Look Out My Window And Spy The Residents

The kings of weird are back. Not that they ever went away. Here we find our eyeball-headed friends performing music they developed over 40 dates on tour – the reverse of the traditional route of releasing an album and then touring to promote it. It’s listed as “Alternative, Rock” in the retail world, which made me cackle. 30 years or more into their run, The Residents still earn, more than anyone, the coveted genre classification of “Other.”

Meeting The Residents Again

Practicing their unique brand of sonic warfare for over three decades, The Residents are the kings of weird. Their costumes alone make me a fan, and their top-secret identities make them the ultimate anti-pop heroes. Just found their infamous Meet The Residents album online. Here is the single.
