The next Zappa-themed CD to be curated by the Idiot Bastard for release on Cordelia Records will be a collection of tunes with place names in their titles.
This is the likely track list:
BEEN TO KANSAS CITY IN A MINOR by Fred Händl
CAROLINA HARD CORE ECSTASY by Gary Cox
CUCAMONGA by Spannertate
DEAD GIRLS OF LONDON by Gabba Zappa Hey!
D.C. BOOGIE by Guranfoe
HOLIDAY IN BERLIN by Acton Zappa
LET'S MOVE TO CLEVELAND by Bogus Pomp
OUTRAGE AT VALDEZ/MEMORIES OF EL MONTE by Fuchsprellen
PHYNIOX by String Trash
SAN BER'DINO by Caballero Reynaldo
THE PURPLE LAGOON by Hans Annellsson
TRANSYLVANIA BOOGIE by The Todd Grubbs Group
WHAT'S NEW IN BALTIMORE? by Zappa Early Renaissance Orchestra
WOLF HARBOR by Evil Dick
My dear friend Amaretto Mick Zeuner is currently working on The Zappa Tour Atlas, to which the IBS is also contributing. The plan is to have this available in time for Zappanale in 2018. This tome is very much a labour of love ("by fans, for fans") which this CD will happily coincide with.
Mick's cartographer pal Klaus Kühner is providing all of the necessary graphics for the book, and will be supplying some appropriate artwork for the CD too.
For those who care, the Idiot Bastard and all the artists involved do not make one penny from these albums. But Cordelia Records think that, after manufacturing costs and mechanical royalties, they might be able to break even. Within twenty or so years.
