RESIDENTS UPDATE : SOUNDTRACK RELEASED TO THE BRICKEATERS BOOK
It’s been almost exactly a year since The Residents’ neo noir pulp masterpiece, The Brickeaters, was released by Feral House. We were celebrating the book’s success when it suddenly hit me – WE HAVEN’T OFFERED IT FOR SALE ON RESIDENTS.COM!?!?! Okay, the last year has been pretty crazy, but there’s really no excuse for not making it available to true fans on THE RESIDENT’S PERSONAL WEBSITE!!! My bad…
So, to make amends we have a ONE TIME ONLY SUPER SPECIAL MONDO COOL OFFER! You can buy The Brickeaters right here for 18 buckeroos – okay, that’s retail price, no big deal. But The Residents said we’ve got to add some music, which was a bit of a head scratcher until one of them said – HEY! What about the River of Crime soundtrack as a bonus? It’s perfect!
And of course The Eyeballs are always right. Now, the River of Crime Soundtrack was released in 2006 as part of the two CD ROC set which featured all five podcast episodes, but this is the soundtrack as it was originally composed and never released until NOW! – all 68 minutes of it.
(Some of you hardcore followers have heard several of these tracks on the Free! Weird! page on the website, but this is the first time they are all collected together and put on a CD.)
