The Zappateers are an international collection of freaks
dedicated to the music of the legendary American composer Frank Zappa (1940-1993).
Held together in this global village by the internet, the Zappateers have several distinct goals:
- To further the appreciation of the music of Frank Zappa
- To encourage the purchase and enjoyment of Zappa’s huge and varied back catalogue
- To complete the task of collecting all 800-odd audience recorded Zappa performances
- To share all audience recordings and commercially released bootlegs with one another and the wider internet community without profit, and thereby to undermine the illegal trade in Zappa material
- To find the best, most complete versions of shows
- To uphold and respect the Zappa Family Trust’s rights to the legitimate releases
Thanks to my fellow Zappateers, I was able to give FZ's 1984 Brussels show another listen.
That was the second time I show Frank in concert (first time being 1982).
Hard to imagine that it's almost 35 years ago...
