Label: Zappa Records
The Mothers captured on Fillmore East is the reformed incarnation featuring Flo & Eddie (Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan of The Turtles). Basically, what we have here is one long -- and dense -- satire on the then-exploding rock scene, one soaked in scatological humor and lots of sex jokes about groupies. Oddly enough, much of the ensemble's dialog resembles the parody-based banter found in early pornographic films such as Deep Throat and The Devil in Miss Jones. Not a surprise when you consider Zappa's voracious appetite for American pop-junk: grindhouse flicks, pulp fiction, nudie rags, etc.
