Re: Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz here!
Very definitely an homage/pastiche/style-parody of Zappa's early '70s period. We anticipated a lot of time needed for that and set aside an entire day. But we knocked it out in 3 hours, and 17 or 18 separate sections! there are some transitions that sound like edits, and they are, but some that are edits and don't sound like it, and some that sound like it but aren't! Unfortunately, our instrumentation doesn't allow us to play it live. :(
