I really like Mastodon and it's cool seeing younger musicians acknowledge Zappa even though those guys are already in their early 40's I think. But they have a lot of younger fans who might be influenced by an interview like this.

PROG is a cool mag btw. It opens the doors to a lot of great music new and old.

I got a Yahoo FZ alert yesterday that sez: Mastodon's front man Brent Hines is a big Zappa Fan and their latest release is a Zappa influenced effort. KU, you gave me one of there T's. Several younger folks, all twenty somethings, have commented about it to me. They all seem to be very knowledgeable about music in general. (the kids are alright!) I went on Youtube for a listen and I like most of their work too. I'd like to hear the new album all the way through, before I hear the songs chopped and shopped on Youtube. Hell, I just might buy a non Zappa release ( :shock: ) if the local record store stocks it. Anyone remember/know the name of it?

In the interview it says the new one will be called"once more around the sun". The album that I liked a lot was "Crack the Skye" same as the shirt I gave you. I haven't really heard much of their other music yet though. They are really heavy sounding but progressive at the same time. They get a little bit into that screaming type of singing at times which isn't everybody's cup of tea but I think they're real good.

Exactly why I said I liked "most" of their music. Good band though and a cool find, thanks man! :wink: 8)

'Crack the Skye' was my album of the noughties. Absolutely amazing on many fronts. Heavy. Progressive. Intelligent. Imaginative. In interviews they come across as articulate.
Devin Townsend is their only rival in terms of new music that inspires me on that many levels.
