...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

Project/Object Feat. Frank Zappa Alumni Ike Willis & Don Preston to Tour US Spring 2016

Project/Object Feat. Frank Zappa Alumni Ike Willis & Don Preston to Tour US Spring 2016Project/Object is the longest continually touring alumni-based Zappa tribute band in the world. For over twenty years they have toured with more Zappa alumni than anyone other than Zappa himself. Their legendary tours of the USA, Canada, and Europe have paved the way for a rich variety of other excellent, contemporary Zappa tributes.

Project/Object is the band that brought most of the currently touring Zappa band alumni out of retirement and onto the road. The list of Zappa alumni that have appeared with the band includes musicians from the firstMothers Of Invention album thru the last Zappa tour in 1988. Project/Object is back in action in April 2016 with a tour that reunites old friends Ike Willis & Don Preston. This tour will feature material that each of them recorded with Frank, as well as their personal favorites, plus Zappa classics from every era.

Ike Willis, voice of Joe's Garage and Thingfish, handled lead vocals and rhythm guitar for virtually every Zappa Band tour and album from 1978 thru the final FZ tour of 1988. Ike's booming baritone is the most requested presence by fans worldwide.
