Ed Palermo on arranging Frnk Zpp for big band

Zappa and Jazz
I don’t consider my Zappa project any kind of crusade or following any trend for that matter. It’s just music I love. I’m often asked if the jazz community will ever embrace Zappa’s music. I have no idea. I don’t even really care. Maybe that’s a selfish point of view, but life is short. Why waste time worrying about such stuff. Zappa himself said before he died that he didn’t care how he was remembered or even IF he was remembered. Eventually, I and my band will stop doing this Zappa project and go back to my original material, once again happily outnumbering the audience.

The way Barry sees it...

The Year of the Freak is Immiment
Oh yes it is. Let’s see which sites, bands and organisations have had legal action taken against them by the ZFT in recent weeks, shall we?

* Us here at KUR (non-profit fan site)
* Ugly Radio Rebellion (non-profit tribute band)
* Project/Object (non-profit tribute band)
* Bogus Pomp (non-profit tribute band)
* Sheik Yerbouti (non-profit tribute band)
* Zappanale Festival (non-profit Zpp festival)
* Arf Society (non-profit fan site)

Quoth The Idiot Bastard:

Apparently Gail has even threatened to remove and destroy the likeness of FZ that is in Bad Doberan – “Yes, we would definitely consider having it replaced with something we do approve,” she said.

I know you’re getting sick and tired of this dear reader — so am I.

That’s the point.

Spread the word if you can, by any means.

A permanent page, objectively documenting the progression of any of these Law Suits is in the works, and will be published as more information becomes publicly available.

Update: had to add tribute band Ugly Radio Rebellion to the list as they too are now being sued by the ZFT for alleged copyright infringement.

Carry on, Barry. Don't let the tone-deaf Zappa™ Family Trust kill the music.

Which bands, organisations and websites have heard from Gail Zappa's lawyers?

Way to honor Frank's legacy and keep the music alive. I'm still waiting for my cease-and-desist order.

Gail has messed by mind up

The good folks at Kill Ugly Radio received a cease-and-desist order from the Zappa™ Family Trust's lawyers.

To have transcriptions on our website of long-out-of-print magazine interviews with FZ™, which took me many late hours to type out and at times translate? Dude!

To present snippets of FZ™ lyrics on our website which showcase his incredible sense for Conceptual Continuity? What were we thinking!

To have artwork of FZ™ releases up on our discography section, so that readers would know what their next purchase at Barfko Swill could be? Not done, period!

All kidding aside: we believe the material posted on this website would fall well within the definitions of “fair use” in the event of a lawsuit. However, we simply lack the financial means to fund such a lawsuit.

Drop by their blog and show them some love.
