• THE SIXTH IN A SERIES OF VINYL RE-ISSUES OF THE RESIDENTS' CLASSIC '70S ALBUMS.

Formed in the early 1970s, The Residents have now been charting a unique path through the musical landscape for 50 years. In celebration of that remarkable and unlikely anniversary, we present an expanded vinyl edition of the classic 1979 album 'Eskimo'.

Perhaps their best-known album - certainly the one which introduced the classic eyeball head image - 'Eskimo' saw The Residents explore the myths, legends and music of the native tribes of the northern American coastline and tundra. Released following several years of the group travelling into the Arctic to make field recordings, record with (and learn from) the natives and soak up as much of that atmosphere as they could cram into their suitcases, the album and its mythology (not least the long delay preceding its release) cemented The Residents' reputation as the weird anonymous band with eyeballs on their heads it was OK to like (long before everybody was doing it).

Presented here with an accompanying RDX mix produced by the group using the album's original multitrack tapes, this 2LP edition both celebrates the original LP and, through an extensive new essay by the group's mysterious archivist, sheds new light on its production. A must for fans and collectors, and perhaps a first-time opportunity for anybody who's been waiting over 40 years to finally give it a listen.

'Eskimo' is the latest in The Residents' extensive ongoing pREServed series - expect more throughout 2023 and 2024. Possibly even 2025 too, the way things are going.
