Parte dalle misteriose vicende di Alvin Snow - rabbioso bluesman della Louisiana conosciuto come Dyin’ Dog, albino e con gli occhi azzurri - e dal ritrovamento di suoi polverosi nastri incisi a inizio anni Settanta la nuova sfida all'inverosimile firmata Residents: subito la pubblicazione degli, ehm, originali in un fantastico box di cinque singoli in vinile affidata a Psychofon Records, con la promessa a breve di una completa rivisitazione per diretta opera dei Nostri. The Residents present: Alvin Snow aka “Dyin’ Dog”.

While the fate of Alvin Snow, aka Dyin’ Dog, will undoubtedly remain a mystery, the validity of his songs is unchallenged. Consequently The Residents feel compelled to give the lost bluesman’s music the exposure it so obviously deserves. With the support of Psychofon Records, on Sept 28, 2019, The Residents are sponsoring the release of a boxed set containing the long lost Dyin’ Dog Demos. In addition, the band is already hard at work re-creating their own versions of Alvin Snow’s songs for their next album - Metal, Meat & Bone-The Songs of Dyin’ Dog - to be released in February of 2020.
