New York, NY. (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - The Zappa Family Trust, headed by Frank Zappa's widow Gail Zappa, operates under the principal of AAAFNRAA: Anything, Anywhere, Anytime For No Reason At All. It's a phrase that Frank Zappa used often in his lifetime and it serves as a guiding principle for much of the work carried out by the Trust today.

Gail says, "It is a key factor in the decision-making process that governs our output. Strange things happen for inexplicable reasons; we like to take advantage of the possibilities that may come from these events. We like to do that more than we like to try to figure out why they occurred."

While traditional record labels plan release schedules months in advance, Vaulternative and Zappa Records, two labels administered by the Trust, often release albums on Zappa.com with little to no warning. Gail Zappa and archivist/Vaultmeister Joe Travers released the new compilation album 'One Shot Deal,' collated from Frank Zappa assemblages, concert tracks and outtakes from 1972 to 1981, as soon as it rolled off the assembly line.
The new Honker Home Video (another imprint administered by the Trust) DVD release "The Torture Never Stops" comes with special cardboard No-D (think 3-D, but the opposite) glasses. Take a look:
The Zappa Family Trust's mission is to celebrate and protect the legacy of Frank Zappa. Frank Zappa, American composer, was born in 1940 and died in 1993.
Expect plenty more surprises in 2008 from the Zappa Family Trust.
