first, mods, please do not move this to the music forum....first, that forum is dead and yes, this is an album but it is all about CT's dealing with the gov and population control...

i will explain.....

this is my favorite album of all is called 'thing fish' by frank zappa. it takes many listens to catch everything...i will try to post some of the stuff that pops up today...
most of the lyrics are sung in a sort of makeshift 'amos and andy type "black" dialect...the guy singing is ike willis, a black man.....he used to walk around th studio making fun of current events in that voice, so zappa wrote the album...

ok, the thing fish....

the premise of the album is the government is experimenting on citizens...the goal is to get rid of "highly rythmic individuals and sissy boys"(homosexuals and blacks)
they have cooked up a potion caled 'galoot cologne(pronounced galoot colog-na), satirizing bruit cologne.
afraid of screwing up, before the gov dumps it into the water supply, they decide to experiment with it on inmates of san quenton(where country music star once sang) via the mashed potatos....
the galoot cologne turns them into 'mammy nuns'

since they can't go back to work cause of ho they look, they are forced to perform broadway musicals.

it goes on to cover all sorts of things and it takes time to wrap your head around. the narrator is the thing fish..he and the mammy nuns end up being most of the only people left walking cause everything else the gov tried didn't work on the mammy nuns.


keep in mind, this album was made in 1984.....

some snippets to give you an idea...

from the prologue


Once upon a time, musta been 'round October, few years back, in one o' dose TOP SECRET LABMO-TORIES de gubbnint keep stashed away underneath Virginia, an EVIL PRINCE, occasion'ly employed as a part-time THEATRICAL CRITICIZER set to woikin' on a plot fo de systematic GENOCIDICAL REMOVE'LANCE of all unwanted highly-rhythmic individj'lls an' sissy-boys!

Next thing y'know, fagnits be droppin' off like flies . . . 'long wit a large number of severely-tanned individj'lls, pre-zumnably of HAY'CHEN EXTRAKMENT!

Thass right! It'd turn ya' into a 'MAMMY NUN'! Head like a potato . . . lips like a duck . . . big ol' hands, puffin' up! BIG ONES! Science! ME-jev'l re-LIJ-mus costumery all over yo' BODY! Yow! Oh yeah! Mmmm-hmmm!


mammy nuns


Step right up, folks, 'n meet de 'MAMMY NUNS'! You two ugly white folks hafta excuse de SISTERS, as what dey put in de mash potatoes have rendered dem INCONTINENT! Anyhow, ovuh heahhhh, de scintillating SISTER OWL-GONKWIN-JANE COW-HOON, and de delectable SISTER GHENGHIS-ADONIS-OSMOSIS . . . 'long wif SISTER POTATO-HEAD BOBBY BROWN, and de ever-popular SISTER ANNE de DEVINE . . . an' howsabouta heart-warmin' welcome fo' SISTER JASMINE NOXEMA-TAPIOCA an' her unscrutable companium, SISTER OB'DEWLLA 'X' . . . an' I's yo host: de THING-FISH!


galoot up-date


Well, dey's too damn excited 'bout de sissies dey was knockin' off, 'n workin' up an uncreedable variety of theoretical scenarios, to explain away how come de fagnits all be croakin' at de same time in-- NOVEMBER
De month o' NOVEMBUH, reekin' of tainted CO-LOG-NUM! Dey booked in de heavy pseudo re-LIJ-mus talent to pronunciate de doc-TRINE of BIBLICAL RETRIBUTIUM!


telling you guys...if you are into strange stuff and like to break things down, there is all kinds of stuff buried in this album....water supply sabotage and things.....half is sung and half is narrated.....
it is a fantastic, conspiracy themed record that still holds water today....
