The band was called "Chunky, Novi & Ernie", but only Chunky and Novi are referenced on the OSFA "Star Map"... The only "Ernie" that's on the map is Ernie Watts... - emdebe

There are, of course, a number of references to previous Zappa material (the circular border) & Zappa friends- some of which I also knew (I had just done an album cover for Chunky, Novi & Ernie for instance) I did not know Al Surat, but his name sprung to mind, along with all them other Als as puns on all the Al stars.
