The Residents ‘pREServed‘ reissue series continues with Gingerbread Man, available here as a 3CD expanded edition AND on vinyl for the very first time!
The Residents: Gingerbread Man, 3CD pREServed Edition
Formed in the early 1970s, The Residents have been charting a unique path through the musical landscape for almost fifty years. From far-out, experimental recordings to highly conceptual, innovative multi-platform projects, the band refuses to stand still, and continues to move in several different directions at once.
Produced with The Cryptic Corporation using archival tapes supplied by the group themselves, this package explores and expands the classic 1994 album – another series of character studies, as first explored on the Freak Show project – alongside the contemporary “Hunters” OST recording, an instrumental suite composed to accompany the 1995 TV show of the same name. Disc Two also includes, in full, the previously unreleased “Fat Boy” tape, a collection of material compiled by the group in early 1994 and either adapted and incorporated into “Gingerbread Man” and “Hunters” or quickly forgotten… until now.
Remastered, expanded, packed with previously unheard music 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 2021 and beyond. Look out for forthcoming “Wormwood” and “Icky Flix” sets, as well as a number of special vinyl releases.
The Residents will, of course, be resuming their sure-to-be-smash Dog Stab world tour the moment normality is resumed.
The Residents: Gingerbread Man, Limited Edition Vinyl LP
Originally released in 1994 (on CD only) and developed into an interactive CD-Rom project, ‘Gingerbread Man’ remains one of The Residents’ standout works, exploring their own twisted counter-take on the classic 1875 fairy tale.
Nine curious tales of love, hate, pain, art, death, time, age, fear, doubt, confusion and orchids.
Never before released on vinyl, this edition, finally, meets public demand.
Remastered and resplendent in restored original artwork and a picture inner sleeve.
