This album was preceeded by the Thing-Fish project coming to visual fruition via a 'Hustler' magazine pictorial spread, April 1984, financed by Larry Flynt. It featured 'Ample Annie', who had an act 'Slutty Suzy' & 'Sluts Are Us' and was selected for the promotional feature by Zappa.

An 'On Broadway' Musical poster also appeared. See images.
