Previously unreleased, legendary pre-Residents album, an accompaniment to RSD 2018’s successful W***** B*** Album. A must for REsidents fans and collectors, who have long called for its official release. Remastered from the original tapes. Artwork features original unseen imagery and artefacts from The Residents’ archive. Produced in partnership with The Residents and The Cryptic Corporation. Recorded in 1971 in the hope of securing the group a recording contract, and sent to Warner Bros Records in early 1972, BS has become a cornerstone of The Residents’ mythology. Rejected by Warner Bros Records, the album was disowned by the group and remained long-forgotten until its recent rediscovery as part of their ongoing archival excavations. Two must-hear sides of deep fried experimentia, post-lysergic explorations, primitive home recordings and Residential nonsense.
Essential listening for any fan of The Residents, underground and experimental music of the 1970s, home recording or the downright ridiculous. This is carefree, boundary free and unruly music at its best, as produced by a collective of no discernible talent who, despite all indications and expectations, have endured for almost half a century. Legendary… Seminal… Genius… all or none of these words may apply.
