DANIELE SEPE UPDATE

To celebrate the excellent radio show that recently turned up (Daniele Sepe Septet performing Zappa and more), the United Mutations website now features the Daniele Sepe discography.

Over at : http://www.united-mutations.com/s/danielesepe.htm

DWEEZIL ZAPPA UPDATE

Dweezil Zappa started a campaign to keep the legal rights to use his last name as a performing artist.
Yes, I know. Strange (but true).

He's getting there, but he might need a bit of extra help...

http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/othersofintention

And there's some nice stuff that you can order to support the cause, including a download of 'Dinosaur', a soaring 11-minute guitar instrumental composed by Dweezil Zappa that features guest solos by: James Santiago, David Walliman, Matt Picone, Tom Quayle, Oz Noy, Derryl Gabel, Chris Buono and Frank Zappa!


THE UNIVERSE BY EAR


Taken from the upcoming album 'The Universe By Ear'
(Czar Of Revelations, March 2017)

Video/Edit by Pascal Grünenfelder & The Universe By Ear


Where is it written that there may only be one Big Bang? In Summer 2015, to the day 13,8 billion years after the first one, The Universe By Ear have initiated another big boom. Since then basses tear black holes into space, drums dart like unstoppable comets through zero gravity and guitars paint stripes of fire on the horizon. Three bold and daring musicians fom Basel/Switzerland have gartered for this mission, to lead rock to places no one has ever set foot before: a complex, colourful, suprising, hard and melodic landscape in a cosmos, in which improvised freefall and structured form coexist peacefully. Fasten your seatbelts, because we are off to explore The Universe By Ear! The debut-single 'Seven Pounds' was released in May 2016. The new selftitled debut album will be out on March 24th 2017 via Czar Of Revelations.

ANOTHER ZAPPA RADIO SHOW ALBUM

Another Zappa radio show album has been spotted : "Live At The Palladium 1977".
Which isn't necessarily bad news, although I would appreciate it if the Zappa Family Trust would jump to this opportunity and release these radio shows themselves.


To be released on CD in a couple of weeks...
