odd mixture of tracks on this album made more
sense on the original LP release, where a person
was treated to one side of "band"
material followed by a side of Synclavier pieces.
such, Frank Zappa Meets The
Mothers Of Prevention is a
good album for anyone who is curious about
Frank's Synclavier work but would like the
cushion of some "normal stuff" as well.
"band" material is from the Steve Vai
period, for the most part, but I believe Ike
Willis' vocals were added later. There are two
instrumentals (non-synclavier) that are real
classics and will help the uninitiated to get a
better idea of where the Synclavier pieces are
title itself comes from Porn
Wars which is the real
focal point of this album.
the taped transcripts of the PMRC-instigated
media circus (the 1985 Senate hearings on the
possibility of rating rock records), Frank
whipped up a 12-minute montage of Synclavier
sound mixed with several of the speakers at the
hearings saying things like, "Bend up and
smell my anal vapors."
