The Mothers Of Invention – The Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet

What can be said about the ending track from The Mothers debut album ‘Freak Out’ (1966)?* It’s a beast of breakbeats, wailing, and tape cut up’s that predicted Krautrock, among many other avant-rock “styles”, ahead of time. It can be easy to forget how important Frank Zappa was after all of those years of guitar solo albums and Rock n Roll cynicism, and now and again we need a reminder of his importance.

*Which, incidentally, was the very first ‘Rock’ double album
