The Residents – The Electrocutioner

The closing track from what would have been the ‘Buster & Glen’ 7″ EP* starts off frenetically; with guest vocalist ‘Ruby’ singing about “throwing switches” and electrocuting people. The Residents start chanting “she is the Electrocutioner” whilst Snakefinger wails all over the tune. The second half of the song is like an eastern European waltz that Ruby softly sings along to. Classic stuff from 1978.

*The EP became the second side of the ‘Duck Stab’ LP, which consisted of the previously released ‘Duck Stab’ EP, along with this never released EP.
