Phychotherapy music from shy old-loonies to bloody "Buy or Die" freaks. We all weirdos love this stuff.

Pop music lacks this sort of adventurers. Stimulating, and very funny, which is elegant.

From haredoug
i feel despondently unqualified to be the first to comment on this band. but no one else has done it. i haven't heard even one tenth of their amazing output, and i daresay 98 out of 100 people have never heard of them much less taken the plunge and listened. but know this: take experimental avante garde electronica mixed with devil worship and wrap it in rock's most notorious case of mass anonymity, and you've got the residents. nobody knows their names, or what their faces look like. four eyeballs in tophats. top that.
