The Residents are one of pop history's best kept secrets; throughout the group's existence, the individual members have ostensibly attempted to operate under anonymity, preferring instead to have attention focused on their art output. Much outside speculation and rumor has focused on this aspect of the group. In public, the group appears silent and costumed, often wearing eyeball helmets, top hats and tails - a long-lasting costume now recognized as its signature iconography.

After Eskimo was released The Residents responded to the furor of fuss and praise it generated by taking various bits out of the album and re-working them to a disco parody of the original, this created Diskomo.

The Residents had long planned to produce a children's record -- of sorts. Goosebump is a collection of Mother Goose rhymes set to music with all of the ''original sinister overtones'' left in place. They teamed up with their long- time collaborator Snakefinger and recorded the songs using only musical instruments. Although children's toys were used to produce the music, The Residents' grown-up toys were used afterwards in the mixing of the recording.

We try to be as accurate as possible, but we use a service to get images for the vinyl records we sell. Sometimes, this leads to the image showing a special colored vinyl edition of a record when we only have the standard black vinyl version.
