Un breve estratto dall'apparizione allo Zappanale del 2009 del super-quartetto di Makoto KawabataMani NeumeierGuy Segers e Daevid Allen - battezzato per l'occasione Acid Mothers Guru Guru Gong - è riportato in un vinile a tiratura limitata pubblicato dalla francese Bam Balam, con lo zampino di Tatsuya Yoshida: Pink Lady Lemonade (Sticky Tongue Dada Licks).

Makoto Kawabata of Acid Mothers Temple, Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru, Guy Segers of Univers Zero and Daevid Allen of Gong recorded live at the Zappanale 20 Festival in Germany playing a new, lyrically alien-enhanced, version of the Acid Mothers favourite Pink Lady Lemonade - wonderful stuff.
In a veritable ocean of Frank Zappa tribute bands, many playing Zappa tunes to the stunning highest of orders (some even with real live ex-Mothers in them), an improvising quartet of psychedelic mavericks was always going to stand out in a rather marvelous way. This is a highly desirable and most suitable artifact to mark a musical conflagration which was one undoubtedly one of the highlights of the Festival.
