Thanks to my own dear mother, my tiny mind was permanently warped at a worryingly early age by repeated listening to those first three Mothers albums. They remain firm favourites to this day, particularly We’re Only In It For the Money, one of the most brilliant albums of all time. An avant-garde, through-composed suite mixing parodic rock with musique concrète it astutely and ruthlessly summed up and satirized the hippie phenomenon, foreshadowing the movement’s disillusioned collapse at Altamont and Kent State in the process. Flower Power sucks indeed.
