The Residents
Eskimo Deconstructed

Calling all music makers and dreamers of dreams, them helpful folk The Residents have deconstructed their 1979 classic album 'Eskimo' in order for people to remix and rework it; it's a way to 'screw with The Residents’ music just like they’ve been screwing with everybody else’s'. Consisting of over 'seventy loops, chants, musical fragments and sound effects extracted from the original multitrack tapes', this is a treat for music-makers as well as those who wish to peer beneath the hood of a classic album. 

The Residents
Mole Box, The Complete Mole Trilogy pREServed

Between 1981 and 1985, legendary art/multimedia collective The Residents famously released a triptych of albums bracketed as ‘The Mole Trilogy’, an undertaking that went on to include some notorious live performances. This new 6xCD set represents the final word on this era, including all three albums, a full live recording and 3 hours of previously unreleased music.

The Residents
I Am A Resident!

Still mysterious 30+ years later, big-eyed weirdos the Residents are still ahead of the curve in doing unusual things. Here, they have asked fans to re-work, re-mash, re-mix tracks and then the Residents re-interpret these new versions creating a great big onion with loads of layers of new sound. 

The Residents

The Residents
The W***** B*** Album

This bootlegged but never officially released collection of 1970-71 recordings was sent as a demo to Warner Brothers, only to be swiftly rejected and returned to “The Residents”, thereby christening the nascent pranksters. Incorporating 35 rapid-fire tracks and all manner of pre-eyeball-headed cacophony and chaos, it retains its surreal, hair-raising, outsider power.

The Residents
Please Do Not Steal It

The 1979 record Please Do Not Steal It was known for simply being left with radio stations all over the USA with only the album art to go off: This is a special DJ record of The Residents’ alleged music. Please Do Not Steal It! Keep it at your station – we need the radio airplay. Both descriptive and assertive, this release originally had 975 copies made, but this specific 180g white coloured vinyl reissue LP is limited to 1000. Get 'um whilst they're hot (well, warm)!  

The Residents
80 Aching Orphans - 45 Years Of The Residents

A massive 80 tracks over 4 CDs put together with the help of the band. This anthology truly covers their 45 plus years of output. Includes tracks that haven’t been released on CD before, as well as live recordings and other selected tracks. Presented with a blow by blow booklet this is a great introduction to to mental experimental world of The Residents.

The Residents
Intermission

Available on 180 gram clear vinyl on Music on Vinyl. Avantgarde and anonymous art collective The Residents Originally released Intermissions in 1982. They made it very clear that it was not the 3rd chapter of the Mole trilogy (which seemed to never actually exist), but a cutting of related materials. Limited repressing of 1000 copies.

The Residents
Mush-Room

Avant-garde American art collective, The Residents (you know, the guys dressed in tuxedos with eyeballs for heads) formed in the mid-seventies and have been doing things their way ever since, releasing over 60 albums in the process. The music for their new album Mush-Room was originally written for the Belgian theatre and dance company Grace Ellen Barkley and Need Company. Written using classical sensibilities, the music is percussive and electronic and will inspire the choreographer in you. Mush-Room is available on  vinyl LP.

The Residents
Whatever Happened To Vileness Fats? / The Census Taker

Sound art group the Residents both did and didn't make a film and both did and didn't provide the soundtrack to it. This CD is half-titled 'Whatever Happened To Vileness Fats?', because they abandoned filming Vileness Fats half way through. Later, they collected the scenes and scored a short visual project that collected the scenes. You can now hear the weird result from the band of eyeballs on this here recording, along with their soundtrack to 'The Census Taker', a 1984 film that actually does exist. For real.

The Residents
Santa Dog

Not much is known about the bizarre experimental weirdness that is The Residents. Although it is believed that they originate from San Fransisco, their origins and identities have remained a well kept secret which seems appropriately mysterious for such an enchantingly strange band. 'Santa Dog' is essentially a Christmas record, complete with a fold-out Christmassy sleeve. A beautifully commercial concept for a band who have always deliberately courted obscurity.

The Residents
Residue Of The Residents

If only all music could be this skronky and weird. More Devo than Devo, ‘Residue of The Residents’ features rare tracks, experiments and outtakes from this legendary and obscure San Francisco collective. This is the first vinyl release of this record and it has been beefed up to a double LP that documents the Residents most creative and exciting period. This is what I always imagined music in the future would sound like. Something went wrong.
