Frank Zappa: "Son of Suzy Creamcheese"

Robert Shelton, The New York Times, 25 December 1966


THE MOST original new group to simmer out of the steaming rock 'n' roll underground in the last hour and one-half is an audacious crew from the West Coast called the Mothers of Invention. The eight-member group will be appearing through New Year's Eve at the Balloon Farm, the new haven for young hippies at 23 St. Mark's Place, atop The Dom.
