The Residents Concert Review

Christian Hertzog reviews a Residents show that took place earlier this year in San Diego.

There are plenty of innovators in rock, going all the way back to Ike Turner’s Kings of Rhythm, continuing on through with the Beach Boys, the Beatles, the Who, Velvet Underground, and Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention; but can any of these artists claim to have so completely broken down rock and pop music into its molecular components and reassembled them so radically as The Residents?
