The Manson Family: An Opera: Act 2: 'The Family' - Rape Music (Intro. This is an opera way before its time. Composer John Moran utilizes minimalist piano, strings, sound effects (such as chirping birds, wailing sirens, zooming cars, et. and tape loops to evoke the thoughts and actions of Charlie Manson, the Family and the justice system in regard to the Tate/LaBianca murders and their aftermath. Among the gifted vocalists on this disc is Iggy Pop using his unique baritone to depict the prosecutor.

Because Manson in real life was obsessed with the Beatles, especially their White Album, Moran introduces two brilliant interludes where the "Beatles" return as a cross between divine prophets and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. One thing I find interesting about Manson as a character is that the family believed that they were with God then. For them, God wasn't something you heard about on Sunday when you hedged your spiritual bets and went to church. He was right there with them. And they believed that revelations were coming down to them through the Beatles' 'White Album. It's twisted and negative, but it's also inspiring in a way.
