Listening

Got the new/old album WB:RMX by the Residents today. On first listen, it’s extraordinary. The legendary Warner Brothers Album (which had nothing to do with Warner Brothers) has been a fixture in the Residents history/mythology for over 30 years: it was recorded, sent out to lots of record companies, all of whom rejected it, and the tapes were then set on a shelf and never released, until now. WB:RMX is a 2004-style remix of this 1971 recording, and it hits the best of both the early Residents strengths and the late Residents strengths. I’m very impressed.
