The GTO's began as a bunch of wildly outrageous girls who frequented the Sunset Strip in LA and hung out with the bands and groups, who performed in that area during the late 1960s, such as Carl Franzoni & The Log Cabin commune, the Magic Band and Mothers Of Invention. They effectively coined the phrase 'groupies' and initially became the Cherry Sisters, then became a spontaneous performance-art collective known as the Laurel Canyon Ballet Company. Two members were also babysitters in the Zappa household. In 1969 Zappa collected this group together and produced them (as one of his side projects) as the GTO's, an acronym for Girls Together Outrageously. 'Permanent Damage' consequently featured a number of renowned musicians who happened to be around the LA 'freak scene' during these psychedelic and experimental music times. The group also crossed paths with the notorious Plaster Casters Of Chicago, who became the subject upon two of their album tracks.
