 Post subject: Brussels 1982 and more
PostPosted: Fri Apr 11, 2003 7:08 am 
Folks,<br><br>You may have seen my FZ pix pages before, but the pictures of the 1982 show in Brussels are now new and improved. I tracked down the photographer who had the originals (slides) transferred to CD, so we could forego any scanning. The pix are totally awesome, like tubular. Barf out! So check it out!<br><br>Mathieu<br><br>http://www.mathieumusic.net/ <br>   <br>http://www.cla.sc.edu/socy/faculty/deflem/Shows/Zappa.html<br>  <br><br>

The video-taping was done by a guy from Zappa, just one camera, which typically focused in on FZ's guitar. This was the first show of the tour and not the best according to the band themselves, so I don't think the recording got out. Also, the show was interrupted at one point because a guy threw a lighter onstage, a curious precedent for the rest of the tour.<br><br>Oink!<br>

The Brussels show was the seventh gig. If my gig list is to be trusted, before that they played in: <br>Aarhus, Denmark<br>Stockholm, Sweden<br>Drammen, Norway<br>Gothenburg, Sweden<br>Copenhagen, Denmark<br>Berlin, Germany<br><br>(among all these gigs, I only have 3 tracks of the Drammen concert--not bad)<br><br>I'd like to get the video tape of the Brussels gig!<br><br>

During the europe 1982 tour, Thomas Nordegg was often around with a handycam. I guess there's a bunch of these recordings.<br>The bits we can enjoy are on Video from Hell (Saint Etienne).<br>Stevie's Spanking (from rome '82) looks like it was a more professional shot, anybody have clues about who did it?  Probably the whole show was filmed that way, and maybe others... <br>it's curious that nobody ever talks about the '82 video footage that's supposed to lay in the vaults...<br>

[quote author=Sebastiaan link=board=concerts;num=1050080886;start=0#7 date=11/19/03 at 04:46:46]<br><br>Looks professional indeed. Must be more footage I would say but it's hard to find any detailed info on videos on the internet. Maybe Jaypfunk or mr. oOOo has more info?<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>This is correct. Thomas Nordegg did a ton of these shows on his video camera in 1982 plus all the backstage fun like the riot. There's so much 1982 video footage in the vaults. It's a shame it will most likely never see the light of day.  :(<br><br>Stevie's Spanking on Video From Hell is so amazing!!<br><br>
