Notes About This Song

FZ liner notes on "Freak Out!" (1966): "'The Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet' (Unfinished Ballet in Two Tableaux): I. Ritual Dance of the Child-Killer. II. Nullis Pretii (No Commercial Potential), is what freaks sound like when you turn them loose in a recording studio at one o’clock in the morning on $500 worth of rented percussion equipment. A bright snappy number. Hotcha!"

"Throughout his life, Zappa’s music was both eclectic and uneven. At his worst he could be amateurish, as in the early Return of the Son of Monster Magnet. - Time Magazine, 1993, "The Duke of Prunes", Michael Walsh

"Two long-play records contain a plethora of sounds and styles and titles such as 'Hungry Freaks, Daddy', 'Who Are The Brain Police?', 'Wowie Zowie', 'Help, I'm A Rock', and 'The Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet'. The last runs 12:17 minutes and includes one section subtitled 'Ritual Dance of the Child Killer'. The composition is incomplete, but Verve needed something for Side 4, Frank declared." - Herald Examiner, 1966, "Mothers invent sounds worse than music", Bob Levinson

The “Monster Magnet” mentioned in the title of this closing piece is the magnetic recording head on a tape machine. The name of a segment within, “Ritual Dance of the Child-Killer,” pays tribute to Igor Stravinsky by recalling the “Ritual Dance” movement from The Rite Of Spring. Here, it refers to Frank’s advances throughout the second half of the album on young Suzy (her innocent self is being killed off, in spite of her pre-heavy-breathing exclamation, “Forget it!”). Frank’s showing how capable hands with recording technology at their disposal can publicly do whatever they want with supposedly private moments, also transforming the world into whatever the composer wishes in the interest of forging mental weaponry against corruption and repression. Frank makes his own microcosm out of the real world to zoom-in on and contort that reality, pointing out how silly it is and how sinister are some of the forces behind the way it’s turned out so far. (The “look behind the scenes” motif will continue in Zappa’s music, album-cover images and films.) The characters in his microcosm are often underdogs or the people who deviate from standard societal behavior: freaks, munchkins, Potato-Head Bobby, etc.

Teddy And His Patches "borrowed" the opening dialogue for their 1967 song called Suzy Creamcheese.
