Album Review

An excellent tribute to the Residents released by California's Vaccination Records, this collection features reworks and covers by artists who stay faithful to the spirit of Residents' pomp and wackiness. It's a who's-who cast of underground, indie, and all-around under-appreciated eclectic artists, such as Only a Mother, Thinking Fellers Union Local 282, Snakefinger, Shakin Ray Levis, Splatter Trio, Idiot Flesh, and Amy Denio, as well as the not-at-all-underground rock bands Cracker and Primus. Fans of the Residents, and irreverent music in general, will definitely enjoy this entertaining and varied set of loving renditions.
