Joe's Garage Acts I, II & III by Frank Zappa
Released: Sep 1979
Label: Zappa Records
Frank Zappa never subscribed to the belief that, as a satirist, there are places one simply doesn't venture (hence why he inexplicably appears in blackface on the cover). Joe's Garage is one of the composer's most ambitious projects: an X-rated opera about a young rock musician making his way through a society overrun by massive government, oppressive religion, New Age hokum, sexual perversion and art censorship. It was a prescient story, considering the record came out in 1979, the year just before Ronald Reagan took office and subsequently kick-started the modern neo-con movement in America.
