The Residents – The Gingerbread Man
The Gingerbread Man explores the personalities of nine characters and their “rather strange outlooks on life”. Each character, according to The Residents, has the Gingerbread Man in them somewhere, represented in the music by the Gingerbread Man theme:
Run, run, as fast as you can You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man…
Each of the songs have the same general format: a 30-second introduction (which usually features the Gingerbread Man theme) followed by a verse sung by the character, and then a mix of comments and thoughts by the character over music which expands on the themes in the verse, given the listener glimpses into the person’s thoughts.
The Residents are an anonymous group of artists based in San Francisco who are primarily known for the creation of experimental music, performance, and video. In slightly more than two decades, they have released over 20 albums of recorded music, toured the United States, Europe, Australia, and Japan with three different performance pieces, and have been credited with the invention of a new art form, the music video. The creative output of the group has steadfastly defied categorization, but has always been marked by a consistent vision that is at once both mysterious and disturbing.
