No, I didn't. My mate went to see them I think in 1998 (?). He's the one that introduced me to their records. In 1998 I was still too busy laughing at their photograph's (above being an example) to actually appreciate the music.

This is an old thread and some of the links are now dead. The picture is dead as well, but here's a video instead. It's a great version of James Brown's "This is a Man's World".

The Residents - Icky Flix Tour - Man's World

Lyrics (James Brown version)

This is a man's world, this is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl

You see, man made the cars to take us over the road
Man made the train to carry the heavy load
Man made electro light to take us out of the dark
Man made the boat for the water, like Noah made the ark

This is a man's, man's, man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl

Man thinks about a little baby girls and a baby boys
Man makes then happy 'cause man makes them toys
And after man made everything, everything he can
You know that man makes money to buy from other man

This is a man's world
But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing, not one little thing, without a woman or a girl

He's lost in the wilderness
He's lost in bitterness

Adding a few more videos to this thread...

The Residents - Diskomo

The Residents - The Golden Goat

The Residents - Third Reich 'n' Roll


This is interesting. A cover version of a Residents song. To compare with the original, I recommend the Residents' version on "Kettles of fish...". And while you've got "Kettles of fish...", also check out the awesome version of "Forty-Four...". Here's Singing Lawn Chairs' version of Jelly Jack:

I like the Residents, but I am not well versed in their music. They did the jingle for Pee Wees Playhouse, and some other shows. I am a huge Primus fan though. Les Claypool give cred to the Residents as the inspiration for the way he sings.

my brother in law is a big residents fan.

pretty much all I got to say on the subject. I like the music and all. It's a good band. Um lemme see (this space for rent) pretty good band I have to say but I wouldnt call myself a huge fan.

Though my brother in law likes em an awefull lot. He also likes King Crimson too.

Geeze, bringing back the good ole' times eh Helmutt?

I guess I can't say I am a "current fan" but The Residents were one of my building blocks in my musical youth. Somehow, back when, our local cable access channel had the best "video" show and played The Residents along with another band I have an album of, Ronaldo and the Loaf - the album is Songs for the Swinging Larvae - outright from Mars. Always enjoyable to see the mix of mediums and they will forever be iconic due to the "eye heads". Others played that were not popular here: Art of Noise/Devo/Ultravox/Kraftwerk/ - none nearly as bizzare as The Residents. Just my two cents.


Edit to add: Saw Snakefinger vid you posted and this was in the rotation too...awesome! Thanks.
