REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPES AND PRODUCED WITH THE RESIDENTS AND THE CRYPTIC CORPORATION. ESSAY BY JIM KNIPFEL AND SLEEVENOTES BY THE RESIDENTS’ MYSTERIOUS ARCHIVIST.

Formed in the early 1970s, The Residents have been charting a unique path through the musical landscape for almost fifty years. From far-out, experimental recordings to highly conceptual, innovative multi-platform projects, the band refuses to stand still, and continues to move in several different directions at once. Produced with The Cryptic Corporation using archival tapes supplied by the group themselves, this package explores and expands the classic 1994 album – another series of character studies, as first explored on the Freak Show project – alongside the contemporary “Hunters” OST recording, an instrumental suite composed to accompany the 1995 TV show of the same name. Disc Two also includes, in full, the previously unreleased “Fat Boy” tape, a collection of material compiled by the group in early 1994 and either adapted and incorporated into “Gingerbread Man” and “Hunters” or quickly forgotten… until now. Remastered, expanded, packed with previously unheard music and pREServed for future generations.
