The Residents – Our Finest Flowers

Reissue of The Residents’ 1992 album celebrating the group’s 20th birthday
 
Contains a combination of melodies and lyrics from their past songs, re-mashed to create new and intriguing tunes which form into a collection of their greatest hits
 
Our Finest Flowers is a completely fresh and original sounding collection

Over the course of a recording career spanning several decades, the Residents remained a riddle of Sphinx-like proportions; cloaking their lives and music in a haze of wilful obscurity, the band’s members never identified themselves by name, always appearing in public in disguise — usually tuxedos, top hats and giant eyeball masks — and refusing to grant media interviews.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of fellow innovators including Harry Partch, Sun Ra and Captain Beefheart, the Residents channelled the breadth of American music into their idiosyncratic, satiric vision, their mercurial blend of electronics, distortion, avant-jazz, classical symphonies and gratingly nasal vocals reinterpreting everyone from John Philip Sousa to James Brown while simultaneously expanding the boundaries of theatrical performance and multimedia interaction.
