The next Zappa-themed CD to be curated by the Idiot Bastard for release on Cordelia Records is a collection of tunes with place names in their titles, performed as follows:


BEEN TO KANSAS CITY IN A MINOR by Fred Händl feat. Mark Watson

D.C. BOOGIE by Guranfoe

TINSEL TOWN REBELLION by Tante Tofu

TRANSYLVANIA BOOGIE by The Todd Grubbs Group

VILLAGE OF THE SUN by Acton Zappa

WHAT'S NEW IN BALTIMORE? by Zappa Early Renaissance Orchestra feat. Ike Willis

WOLF HARBOR by Evil Dick
“This version of Wolf Harbor treads the hilarious line between computer music and free improvisation.
Imagine the stinking, grey polluted water. Seabirds – drenched in crude oil and tangled in plastic – feasting on the rotting remains of fish poisoned by radiation. Sewage outlets spewing out a noxious cocktail full of used baby wipes, condoms and sanitary equipment. And jazz.”


The last release in this series – The Idiot Bastard Sons Of Mr. Green Genes – is available now from The Cordelia Record Shop.

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 2019. This tome is very much a labour of love ("by fans, for fans") which this CD will happily herald.

Mick's cartographer chum Klaus Kühner is providing all of the necessary graphics for the book, and will also be supplying appropriate artwork for the CD.

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.
