Throughout their 40+ year history, The Residents have always cloaked their lives and music in obscurity. The band members,always shown asbeing
four in number, refuse to grant interviews, and do not identify themselves by name or even individualpseudonyms. Concerts andphotoshoots are
always performed in full disguise, most recognizably in white-tie tuxedos,top hatsand giant eyeball masks. Active since theirformation in 1969, The
Residents have released countless-upon-countless albums,most of which follow a strange theme.
