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. ...view item »

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...view item »

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 descripti...view item »

Intermission

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 ...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 ...view item »

The Residents
Eskimo

I recently gave Eskimo another listen and was blown away. It finally makes sense to me. I still don't know what it is, but I like it and I recognise it as a crowning achievement in the art of sound. Eskimo completely left rock music behind. Not just rock, but all Western music, and all African-derived music forms. They also left English behind, ...view item »

The Residents
Animal Lover

Who could've guessed that if The Residents made an album of pretty, delicate sounding music, and largely replaced Homer's shout-singing with equally pretty guest female vocals that I would like the result so very much? Well hey-- I do! Like it! Very much! The lyrics are still as odd and obtuse as ever, which sometimes leaves me a bit cold, but t...view item »
