Flat Earth Society & Mauro Pawlowski

Homage to Mr Zappa. Don’t worry, Frank is dead anyway.

To attempt to describe the music of Flat earth Society is an impossible (and pointless) task. But it is clear that the old Frank has made quite an impression on the young Peter vermeersch. And what is even more true: they have a lot of common musical and other heroes and sources. Under the title ‘Terms of Embarrassment’, Flat Earth Society, featuring the heathen guitar gods Pierre Vervloesem and Mauro Pawlowski, pays homage to Mr Zappa. Don’t expect covers, but a concert that will make the famous moustache gleam once again in the grave. An evening mainly of fresh material, wonderfully embarrassing moments, new pieces like ‘Hail Gail!’, ‘Me Standard, You Poor’ and ‘Who’s wrong, who’s right and who’s left behind’, over-long guitar solos and tight, exciting collective passages. And for anyone who, given the context, might get into trouble because of this: don’t worry, Frank is dead anyway.

 

Try-out: March 16 2014, Schuttershof, Middelburg, The Netherlands

Premiere: March 21 2014, deSingel, Antwerp, Belgium

13 is a round number according to Flat Earth Society and so it’s a jubilee year! We raise the flag and sing our song. On our new album, which we conveniently called ‘13’, we serve you our usual unusual portion of gas, chaos & chazz. The 13th album contains 13 new pieces, some more instrumental than the other. The musical journey defies varying landscapes and weather conditions, the orchestra remains ever fresh and unshaven, the music is our pocketknife and compass, the words are of a profoundly deep depth. The CD industry will completely revitalize.

On tour: Canada/USA (June 2014) and Japan (September 2014)
