Merchandise

DED - 10-4-2007 at 12:57

Anthill Trading has made a deal with the Zappa Family trust to oversee all merchandising efforts in relation to Frank Zappa, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention and Zappa Plays Zappa.

New York, New York (Billboard Publicity Wire) April 4, 2007 -- Anthill Trading is honored to announce that we have entered into an alliance with the Zappa Family Trust. Anthill will oversee all aspects
of merchandising not only for Frank Zappa (http://www.zappa.com) but also for the critically-acclaimed touring concert series Zappa Plays Zappa, featuring Dweezil Zappa.

Anthill recognizes not just the musical contributions Frank Zappa made but also the enormous visual impact his work contains. It is therefore with pride that we will work alongside Frank's wife Gail in memorializing the entire Zappa legacy through a comprehensive assortment of lifestyle products that will appeal to his legions of fans worldwide.

Frank Zappa was a composer, guitarist, singer, film director and satirist. In his more than 30 year career Frank Zappa established himself as a prolific and distinctive musician - composer - band leader. Zappa originated the first concept album in Rock & Roll and worked in substantially every musical genre, creating music for rock bands, jazz ensembles, synthesizers and symphony orchestra and is recognized today as one of the great composers of the last century. And he proved that humor does indeed belong in Music.

Zappa self produced almost every one of the more than sixty albums he released with the Mothers of Invention or as a solo artist. He amassed an enormous archive consisting of thousands of live recordings spanning even beyond his performing career. In addition to his music recordings he created feature length and short films, graphic art and album covers. Civilization - , Phase III (the third part of his Masterwork trilogy which also includes Lumpy Gravy & We're Only In It For The Money) earned a Grammy for the album art. He received multiple Grammy nominations and eventually was presented with a Grammy award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1987 for the album "Jazz From Hell," albeit it, off camera. Other dubious achievements: In 2005 Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #71 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and, posthumously inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, he is possibly the first inductee whose music was refused a performance at the actual ceremony.

Zappa Plays Zappa- After cocooning himself away in the studio for more than a year learning to play his father's music note for note and in fact, relearning his picking style in order to address parts that were never intended to be played on the guitar, in 2006 Dweezil Zappa hand selected a band of new, young musicians as well as some legendary Zappa alumni to help him present the first official live concert event of Frank Zappa's music since his untimely death in 1993. While not yet confirmed there are plans to take the tour down under in the months ahead.

About Anthill Trading
Anthill Trading, founded in 1996, is a New York based merchandising company specializing in the exploitation of some unique music, entertainment, and lifestyle properties. Exclusive global representation of some of the world's most prestigious icons and trademarks is under the direction of industry veterans and Anthill founders Cathy Cleghorn and Norman Perry. From their roots in the concert promotion business, both Cleghorn and Perry have developed a keen sense of how to merge the very specific merchandise goals of their artists with the desires of their audiences.

Korn management confirms drummer exit

DED - 12-4-2007 at 19:16

Korn's management has confirmed that temporary drummer Terry Bozzio has completed his work on the band's new record and is no longer working with the group. Bozzio, a legendary drummer known for his work with Missing Persons and Frank Zappa, plays on some but not all tracks on the album. Bozzio will also not be joining Korn on the road, with a new touring drummer yet to be announced. Brooks Wackerman of Bad Religion played with the band two weeks ago at a youth volunteer show in Los Angeles, but is not expected to tour with them.

Bozzio replaced founding drummer David Silveria in January, after Silveria announced at the end of 2006 that he was taking a "hiatus" from Korn for at least one album and tour.

Korn's eighth studio effort is due out in June. The band will headline the 2007 Family Values tour starting in mid-July, with Evanescence, Hellyeah, Atreyu, Trivium and Flyleaf also on the bill. The on-sale date for most of the shows is April 28th.

Hey Punky, if you want the zappa forum to go straight to the post in question you can do the following:

http://www.zappa.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=363669&highlight#36...

You get the post number by hitting quote on the post you want highlighted and then copying the post number from the link in the address field after the quote editor has loaded. There's no obligation to submit the quote, of course. The viewtopic.php command works with a post number p= instead of a topic number t=.

This is something that has the best to offer it, for everyone, I think.
Gail has at least said now that she's up for talking about options as to online distribution thru dl's or streams or whatever.
She hadn't done that before.
And with her coming up now more frequently, if the geezers with the online pipes and the fanatic techs step up to make it work and the difficulty of 'encryption' is worked out ( . . .! . . .)
there is finally something else to talk about, positively in addition to the faltering and gimmegimme fanny-tripes when the new releases come along.

My thought is that the zpz dvd sales exceeded expectations, which allowed for broader release of that in different formats and maybe even cover production costs for new releases this year.

I hope that the statement she made that you pipointed above polyd is not a conditional statement or based solely on the context. That is, that there would be 4 releases this year if an on online pipe could be set up. The way she words it, leaves open that possibility I fear. An argument could be made I think that is what she means, despite everyone's wishes or expectations to the contrary. . .

Well, with PCs it should be easier than figuring it out by hand, but you will have to learn ancient Egyptian. And studying Linear A is cursed, btw. But solving it brings instant fame!

Yeah i know the feeling....Anyone wanna give a ball park figure on how much that little sucker is going to put you back?? I'll go first 40$?

I guess $35 dollars... $40 if you want to buy it at a Dutch store.

Pappawas1975 - 25-11-2008 at 21:14

I think this is going to be nice.....

I have a copy of the original instrumental LG, which I do love, but will be nice to get everything sounding good and polished as possible, as you mentioned, poly...

BBP - 25-11-2008 at 22:22

LG's been my favourite since I first heard it, and every time I play it I just sit still, listen, and chuckle at Louie the Turkey. I used to have a friend who laughed like that: usually I tried not to make him laugh because of it. (And the volume of his laugh would hurt your ears).

Not sure if I'll buy Lumpy Money. It's going to be very hard to get, and this far I haven't really played any new release the way I play the CP3-and-earlier material. Not even Wazoo.

That will come with time,surely? Same for me, actually, but I think this is because they are new releases, y'know? ( and due to the fact I discovered Zappateers! )

Joe's Menage was on the other day actually. Great!

BBP - 26-11-2008 at 15:47

A lot of newer releases (like Imaginary Diseases) just don't have the same vibe. Or the same start-to-finish superb quality.

From the Los Angeles Times
obituary

Zappa Drummer Jimmy Carl Black, 70, Dies
Los Angeles Times
November 7, 2008
Jimmy Carl Black, the original drummer in Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, a band that helped define the sub-genre of art rock, died of cancer Saturday. He was 70.

He died in Siegsdorf, Germany, according to Roddie Gilliard, who performed with Black in recent years as part of the Muffin Men, a British group that specialized in performing Zappa's music live.

A note on Black's official website stated, "Jimmy passed away peacefully. ... Jimmy says hi to everybody, and he doesn't want anybody to be sad."

He moved to Germany in the 1990s after marrying a German woman following the death of his first wife.



James Inkanish Jr. was born Feb. 1, 1938, in El Paso, Texas, but was reared in nearby Anthony, N.M. He changed his name after his mother married Carl Black.

He lived in Anthony for 19 years, started playing piano at age 6 and took up trumpet in high school but switched to drums when he joined the Air Force in 1958 because "there weren't any trumpets in rock 'n' roll."

Black moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and formed the Soul Giants with Roy Estrada and Ray Collins. When the group's guitarist was drafted, they hired Zappa, who took over as leader and changed the band's name to the Mothers of Invention.

After Zappa disbanded the Mothers in 1969, Black appeared in Zappa's 1971 film "200 Motels" and went on to play in a variety of musical collaborations. Zappa died of prostate cancer in 1993.

Black quit playing music entirely at times, once earning a living working in a doughnut shop and later as a house painter and decorator.

He reunited with former Mothers Bunk Gardner and Don Preston as the Grandmothers, performing vintage Zappa songs and other original compositions.

Black is survived by his second wife, Monika; six children; and several grandchildren.

scallopino - 30-11-2008 at 13:30

:(

I didn't know about it. Thanks for posting that Ded.

BBP - 30-11-2008 at 16:13

There was this mass mourning at the Zappa forum... which of course Isaac messed up...

scallopino - 1-12-2008 at 05:48

What did he do?

I guess the thing about all of FZ's band members - especially in the original Mothers - they weren't just sidemembers. They had huge personalities and played such a big part in the early Zappa mythology. It's really sad. Poor Jimmy.

punknaynowned - 21-1-2009 at 21:37

Vista is on this machine B and it snapped it right up and loaded it automatically in winamp.
I don't know where the system put it .. .:freak:
but I can listen to it. Can't you override the protocol somehow?

BBP - 22-1-2009 at 19:43

Maybe you've got something disabled that we have enabled. But our PC gives us much problems with downloading. It's why I can't upgrade this place.

punknaynowned - 23-1-2009 at 09:56

unfortunately this was sold to me used and 'worked on'. The bugs were worked out supposedly but it allows some things and doesn't others. So I don't know what all it can do. I didn't make it.
As far as the radio show, I'll see if I have a cassette tape and can get it give decent playback.
I can't find the file but can play it. The cassette recorder I have is old and may give a distorted or hissy tape when played back. I'll see.

BBP - 23-1-2009 at 15:00

Oh you really have to take care with secondhanders. I have one. The previous owner left some sensitive information on it.
Vista's security is especially annoying when playing PC games. I spent two days figuring out how to navigate around the password bug in Leisure Suit Larry 5. It never really played Phantasmagoria properly. Ugh.

It also gave me serious problems with college: some teachers publish their text through Internet, and then I couldn't download them with IE, so I needed to use Opera, and then I'd only be able to see the first page...

Oh yeah... though I have been to the same concerts as other forum members before, and failed to meet them. We'd arranged a Zappa Forum Meeting just before the 2006 Amsterdam show, and every single person who was supposed to be there, forgot about that. I lost track of time when I was talking to a very nice Dweezil fan in the VIP box.

punknaynowned - 27-11-2009 at 12:19

You might think so, but the AUD tape is pretty great.
It'll be sweet to get a Soundboard even if it is boosted to max levels like Buffalo...
IMO, all these vaulternative show releases have 3 or 4 stand out tracks and the rest is 'standard' live zappa (Wazoo was the exception to this so far as far as I can tell).
For instance, though there are a number of things also found on ZINY there are also a number of things that aren't there like Find Her Finer and You didn't Try To Call Me. Black Napkins runs over 18 minutes!
Bianca is a real treat on these last two as well!!

For me it'll be like going back to my childhood and listening to The King Biscuit Flour Hour on the radio late at night with that warm '70's FM sound

Looking forward to it!

How are the liner notes? Any interesting information in that?

polydigm - 1-12-2011 at 01:00

The notes are okay, there are no particular highlights. The big deal is the recording itself which is pretty good. I'm impressed anyway. Gail doesn't sound too far out like she can some times.

It's funny that Don got a blank orange panel where they gallery the individual players but his picture is included elsewhere, so he wasn't left out. I'll bet the issue was that they had difficulty finding appropriate pictures of the correct vintage. Don looks like he was photoshopped in, which means they went out of their way to include him, as opposed to snubbing him like some of the zappa.com freaks seem to think.

KAPTKIRK - 18-7-2012 at 05:37

That is the general consenses over there zappa.com and I've heard about GZ not wanting anything to do with DP after some slight he said or did.I don't think I'd get along with GZ had we been in the same place for awhile.That GZ speak is like a hippie on Lord Of The Rings majic dust.I can't make sense of half of it.That "watch the skies" stuff is just silly,Cosmic Debri talk.I think FZ married a latent zircon encrusted hippie with a poodle fetish! She seems to vasilate between Good Gail.:forumsmiley123: and Bad Gail.:forumsmiley103: when it comes to alumni.DP never did get writing credit for King Kong.I should get a chance to ask him on the 26th of July whats up with that.Anyone got any good questions for any of the Grandmothers I can corral into a conversation?

ask Nappy, to give an anecdote about the origins of San Ber'dino, or
to all of them, where was the first Holiday Inn?
or Howard Johnson's?
Don and Bunk have records together, and I wonder if they do anything like Don's Agon

KAPTKIRK - 19-7-2012 at 09:14

Sure,I was in the Palamino one time right after I heard San Ber'dino.I had to stop in and check it out.Had chicken wire around the stage to stop the bottles.No shit! It's not in San Bernadino it's in Bakersfield.The county seat is in San Bernadino.Hence,"they gave him 30 days in San Ber'dino" as the locals call it.That's where the jail is. {-

I missed ZPZ on this tour. Didn't know they were coming. To Utrecht. Which I specifically asked them to come to since it's in the middle of The Netherlands and therefore not an infernal drive to any visitor from any part of the country.

Insert brain here.

That's got to hurt. Were you not reading any of the threads about upcoming tour venues? I lost interest after discovering they weren't coming to Adelaide last April.

I was but I only ever read about the US on those. They didn't mention Europe. And I don't go around checking Dweezil's website, that messes up my cookies.

Messes up your cookies? How?

I can understand you not wanting to go to Dweezil's site given he's not your favourite person anymore.

Oh the cookie thing was just a bad joke.

Roxy video is completed and will be released soon. Downloads of YCFOSA are coming soon. Hell has frozen over.

Hell's truly appeared to have frozen over now that Dweezil will be headlining Zappanale.

It may sound like a bad joke:
