They have also surprisingly performed onstage with THE RESIDENTS in Prague, Czech Republic in 1995 which was recorded and released as Disc 2 of The Residents album "Freak Show". [Mirek Wanek was music director and conductor of that show]. In 2010 they were performing with Randy, the Residents' singer, 13 Residents' songs in Wanek's arrangement for UJD.

RAMON TARANCO - CUBAN BLUES MAN

Ramon Taranco's latest album is entitled "Cuban Blues Man".
Born in Canada, Ramon moved to Canada with his parents at the age of 5. He also lived and performed in New York City for quite a number of years.

"Cuban Blues Man" shows his musical influences.
Blues infused with latin grooves.
I like it.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - SHERWOOD AT THE CONTROLS - VOLUME 2: 1986-1990


This second volume of "Sherwood At The Controls" documented the production work of Adrian Sherwood. 16 tracks. 16 different artists. All produced and / or remixed by Adrian Sherwood.
Track 11 is KMFDM's 'Don't Blow Your Top (Adrian Sherwood Remix)', a track that uses lyrics from different zappa tunes, previously released by KMFDM in 1988.



VARIOUS ARTISTS - CONCERT DU 30 MARS 2002 - UNE SOUFFLE POUR LA VIE



Recorded and released over fifteen years ago, "Concert Du 30 Mars 2002 - Une Souffle Pour La Vie" was a fundraiser for the battle against mucoviscidose.
The idea for both the concert and the album came from the students of the Lycée Notre Dame de Guingamp.
During the concert, FZ's 'My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama' was performed by Marlu (vocals), Pat O'May (lead guitar), Patrice Marzin (guitar), Stéphane Rama (bass) and Fred Moreau (drums).
It became track 9 on the album.
A fine addition to The Others Of Invention section over at the United Mutations Archives.


YIN YIN


"The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers" by YIN YIN is getting a red vinyl release on the Les Disques Bongo Joe record label.
Also out on CD.



DAVE HARTL RELEASES ZAPPA TRIBUTE ALBUM

If you like Fred Händl's performance of FZ's music, or if Mats Öberg's Zappa tribute is your thing, you definitely need to hear Dave Hartl's "Pianist Dementia - Music Of Frank Zappa" album.

Download available from Bandcamp,
and also released on CD !!

VARIOUS ARTISTS - HEAVY METAL MASTERS LIVE

Another nice find.
This 3CD set (from 2004) is in fact a 2CD compilation album plus a bonus CD which probably also is the reason why it is housed in a 2CD jewel case ?!?
Anyway, the bonus disc includes G3 (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Eric Johnson, plus Mike Keneally in the backing band) performing FZ's 'My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama'.
Taken from the 1997 G3 "Live In Concert" album.


LES MATCHBOXX - LE CHEMIN DE LA ROUTE

French band Les Matchboxx have released several versions of their « Le Chemin De La Route » album. Originally released as an 8-track mini-album (CD) in 1997, it got re-released on vinyl in 2015, adding 7 bonus tracks. One of these bonus tracks was a live version of FZ’s (Theme From) Lumpy Gravy. This 2015 vinyl release plus one bonus track got re-released on CD in 2019, using the 1997 album cover…

LEBOCAL - OH NO! ... JUST ANOTHER FRANK ZAPPA MEMORIAL BARBECUE


After having released a first (eponymous) album in 2000 and a second one (“Collectif Etc…”) in 2002, French big band LeBocal released an 11-track Frank Zappa tribute album in 2003. It featured former Zappa band (Grand and Petit Wazoo) trombone player Glenn Ferris and presented 11 tracks, rearranged by members of the big band collective.
A 4-track, limited edition CD EP with alternative versions and one unreleased track got issued together with the first batch of LeBocal’s Zappa tribute album.
Small print says "ne peut être vendu séparément" (not to be sold separately).
Not easy to find but a fine addition to the album.

  1. chunga's revenge (variations) (unreleased)
  2. take your clothes off when you dance (alternate take)
  3. little umbrellas (alternate take)
  4. king kong (alternate take)
