Residents - Commercial Album

SKU 21-MVD 6867A
This 1980 album, was, for me, The Residents last great hurrah. The concept was to make 40 songs of exactly ONE MINUTE in length and this is an album of 40 perfect little masterpieces and the band's last truly great album.

Lots of appearances by Fred Frith (he's all over it) as well as guest appearances by Snakefinger, Chris Cutler, Lena Lovich, etc.

"After spending a couple of years creating the 1979 album, Eskimo, The Residents wanted a break from the long form abstract approach. They had written a lot of melody lines and thought it would be fun to use them all instead of selecting a few to develop. Short-attention-span ideas in music was new. Initially people didn't know what to make of it. Now it is recognized as one of their best."
