Is already, under John Zorn.

Should be perhaps separated from Zorn, just like Naked City, Masada, Painkiller, etc.

Electric Masada means anyway only At The Mountain Of Madness (the first CD, second one is Bar Kokhba), and the fourth Birthday Celebration album.

Actually, nobody's bothered to include the Painkiller albums yet. Syzygy said someone could about a year ago, but I guess we're too lazy?

While it's probably unfair to the members of Masada to only include them under John Zorn, it's probably for the best to have everything under one label instead of cluttering things up.

We separated out Painkiller recently.

Captain Capricorn is trying to sort out the different Zorn projects.  Naked City is next.  Masada will probably follow.

^ Are the Cobra albums added as well? They should probably receive the same treatment.

I think it gets trickier to decide with "The Book Of Angels" and "The 50th Birthday" collection. They're practically a serie of albums played by collaborators or bands affiliated with Zorn, with Zorn's compositions, but almost without Zorn partaking. The first, as a continuation of Masada, could likely be conventionally moved under that major concept, while the "50th Birthday" 12-pack, also conventionally, remains under Zorn.

So it's perhaps better to make out of Masada a separate constellation altogether: the two series, Electric Masada (only Mountain of Madness), Masada String Trio.

Also re:splitting, what about the Moonchild series? They're also accounted as a separate band.

Talk to CC Rico.  He's in charge of all these matters as far as I'm concerned.

Aha, so you guys did some work when I wasn't paying attention! I'm surprised. ;-) Is it just me, or are there no covers for them? Then again, do we even want the original graphic cover art?
