Formed in the early 1970s, The Residents have been charting a unique path through the musical landscape for over 45 years. From far-out, experimental recordings to highly conceptual, innovative multi-platform projects, the band has refused to stand still, and continues to move in several different directions at once.
Produced with The Cryptic Corporation, and with full access to The Residents’ extensive tape archive, this package explores and expands the classic third album and related 1976-1977 material, as well as the album’s evolution on the live stage. Including the album restored to its original conceptual running order, plus long-forgotten unreleased material, live-in-the-studio tracks and concert recordings, this is The Residents as we’ve always wanted to hear them.
Remastered, expanded, and pREServed for future generations – this is the third in a series of archival Residents reissues that will continue throughout 2018 and beyond.
