Il gruppo belga The Wrong Object - in cui milita Michel Delville - affina alcune proprie inclinazioni e approda finalmente all'omaggio zappiano, giusto in tempo per il venticinquesimo anniversario della scomparsa: Zappa Jawaka.

Blending the cosmic energies of nu-jazz with modern rock sensibilities and live electronic devices, the music of the Wrong Object is influenced by a vast array of artists ranging from Canterbury Scene prog rock à la Soft Machine and Gong to Squarepusher, Béla Bartok, Amon Tobin, Aka Moon, Sun Ra, Charlie Mingus and Frank Zappa. With their aesthetics still rooted in an array of storied inspirational models, Belgian prog jazz heavyweights The Wrong Object ventures further into hybrid musical territories - pushing the boundaries of progressive jazz, rock and contemporary music.
After more than fifteen years of an existence marked by extensive touring, recording and numerous collaborations with international jazz and rock luminaries (Elton Dean, Harry Beckett , Annie Whitehead, Alex Maguire, Robin Verheyen, Ed Mann, …) and a recent collaboration with the Brussels Philharmonic and the Vlaams Radio Koor (200 Motels-The Suites), Zappa Jawaka marks the band’s first tribute release to the Grand Zazou, one which contains idiosyncratic, fiery version of such favorites as I’m the Slime alongside lesser-known and rarely performed works. This album is sure to please hardcore FZ geeks as well as the uninitiated with a fresh ear for alternative popular entertainment.
