hi. I just got back home from Brussels. (march 8 2003)
I went to a concert of the Residents.
The Demons dance alone tour was my first tour ever to see them live.
I'm glad I went to that gig.

Hello everybody, who like The Residents!
I think the music of Residents can be compared to the philosophy of Aristoteles...they donīt need any musters, any influences and their philosophy is totally original...totally complex - as for presentation, photos, design, dress, music especially, poetry and voice and everything. That is my opinion... I saw "their" Freak Show in Prague, but I was very disappointed by that fact, that they refused to play and their music was played by "big beat" bad group "Uz jsme doma", Czech...so it lost many, many percents...but Laurie Amat was present, so at least somebody...

I saw them on the Demons Dance Alone Tour as well, in Chicago. Great show, 2nd time I'd seen them (before was when Icky Flix came out). I think Demons is perhaps my favorite work of theirs to date. What do you other peeps think of it?

Has anyone realised that The Residents can go on forever, ad infinitum? See, if any of them dies off, it can be kept quiet, & they can be replaced without any of us knowing the difference. They're all anonymous, we don't know their identities, they wear disguises. Each one can be replaced fairly easily. Ingenious really.

It is amazing how modern R&B and rap incorporate bits and pieces of The Residents. The Residents were mistaken when in the '70's, they said they were making 90's musc in the '70's. They were really making '00's music in the '70's.

Maybe the stance/approach of complete anonymity hinders them, but they deserve to be better known & better appreciated.

If The Residents had ever become really, really, truly famous, do you think one or more of them would have broke cover, revealed themself, in order to milk more glory & adulation?

What's going to happen when one of The Residents' musicians eventually dies? How is the priest at the funeral or whomever going to explain away what he (or she?) did for the past decades without blowing their cover?

>>By nonyeb   (Wednesday, 17 Oct 2007 01:22)



Since The Residents have been operating over 30yrs, one could expect there to have been a change or two in personnel over that time.
My theory about those who have left is that they're paid-off by the remaining band to keep schtumm.

>>By nonyeb   (Wednesday, 17 Oct 2007 05:01)



My guess is fhat the Residents has the same members since the band was formed over 30 years ago.

>>By headrush77   (Sunday, 28 Oct 2007 02:59)



Ironically, guest members have died, as in the case of Phil 'Snakefinger' Lithman. Did The Residents attend the funeral under disguise & cover, one wonders.

In 1978, 1980 and 1981, the Rolling Stone magazine advertised Ralph Records' 4 song compilation EP's for $1.00 each. Even in the late '70's and early '80's, that was a very inexpensive price. On each of the 1978 and 1980 EP's, were one song by the Residents. These two songs were the first Residents' songs that I ever herad.

The "Not Available" album was the first Residrnts' LP I owned.

With the death of Snakefinger,The Residents put out an EP of music performed at his wake called, "Snakey Wake".

I attended the Residents only Houston concert, the 13th Anniversary Tour.

Someone in Houston, stole one of ihe eyeball masks.

How relevant are they still, here in 2008?
(Personally I want to see them rename themselves, 'The Relevants'.)
