Naomi Ackie BAFTA EE Rising Star award nominee announced via 360 MAGAZINE.

EE Rising Star Award

Last night kicked off the annual EE Bafta Film Sessions, beginning with this year’s EE Rising Star Award nominees. Naomi AckieSheila AtimEmma Mackey and Daryl McCormack at Odeon Luxe Leicester Square as part of the lead up to the upcoming EE Bafta Film Awards on Sunday 19 February.

NAOMI ACKIE – WHITNEY HOUSTON: I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY

On what playing Whitney taught her about herself:

“The biggest thing I realised about playing Whitney is I had to scrub away my perception of her, which is really hard because I’ve put people like Whitney on a pedestal for so long so when I got the part it was like how do I live up to that person when actually it was like what any person in general is asking—to be seen, not how the media or fame or all of that makes you out to be.”

The public-voted EE Rising Star Award honours young acting talent who have demonstrated exceptional talent and ambition and begun to capture the imagination of the British public.

The EE BAFTA Film Sessions 2023 will take place until Thursday, 9 February.

EE BAFTA Film Awards will be broadcast on Sunday 19 February at 7:00 pm on BBC One and iPlayer.

A GREENER GERMANY

Germany is one of the virtually environmentally friendly nations in the world. Its capacity to maintain carbon neutrality and reduce its footprint in a global economy is unmatched. Hamburg, a port city, is one of the key hubs in the country, but its green thumb rivals are virtually smart cities.

Bridge&Tunnel is a durable fashion house that creates unisex duds from leftovers. Once the materials are depleted, so is the bespoke capsule. Conny Klotz had an opportunity to catch up with our president, Vaughn, as he embarks on a tunnel tour in this sustainable country. Both engage in an introspective conversation about what it takes to be part of a global movement and how it creates possibilities for the less fortunate.

Carol Burnett

Paying tribute to a beloved national icon for her birthday, NBC will celebrate Carol Burnett’s illustrious career with “Carol Burnett: 90 Years of Laughter + Love.” The two-hour special will air Wednesday, April 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT will also stream the next day on Peacock. The special will be filmed at Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles.

The star-studded event will feature an A-list lineup of musical performances and special guests who will come together to share their love for one of the most cherished comediennes in television history.

The evening will include musical performances from Bernadette Peters, Billy Porter, Jane Lynch, Katy Perry, and Kristin Chenoweth. The musical tributes will pay homage to Carol’s renowned career performances, including: “Old Friends,” dedicated to Carol’s 60-year friendship with Julie Andrews; “Only an Octave Apart,” which Carol sang alongside Beverly Sills in the 1976 television special “Sills and Burnett at the Met”; Carol’s memorable songs from the hit film “Annie”; and a tribute to her classic theme song, “I’m So Glad We Had This Time Together” from “The Carol Burnett Show.”

Special guests attending this once-in-a-lifetime party include Aileen Quinn, Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Bob Mackie, Cher, Ellen DeGeneres, Julie Andrews, Kristen Wiig, Laura Dern, Lily Tomlin, Marisa Tomei, Sofia Vergara, Steve Carell, Susan Lucci, Tracee Ellis Ross, Vicki Lawrence, and many more.

“I’m so excited NBC decided to throw me a birthday party and invited all of my closest friends,” Burnett said. “I can’t wait to look back at so many wonderful moments throughout my career, I feel so lucky to share this night with everyone.”

“It’s hard to imagine anyone in television more beloved than Carol Burnett,” said, Jen Neal, Executive Vice President, Live Events and Specials, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “To throw this wonderful birthday celebration is clearly our honor, and we can’t wait to share the love that we all have for her with all her adoring fans.”

“This special is going to be the best party ever,” said Mark Bracco, executive producer and president of Silent House Productions. “It will be an evening of music, comedy, and dozens of big stars paying tribute to the one and only Carol Burnett.  We look forward to everyone at home celebrating right along with us.”

The special will share some of the funniest and most memorable moments of Burnett’s legendary career. From her Broadway debut in “Once Upon a Mattress,” her early appearances on “The Garry Moore Show,” her hit films “The Four Seasons,” “A Wedding,” “Pete ‘n’ Tillie,” her iconic role as Miss Hannigan in “Annie,” to her acclaimed sketch comedy series “The Carol Burnett Show,” which ran for 11 seasons on CBS and played an instrumental role in the evolution of comedy. Burnett’s variety show co-star Vicki Lawrence will be in attendance, along with costume designer Bob Mackie. “The Carol Burnett Show” continues to make people laugh more than 40 years later with its incredibly funny sketches, including, most notably, the hysterical “Gone with the Wind” satire. Many publications have listed “The Carol Burnett Show” as one of the greatest TV series of all time.

“Carol Burnett: 90 Years of Laughter + Love” is executive produced by Carol Burnett, Brian Miller, Steve Sauer, Paul Miller and Baz Halpin, Mark Bracco & Linda Gierahn of Silent House Productions.

Paula Andrea Placido stars on Showtime’s The L Word reported in 360 MAGAZINE.

Paula Andrea Placido, a Dominican actress born in San Francisco, is one of the rare genuine souls that remain in the world. Her innocent, deep-seated eyes are mysterious and mischievous. This is a visual artist who plunges into abstract painting. However, her innate talent is her ability to conjure up members of the audience on the small screen with her infectious girl look and bad vibrations. In season three of The L Word: Generation Q, she joins superstars like Rosie O’Donnell, Margaret Cho, and Jennifer Beals. She gives a fascinating performance as Roxy, a party girl that pleases people. Moreover, she’s been cast in numerous notable shows like Hacks and Shameless.

In short, diabolical yet dynamic, Placido is on the tip of the Hollywood’s tongue as an actor to watch, which earned her a mention on our list.

Women Impact Tech CEO Paula R. Bratcher Ratliff speaks with Vaughn Lowery of 360 MAGAZINE.

Paula R. Bratcher Ratliff is the founder and CEO of Women Impact Tech. This past November, the accelerator produced an inaugural conference in Manhattan. Approximately 1000 women and a handful of prestigious companies as well as disruptive startups were in attendance. Executives from a variety of brands such as Peloton, Amazon, and Google were also present.

As a seasoned international staffing agent, Paula has created a space for gender equity in the arena. According to Ratliff, “Women represent only 8% of the population in the technology area.” She hopes global entities become more transparent and start a conversation. “Women represent only 14% of all engineers, she adds.”

In the aftermath of Roe v. Wade, participants were encouraged to go out and vote. While they did not have a formal conversation about the overturned decision, it reiterates the importance of women’s voices.

PRIVATE COLLECTION OF BBC ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’S MUCH LOVED EXPERT HENRY SANDON (MBE) HEADS TO AUCTION via 360 MAGAZINE.

HENRY SANDON PRIVATE COLLECTION

PRIVATE COLLECTION OF BBC ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’S MUCH LOVED EXPERT HENRY SANDON (MBE) HEADS TO AUCTION

Ceramics and pottery spanning decades to be offered

Ceramics specialist and antiques expert Henry Sandon (MBE)

Chorley’s auctioneers is delighted to announce that it will offer the private collection of BBC Antiques Roadshow’s long-serving expert, Henry Sandon (MBE), known for his passion for porcelain and pottery and in particular, Royal Worcester porcelain. The prized collection of many of his treasured pieces will be offered in a sale titled The Henry Sandon Ceramic Study Collection at Chorley’s on Tuesday, 18th April, 2023

Featured image: An important Royal Worcester plate by famous Worcester artist Harry Stinton (1883-1968)

Estimate £1,000-£1,400

As well as being a world-recognised antiques expert, Henry Sandon (b. 1928) is an author and former lecturer, as well as the father of the renowned TV ceramics expert John Sandon. He began his career with an interest in archaeology, which offered a deep insight into the world of ceramics from all countries, cultures and decades. In 1967 he was appointed curator of the Dyson Perrins Museum at the Royal Worcester Factory, a position he held until 1982, but he is most well-known for his role as an antiques expert on the long-running BBC television show Antiques Roadshow.

Speaking about his passion for ceramics and his extensive collection, Henry says: “I wanted to title my collection ‘Ancient and Modern’ like the hymnbook, for it was choral music that brought me to Worcester. I came to teach at the grammar school and to sing in the wonderful cathedral choir, and once in Worcester, I discovered ceramics everywhere. I dug up Roman and Medieval pots in my garden by the Cathedral and was captivated by their history. Digging up broken pots led me to attend local auctions and antique shops filled with Worcester porcelain.

I also discovered modern pottery. Geoffrey Whiting, one of Britain’s greatest Studio Potters, held classes in Worcester. I was a terrible pupil, but from Geoffrey Whiting I learned to love his pots and those of many other modern potters, who became good friends. In 1967 the Museum of Royal Worcester needed a new curator and my enthusiasm got me the job that changed my life.

A Royal Worcester vase by famed Worcester artist Harry Davis (1885-1970). Estimate £800-£1,200.

I learnt the history of Worcester porcelain from scratch, helped by wonderful mentors, three of whom gave me the same advice: Jim Kiddell from Sotheby’s, the great collector Dr Bernard Watney and my dear friend Geoffrey Godden all told me that the best way to learn about ceramics was to form a study collection. It didn’t matter that I could only afford damaged examples of the early pottery I coveted. I knew it was important to buy as much as I could and to hold it and live with it. These experts would come to the museum to help me sort the finds from my important excavations on the site of the earliest Worcester china factory. At this time, fifty years ago, Worcester still had a flourishing china factory. I spent much of my time taking important visitors around the factory and meeting the great artists who had spent their entire lives working at the porcelain works. People like the modeller Doris Lindner and the painter Daisy Rea had so many wonderful stories to tell. Above all, I cherish every moment I was able to spend with Harry Davis, who I believe was the greatest porcelain painter of all time. 

Attending sales at Bruton Knowles I met and became a special friend of the legendary Arthur Negus.” Arthur Negus (1903-1985) was the first ‘Television Antiques Expert’, having starred in the popular antiques TV show Going for a Song. He took part in the pilot for the Antiques Roadshow in 1977 and was an immediate hit with viewers. This was the beginning of a brand-new genre in television, but no one could have predicted its enduring appeal to this day.

Henry continues: “We got on really well and Arthur showed me that a passion and enthusiasm like ours would rub off on others, through lectures and through the new medium of television. For Birmingham University I began teaching evening classes covering the whole history of ceramics and instead of using slides like most lecturers, I took along actual pieces from my rapidly expanding study collection, pots my students could hold for themselves.

Meanwhile appearances with Arthur Negus on Going for a Song and Arthur Negus Enjoys, led me to join, in 1979, The Antiques Roadshow, which gave me a chance to share my love of ceramics with a massive audience around the world.

A north coast Peruvian stirrup vessel in the form of a seated warrior holding a club, dating from circa 200-600 AD.

Estimate £300-£400.

I had to sell part of my study collection forty years ago when I went to Canada as the Director of The George Gardiner Museum in Toronto, one of the world’s leading centres for the study of ceramics of all kinds. When I returned to Worcester I gave special encouragement to many new manufactories of ceramics, where I found traditional skills were still preserved, but struggling to survive in tough conditions. My name and enthusiasm for real craftsmanship helped British ceramics factories large and small and for my efforts I was rewarded with an MBE from the Queen for services to Charity and to the Ceramics Industry. Now that I am older than most of the ceramics in my collection, I am no longer able to pick up and hold and cherish every one of the hundreds of pieces I have lived with all around me. I need other people to help care for me now and so it’s time to find new owners to care for all my beloved pots. I have known Simon Chorley way back since Arthur Negus’s days and so I asked him to organise this sale. Apart from just a few special favourites for my family to treasure, it is time for all of my pots to join new study collections.”

Titled The Henry Sandon Ceramic Study Collection, the auction will include many examples by Worcester artists that Henry describes above, particularly by his great friend, the late Harry Davis, as well as more modern studio pieces by another friend, Geoffrey Whiting. Pots from 2000BC to the present day will grace Henry Sandon’s sale and people will have the opportunity to buy a piece of history, as well as a memento of one of our ‘National Treasures’.

Among the highlights is an important Royal Worcester plate by Harry Stinton (1883-1968), a member of one of the most famous Worcester families of artists – the Stintons painted at the factory for almost 160 years.

A stoneware vase by the revered studio potter Geoffrey Whiting (1919-1988). Estimate £300–£500.

The plate in the sale is from a service commissioned in 1928, by the founder of another famous family, William Keith Kellogg (1860-1951) of the legendary cereal company, trading as Kellogg’s. Kellogg ordered two sets, both comprising just 25 plates, painted by Royal Worcester’s two best artists. The costly red background on the plates was chosen to match the colour of the famous Kellogg’s logo.

In 1985 Henry Sandon advised on the sale of the service, being offered in sets of twelve plates, and was allowed to choose the one ‘spare’ plate of each design for himself. The current example is the one he chose. It features a rich border with raised gilding and in the centre is a watermill in a snow scene. It is signed by Harry Stinton and carries an estimate of £1,000-£1,400.

Another important piece in the sale is a Royal Worcester vase by the famed Worcester artist Harry Davis (1885-1970). In his last years, Harry became a great friend of Henry Sandon. Harry had started  at the Worcester factory aged just 13 and soon gained a wonderful reputation for his work. In time, Harry became foreman of the ‘Men’s Painters department’ at the factory, as well as teaching apprentices joining Royal Worcester.

In 1928 Harry Davis helped Harry Stinton with the Kellogg’s service and in 1938 he painted a vase for the Australian cricketer Sir Donald Bradman to commemorate his three double centuries on the New Road Ground at Worcester. Henry Sandon was later to enjoy a wonderful correspondence with Don Bradman about cricket and the incredible Harry Davis vase and in 2004 Henry travelled to Australia to see the Bradman Vase for himself. Harry Davis created a very different vase in Henry’s sale featuring a stag in a snow scene in experimental sunset colouring. Painted by Harry Davis in 1921, Henry acquired the vase from the artist himself and it is estimated to fetch £800-£1,200.

A toby jug in the form of Henry Sandon by Staffordshire maker Kevin Francis Ceramics. Estimate £50-£100.

A stoneware vase by the celebrated studio potter Geoffrey Whiting (1919-1988) also features in the sale. Northumberland-born Geoffrey trained as an architect but fell in love with the craft of pottery and set up his own pottery in Worcestershire. Henry Sandon is passionate about Geoffrey Whiting’s pots and lent a number of his pieces to the Whiting Retrospective Exhibition, including this slab-form vase, which has ‘resist’ decoration made using a lost-wax technique. The vase carries an estimate of £300-£500.

An example of one of the older pieces in the collection, is a north coast Peruvian stirrup vessel in the form of a seated warrior holding a club. From the Mochica (Moche) culture, it dates from circa 200-600 AD and is estimated to fetch £300-£400. A fun addition to the sale is a toby jug in the form of Henry Sandon by Staffordshire maker Kevin Francis Ceramics. The jug features experimental colours and was not put into production, making it truly unique. It carries an estimate of £50-£100.

Simon Chorley, commenting on the collection says: “Chorley’s is delighted to have been instructed to sell the collection, as we have had a wonderful, long-standing relationship with both Henry and Arthur.” He tells us: “I first met Henry Sandon at the Three Choirs Festival at Gloucester in 1965. I was a chorister at Gloucester Cathedral, while Henry was a Lay Clerk at Worcester. In the early 1970s I joined the firm Bruton Knowles and was under the wing of Arthur Negus. Henry often attended auctions and occasionally met and chatted with Arthur.

It was marvellous to see both experts really enjoying beautiful objects throughout their many appearances on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. After Arthur’s death in 1985, I was involved with arranging the auction of his treasured collection. Henry very much enjoyed that sale and it is now a privilege for me to be involved in arranging Henry’s sale. In 2002 I was invited as a guest to This is Your Life, where Henry Sandon was the surprised recipient of the ‘Red Book’ and the final surprise guest was Anne, Arthur Negus’ daughter. She enthused about her late father’s great friendship with Henry and is now thrilled that Chorley’s are conducting Henry’s auction, a conclusion to the two friends’ and magnificent broadcasters’ life-long enjoyment of collecting.”

Hottest Fashion Trends

As we wave goodbye to 2022 and welcome in the New Year, one thing on many people’s to-do lists is creating a wardrobe that will not only impress but serve a purpose all year long.

Fashion experts at Boohoo have predicted the top trends of 2023 in the hopes of helping prepare your capsule wardrobes, de-clutter and donate any out-of-fashion pieces and give insight into what’s trending in 2023.

Biker Girl

The biker trend stems from pulling nostalgic leather and grunge-style pieces, incorporating them into everyday wear, and spicing up a party look. The trend is often seen when mixing feminine silhouettes with boxy oversized leather pieces. Celebrity fashion favourites such as Sydney Sweeney and Hailey Bieber are often seen stepping out in biker-style outfits, proving just how popular the biker look is and will be this year.

Searches for ‘leather pants’ are at an average of 129,000 times a month in the U.S., alongside searches for ‘biker jacket’ seeing a 101% increase over the past 90 days and searches for ‘biker boots’ increased by 165% over the past month.

Flashy Metallics

At the end of last year, we saw the re-introduction of all things metallic, with silver taking over the internet and the runway. The style has already become an obsession on social media, especially on TikTok. The hashtag #silveroutfit has surpassed over three million views, and #metallicoutfits also reached an impressive 595,200 views.

Many might believe shiny metallic outfits are just for the sparkle season at Christmas, but that is not the case. It is also not just limited to gold and silver pieces as the industry is seeing more and more colours venturing into popularity. Violets, baby blues and shimmery greens have all popped onto the radar recently, which means the high-shine style is set to be big in 2023.

Cowboy Core

Cowboy core was extremely popular throughout all the seasons last year, and it is here to stay. Western-style pieces are a great way to inject some fun and sass into your 2023 wardrobe; whether it be a pair of statement cowboy boots, a studded suede vest or an oversized plaid shirt, this trend is set to stick.

Something particular that caught fans’ eyes is Margot Robbie. Whilst filming for her upcoming movie Barbie, the actress, paired a neon pink western-style two-piece with a white cowboy hat and matching bandana. Another celebrity that hugely influenced Cowboy Core is Harry Styles after appearing at multiple of his concerts wearing cowboy hats. Fans swooned over him at his concerts while wearing cowboy hats and feather boas, which increased searches for ‘cowgirl hat’ in the US to increase 117%.

Cargo Couture

Practicality in fashion is essential for some when it comes to styling outfits which is why the cargo trend is back and better than ever. Cargo pants give the perfect baggy silhouette whilst also providing comfort, and many styles come equipped with deep pockets, which is ideal for those who like to travel light.

Searches in the U.S searches for ‘cargo pants’ are at an average 306,000 times per month in America. Cargo skirts have also started to pop up on the scene, and searches for ‘cargo skirt’ over the past month have increased by 123%, proving the trend’s popularity.

Barbie Core

This girly aesthetic based on Mattel Barbie dolls is definitely one for those that love a preppy, bold and bright outfit. This trend is mainly focused on bubblegum pink and fuchsia pieces inspired by all things girly, which was a huge trend in the early 2000s.

With Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie set to hit our screens later this year, we can expect to see hot-pink styles all over social media this year.

Playful Professional

FW23 collection, Hiroaki, Kidill's artistic director, connects to the pure and untouchable feelings via 360 MAGAZINE.

DC SHOES × KIDILL

Through this FW23 collection, Hiroaki, Kidill‘s artistic director, connects to the pure and untouchable feelings that emanate from an individual. This feeling of reconnecting with one’s “self” and the search for freedom were fundamental elements in the development of this collection. Thus, this deep and personal search led Hiroaki to remember his attachment to the Spike Jonze, Harmony Korine, Danny Boyle’s movies or Z-boys’s documentary, capturing the lives of teenagers, moving between a certain carefree freedom, but also the feeling of danger of losing it.

In order to support this strong idea around skaters, Kidill makes this season a collaboration with DC shoes and DC skaters, allowing Hiroaki to develop and express his emotions while taking up the DIY codes of skaters, as a tribute and a certain nostalgia of this “90’s skaters” vibe. This collection is a tribute to the evolution of “Enfants Terribles” transitioning into adults in the making.

Frank Zappa – MUDD CLUB

Presenting two previously unreleased concerts from Frank Zappa’s short-lived 1980’s band, the latest exciting live collection to be released from The VaultZappa 80: Mudd Club/Munich, offers fans an opportunity to hear two blistering shows recorded in two distinct settings: the intimate 240 capacity Mudd Club in New York City and the massive 12,000 seat German arena, Olympiahalle in Munich. Produced by Ahmet Zappa and Zappa Vaultmeister Joe Travers, this historically significant release, releasing March 3 via Zappa Records/UMe, marks the first time that full concerts have ever been released featuring the 1980 lineup of Zappa leading the five-strong band which included the dual vocal attack of Ike Willis and Ray WhiteArthur Barrow on bass, Tommy Mars on keyboards, and newcomer David Logeman on drums. Additionally, this is the first posthumous release of this distinct, brief lineup, as Logeman, who replaced drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, would end up leaving when Colaiuta returned to the band. Previously only two tracks from these shows – “Love Of My Life” from Mudd Club and “You Didn’t Try To Call Me” from Munich – were ever released by Zappa on his CD live series, You Can’t Do That On Stage Anymore.

Pre-order Zappa ’80: Mudd Club/Munich

The Mudd Club show was recorded on May 8, 1980 by Klaus Weidemann on a 2-track Nagra tape recorder while the Munich show at Olympiahalle was recorded and mixed by engineer Mick Glossop direct to digital 2-track stereo and has the distinction of being the first digital live recording of Zappa ever. The Maestro was early to embrace the emerging technology and would importantly shift to it as a result of this recording. Made on a Sony PCM 1600 recording system, the show was recorded on 3/4” U-Matic videotape, which at the time was state of the art but is now a relic of the rapid evolution of sound recording. The show was transferred from the original digital masters and audio drop-outs, a common issue with this format, were fixed by Travers using multiple tape backups, some analog, some digital, that Zappa worked on, signaling he was considering a potential release at some point. Both shows were mastered by Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.

Zappa ’80: Mudd Club/Munich, which is being previewed today with a scintillating performance of Joe’s Garage standout, “Outside Now,” from the Mudd Club show, will be available digitally and as a 3CD set with the 15-track Mudd Club performance in its entirety on disc 1 and the 22-track full Munich concert spread across discs 2 and 3. The package features cover photography and a host of rare and unseen photos of Zappa and the band members in the accompanying 17-page booklet shot on tour by superfan George Alper. Alper, the son of seminal ‘60s photographer Joe Alper, who befriended Zappa and became part of his inner circle in NYC and eventually sold merch on tour, provides some of his personal memories in the extensive liner notes that also includes an introduction from Joe Travers, a detailed track-by-track of the setlists by band member, Arthur Barrow, who also offers up a reminiscence about the tour and 1980 lineup, and is rounded out with an illuminating essay by Steve Vai who attended the Mudd Club show as a 19-year-old fan who was hired by Zappa to transcribe recently recorded guitar solos and drum tracks. A few months later Vai was invited to join the band and as the virtuoso guitarist/songwriter pens in the liners, “From that point on, the whirlwind world of Frank Zappa that I embarked on for the next 3 years was intense, funny, terrifying at times, but deeply and soulfully rewarding.”

In addition to the 3CD set, the Mudd Club and Munich shows will also be available separately on 180-gram vinyl, with the Mudd Club pressed on 2LP at 45 rpm and Munich on 3LP 33 1/3 rpm vinyl. uDiscover Music and Zappa.com are also exclusively offering a limited edition 180-gram color pressing of each title with Mudd Club on Coke Bottle Green and Munich on Transparent Orange vinyl, which both come with iron-on transfers. Like the CD and digital, the vinyl releases have also been mastered by Bernie Grundman. Vinyl has been pressed at Optimal Media in Germany.

In 1980, The Mudd Club was a happening, underground venue in lower Manhattan best known for being a popular hangout for the counterculture and a bastion of new wave and punk which dominated NYC’s music and fashion scene. As Travers writes in the liners, “celebrities and musicians alike would frequent the ‘art bar cabaret’ during its heyday between 1979 and 1983, dancing, drinking and making the scene amongst the New York City denizens of the deep.” Zappa loved the small, seedy club and the punks, posers and hipsters that called it home, and so made it a priority to play there while on tour, scheduling a performance on May 8th, 1980, at the tiny 240-capacity room, sandwiched between much larger arena dates in Cincinnati, Philadelphia and the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Long Island where he played two shows in one night to more than 20,000 fans total.

Zappa and his five-piece band treated the sweaty, packed club to a thrilling 15-song, hour-long set filled with tracks from the recently released 1979 albums, the triple LP rock opera, Joe’s Garage (“Joe’s Garage,” “Keep It Greasy,” “Outside Now,” “Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?”), and Sheik Yerbuti (“Bobby Brown Goes Down,” “City Of Tiny Lites”), along with songs from across his prolific catalog, including “I Ain’t Got No Heart” and “You Didn’t Try To Call Me” from 1966’s Freak Out!, and the title track from 1970’s “Chunga’s Revenge.” Additionally, the band played early versions of Zappa’s homage to the club, “Mudd Club,” “The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing,” and “You Are What You Is,” which would all be recorded after the tour and released the following year on You Are What You Is. The show was famously captured by an Austrian film crew DoRo (Rudi Dolezal and Hannes Rossacher) who included two songs – “Mudd Club” and “Chunga’s Revenge” – in their documentary, “Frank Zappa: New York and Elsewhere.”

Whereas the Mudd Club show took place early into the tour, the concert at Munich’s Olympiahalle arena was the final show and saw the band firing all on cylinders after three months on the road together. The set, which included most of the songs played at the Mudd Club, was nearly twice as long and also featured such highlights as “Cosmik Debris,” “Dancin’ Fool,” “Pound For A Brown,” “The Illinois Enema Bandit,” and a cover of Tony Allen’s “Nite Owl.” Notably the band played an early rendition of “Pick Me, I’m Clean,” which Zappa would release the following year on the double live album, Tinsel Town Rebellion.

Zappa ’80: Mudd Club/Munich is an opportunity to experience Zappa and his terrific yet transitory 1980 band playing two fantastic concerts at two very different venues for the first time.
