The Residents make a triumphant return to their pREServed reissue series this week with the release of an expanded edition of God In Three Persons!
Produced with The Cryptic Corporation using archival tapes supplied by the group themselves, this package explores and expands the classic 1988 album, which saw The Residents work for the first time in an extended narrative form, enabled by the advent of the CD in the mid-late 1980s. “God In Three Persons” explores the obsessive, toxic but ultimately loving relationship between the narrator, Mr. X, and a pair of conjoined twins – this set includes full lyrics, previously unheard demos, live recordings, and an extended 23 minute piece previously unknown to fans and long forgotten by The Residents themselves. Check out the teaser below…
Remastered, expanded, and pREServed for future generations – this is The Residents as we’ve always wanted to hear them, and the latest in a series of archival reissues that will continue throughout 2019 and beyond. Look out for forthcoming “Not Available”, “WB Album/B.S.”, “Cube-E” and “Freak Show” sets, as well as a number of vinyl releases.
