The Residents – God In Three Persons
God in Three Persons is a tremendously complex project–a Residents novel in its symbolic depth. The album explores the relationship between a pair of androgynous Siamese twins and the cowboy who loves them. The narrative tells the story of the cowboy’s exploitation of the twins talents as faith healers, and the furtive sexual dalliances that builds to a spectacular and disturbing climax.
The story combines all the dualities–love and hate, tenderness and violence, heterosexuality and homosexuality, sin and purity, earthiness and transcendence. All these dualities will forever remain separate but inseparable.
In public, the group appears silent and costumed, often wearing eyeball helmets, top hats and tuxedos — a long-lasting costume now recognized as its signature iconography. The group is noted for surrealistic lyrics and sound, disregard for conventional music composition, and the over the top, theatrical spectacle of their live performances.
