We're Only In It For The Money


IMO, this is quite possibly the greatest album anyone has ever made.

Favourite line: "Hey punk, where you goin' with that button on your shirt?" "I'm goin' to the love-in to sit and play my bongos in the dirt."

Mom and Dad is pretty moving. Other People is outstanding. There are so many great moments.

Mood: sensually aromatic

I think it's also set and setting with this album

You have to go back in time.....

picture yourself in your psychedelic dungeon...with the lava lamp turned down low...

You've just finished Kafka's book...and you nervously place the needle on side one...

Owsley's finest is just starting to kick in....the walls are breathing

If you're not a blithering wreck by the end of CPMOD on side two....you've done something wrong

The sinister aroma of this album still haunts me to this day.....I love it !!


Don't judge it on the remixed version....it lacks aroma

This was the first FZ album I ever bought. I dunno what possessed me to get it. I'm glad I did, though.

It was around the 5th album I owned, after Son Of Cheap Thrills, Have I offended someone?, Ship/Witch and ('). I got it because it had Take Your clothes Off When You Dance, which was used by a Dutch band for intro.

This is the first album that I listened to after I decided to try to listen to all of FZ's albums before I die. Needless to say, it sealed the deal for me as far as making that a personal goal for me to achieve in my life. GREAT album from start to finish.

Cool! Another thing about this album is that it's quite full of emotion, which is kind of unusual for FZ (except the usual emotions such as contempt). This one is very contemptuous in parts (like Flower Punk) but it has a lot of other emotions too.
