I saw it Scrutz, luckly my mate phoned me and woke me up to tell me about it. Pretty cool to see Gail and the boys on national breakfast TV. They didn't have much of a slot, they basically just told the dipshit hosts what they had planned. They wouldn't give any information as to which musicians would be playing with them. But they did say that Zappa fans would be really happy with the line-up's. I'm going to the Glasgow gig, anyone else going to this one?

Thanks for typing up the article!!!! It kicked!   <br>I hope they let people tape.   If it really is a top of the line Zappa band, letting fans tape and trade these shows will ensure the legions of skeptical American fans will wind up at shows.<br><br><br>About the mini taping unit, I have taping friends who have these hats they bought with recording gear and mic's built into the hats!   Sort of like that Simpsons episode, except actually it is real stealthy.
