The Zany Business of Being Frank Zappa
By ?, pp 26-29

Automatic translation: The one of the greatest musical geniuses of the 20th century, Frank Zappa, would have turned sixty in 2000 (he died in 1994). The self-styled composer, guitarist and singer's provocative music had a great influence on his contemporaries and successive generations of musicians. His Hungarian admirers, among them Tamás Takats and Jenő Fekete, created a band called Cosmic Debris Band last year, which plays Zappa works. In December, they gave a successful concert at the Medúza Club, and in connection with this, they decided to perform an extended show at the same place on February 16. Before the music program, which starts at ten in the evening and is enriched with show and performance elements, there will be a screening of Frank Zappa's concert films recorded in the 1970s and 1980s.

United Mutations: Hungarian band Cosmik Debris performs the music of Frank Zappa. They played at the 13th Zappanale festival in Bad Doberan, Germany, in 2002. July & August 2003, they toured with Jimmy Carl Black. The band changed its name to Zappa Circus and performed at the Zappanale festival again in 2008.
