Claudio was kind enough to answer my questions:

UM: Who are you & where are you from?

Claudio: We are a surf-punk instro band from Brazil.

UM: What kind of music do you normally play? Are you a Surf kind of person or band? Is it your way of life? Do you really want to live in California?

Claudio: We don't want to live in California. We play instro rock. Some people call it surf, some others don't. We don't care. We like our music.

UM: Do you have records out?

Claudio: We have one CDR out, called "Estrume'n'tal encontra o ET de Varginha", and one CD released by Golly Gee Records ( called "Surfme'n'tal". And there’s more on the way.

UM: How did you find out about Alan's Zappa Surf Project?

Claudio: I heard about it from the discussion list that I take part in.

UM: Were you already playing a Zappa Surf Classic before you heard of Alan's project, or did you start working on it after you found out about the project? Have you played other Zappa compositions?

Claudio: The project came first. ‘Letter From Jeepers’ is the first Zappa composition that we play.

UM: How did you choose the Zappa composition? Is it your favourite Zappa composition or just the one that needs a Surf Treatment?

Claudio: We chose 'Letter from Jeepers', which is really (a kind of) unknown tune and it's cool as hell, and we think it will become a great instro tune despite the lack of vocals and hence story.
