Frank Zappa in The Real Frank Zappa Book:
After shuffeling through the rack and finding a couple of Joe Huston records, I made my way toward the cash register and happened to glance at the LP bin. I noticed a strange-looking black-and-white album with a cover with a guy on it who had frizzy gray hair and looked like a mad scientist. I thought it was great that a mad scientist finally made a record, so I picked it up – and there it was, the record with “Ionisation” on it.
After reading that I myself had to listen to this “mad scientist”. Now twenty years later I’m still listening.
