FREE ENERGY  -  THE GRANDMOTHERS OF INVENTION

The GrandMothers of Invention is more than a tribute band of the Mothers of Invention. The core members, since their inception in 1981, are comprised of THE original Mothers of Invention. Sadly,  as the last decade has seen the passing of several prominent figures in this legendary/revolutionary band, two of five surviving members remain active,  dedicated to performing the music of its founder, Frank Zappa,  as well as their own compositions. Free Energy features Don Preston on keyboards, key-bass, mini moog, lead vocals, commentary, rice cookers - Bunk Gardner,  Tenor Saxophone, Flute, vocals, commentary, (traded sweetpants for) Speedo free-flow swimming goggles - Christopher Garcia, drums, vocalese percussion, vocals, commentary, & special guest, Ed Mann on percussion, marimba & vibes.  Tracks 1 thru 6, 12 were recorded live at the Torrance City Library,  Torrance, CA, 11/29/2017.  Tracks 7,8,9,10 recorded at Zoo Studios, Diamond Bar, CA, sometime in 2017. Track 11 comes from Ed Mann at an undisclosed location, sometime between now and then, & tracks 13, 14 were recorded live at Craig's Place, Santa Monica, CA. Mixed at Zoo Studios by Martin Holland, Don Preston, John Baker and Kerry Murphy. Skillfully mastered by Jorge Solovera (Assimsim Records, Salvador, Bahia, BR). Produced by Don Preston and Martin Holland, Mom's Records, San Juan Capistrano, CA, US  copyright April 5, 2018
