Realising a career-long ambition, The Residents finally explore The Blues! Having been turned on to the
music of lost bluesman Alvin Snow, aka Dyin’ Dog, the group presents their interpretations of all ten of
Snow’s known recordings, alongside several new compositions inspired by his work.
Fans will be familiar with The Residents love of cover versions and imposing themselves on the material of
countless seminal artists. ‘Metal, Meat & Bone’ sees the group take that approach a step further, having
discovered a previously unknown artist on their own doorstep and found themselves moved to record
their own tribute to his work. The result is a collision of the pain of the wounded bluesman and the
subversive and unpredictable sound of this most unique of bands.
Having performed a handful of Snow’s songs on their recent ‘In Between Dreams’ world tour, The
Residents now present an entire suite of ‘The Songs Of Dyin’ Dog’ alongside the original Alvin Snow
recordings, as discovered by longtime friend and associate Roland Sheeehan.
“Metal, Meat & Bone” also sees The Residents perform alongside several collaborators, old and new. Eric
Drew Feldman, Nolan Cook, Black Francis, Carla Fabrizio, Sivan Lioncub and Peter Whitehead all
The Residents will be touring their new ‘Dog Stab’ show, including the songs of Dyin’ Dog, across the
world in early 2021. See residents.com for details!
