dEUS is a Belgian alternative rock group, active since the early 1990s. They have achieved some fame in Europe and the U.S., but strictly as a cult band.
The first notes of Little Umbrellas were sampled in the song "W.C.'s First Draft", which can be found as the second track on their debut album: Worst Case Scenario (1994).
The group's lead singer, Tom Barman, claims he has respect for Zappa's musical talent, but actually likes Captain Beefheart more. Since 2005 Mauro Pawlowski, also a Zappa fan, joined dEUS as a member.
