Snakefinger – Friendly Warning

This is from ‘Chewing Hides The Sound’ (1979); one of Snakefinger’s albums for Ralph Records, which were all co-written with The Residents. His guitar sound was prominent and completely part of some of the faceless fours greatest releases, and meant that Phillip ‘Snakefinger’ Lithman was essentially a Resident himself, so it made sense that they extended that sound with his ‘solo’ releases. This track has some classic Snakey guitar moves on it; both the creepy acoustic thing he does on tracks like ‘The Spot’, and the electric-guitar-becomes-synth he sprayed all over Residents tracks like ‘Elvis & His Boss’ and ‘The Electrocutioner’. Classic stuff.
