Throughout the group's existence, the individual members have ostensibly attempted to work anonymously, preferring to have attention focused on their art. Much speculation and rumor has focused on this aspect of the group. In public, they appear silent and costumed, often wearing eyeball helmets, top hats and tails—a costume now recognized as their signature iconography. In 2017, Hardy Fox, long known to be associated with THE RESIDENTS, identified himself as the band's co-founder and primary composer; he died in 2018.
THE RESIDENTS' albums generally fall into two categories: deconstructions of Western popular music, and complex conceptual pieces composed around a theme, theory or plot. The group is noted for surrealistic lyrics and sound, with a disregard for conventional music composition.
Today's tune and the first single "Die!, Die!, Die!" out of "Metal, Meat & Bone – The Songs Of Dyin’ Dog", featuring Black Francis from the PIXIES.
