*Trank Zappa Grappa In Varese http://www.lanvert.be/*

 Ceci n'est pas un cover band de Zappa_ mais un projet réunissant des musiciens belges (dont deux cinquièmes du quintet The Wrong Object) autour du saxophoniste suisse Markus Stauss (www.fazzulmusic.ch/), figure aussi incontournable qu'iconoclaste du rock progressif et fondateur du label bâlois Fazzul. Des compositions déjantées, des riffs endiablés, des influences mêlant le jazz, le punk et la musique médiévale, et une question à laquelle il s'agit d'éviter d'apporter une réponse définitive ...
