Foggy G, "The Songs That Were Played," We're Only In It For The Touring

1968: The actual "Gas Mask" track from the "Weasels Ripped My Flesh" album is a sample of the improvisation common during this tour. Originally taken from a Fall '68 performance, the title "Gas Mask" has come to mean any improvisational music highlighted (or possibly tainted?) by Roy Estrada's tortured and painful "singing". At the beginning of shows, during such Monster tunes as "King Kong" and "Little House", and liberally sprinkled through many a show, this type of improvisation pops up and provides that unique Mothers flavor to the music.
