The Residents – Eat Exuding Oinks! Ralph Records’ 1977 Radio Special

Here is the 2001 reissue of the 1977 Radio Special that Ralph Records engaged in to celebrate their 5th anniversary. The team took the show to RAO Studios in Houston, Texas, where it was aired by the Radio stations host Sid Powell. Powell clearly doesn’t dig the sound from Louisiana’s phenomenal Pop combo, but Ralph/Cryptic Corporation man Jay Clem fields these hostile questions from Powell excellently. Matters discussed among the tunes played are; the theory of phonetic organisation and the originator of the idea, the mysterious N. Senada; the connection between the Beatles and the Residents, and the rumour that they are both one and the same (a hot topic in 1977); and the band’s work-in-progress ‘Eskimo’. The tracklisting for the songs played is below.
