Playlist for 9-24-10, with a healthy dose of Residents

Odds are, if you've heard my radio program once, you've probably heard The Residents. They're pretty much the only group I've played consistently for the year-and-a-half I've been on the air. That doesn't mean I find all their music listenable (something like 50 fucking albums) and that definitely doesn't mean that I don't think some of their stuff is just plain stupid, but during their heyday (probably 75-89) they produced some really sick and twisted music. Just for an example, here's what their album "Not Available" is all about:

"In 1978, the "official" word was that The Residents had stated that Not Available could never be released. The group claimed that they had recorded the album in secrecy as a way of exercising their "theory of obscurity" to its fullest, and, in strict accordance with the theory, the work could never be released until its creators no longer recalled its existence. However, the reissued album's liner notes state that the album was an exercise in group therapy, and the Residents didn't want to release it because they felt it was too personally revealing." - Wikipedia

But, that aside...there was also quite a bit of new stuff on last night's program, so check the podcast.

...and the playlist:
