Nice beat, but I can't dance to it.

You just described my musical sweet spot, subby.

"I had nothing to do with this."

And YES, you read that in his voice, didn't you?

It's a bit subtle, don't you think?

That made my night. Probably not my roommates night. Random Residents Wednesday is on.

They were at their best in the 70's. But they keep it weird

I'll go with The Commercial Album 1981(?)

The Act of Being Polite is the best song.

Not a bad tune, but A Simple Song is what I first think of whenever The Residents are mentioned. One of the strangest videos I have ever seen.

For me every song has something brilliant. If pressed -my second wife or my work is so behind may be my favourites.

The version of ups and downs on resideux is something else  too.

I think of their CD-ROM games from the '90s. Those were quite strange. Quite good as well.

Listening to other tracks I swear to Fark some folks from Negativland are involved.

/ I have one of those ears with voices -- instant recognition.
// Hmmm ... I am drinking Pepsi ...

Many thanks Subbs, you gave me a new jam. I'm a wackadoo that likes all things odd from Zappa to Negativland to whateverthefark I made once ( The Naughty Pig Song and no I am not linking it ).

/ It was a weird day.

That video had everything: dead bodies (babies?) raining down, a singing Trump Coronavirus, all topped off with a fiery 666at the end.

I saw them open for Gary Numan in Houston in the '80s.  I remember being weirded out, but nothing else about theie set ... apart from the one non-eyeball mask.

Yay 17 years & 2 months exactly for my 50th greenlight.

I'm so honored that so many of you in this tread I already have favorited as open minded people.

This thread sent me down a rabbit hole. Insomnia and The Residents are made for each other.

That era was definately their peak, but they've had a few notable releases since then.
