Notes About This Song

Prelude To The Afternoon Of A Sexually Aroused Gas Mask is a combination of snippets from a Thee Image show in Miami and the 10/28/68 concert at the Royal Festival Hall in London (most of which can be heard on Ahead Of Their Time, although these sections are left out, with the exception of a bit near the end of King Kong, presented here as the beginning of Gas Mask. The piece contains a furious update on the main riff in Didja Get Any Onya?.

The title was inspired by Claude Debussy's "Prélude à l' après-midi d'un faune" (1894).
