Nurse With Wound List

This is a rarities collection of the Residents' work, and most interesting to me is the 1971 material, which I had previously heard on the Residents Radio Special, but didn't own until now as I wasn't a member of UWEB. Highly recommended for fans who don't already have this material.

"Daydream B-Liver was released by The Residents' Fan Club UWEB in 1991. It's an assortment of music from the years 1971 to 1991. The oldest material is a recording of a live show at The Boarding House in '71....

"The Residents were in Europe touring their ICKY FLIX show when the bombing of the World Trade center took place September 11, 2001. Stunned, The Residents had no choice but to continue the tour as planes all over the world were grounded. Their only release came in the form of writing a new album on those long hours on the bus and in hotel rooms between shows. The album was one of loss and of helplessness. Sad weariness with the follies of human nature. This melancholy has always been present in...

Just like all things Residential, this live DVD takes a much different perspective than most performance video. The footage was sot onstqage during the US tour by a black figure who roamed the stage...as a result, the cameraman was able to interact wit...

"Over the years, The Residents have been so prolific that it's easy to see that a year could have simply vanished and gone unnoticed. And one did - 1997! In the early to mid 90's, The Residents were quite active in the creation of CD-ROMs, releasing Freak Show, The Ginger Bread Man, and Bad Day on the Midway from 1992-95. So much time was devoted to writing and designing the CD-Roms that, other than some soundtrack music for the game and a short side project, Pollex Christi, no music was recorded in 1996...

"Originally released as a 12" single in 1980 based on "The Eskimo", this collectors edition includes 3 bonus tracks. Pressed on translucent yellow vinyl. New 12" 45 RPM EP reissue. All sounds heard on Goosebump were originated on toy instruments which were provided by Toys-R-Us, Inc. - Drawing of The Residents by Jad Fair of Half Japanese"

"Between June 1999 and May 2000 Ralph America posted several Residents MP3s on their website. Shortly afterwards, these exclusive pieces were collected on a limited edition CD entitled Dot.Com. Klanggalerie are proud to present you an updated version of this album, remastered and with new artwork by Pore Know Graphics.
In 2013, a new sub label of Ralph was started, Radio Thoreau, on the official Residents website. Radio Thoreau presented a collection of recent Residents tunes "fixed" by Charles...

Originally released / conceived of as two EPs, Duck Stab is both the group's most 'commercial release' (selling tens and tens of thousands upon release) and also one of their very best. The Residents are so ubiquitous in 'out music land' that it's hard to remember how great their early albums are.
Using very primitive equipment and a lot of imagination, "The Residents" created an idiosyncratic sound world that was both imaginative and very obviously theirs and theirs alone. This has tons of never...

Originally released as a 7" EP in 1977, which somehow managed to make their extremely radical sound somehow palatable to the new-wave masses, while not giving an inch in terms of creativity and weirdness, this found a huge following and sales success...

"The most rewarding, the most difficult, and the most accomplished of all the Residents' albums, this was their departure into the field of imaginary ethno-musicography that they had begun on "Six Things to a Cycle" on Fingerprince. Ostensibly a...

"North of Greenland, well within the Arctic Circle, and on the floating ice continent surrounding the North Pole, lived a nomadic tribe of Mongolian descendants known as the Eskimo.
Their culture was passed down through generations in the form of adventurous tales and ceremonial music. This album attempts to recreate not only the Eskimo ceremonial music, but also a living context for its existence, in the form of Eskimo stories.
Although on the disc, the stories are told purely with sound, a...

“To celebrate the 40th anniversary of 'Eskimo' The Residents present a unique collection of the album's constituent parts, and encourage their public to remix and rework the album.
Including over seventy individual musical elements, chants, loops and sound effects recorded on location by the group in the mid-late 1970s, plus a backing CD of Arctic wind noise, this remarkable set provides unprecedented insight into the three years' recording and construction of a legendary album, and an opportunity...

“The Eyeful series of online releases was active from 25th August 2011 to 26h August 2012. It was called "a Bog benefit", with the Bog being The Residents' blog and chat group. Each download cost 79c when originally issued. So far, this series has never been collected and released on a CD. Now, for the first time ever, we present you The Residents' Eyeful as an album. Liner notes by Brian Poole of Renaldo & The Loaf.”

The Resident's fourth album is one of their very finest, imo. They've gotten a bit of experience under their belts, so the recording quality is better than the earlier albums, but the ideas are just as great as all of their earliest stuff (and with the...

One of their very best. The Residents are so ubiquitous in 'out music land' that it's hard to remember how great their early albums are. And this, their third released album recorded in 1976-77 is very great.
Using very primitive equipment and a lot of imagination, "The Residents" created an idiosyncratic sound world that was both imaginative and very obviously theirs and theirs alone. This has tons of never heard and rare stuff. Highly recommended.

"THE GINGERBREAD MAN is the story or, maybe more accurately, one of the many journeys of an entity that visits the minds of human beings, and spies upon their thoughts. In the center of these personalities, the Gingerbread Man finds each person's individual "brain song," an infectious piece of pop music that floats around in their mind. The Gingerbread Man recognizes this "brain song" as a human's unconscious attempt at creating order in the quagmire of chaos constantly confusing its mental condition...

"God in Three Persons is a tremendously complex project--a Residents novel in its symbolic depth. The album explores the relationship between a pair of androgynous Siamese twins and the cowboy who loves them. The narrative tells the story of the...

“Produced with The Cryptic Corporation using archival tapes supplied by the group themselves, this package explores and expands the classic 1988 album, which saw The Residents work for the first time in an extended narrative form, enabled by the advent of the CD in the mid-late 1980s.
'God In Three Persons' explores the obsessive, toxic but ultimately loving relationship between the narrator, Mr. X, and a pair of conjoined twins - this set includes full lyrics, previously unheard demos, live...

"The Residents, long known as the world's most mysterious and reclusive band, announce a new chapter in their lengthy and legendary career - not just a new album but a completely new concept: I AM A RESIDENT!. After inviting fans to record cover versions of their songs via PledgeMusic, the group have reworked that material into the ultimate Residents mashup, editing, looping and over-dubbing to create something entirely new. Hear The Residents reinterpret their fans' interpretations, creating layer upon...

"The Residents' soundtrack to a never completed CD ROM game. The 1990s saw The Residents release a series of groundbreaking CD-ROMs. Freak Show was followed up by interactive album Gingerbread Man and then role playing game Bad Day On The Midway. All of these stood head and shoulders above the drivel which increasingly clogged the CD-ROM market and all featured Residential music as an integral part.
I Murdered Mommy would have been no exception. Inscape, the company which had released Bad Day, had...

Available again and at a lower price, this is the only Residents DVD that anyone other than a hard-core fan need ever own (unless they suddenly turn around 25 years of decay and become great again). This collects most of (& ALL the best of) The Residen...

“In Between Dreams is a brand new live album recorded on THE RESIDENTS' most recent tour, which focuses on dreamlike material from their vast catalog plus a sneak peek at some brand new songs for an upcoming studio album.
The artwork for the album was created by Resident's collaborator STOTT HOWARD, and portrays a surreal Residents themed fantasy world...The digipack CD version comes packaged in a 12" tall, full-colored, 1990 style longbox. Recorded in San Francisco by GABRIEL SHEPARD and mixed...

“Luxuriously packaged in a hardback book format, complete with track by track contextual prose and lyrics.
Shifting from the physical world of train wrecks to the metaphysical realm of imaginary beings, The Residents present 'Intruders', their new studio album. Inspired by the persistence of obsession, 'Intruders' are seen as alternate beings stalking the corners of our consciousness.
The album's original songs all pivot around the unseen and the uncontrollable spirits stuck in the seams of our..

"The 13th Anniversary Show was The Residents' second tour. It started in 1986 and took them to America, Europe, Japan and Australia - this recording is from Minneapolis, USA.

Guitar player and band mate Snakefinger had become a regular...

"The normal business cycle calls for a band to record an album, then to tour in support of it. But The Residents liked the idea of developing a touring show without the restriction of promoting an album. But after forty or so performances...

"Holding up the underground since 1972, The Residents celebrate four decades of unbridled creativity with "The Wonder of Weird," their 40th anniversary tour. This album, "Marching to the See," collects the musical highlights from that tour. Having...

The group's earliest release and one of their most inventive. Primitive as hell and also inventive as hell! Highly recommended if you don't already have this!

“Realising a career-long ambition, The Residents finally explore The Blues! Having been turned on to the music of lost bluesman Alvin Snow, aka Dyin' Dog, the group presents their interpretations of all ten of Snow's known recordings, alongside several new compositions inspired by his work.
Fans will be familiar with The Residents love of cover versions and imposing themselves on the material of countless seminal artists. 'Metal, Meat & Bone' sees the group take that approach a step further, having...

"Music originally written for the performance MUSH-ROOM (2013) by Grace Ellen Barkey & Needcompany (a Belgian theatre/dance company). The Residents inspire movement with a mix of percussion and electronics that marries classical sensibilities with...

One of the group's early, quite brilliant and inventive early classics. Highly recommended if you don't already have this! And now with an extra 7 minutes.

Recorded in 1974, originally released in 1979 and now reissued with seven minutes of...

One of the group's early (their second), quite brilliant and inventive early classics. Highly recommended, and now it’s the entire story here!

“While there are a million stories about The Residents, one of the more intriguing concerns the recording of their second LP, Not Available. Early in the career of the band, the "theory of obscurity" was introduced to them by the German avant-guardist, N. Senada.
The plan called for the creation of complete projects that were literally not intended...

"Back in 1992, when group was only 20 years old, The Residents were searching for a way to celebrate their birthday. A Greatest Hits album was suggested, after a moment of brainstorming, they opted for mash-ups, an idea they had invented with...

“The Residents are an American art collective best known for their over 60 studio albums that were recorded over a period of over forty years. They also created some outstanding multimedia works, mainly three CD ROM projects and ten DVDs.
Working as an anonymous collective, their identitites were kept secret until in 2017 Hardy Fox revealed himself as their primary composer. Hardy died in October 2018, but the group continue to record and perform.
The PAL TV LP was an obscure release. It....

The Cryptic Corporation presents The Residents live in Wormwood Bonn, Germany, July 16, 1999 with guests Molly Harvey, Nolan Cook, Toby Dammit, Carla Fabrizio. This 105-minute performance was taken from a Web Cast for Museumsmeile.

This is very interesting, as it is the most complete set of recordings that you can buy (now or ever!) of the pre “Meet The Residents” recordings by the group.
There is a lot of interesting stuff here and it also shows you that, somehow, between these earlier recordings and the recording of “Meet The Residents”, they made a huge leap in what they were able to accomplish on their recordings.

“Before The Residents became the Residents, they were a group of friends from the San Francisco bay....

“A collection of 18 versions of The Residents' Christmas smash hit Santa Dog.
The compilation album Refused was originally released by the band's own Ralph America label in 1999 and collected 11 versions of the track "Santa Dog".
For our 2019 Christmas re-issue, we have collected a total of 18 variations and have adapted the original artwork.”

"The Residents are fiddlers. Not fiddle players, just fiddlers. They like to play around and see different ways their songs could sound.
They call this RMX. Some say RMX stands for "remix" but with The Residents, who knows? While the RMX concept is mostly associated with two album projects (The King and Eye RMX and WB:RMX), The Residents had also tinkered with individual songs. These were released as free streaming tracks on the band's official MySpace page (yes, they had one).
In 2007 most of..

"Performing as the World's Best Residents' Cover Band, Randy, Chuck & Bob celebrated their 40th anniversary with a trilogy of tours: Talking Light, Wonder of Weird and Shadowland. Imitating a band no more, they unexpectedly morphed into a power trio...

"The Residents met Philip Lithman in 1969. They became immediate friends and began playing music together. Snakefinger participated in many Residents projects with 1986 being a particularly good year for their working together. Plans were made to tour...

"Strange Culture (OST): In 2007, Director/artist Lynn Hershman-Leeson heard of a strange situation of an artist being arrested as a bioterrorist due to the fact that his "art" used harmless mold. She gathered a number of friends to make a film to bring more attention to the artist's plight. Among the friends were Tilda Swinton and The Residents who had worked with Ms Hershman on her previous film, Conceiving Ada. The Rivers of Hades: An aural art piece, Chaos Is Not Just A Theory, was written by...

"In April 2011 The Residents brought their acclaimed Talking Light tour to Bimbo's 365 Club in San Francisco. The inspiration behind the Talking Light tour is The Residents' fascination with spooky stories. The Residents realized that what they saw as...

"Brumalia was a month-long party the ancient Romans threw at the end of the year. It was a kind of New Years Eve that didn't stop at midnight. Instead, it stopped on December 25th. This went on until 600-700 c.e., it's hard to know exactly...

“Between 1981 and 1985 The Residents embarked on what would become the infamous, ultimately incomplete 'Mole Trilogy'. Intended to tell the story of two colliding cultures - the Moles and the Chubs - via the mediums of narrative storytelling and recreations of the music of those societies, the project took the band into unchartered musical territory, into the concert halls of the USA and Europe for the first time and, legend has it, to the brink of collapse.

"Following their long tradition of projects based on narrative themes, The Residents are pleased to announce the release of The Ghost of Hope, an historically accurate album based on train wrecks. Pursuing this theme in both a literal and metaphorical sense, the group discovered a series of vintage news articles highlighting the dangers of train travel in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Inspired by the era's elegant language, the group then contrasted that eloquence against the sheer horror of...

All instrumental, very cinematic work from the Residents. Nice, gamelan/just intonated sounds and all in all, a very nice one.

"An experimental instrumental solo album from Charles Bobuck, primary composer and arranger for The Residents....

The Residents third album, which was the 1st one I ever saw and bought, when I was in San Francisco in 1977. Many people think it is their best work, as it totally disassembles a number of 60's top 40 hits into barely, barely recognizable form!
This has a ton of extra, unreleased and rare material, including the amazing "The Beatles Play The Residents Play The Beatles" 45, which I've wanted a good recording of since I heard it nearly 40 years ago. AND NOW I DO! Highly recommended!...

"When The Residents begin work on their 2007 opus to insanity, The Voice of Midnight, the group felt the need to shake things up, consequently they created an alter ego through which they could act out new roles. Proudly, The Residents christened this...
