Release Date: 11/04/22

One-off project by US cult band The Residents. A one man cabaret performance of popular hits of the 20th century.

The Residents are an American art collective best known for their over 60 studio albums that were recorded over a period of over forty years. They also created some outstanding multimedia works, mainly three CD ROM projects and ten DVDs. Working as an anonymous collective, their identitites were kept secret until in 2017 Hardy Fox revealed himself as their primary composer. Hardy died in October 2018, but the group continue to record and perform. So Long Sam (1945-2006) was a one-off performance by The Residents, held at Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive on June 4th 2010. It was a work-in-progress version of lead singer Randy Rose's one-man cabaret performance Sam's Enchanted Evening, which Rose performed solo between October 2011 and March 2012. So Long Sam featured re-interpretations of popular hits from the mid-20th century, and told the story of Sam (personified by Rose) and his troubles with romance, his unhealthy sex addiction, and his questions about his sexuality. During the performance Rose and The Residents were accompanied by a small string orchestra. An EP of the same name credited to The Residents, featuring four songs recorded during the June 4th show, was released later that month on the group's Robot Selling Device. The rest has never been made available. Klanggaleri are proud to finally present you the full concert, plus an extra full of demos recorded for the show.
