i drank white russians a lot in my late teens. they started to clog up my throat more and more until it wasn't fun any more. switched to black russians. switched to rum & cokes. rum & ginger. whiskey and ginger.
eventually i got over the liquor tasting like candy thing.

WR i confess though -though i do drink whiskey neat or with ice, i often do mix it with lemon-ginger-echinacea juice; but the ration is almost 2-1: twice as much liquor as juice.

Agree with YOU TDK60, doesnt sound punk regarding style but the cultural context may put them in that category.

RevRab! I was thinking the same thing -- holy shit they've persisted

I barely knew anything about them until I was finally dragged to one of their concerts. I liked it! That must have been around 2011 or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/27/19 9:30pm chresti:

Theatrical, top notch production
  Wed. 11/27/19 9:30pm Dean:

I learned about the Residents courtesy of Back Door Man's review of Fingerprince c. 1976 or '77. Been an occasional fan ever since. Eskimo is a masterpiece, for sure.

Dean!

Their work is sprawling and hard to navigate for the beginner
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 11/27/19 9:31pm TDK60:

I have a friend who worked for the Residents organization once. Wonder if the office ever got strange.
  Wed. 11/27/19 9:31pm Dean:

Saw them at the Roxy for the Mole Show and then again in Berkeley at the old art museum. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Fred Frith is on the Commercial Album.

...hard enuff to get four schmucks to show up Wed. for practice - but we're gonna wear eyeballs...let us praise those with Ideas. I think they empowered people to go DAdA...

Dean, he may be. I think Snakefinger was on Fingerprince

Larry!

Pretty sure I still have Snakefinger's "The Spot" 7" on blue vinyl.

this actually /does/ have Hit potential.

That American Composers series...genius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/27/19 9:37pm Gary:

There was a brief period of time when I listened to this album and the Tape Beatles religiously
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/27/19 9:38pm ParUbi:

I like the Tape Beatles, they're great! I practically burned through my copy of the Grand Delusion.

i know it's obvious but this is my favorite version of good lovin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/27/19 9:39pm Gary:

It's only obvious because IT'S SO GOOD
  Wed. 11/27/19 9:39pm Dean:

I have a hand-numbered Residents Play the Beatles, Beatles Play the Residents EP. I treasure it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/27/19 9:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They intimidated me way back then - I wasn't sure I was in on the joke... Now there's Negativeland & Vicki Bennett & Church of SubGenius (which took me ages to pick up on) & Nat Roe & Nordox Sidetower - & dADaists falling from the trees...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/27/19 9:43pm Gary:

I think I immediately loved them because I thought of them in similar terms as the Firesign Theater, like they were the musical version of FT, and I really really really loved FT back then
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/27/19 9:44pm Gary:

Also, THE MASHUP HERE! THEY INVENTED THE MASHUP?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/27/19 9:44pm ParUbi:

The Church of the Subgenius I got into fairly early on, thanks to that one book being next to the the D&D books in the mall bookstore.
Avatar Wed. 11/27/19 9:44pm Franco Twinkie:

Like a lot of people I saw Meet The Residents when it came out and was amused by the cover but made the mistake of not buying it. I mean, it was in my hand!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 11/27/19 9:45pm chresti:

It's a medley mashup
  Wed. 11/27/19 9:47pm Dean:

Ha! Was talking with somebody just yesterday about FT.

By FT, I mean Firesign Theater, not Franco Twinkie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/27/19 9:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Loved FT - & there had obvsly been Zappa - & Fugs...
I think with Walrus & Rev9 The Beatles themselves went there...there was always Novelty trax...
Avatar Wed. 11/27/19 9:50pm Franco Twinkie:

Gary, I too loved The Firesign Theater. Around 1969 my father called me into the living room, took off the headphones, handed them to me and said "Here, I think you'll like this." At the time they had a regular show on KPFK.
  Wed. 11/27/19 9:50pm Dean:

Bergman used to have a morning radio show in LA on KPFK when I was traversing that goddamn mess of city during the '80s. Every show opened with a different version of "It Ain't Necessarily So."

i think firesign theater, the residents and negativland all were introduced to me by wfmu in the 1980s; church of the subgenius in the 90s, i think...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/27/19 9:52pm coelacanth∅))):

unless i'm hallucinating, the church of the subgenius was represented by an hour-long show on wfmu for a while
Avatar Wed. 11/27/19 9:53pm Franco Twinkie:

A friend of mine is still there art director. I mean, what's left of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/27/19 9:54pm Gary:

Whoa, that's awesome, FT
  Wed. 11/27/19 9:54pm App ParUbi:

Also: Illuminatus Trilogy! Thanks B Daltons (or was it Waldenbooks?)!
Avatar Wed. 11/27/19 9:55pm northguineahills:

I found a Negativeland cassette in a thrift store when I started college in the mid-90s, and was immediately hooked.
The residents took a lot longer for me to appreciate....

Oh, and, thanks, Gary, have merriment tomorrow!
  Wed. 11/27/19 9:55pm Dean:

Franco, do you know Glen Banks?

My wife appreciated the residents set. First time I've played a show on WFMU with music she knows better than I do.
