damn fine Zappa-page was recently added to Barry’s Add A Page section. Click ZapGuz and behold the goodies!
On a side note: are you a FREAK?
News you say?
Loads of interesting poop at UK-based idiot bastard, including an exclusive Muffinz-mp3 called Another Bag Of Spoons (from a live concert at Kln 98).
Now go away! I’m watching Homer take the ride on the MonoRail – great episode.
On the internet, this is old news but – did anyone catch this thread off of affz ? It appears Patrick Neve, eminent Grand Wazoo of the Upper Echelon affz crowd (they fuck you if you don’t like their hat, and they like to play PRANKS during the initiation), will no longer be maintaining Splat’s Pages. Arf dot ru, Naurin and Cornelius have offered to take over the pages. They are and have always been a great point of reference, so I hope they remain online in some way or another.
Worth mentioning: Zappanale taking place july 27- 28.
Worth waiting for: America The Beautiful, Moon Unit’s new book.
Very nice: here’s an mp3 from Will Riley at planet of idiots: Orchestral Music.

In Holland there’s a radio-station that devoted an entire year (if not more) to broadcasting FZ-tunes. It’s to be found right here. The site seems interesting enough – has articles relating to Va and Bozzio and such – but the real treat is the “Enter the Zappa Archive” button. When you click this, it asks you for a password and, god darnit, I ain’t got one… Hello? Anyone know the pass for this?
