THE RESIDENTS

RESIDUE OF THE RESIDENTS

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: 2xLPs
Cata No: SV073
Barcode: 857176003737
Residue of The Residents collects outtakes, rare tracks and
other experiments from this legendary San Francisco collective.
Originally released on Ralph Records in 1983 and
spanning The Residents’ career up to that point, this firsttime
vinyl reissue has been expanded to a double LP and
contains 26 songs from the late ’70s and early ’80s—the
group’s most fertile period.
Highlights from the first LP include the Morricone-inspired
“The Sleeper,” the dreamlike “Whoopy Snort” (initially
on the LAFMS compilation Blorp Esette), the intense
collage piece “Kamikaze Lady” from the pre-Residents
1971 Baby Sex tapes, and the RAO Studio Orchestra version
of “Ups & Downs” (which may be the group’s finest
pop moment).
The second LP features many insider favorites that have
not been available on vinyl for decades: “Loser = Weed”
(initially released as the B-side to the Satisfaction single),
“Death in Barstow” and “Melon Collie Lassie” (from the
Babyfingers EP), as well as The Residents’ contributions to
the great Subterranean Modern compilation.
Balancing the group’s conceptual impulses with a dark
palette of electro-esotericism, Residue of The Residents is
an intoxicating collection that serves as an ideal starting
point for the uninitiated.
