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.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 12th May 2015
While it can stand on its own, it doesn't hold as a full-blown concept album like many of the Residents albums. I imagine it as droning, live material fitting into the Mole story of the Mark of the Mole. However, Intermission is an exemplary album of early electro and industrial music, while still having a Philip Glass-like quality of repetitive female singers. It's a little dense and demanding, but well worth a careful listen. If it clicks with you, then you'll love Intermission. It has many similar themes and sounds as Mark of the Mole, but the music is a little lighter, a little more direct.
