The Residents – Whoopy Snorp

‘Whoopy Snorp’ was a track that originally surfaced on a 1977 compilation put together by LAFMS called ‘Blorp Esette Volume 1’; with cover art by Don Van Vliet no less. This is classic ‘Fingerprince/Babyfingers’ era Residents (each album was a milestone during their first 10 years that one has to link styles of tracks to whatever LP was being produced at the time). The bands trusty 70’s drum machine acts as a carrier for ridiculous trumpet bursts and spoken word from what appears to be someone other than the singing Resident (that happened more often in the early days). A truly classic track that later resurfaced on the album ‘Residue’.
