A la Carte is quite a well known French expression (meaning according to the card) which is used worldwide. The album cover is a satirical take on this, as it shows a green pig's head, wearing headphones and eating a vinyl disc.

A stand alone single was released in 1984 called "Die Braut und der Matrose", released on 7 inch and in Austria on Catalogue number EMI Columbia 1333337. Although this song isn't on the album, it is actually a variation of the album title "Aloahe".
