Former Frank Zappa band members record new album

Lifelong Frank Zappa fan Wolfram Klug had a mission: to gather together legendary Frank Zappa band members Ike Willis, Ed Mann, Arthur Barrow and Tommy Mars for the first time in twenty years, harness their incredible talents and record a CD like no other.

Wolfram travelled from Switzerland to Southern California to record in LA with Ike Willis (vocals and guitar), Arthur Barrow (bass), Tommy Mars (vocals and keyboard) and Ed Mann (percussion and mallets). All of them are hugely talented musicians who featured heavily on Zappa’s greatest albums and live shows. This brand spanking new work is a colourful mix of vocal and instrumental tracks that fuse jazz, funk, electro, and spoken word. In other words, it’s packed with fun.

There’s only one catch: Wolfram needs to secure some outside funding to complete this great project. By supporting his campaign on you can help to put the finishing touches on this release.
