Residents - Third Reich 'n' Roll (remastered)
The Residents third album, which was the 1st one I bought, when I was in San Francisco in 1977. Many people think it is their best work, as it totally disassembles a number of 60s top 40 hits into barely recognizable form. Classic cover image!
"The Residents released their third album, "The Third Reich 'n' Roll" in 1976. People have speculated whether The Residents were hinting that Rock 'n' Roll has brain-washed the youth of the world. When confronted with this possibility, they replied, "Well, it may be true or it may not, but we just wanted to kick out the jams and get it on." Third Reich 'n' Roll consists of two suites, "Swastikas on Parade" and "Hitler was a Vegetarian." Both are semi-phonetic interpretations of top forty hits from the sixties. "Our roots", say The Residents, a bright orange carrot clutched lovingly in their hands."
