FRANK ZAPPA - Pretty Pat

rate me

Artist: Frank Zappa

Title: Pretty Pat


Interviewer: Who came up with the name "Mothers of Invention"?

FZ: I did.

Interviewer: Just . . . ?

FZ: Well, it was sort of forced upon me because, uh, the group was originally

called "The Mothers" and, uh, our original contract was with Verve Records,

a subsidiary of MGM, and they refused to sign a group called "The Mothers"

because they felt that the . . . that it was obscene. And so they wanted to

change it to "The Mothers Auxiliary." So, out of necessity, we became "The

Mothers of Invention." Is that pretty pat?

Interviewer: That's it.

FZ: That's what happened
