Suzy Creamcheese

Suzy Creamcheese was a fictional vocalist and character on and in a number of albums by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention. On the album Freak Out! (which features a "letter" from Suzy Creamcheese on the back cover), Suzy Creamcheese was played by Jeannie Vassoir; on Absolutely Free and Mothermania it was Lisa Cohen; and on We're Only in It for the Money and Uncle Meat it was Pamela Zarubica.

As an indication of the surreal nature of the running Suzy Creamcheese gag in Frank Zappa's work, the following from "The Return of the Son of Monster Magnet" may give a little clue:

Male voice: Suzy?
Female voice: Yes?
Male voice: Suzy Creamcheese?
Female voice: Yes?
Male voice: This is the voice of your conscience baby ... uh, I just want to check one thing out with you ... you don't mind, do ya?
Female voice: What?
Male voice: Suzy Creamcheese, honey, what's got into ya?

Zappa claims that in a 1967 tour in Europe, some fans asked him if Suzy toured with them. Because of that, Zappa used Zarubica as Suzy in that tour.

The track "Requiem For Suzy Creamcheese" appears on the vinyl LP Psychedelia—A Musical Light Show by The Mesmerizing Eye (Smash Records MGS-27090).

The band Teddy & His Patches recorded a track called "Suzy Creamcheese" which contains a remake of the intro to "The Return of the Son of Monster Magnet." It has appeared on several garage rock and psychedelic rock compilations such as Love Is the Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets 1965–1970, Pebbles, Volume 3, Trash Box, and Acid Dreams.
