This collection of essays, documented by an international and interdisciplinary array of scholars, represents the first academically focused volume exploring the creative idiolect of Frank Zappa. Several of the authors are known for contributing significantly to areas such as popular music, cultural, and translation studies, with expertise and interests ranging from musicology to poetics. The publication presents the reader with an understanding of the ontological depth of Zappa's legacy by relating the artist and his texts to a range of cultural, social, technological and musicological factors, as encapsulated in the book's title - Frank Zappa and the And. Zappa's interface with religion, horror, death, movies, modernism, satire, freaks, technology, resistance, censorship and the avant-garde are brought together analytically for the first time, and approached non chronologically, something that strongly complies with the non linear perspective of time Zappa highlights in both his autobiography and recordings. The book employs a variety of analytical approaches, ranging from literary and performance theory, 'horrality' and musicology, to post modern and textually determined readings, and serves as a unique and invaluable guide to Zappa's legacy and creative force.

Sein viel zu früher Tod jährt sich im Dezember zum 25. Mal: Frank Zappa war die wohl facettenreichste Ikone der amerikanischen Musikgeschichte. Der schräge Humor seiner anarchischen Auftritte polarisierte. Immer wieder überschritt er Grenzen – zwischen Gattungen und Musikstilen, zwischen E und U. Während er in Amerika vorrangig als Rockmusiker prominent blieb, verfolgte er in Europa eine Karriere als Komponist und arbeitete etwa mit dem Dirigenten Pierre Boulez oder dem renommierten Ensemble Modern zusammen. Ingo Meyer gelingt das Porträt eines Ausnahmekünstlers, der permanent provozierte, dessen Provokationen aber niemals Selbstzweck waren.

The aim of this book is to provide a complete handbook of information and opinion about the history of the music of the 1970s. There are over 1000 entries on the bands, musicians, songwriters, producers and record labels of this decade, everyone who had any significant impact on the development of rock and pop music. From the stars who, unlike Hendrix, Joplin and Morrison, survived the sixties only to be dudded as dinosaurs, to the angry reactions of punk and the new wave and the sounds of glam rock and disco, this encylopaedia aims to answer any query about any aspect of seventies music. As well as the giants of the decade, such as Queen, Abba and Fleetwood Mac, the book also includes those artists who only flourished briefly.
