This week The Residents, long known as the world’s most mysterious and reclusive band, recently announced a new chapter in their lengthy and legendary career – not just a new album but a completely new concept: I AM A RESIDENT! Available in limited vinyl and 2CD editions.
Having invited fans to record cover versions of their songs via PledgeMusic, the group reworked that material into the ultimate Residents mashup, editing, looping and over-dubbing to create something entirely new. But, so high was the standard (and so brilliant the minds of Residents fans the world over), the resulting album (available as a 2CD set – CDBRED727) could not harness everything The Residents hoped to include, and so the band themselves present here thirteen hand-picked, complete selections, especially chosen for this vinyl release.
From the obscure to the classic, this is The Residents as you’ve never heard them before. Because it isn’t them. It’s a collection of their material performed by fans, as we tried to describe above. Did we miss something? Is this thing even on?
