** The liner notes on the album cover beneath the photograph make mention of a "gypsy mutant industrial vacuum cleaner" and "dozens of imported castanets, clutched by the horrible suction of its heavy duty hose". Gypsies would turn up in other Zappa songs too, like "Packard Goose" from ''Music/JoesGarage'' ("sounds like an elegant gypsy"). Vacuum cleaner imagery is prominent in ''Film/TwoHundredMotels'' (1971) and the Central Scrutinizer in ''Music/JoesGarage'' (1979) is also described as a "cross between a vacuum cleaner and a piggy bank with marital aid stuck all over with it". The woman in "Camarillo Brillo" (''Music/OverNiteSensation'') also hangs her castanets up. The word "heavy duty" returns in "Montana" (also from ''Music/OverNiteSensation'') in the line "heavy duty zircon encrusted tweezers". Hoses are also part of Zappa's conceptual continuity.
** "Chunga's Revenge" sounds like a typical B-monster movie title. "Transylvania Boogie" also brings up imagery from ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'', with the image of a dancing gypsy around a fire inside the album sleeve another stereotypical Romanian folk image. In "Would You Go All The Way?" the protagonists are watching a monster movie, further continuing Zappa's conceptual continuity surrounding monster movies.
