The Residents – Weight Lifting Lulu

Someone once described Captain Beefheart’s music as ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll from Pluto’. Lovely description, but far more apt for the work of The Residents around the time of their ‘Duck Stab/Buster & Glen’ period (which was 1978); especially on tracks like ‘Elvis & His Boss’, and this one, ‘Weight Lifting Lulu’. Eerie, otherworldy Rockabilly that sounds like it is being played through an ancient transistor tuned into another dimension. ‘Retro’, as imagined by David Lynch.
