Residents - Whatever Happened To Vileness Fats?

SKU 21-MVD6427A
"This album has a complex history to it, so pay attention: Before they were even officially a band (early 1972), the members of what shortly became the Residents originally tried to create a motion picture, 14 hours in length and shot on videotape, in their cramped warehouse home, titled Vileness Fats. Needless to say it didn't quite work out as planned, but the footage they shot, of a drama taking place in a land of one-armed midgets, was finished off ten years later, pared down to under an hour and with a new soundtrack (this album) recorded by the band."

"The complete score to the Residents 1972 video feature Vileness Fats. Intended to be the first feature-length music video, the story concerns a love triangle made up of an Indian princess who lives forever and a schizophrenic one-armed midget. After 14 hours of videotape, the Residents abandoned the project for reasons they never made perfectly clear. The 2nd half of this CD (tracks 12-20) is music from the feature film The Census Taker. Originally released in 1984."
