An Interview With Lorraine Belcher

Andrew just published an interview he did with Lorraine Belcher, full of wonderful little nuggets such as this one:

He told me that his wife never made a sound during sex. This made him feel bad. One day, after he’d been on the road to a meeting in LA for awhile, he realised he’d forgotten something and turned around. When he got home he found his wife passed out on the bed with a potato carved like a dildo. He was originally very upset, since she’d apparently been so satisfied she had to take a nap! Then he asked her to tell him about the potato. She had apparently tried all the other vegetables and found the potato to be the most harmonious with the vaginal canal….pH balance, etc. It didn’t produce any kind of infection or discharge, and held up well. That’s why he wrote Call any Vegetable.

Check out the full interview here.

    An exceptional interview, and quite a dynamic woman, Lorraine. It’s really great to get this non-airbrushed history of the early Mothers and Frank Zappa. I do hope she writes that book. As we start to lose more eyewitnesses to that particular period, the authenticity of that era will become increasingly muddled by those with different agendas than straight historical and musical ones.

    If my interpretation of what Lorraine said is correct, it sounds as if she is implying Frank would have left Gail to be with her, but Moon was on the way. Did anyone else get this impression. Do you think Frank really called her lumpy gravy? I don’t have the Lumpy Gravy LP so I don’t now if it says for “Lumpy Gravy” to write.

    I read “which was my nickname for him” to mean that she called him “Lumpy Gravy”, not the other way around.

    And, if you add oral sex to the mix, “Lumpy Gravy” makes just so much more sense as a nickname for FZ’s body liquid…
