(LOS ANGELES, CA) — In the three weeks that The Chris Isaak Show has aired on Showtime, one thing has become evident: There are a lot of naked women in the show’s rock ‘n’ roll world. Take Mona, the show’s spinning oracle who nonchalantly offers cryptic advice to Chris Isaak, who is nonplussed by the fact that she’s completely naked.

As to where Isaak got the idea for such a character, he told LAUNCH, "That’s based on a real character. Bimbo’s is a real nightclub in San Francisco. When you play there, they have a woman who, through a series of mirrors, is projected up behind the bar in a fish tank, so she looks like a little mermaid swimming, but she’s actually down below the club. And being a musician, you have time between sets and stuff to kill, and sometimes you don’t want to go out and just talk to people in the club–it’s kind of noisy–so you can go downstairs and hang out with Mona. Go downstairs and talk. She’s got nothing to do–she’s just spinning around on the table."

At least Mona’s getting paid to be naked. Women shed their clothes in practically every episode of the show, and LAUNCH asked Isaak what the deal was with all the skin. "What can I say? There’s naked people. They can’t keep their clothes on. I keep telling them, ‘Leave your clothes on. What are you doing? People are watching,’ but they strip off when they get a chance. I know this is something that my band and I, we kind of. . . it’s an embellishment. That’s a fancier word. I think it’s a lie. We just wanted to make ourselves look more attractive."

The Chris Isaak Show airs Monday (April 2) at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime and features a guest appearance by the Eagles’ Joe Walsh.
