  3. “Toad-O-Line” is a musical riff on the track “Hold the Line” by Toto, who are harshly criticized by Zappa on this record for backstage debauchery of the worst, but by no means exceptional.
  4. * Items below may differ depending on the release. Review Frank Zappa's satirical rock opera, Joe's Garage, is ambitious and mad, brilliant, peculiar and incoherent–epithets that have also been applied to German expressionist Georg Buchner's unfinished play, Woyzeck. This may seem like a ludicrously lofty cross-cultural reference to attach to an album most notorious for a song about Catholic.
  5. May 02,  · Such is the premise of Joe's Garage, Frank Zappa's three-act concept album which explores the world of groupies, governments, sex toys, and Catholic school girls. As always, Zappa's aim is true and his scope wide, following Joe (voiced by his long-time co-conspirator, Ike Willis) as he starts a band, loses his girl, falls in love with a robot /5().
  6. Joe's Garage was originally released in in two separate parts; Act I came first, followed by a two-record set containing Acts II & III. Joe's Garage is generally regarded as one of Zappa's finest post-'60s conceptual works, a sprawling, satirical rock opera about a totalitarian future in which music is outlawed to control the population. The narrative is long, winding, and occasionally.
  7. "Toad-O Line" is the only instrumental piece on the LP Joe's Garage, Act I. It served as an intermezzo between "Wet T-Shirt Nite" and "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?" -- a way to make the crude shift in the story line more acceptable.
