Tra le mille sorprendenti iniziative in atto nell'ambito di un nuovo piano di avvicinamento tra musicisti (o altro) e pubblico, The Residents hanno offerto il mese scorso tramite Cherry Red Records qualche copia dell'antologico 80 Aching Orphans da loro stessi autografata. I nomi sono quelli di Rez 1, A. Resident, R3 e R. Whatever.

Extended 4CD anthology set chronicling the career of the legendary San Francisco experimentalists and curated with the band themselves, from the debut 1972 single to the band’s most recent album, The Ghost Of Hope. Singles, fan favourites, album highlights, live recordings and material never before available on CD. Detailed track-by-track sleevenotes, new imagery produced exclusively for this collection and an introduction from Homer Flynn of The Cryptic Corporation. 80 tracks across 4CDs, presented in hardback book package. Includes Santa Dog, Satisfaction, Constantinople, Diskomo, It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World, Hit The Road Jack, Don’t Be Cruel, Hello Skinny, Smelly Tongues, Jello Jack, Kaw-Liga, Rushing Like A Banshee, plus material from numerous classic albums. An ideal introduction for the curious, and a fresh perspective for the band’s dedicated fanbase.
