Good evening Bogus Pomp fans!
Just in case you were on vacation or had your computer crash or just plain checked out for a while, I want to remind you of the Bogus Pomp show coming up this August 21 at the fabulous Tampa Theatre www.tampatheatre.org This is not you normal concert. This a special event whose cost has been underwritten by a handful of loyal supporters and will feature the regular Bogus Pomp ensemble www.boguspomp.com plus approximately 15 members of the Florida Orchestra. As many of you already know, Bogus Pomp and The Florida Orchestra played two sold out shows in 1999 and 2000 and received critical acclaim from many throughout the music industry. People from all over the USA and several other countries attended the events. Both of those events featured a performance by the full 88 member Florida Orchestra followed by a two hour set by Bogus Pomp with Napoleon Murphy Brock in 2000 and Ike Willis in 1999.
The August 21 show will be somewhat different. It will be a joint show with the full Bogus Pomp ensemble and approximately 15 members of the Florida Orchestra performing together for the full two hour show. The music scores for all musicians have been written just for this show by Tom Trapp who will also conduct the show. We are very lucky to have an opportunity to see a concert of this caliber right here in the Tampa Bay area. And if you are reading this from out of town, it is worth the travel! The following is the set list:
set one: peaches en regalia * holiday in berlin (overture) * zoot
allures * big swifty * little umbrellas * who are the brain police? *
approximate * sleep dirt * king kong * black napkins * wild love * the
black page * t’mershi duween * dupree’s paradise

|I got an e-mail from Bret Hart.
Now, who, i hear you say, is Bret Hart. Well, he did add a couple of nice links to explain what he does (and that's why he is in this news-section).
For those of you with excellent memories and a fine record collection, Bret Hart also contributed (with El Freezepops) to "fester", the residents tribute album. They redid 'simple song':
Amongst Bret's other projects are his improvisational releases, two of which he made with Don Campau, a name that should ring a bell as well, and another one that he did with Ben Horrendous, of Fourfathers fame.

Andrew Jones wrote the following to the affz newsgroup:
If you can¹t be bothered to read this long a post, you may find the following synopsis is all you need:
Why?: To experience 5 days of Frank Zappa music with friends
Where: Bad Doberan, Eastern Germany close to the Baltic coast
Number of CDs bought: 6
Units of alcohol consumed: I wasn¹t paying attention.
Highlight of festival/ weekend: far too many to recount
Low point of festival: scheduling of bands on the last day, sound quality all weekend
Oddest comment of the weekend: Finns telling me that Welsh looked and sounded strange. Ever seen/ heard Finnish?
People I missed the most over the weekend: Claude, Alex, Antal and Penny
Biggest improvement over last year¹s Zappanale: a comfy double bed
Danke: Wolfhard and family, and the Arf Society
Now on with the story......
Thursday 24th July 5 am- a stupidly early time to start the day, but then I had a made a stupid mistake and booked a late morning flight from Stansted Airport (located on the wrong side of the London for those of us living in Cardiff) instead of an early evening flight. This piece of stupidity was obviously destiny as a few days after booking, Schroeder told me that rehearsals began at 8pm, Thursday long before my planned flight would depart for Lubeck. So hurray for stupidity.
The journey by rail, tube and rail again to Stansted was tedious but smooth, Stansted Airport was the model of inefficiency, but hey, the flight was cheaper than my rail fare to get there. The flight to Germany was enlightened by Ashley Khan¹s book on the making of Miles Davis¹ Kind of Blue and the passionate antics of the couple next to me- nice thong......
The flight was followed another train journey from
Lubeck to Bad Doberan, home of the Zappanale. At the Bad Doberan station
I rang Jaan in an attempt to find out where I was going to be staying
that night- you read right, I had travelled 12 and a half hours without
accommodation firmly nailed down. Jaan was somewhat vague when I spoke
to him, suggesting I got something to eat and meet them at the Kamp
Theatre at 8pm , which was 'easy to find', but somehow impossible to
One meal and half an hour of getting hopelessly lost later, I arrived in a park at 7.55 to be greeted by Schroeder who remarked he'd thought "You wouldn¹t miss the rehearsal" but......, I was, of course the last to arrive but it damn good to see Mike, Jaan, Jenny, Carsten and Jimmy Carl Black.
Rehearsals were in the Arf Society¹s offices- Jaan and Mike plugged their guitars into a metallic sounding PA, as all the amps were already at the Festival site. There were Zappanale posters all around including the poster with "Mike Keneally and Band" (not Mike Keneally and Friends-sigh) in typeset three times the size of the other bands. This meant that Mike, Jaan and Schroeder were very much the headliners and this was reflected in the seriousness of their work. As this was Zappanale, suggestions had gone back and forth between the band for Zappa songs, concentrating on songs in the main that were rarely performed at Zappanale. The aim was to get a set that was roughly 60% MK, 40% FZ.
There were lots of great moments in the rehearsal from the teenagers applauding widely from their listening point at the open window, to Carlo , the guitarist from Scouse Zappa-band the Muffin Men doing the same later on in the evening, Jenny falling asleep, to be woken by an impromptu version of Lennon¹s 'I¹m tired' by the band. Four hours passed quickly and it was then back to the bistro to hear Jaan sing the correct lyrics of the Finnish tango from the Helsinki Tapes 'Satumaa' to Napoleon Murphy Brock.
Jaan offered me (and Jenny) use of his hotel room to crash in for the festival (which was easier than the 5 in a room and 3 in the bed arrangements for Amsterdam). However when he was informed that he would be staying at the promoters he wasn¹t certain if we could crash. We needn¹t have worried. Wolfhard(the promoter) and all associated with the festival are extremely generous people and his house had a separate annex where normally his teenage daughters lived and where a number of the guests were housed for the festival. So instead of crashing in Jaan¹s room I ended up in a double bed of my own over a lounge fully equipped with a tv, hi-fi, vcd, dvd and comfy sofa. Bliss. I slept long and deep that night.
The following morning was spent breakfasting with
Jimmy Carl Black and wife (as you do) and generally relaxing in the back
garden making friends with the family dogs. chatting with the bi-lingual
compare Jim Cohen, listening to the chorus of crickets and looking
at the horses.
As Zappanale proper began Friday afternoon, we travelled down to the Festival site. Mike was sitting in with German band Octafish and went immediately over with band to sort out their arrangements for the songs he was sitting in with, there was no actual rehearsal as such.
We had met Octafish backstage at the Karlsrule gig in March and some of us had formed very definite opinions about the band. Nice people, but they gave off a ³student band² vibe. Some of us had used the phrase "well, they had better start rehearsing." Expectations were not that high, in all honesty.
Well, how wrong can you be?
(Except the part about them being amazingly nice)
Octafish are an amazingly tight jazz-funk outfit, playing with commitment, passion and ability. Most of their set was originals, but they did an incredibly tight Zappa medley with Mike which they had broken down into how many bars they were to play for each song. They also did a very good version of "Bulleys (sic)"
And then they persuaded Mike to play with them on their well deserved encore- their take on "Barbie Girl" at double speed ska.
They had earned their applause.
Next came up The Jack and Jim Show featuring Eugene Chadbourne (who arrived 6 hours later than planned) and Jimmy Carl Black. It took me a while to warm up to the set- one of the perils of being in the backstage bar with free drink and food- although the banjo version of Hot Rats was truly insane. Mike jammed with the band- Jimmy Carl Black was keen that this should happen and then it all came together with a song (loosely titled) "I Support The Troops, I Love My Mom and Dad (and now I want a refund)" which really struck home with lyrics like "I support the troops through my taxes (and now I want a refund) or least be allowed to decide who they invade".
Jaan, Jenny and I went out front for the Muffin Men¹s
set with Ike Willis and Napoleon Murphy Brock. There were some
disadvantages to this.
You could tell the Muffins were a little nervous- they weren¹t playing their normal set (that was to come the next day with JCB) but Carlo was playing some amazing guitar and the Muffins are a band who know their strengths and weaknesses and play to their strengths superbly. Great fun.
The evening was rounded off by Australian "party band" Prawns with Horns who sent the crowd off to bed in a damn fine mood. They were what the festival needed at that point. We all eventually got to bed late, some in better condition that others and slept the sleep of the blessed.
The musicians staying at Wolfhard¹s were all asked to be ready for breakfast at eleven to be held at the garden table for the benefit of MDR television. Jenny and I made damn sure we were not going to take part in this truly absurd venture, in part because we had no business being there- being non- combatents; and in part it meant the bathroom was free. I did take some photos of everybody trying to be natural at the breakfast table while being interviewed with large video cameras and boom microphones- hey I guess it happens every day......
Then Mike and I grabbed a lift to his guitar clinic
in Schwerin, travelling through the flat beautiful East German
countryside to an Industrial Museum which had a temporary but very
extensive Ibanez guitars exhibit. After a Iraqi lunch- nice bread- Mike
started off with an acoustic set. He had asked for a request of me
before hand- L¹il but I gradually came to the view a 'Desired Effect'
would be lovely which took Mike by surprise especially as it is in an
alternative tuning (how was I supposed to know that?). Then he switched
to electric. The place was packed- all the chairs were taken and people
were standing and sitting all around. A beer was part of entrance
fee- very civilised.
This being an Ibanez related event, Mike demonstrated on an Ibanez guitar how to play part of the Attitude Song by Steve Vai (the vibrato bar harmonics bit-if that makes any sense) and explained the challenges faced by him playing Steve¹s music with shorter fingers than Vai.
It was a fun time and people were impressed. We
then had to move fast to get back for Sheik Yerbouti¹s set which Mike
was guesting. When we reached Zappanale, Mike got immediately called on
stage to jam with the Muffin Men- lured by the offer of playing a Gibson
SG and then onto the Sheik Yerbouti band to finalise arrangements. The
Shiek Yerbouti band
Jenny, Jaan and I wandered out in the Festival grounds, with the sun eating down. Two semi clad men were outstretched on the ground burning in the sun. So Jenny started rubbing sun block on their faces and arms as they gradually returned to consciousness. There are worse ways you can wake up.
I was backstage for most of Dr Dark¹s set which
was dedicated to such amazing accurate Beefheart covers, you feared for
the man¹s voice.
Next up was Sex Without Nails Bros¹s musical
production of Joe¹s Garage, which divided people¹s opinions
dramatically. Schroeder was put off by the two introductions in German-
which he felt were patronising and arrogant and also delivered in a
pretty awful Austrian dialect. I think its fair to say his low opinion
was shared by Jaan, Jenny and myself.
Saturday ended up with a nod to the locals- Nina Hagen and Band were meant to headline, but she pulled out the night before with a ³skin complaint² (make of that what you will), so Philip Boa, a popular German new-wavish act was brought in at the last moment and went down a storm with the Germans there- quite a few had come just to see him- Bad Doberan not being on the regular concert circuit.
After some confusion we got back to the country house and unwound gradually in the open air preparing ourselves for sleep and the big day up ahead.
Sunday began with another open air breakfast- no complaints here- around half eleven and then for Mike and Jaan with another rehearsal session in the garden. Leaving Jenny to further sleep off the previous night¹s indulgences we arrived at the racetrack for Ike Willis and Stu Grimshaw¹s performance ³Der Fremde²- a musical performance with band and string quartet. It was lovely to hear Ike¹s voice in a different context than Zappa lyrics, and his Dick Van Dyke-esqe accent made a change from Thing Fish. The music hit the spot and I really need to hear n album of this music.
I suppose the fact that we had caught Ike¹s performance despite arriving late to the Zappanale site should have alerted us to the fact that things were behind schedule, but that kind of slipped us by...
Next up was an undoubted highlight of the weekend,
The Paul Green School of rock Music- 23 kids and young adults aged 12-17
playing Zappa music.
I had met some of the parents backstage over the weekend. They were as excited as the kids (although it must be said I saw none of the parents trying to score dope, unlike some of the older children) to be in Germany- for most it was their first time in Europe and gushing about the friendliness of all the musicians and how wonderful the audience was and... and.... It was great to see these suburban ³soccer moms² take in the whole event.
Next up was a repeat performance by Sex Without
Nails Bros, this time performing without a play and sounding so much the
better for it, and with Napoleon Murphy Brock (who had also sung and
played with the Paul Green Schoolkids). The highlight for me was sitting
in the shade out front with Jaan and Jenny and her Chinese meal
listening to Uncle Remus.
It was a glorious summer festival early evening, with sunlight streaming on the stage. After a brief and very public soundcheck, Jim Cohen introduced the band and they went into ³My Dilemma². The setlist has been worked upon over the weekend, Jaan and Schroeder wanted the comfort of a set list to diverge from (no-one was really expecting the setlist to be precisely adhered to, but they wanted to have an idea where the Zappa songs were coming up). My Dilemma was chosen as the opener as it was a song the band were confident about, rather than opening with ³You Probably Wondering Why I¹m Here² which appealed to everybody¹s sense of humour. My Dilemma, of course, includes a bass solo, which Mike improvised a keyboard part around- no playing safe just because it was a large audience.
Mike did a short off the cuff speech on Frank in his life and on the weekend, and then it was into the first FZ song of the night with ³You Probably Wondering Why I¹m Here², played at aggressive speed. Following that, the song pretty much played at every European show this year- ³We¹ll Be Right Back² with Mike taking a guitar solo on the catwalk on the stage to the crowd¹s delight. Backwards Deb was introduced as a ³rock song² and this time Jaan and Mike went on the catwalk in true big rock show fashion- the crowd responded accordingly and you could see what was going to happen next- they got carried away grandstanding to the crowd and Mike had to run back to the microphone to sing the next verse- hey it made me grin from ear to ear....
The band wanted to avoid the traditional Zappanale issue- that is by the end of the weekend you¹ve heard 7 different takes on ³Stick It Out², so they wanted to do songs which could be played well by a 3 piece and were rarely performed. So ³Cucamonga² came up next to the crowd¹s surprise and delight and Ike wandered on stage (as he is wont to do at Zappanale- no invitation necessary it seems) to add backing vocals. Ike stayed on stage playing pretty inaudible keyboards to ³Day of the Cow².
After ³Day of the Cow², things turned weird- Ike
decided to stay on stage and continue to play keyboards. Now Ike has
many strengths as a musician, he¹s an amazing vocalist, he¹¹s
developed as a guitarist since the Zappa band days, but he can¹t
improvise sensitively on keyboards to save his life, especially on a
delicate song like ³5 Legs² which he clearly didn¹t know, and the
song just died, which saddened me no end.
Ike left the stage after Mike decided to deviate from the set and play at the keyboards for 2 unrehearsed songs- ³Joe²- an audience request; and ³I Was Not Ready for You² which mutated into a prog jam with hysterical mock prog narration.
And then things got frustrating strange again. The
stage manager announced to Mike¹s surprise that he had five minutes
left. Mike consulted with Jim Cohen who advised him, that the only way
to have the grand finale jam session was to wrap the concert up with the
next song. The previous nights concerts had gone on past 1 am, but there
was a strict curfew of 10pm for Sunday night and the concert organisers
had failled to ensure that the previous bands sets had been
kept to schedule or trimmed to accommodate the headliners. Mike had
written out a set for 1 and half hours (which was nearer 2 hours long in
truth) and no he had to make an immediate decision which song was to
bring the set to an abrupt end. Mike choose Skull Bubbles and invited
Gabe, a young (and some might say ³cute²) American up on stage to ³fuck
some shit up².
Mike was keen for the jam session to take place, asking for Paul Green, Eugene Chadbourne and others to come up on stage. While people were setting up, Mike went into ³Taster² which ended the set proper.
I had real mixed feelings: after the 4 FZ songs, the set list looked like this originally:
Father¹s Day (chosen because lyrically it was
about acceptance following some judgemental FZ songs)
The end jam session - based around ³Black Napkins² and a blues song was as chaotic as event as you would expect - the stage filled up with musicians and Mike acted as MC for the soloists. Jaan got replaced as bassist by one of the older Paul Green school females who more than held her own and much dancing took place.
After the finale, we met up surrounded by people
such as the Muffin Men raving about the performance and with the
exception of Mike (who always concentrates on making the best of
whatever happens on stage and whether you communicate with the audience
or not), people felt a little deflated, I felt a bit disconnected from
it all- the performance¹s
Then we had a few drinks and unwound- people had been admiring Jaan¹s bass and he allowed people to have a go at playing it. Sami (the luthier, guitarist and composer)¹s contact details were spread around.
Then we had a few more drinks.....
We had fun backstage and eventually made our way back to Wolfhard¹s where Jaan and I greeted the dawn with some mad photos and went to sleep in the sun¹s rays, it felt so good to be alive.....
I surfaced for breakfast at midday joining Ike Willis around the breakfast table. Ike was supposed to be on a plane bound for Prague, but according to Ike the lift failled to arrive. Luckily the gig in Prague was scheduled for the next day and a delighted fan gave him a lift to Berlin. Once he left, a number of people remarked how difficult it could be to wake Ike and how reliable the people that were supposed to pick him up at 6am were.
Schroeder and Carsten arrived partly to say good-bye before the long journey back to Freiburg and also to collect the gig money. Others began to wake up for a lazy sunny day in the back garden. Loose plans to wander down to the beach were gently abandoned in favour of gentle conversation and laughter in the sun. Mike surprised us all by having a short go on the trampoline, to much merriment from all present. Napoleon Murphy Brock told us stories
Schroeder and Carsten left at around 4, keeping the
goodbyes as short as possible. Napoleon departed giving us all a hug and
then it was time for dinner. Jaan, Jenny and I went into Bad Doberan for
an Italian meal with Zappo, a character in the world of German Zappa
fans and dealers. He showed his photos of Mike and Napoleon¹s concert
in Sweden, talked about
We wandered over to Kamp Theatre, met the singer
for Dr Dark in search of the rest of his band and then went back to the
house for a barbecue.
It was an early night for me as I was travelling back home early in the morning, so I was packing at 2.30 am. One bonus of the trip home was that Jenny was off to Dublin visiting a friend via Stansted Airport, so I had company for most of the way.
Waking Jaan with the magic word Jenny taught me (and which must remain a secret for now), Jenny and I quickly said goodbye to Jaan. The thought of waking Jaan up by rubbing sun-block on his face occurred to me, but there are better ways to wake up and I decided against it...
After a quick breakfast, Jenny and I were given a lift to the train station, by our friends the Zappanale organisers. We arrived in good time, then realised we were standing on the wrong platform two minutes before the train was due to depart, so rucksacks on our backs we raced for the train.
The train journey involving 2 changes was commendably efficient with one exception. As we found out it was possible to make a two hour journey for a mere 3.50 euros, which might explain why the German state is bankrupt. The journey was a mixture of sleep, gossip, song quotes and making silly jokes about the martial music played before each station announcement. We certainly got some stares from some of the Germans on board.
We arrived at Lubeck, had a drink and soup at Turkish bar, whose staff were convinced I was totally henpecked by Jenny- hey I¹m not proud- and then we took the bus to the Airport. Lubeck Airport is small and totally devoid of effective air-conditioning. This called for more drinks.......
Finally we got on board and I noticed the amorous couple from my flight out were two rows in front of us. They both seemed rather tired and the woman rested her head on his lap- well in fact all you could see was this mass of long blonde hair over his crotch....
Jenny spotted some Barbie items for sale in the Ryanair catalogue which she just had to have, so we burst into the chorus of ³Barbie Girl² to celebrate. The man in the row in front of us turned around and asked ³Octafish?². Turns out he had been at Zappanale and the older couple next to him were from Bad Doberan. Small world after all.
We arrived in Stansted to rainclouds and Jenny and I parted after Customs- long goodbyes add nothing to the experience.
The train journeys back home to Cardiff passed without real incident- it was of course raining when I got home, which told me the weekend away was the right thing to do.

well, for starters: there is no official zappa video dvd released as
a couple of newsletters ago, i told you about the "baby snakes" dvd-bootleg set (obviously taken from the vhs-tapes), and now the same bootlegger brings you:
last month , i learned that the "does humor" video was also bootlegged in eastern yurrip somewhere. i haven't seen the actual dvd, but i'm pretty convinced that this is just the beginning. recordable dvds (with all the official zappa releases, tv shows and much more) are offered for sale everywhere. i don't doubt that these will be transferred to factury pressed video dvds soon.
now, if anyone could only tell the zappa family trust one thing about this matter, it should be "please release the zappa videos on video dvd before they are all counterfeited. zappa fans really want these videos and they would prefer to buy them from you."
