signing copies of their new book
published by Feral House
THE RESIDENTS will only be signing copies of The Brickeaters. Please refrain from bringing other memorabilia into the store. Thank you.
The Brickeaters is an absurdist buddy movie of a story featuring a very tall and young internet content screener teamed up with an aging career criminal whose primary companions are an oxygen bottle and .44 Magnum. After a short crime spree cementing their unhinged parternship, they work together to prevent a middle-aged lottery winner from polluting the LA water supply with massive amounts of fluoride. Their adventures unfold via a wholly unreliable alcoholic narrator desperately avoiding the reality of spousal abandonment.
Alternately seen as a rock band, an arts collective, and a spirit, THE RESIDENTS are regarded as iconic in the world of experimental music. In addition to their groundbreaking work in the areas of trance, world fusion, electronica, punk, industrial and lounge music, the group has also been credited with being among the originators of performance art and music video. Their early videos are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, and their Freak Show CD-Rom was featured in MOMA's "Looking at Music 3.0" exhibition. Their four-decade-long career has also taken them into the world of film and television music, having scored numerous films and TV series as well as several projects for MTV.
