This pamphlet folds out into a poster promoting short film Hello Skinny, by Graeme Whifler in collaboration with avant-renegade sound and visual collective The Residents. It was released by Ralph Records in the same way that the band’s album Duck Stab was two years earlier, featuring the song and soundtrack of the picture. The spread depicts a ghoulish still of Brigitte Terris, the actor in the film and a man convinced he was French actress Bridgit Bardot released from a mental institution prior to 1980. It also includes images of the album cover of The Resident’s concept album, The Third Reich Rock’n’Roll released the same year in special edition.
