BONDAGE FRUIT - IV

There's nothing wrong with some Bondage Fruit.
Album number 4, aptly called "IV".
Bizarre artwork and great music.

Intense.
Incorporating blues and world music elements.
Love it.
Data have been added to the United Mutations Archives.



BONDAGE FRUIT - SELECTED



The Japanese Pangea record label released this Bondage Fruit compilation album in 1999, the same year that the Maboroshi No Sekai label released the fourth album by Bondage Fruit.
Five tracks, taken from the first three albums.

No new material, but pretty exciting music.
Data has been added to the United Mutations Archives.


ABSOLUTELY FREE, NOT

The 2LP reissue of Absolutely Free has some bonus stuff, a copy of the original booklet, and a laser etching on side four.
Unfortunately, lots of (all ?) copies, like mine, have a white label on side four, ruining the etching.
Futhermore, the booklet has the pages in the wrong order.
Talking about a mess...



THE HALLOWEEN 77 BOX UPDATE

Track 15 on Show #2 from Frank Zappa's The Haloween 77 Box has an error.
There's two or three seconds somewhere in the track that are repeated, making the track two or three seconds longe than it should be.

Those of us / of you who bought the box directly through Zappa dot com will receive a message with a link to a download of the correct track.

MAGNUS - THE BODY GAVE YOU EVERYTHING

Belgian duo Magnus consists of CJ Bolland and Tom Barman.
(Tom Barman = dEUS, = Barman / Van Nueten, = TaxiWars)
Magnus is some sort of dance music project.
This first album, however, might be classified as some sort of rock album with dance beats.

It has been entered into the United Mutations Archives because it features Peter Vermeersch, Mauro Pawlowski and Tim Vanhamel.

SOUNDTRACK - HEARING IS BELIEVING



The soundtrack of the documentary about Rachel Flowers has been made available on CD.

Rachel became known through a number of YouTube movies where she performed some great music, including a couple of Frank Zappa tunes.
Shortly thereafter, she got invited on stage during a Zappa Plays Zappa concert.
The recording of Rachel with the Dweezil 'ZpZ' Zappa band perfoming 'Montana' is the closing track on this soundtrack.
Nice.
