Merchandise


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. The result is an exceptional and eclectic roster, which includes AC/DC, David Bowie, Blondie, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Dashboard Confessional, Deep Purple, RUN DMC, Iggy Pop, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, The Tragically Hip, Nelly Furtado and The Police.

Korn management confirms drummer exit


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=.




Have the courage of your convictions.

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. . .
