Early 1997, The Residents released "Pollex Christi".
Or as our Eyeballed Friends described it: The Residents Perform N.Senada's "Pollex Christi", N.Senada being one of the mysterious Residents' collaborators.
At this point, it might be interesting to add that Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band recorded "Trout Mask Replica" in a house in Ensenada Drive...
I'm not saying that N.Senada was Don Van Vliet. I just think that it's a nice reference to an obrious influence.

'Pollex Christi" got released in a limited, numbered edition of 400 copies. It sold out immediately.
May 1997, The Residents released a second batch of 400 copies of "Pollex Christi". Unnumbered this time, and with a slightly altered cover.

An abridged version got released on the "Roosevelt" album.
