ERICH ZANN, (c. 1865?-c. 1925). Mute German violinist who ended his life in the Rue d'Auseil in Paris. Some say he played at the Paris Opera House, where an accident in 1897 left the young musician permanently deaf. After this he moved to Stuttgart, married, and had at least one child. Around 1924, he unaccountably left his family and returned to Paris. In another version of his history, Zann was born in 1834, and became one of Europe's greatest violinists. He built his Theater of the Clowns in Rome between 1859 and 1860. This was in honor of the woman he loved, and when she died at a performance, he swore off music. Moving to Paris in 1872, he became a drug addict and a curiosity of that city's artistic scene. In Paris, Zann joined an orchestra at a cheap theater to provide himself with income. He became known to the tenants of his apartment because of the strange unearthly violin music that he played at night. He is believed to have vanished while performing one of his "experimental pieces" in his garret apartment one night. The police were baffled by the lack of clues, and soon afterward called a halt to their search. Zann may have been connected in some manner with Hastur or Tru'nembra. The loss of a manuscript detailing his philosophy has made this determination difficult. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, devils, angels, monsters and fey folk, creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
