Dweezil Zappa is headliner of Zappanale #28. On the occasion of his only German guest appearance this year, eclipsed spoke with the 47-year-old US-American about his father's legacy, the meaning of "Freak Out!" and the dispute in the Zappa Family Trust.
eclipsed: This year you are headliner of the Zappanale, a festival dedicated to the musical legacy of your father since its foundation in 1990. How are your feelings before the show in Bad Doberan?
Dweezil Zappa: Since the beginning of my touring project, I have endeavoured to share a wide selection of my father's music with the public, emphasising his work as a composer and guitarist. That's why I'm particularly looking forward to the Zappanale. I know that the audience in Bad Doberan is very familiar with the amazing qualities of this music. I am sure that there will be an intense connection between me and the audience of this year's Zappanale.
SPIDERGAWD - No Man's Land (3:52)
Album: III (2016)
Label/Distribution: Crispin Glover/Stickman/Soulfood
Spidergawd were more than just a motor psycho side project from the beginning, even though half of the quartet consists of Norwegian Trondheim motor psycho members (Bent Saether on bass and Kenneth Kapstad on drums). Spidergawd are a vehicle in their own right, as in the furious "No Man's Land".
