A MUFFIN MEN UPDATE

Roddie says:

the muffin men are currently in the studio finishing off some original material.

2009 has been a year of none-zappa activities for the muffinz, due in part to the sad death of singer/drummer jimmy carl black, along with the current/difficult climate for performing live zappa material.
next year sees the band performing selected gigs as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations.

it is still being decided which ways to release the original material, although some of it will be incorporated into the 4th volume of "muffinz movies" which is currently in production. an engineer on the sessions describes the material as "diverse, some very rocky, some very silly, pretty much what you would expect from them".
musicians involved include jumpy, waco, rhino, mikey and roddie
