Frank Zappa released his 3rd solo album on Oct. 23, 1970. It was titled "Chunga's Revenge". The LP marks the first appearance of former Turtles members Flo & Eddie (Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan) on a Zappa record.
Supposedly, the title is based off a small industrial Gypsy vacuum sweeper. A "chunga" was a mutated individual of the sort Zappa depicted in such songs as "The Idiot Bastard Son." The term was coined by Dan O'Brien, a teenage Zappa admirer, for the effects of the Hiroshima blast on later generations.
Happy 48th Birthday to "Chunga's Revenge"!!!!
