Spoog, a side project, resulted with impromptu gigs when one or another member of the band was out of town. Anzalone and Kavoussi also played in Uncle Wiggly. Kavoussi has made solo records billed as pHoaming Edison. The line-up of Thomas, Kavoussi, Beekman and Luttman was stable for a lengthy period until Beekman's duties were taken over in 1998 by Dave Abel.
In 2003, Luttman requested a leave of absence from Fly Ashtray, and in the same year Eric Marc Cohen took over drum duties.
The band released two records on Shimmy Disc and worked with Kramer.
Most recently, the band's music was featured in “Responsible Ballet and What We Need Is a Bench to Put Books On”, a dance piece choreographed by Jon Kinzel, and performed at The Kitchen in New York City.
