Title: Residue of the Residents
Format: Double LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"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 first-time vinyl reissue has been expanded to a double LP and contains 26 songs from the late 70s and early 80s?the groups 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 groups 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 groups 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." - Superior Viaduct.

Title: Santa Dog
Format: Double 7
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Welcome to the wild, bizarro world of the experimental artists The Residents. Little is known about the groups origins or its members identities, although it is widely believed that they are based out of San Francisco, California. When their debut release, Santa Dog, first appeared in 1972 on the equally enigmatic Ralph Records / Cryptic Corporation, the few hundred copies quickly fell on deaf ears and blind eyes. Rumor has it that then-President Richard Nixon sent his record back. True to their Theory of Obscurity concept, The Residents cultivate mystery to ensure artistic integrity. With different musical personas for each of its four tracks, Santa Dog is a fully-formed avant-garde pastiche of musique concrète, Raymond Scott-esque exotica, television sound effects and the groups own mutilated take on rock n roll that later became their trademark aesthetic. Superior Viaduct is honored to present the first-time vinyl reissue of Santa Dog, complete with Christmas-themed fold-out sleeve. The package is an essential artifact for devout fans and beginners--a puzzle wrapped in a piece of commercial music. Or perhaps it is the other way around?" - Superior Viaduct.
