Good Idea, Herb. ..with anything of a how small whatsoever variation of eg mounting the stage and hope me hair is okay.

Whereupon Mr. So and Mr. Such wrote, "Bugger-all, I missed it." - What could one say? am now trying for ten month to get super-real ideas over to so-called experts... Hallol: High noon (ooper-lala, 13DST) on the Westcoast, either you've gone through a very brilliant Friday or you just simply haven't read one of the very few caring posters' djinnsayn sharings. Would you rather hear what just one of the seven billion dwarves are doing every day a sillion times? what said Phil Collins, "I don't care anymore." Houston? rotcha that.

....14EST incidentally, the preceding band played havoc for half an hour and only heard of Genesis' magic performances. The costumes made you cringe, the music was a cacophony of dins at large. Donno, what is your amble opinion? tell it to the neighbours then.

Greggary Peccary was utterly brilliant, I have some small misgivings, like nonchalantly was pronounced 'nonchalantly' when it should have been "Non-Chalantly" as FZ really understood the subtlety of 'Eyebrows'. The Steno Pool was taped and a film of 3 typewriters was on the back screen, it worked really well as a spectacle. The Radios each tuned to a different station sounded weak from where I sat. The slight and somewhat diminutive singer with a fine fine voice did the part of Greggary Peccary beautifully, in fact he looked so much like GP as GP should, a few more tufts growing out of his head wouldn't go amiss. They did the last piece again as an encore and this time the Narrator Mr Mitch Benn modernised the piece by saying "Quentin Robert DeNameland now accepts Mastercard, Visa, and Paypal @Quentinrobertdenameland.com". I really enjoyed that. the Conductor told me that it was Mr Benn's idea.

Which I think was a nifty touch. I asked Mrs Zappa if GP will be shown in its entirety, as I had previously the day before asked the TV company man who interviewed me on Saturday me how SkyArts would be broadcasting GP (I told him to make sure back up camera's were in place for GP - as this was the highlight of the event) he said that they would only show an extract. I made the case to him for all of GP. Gail told me that she does not know.

When The EM did GP in 2000 they had prerecorded tape/sampling in this section, too. The sampling/tape-preparartion had been done by EM-member Hermann Kretschmar then, if I remember correctly. And they had typewriters live on stage.

In the heat of how well the ZFT thought the 3 days were going it was announced that they want to do this again. Since Zappa at the Roundhouse was the idea of it's music director Dave Gaydon then this is a major hurdle out of the way. It is a good idea as Chalk Farm, with Chalk Farm Tube station nearby is easy to get to, and Car Parking is possible compared to impossible in other parts of London. Also Chalk Farm it is outside the Congestion Zone.

They are already downloadable at your nearest internet café. I will though take the next orientexpress to Babylondon and make that disc skimming over a terrific English cuppa camomille. Ya, phought it much more clever than 4ooKm herbals and stumble-lingerooneys. Also got it from tourist birds that the weather is brrrilliant.

This was how Jeff Simmons was talking whilst he was partying all weekend at Chalk Farm!

He said that he got it from Aynsley Dunbar and Ringo.

I heard a fantastic audio clip with Ringo hanging on Flo & Eddie's radio show the other day. That man *definitely* had a way with words! He cracked me!
However, this *cryptic* speak quoted above drives me bat-shit. :P

That's what's in the water in Liverpool. Both drummers 'who have had their encounter with FZ' are from the Beatles homeland

Just to forestall further misinterpretation and -apprehensions, this concert or any other event of splendor isn't available on no dowedo or whatever. This is science fiction. I had millions of letters in the last few days. If you wanted to see fine arts, go to internet. I only mentioned that cd phenomenon for no reason, believe in such a doobry just enough in order to hear UFO and to imagine what would be needed to make it go fly and find another Shangri-La. Is this clear now? so where're these advanced cassette widget thingies what apparently proved too heavy stuff for all those dwarves.

By now this technology would make bats and cats coming to our window and asking for a dance competition, just for the lol. Don't get me wrong, digital controlling is absolute great, ever tried picturing how a hard-drive or CD-Rom works? the velocity, of discs and data transfer? the distance between laser and disc? ney, no-one can, atoms have to steep sometimes, then proceed with the idea that it all can be moved around, the very staggering strolling idea. Do you know what it takes to produce a plane disc? to start wiv a silicium plant worth billions just to purify that material up to 99%. The electronics then manage the fine tuning of reading, buffering the data et al. It's all so awright, the sound coming out of them loudspeakers is all natural again. Not so sure anymore of what contemptoraries are thinking, doing etc.

.."..just believing sufficiently to make a CD float-esque.." that's rather trrriffic, innit? Thanks to Terry Pratchett, all others may continue changing Superpossibility into ....issie coffee clear, me brain isn't crashing fast enough. It's been all there and abundant, on the tip of a claw, is this right or is me simply good?

Macca never talked like that.... (but then again, he does have his lyrics-with-no-words songs!) :wink:

Does anyone have a link to an actual USEFUL seating plan for the Roundhouse? Being offered tickets R33/34 but can't find out where they are. How completely STUPID is it not to be able to choose tickets, or at least see where you are going to pay £80 (plus travelling expenses) to sit, which may give a crap view. Poor show Roundhouse.

I be making a weekend of it if possible last time took till 5 in the morning too find my car :mrgreen:

found a useful seating plan
Image
Posh Seats £60
Ringside £40
Stalls £35
Rear Stalls and Circle £25
Standing £15
prices for some show beginning of 2012

the bar looks like it's in the same place i paid around the same price for a stall ticket last time in 2010 when ZPZ was there.

Edit The Posh was not open i swear the stage was underneath it :wink:
