Project Update #61: WHO THE F*@% IS FRANK ZAPPA? by Alex Winter

Kickstarter

L.A. IN THE SUMMER OF 2017!

Posted by Alex Winter (Creator)

A shout-out from the depths of the vault and more goodies from therein!

Buenos dias, freaks! As I’ve said, we’re winding up the preservation work through the summer, so not a lot to report. Currently we’re waiting for the last batches to be complete, then we’ll go through it all and start to close this up!

IN THE RECTORY BASEMENT!

I wanted to give the floor to one of the hardest-working members of our team, J Warner. J has been on this cockeyed caravan from the beginning, dug into the bowels of the bunker alongside Vaultmeister Joe, helping to oversee the painstaking preservation and cataloging of all the media. He’s not just an amazing talent, but a lifelong Zappa devotee, and an all-around awesome fella. But I’ll let him speak for himself:

DO-DO-DUN TO-TO…. DORO!

Today’s vault batch comes from the cameras of the famous Austrain production duo known as DoRo; named after the founders Rudi Dolezal and Hannes Rossacher. More on them here. I included a few gems we discovered amongst the filmed footage in the vault. This stuff is really special, and gives an amazing, fly-on-the-wall sense of the band and tours around this time.

Concert Prep. Filmed at Tower Theater, Upper Darby, PA in 1980, at the sound check.

I gotta think about this. Filmed in the dressing room for the same show and date above.

Set List. Filmed as above. Featuring L.Shankar, Arthur Barrow, Tommy Mars and Ike Willis.

Coffee shop. Shot in a coffee shop during the above tour. This one came to us without sound. We may find the sound separately down the road, but we very well may not. This is old stuff folks!

Hope you enjoyed the clips! Once the final batches are in we’ll go through those and send out more archival updates as we get ‘em! And when we have this wrapped up and catalogued we’ll set about getting the doc done. Very exciting!

Anon,

DELIGHTFUL LITTLE MORSELS

Archival StatRep, Doc progress and some gold from the vault!

Guten Tag, freaks! We’re closing in on the end of the preservation/archival phase of this project and easing our way into the documentary phase. Very exciting! And as we wind it down, we continue to find unknown nuggets of gold in the vault!

WE'RE COMING TO THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA!

This past week we moved the archival system from the vault to my Trouper production offices, as we transition from preserving the material to logging it all for hand off to the editors and starting the documentary!

So what are we doing? At this stage we’re mostly finishing up with the remaining video, 3/4" U-Matic videotapes and Betamax formats, which includes baking the older material and then archiving through our system. And when we’re done with this batch, WE ARE DONE!

LET'S SAY YOU WERE A TRAVELING ROCK AND ROLL BAND!

Wanted to share some recent gems we uncovered from the video preservation work. These are clips from FZ on the road in Europe in 1982. Starting in France and ending with some glorious live footage in Germany. All from the great Thomas Nordegg’s VHS archives.

FZ Flag Photo and FZ Industrial Photo

Shot on 5/16/1982 in Paris, France. FZ poses for photographs with an American flag and rummages around an industrial area looking for places to shoot.

Prank Beer, Pre Show Pranks & Tour Toilet

Off we go to Fréjus, France, 5/29/1982. As we find Nordegg wandering around the venue during soundcheck, with John Smothers making practical jokes and FZ directing Thomas to the toilet. Good times.

Bobby Brown Performance

Last but not least, we travel to Schüttorf , Germany on 6/5/1982 for highlights of a performance of "Bobby Brown", one of my favorite FZ tunes.

That’s all she wrote! We’ll keep you updated as we make our way through this phase and onto the next, and continue to share materials as we find ‘em!
