THE LATEST IN A SERIES OF DEEP, ARCHIVAL RE-ISSUES FROM THE LEGENDARY SAN FRANCISCO COLLECTIVE. LONG-AWAITED BY THE RESIDENTS’ LARGE INTERNATIONAL FANBASE!
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. But you probably already knew that.
Produced with The Cryptic Corporation using archival tapes supplied by The Residents themselves, this package explores and expands the classic 1979 album – the record which brought The Residents to a wider, international audience. Including an acapella suite, live in the studio recordings, related unreleased recordings, the ‘Goosebump’ and ‘Replacement’ projects and live tracks, this is The Residents as we’ve always wanted to hear them.
Bonus material includes unheard 1978 Demo, album acapellas, unreleased tracks and live in the studio material.
Remastered, expanded, and pREServed for future generations – this is the latest in a series of archival Residents reissues that will continue throughout 2019 and beyond. Look out for the ‘Commercial Album’ 2CD pREServed set, and a forthcoming ‘Mole Trilogy’ box set.
