Residents - Baby Sex (1971)


While The Residents are known to be incredibly embarrassed by their early works (and strive to keep them unreleased in their original form) they may be reasonably proud of Baby Sex, as several tracks from this have appeared on compilations. It was also broadcast in its entirety on a radio station in Oregon during a Residents Radio Festival in 1977.

The second half of the album is a studio collage which includes portions of The Residents' impromptu live performance at San Francisco's Boarding House in October 1971. Assisted by Snakefinger and N. Senada they staged a "terrorist attack" on the club, performing for thirty minutes. The album also features a cover of Frank Zappa's "King Kong".

Entirely grateful for this. After downloading the bit of kit to open a 'rar' file (no computer maven), and stuff to convert MP3 into WMA, I'm actually listening to the burnt CD at this second. ACE!

Many thanks. Download or die!
