The Third Reich 'N Roll Report Abuse

Comments:
Released in 1975, this was the second official Residents release and a common favorite amongst fans. Notable facts: the album art featured Dick Clark dressed as a Nazi and the first James Brown song was covered by these guys on this album; Papa's Got A Brand New Bag (and in German!).

Eskimo Report Abuse
This is beyond doubt strange, its uninhabited-sounding music and (invented) language distinctive and imaginative (not 70s material, not even 80s material).

Fingerprince Report Abuse
While many songs may not be THAT interesting, they're impossible to dislike, for example, You Yesyesyes, Tourniquet Of Roses (GREAT fun marching rhythm coupled with scary brasses) and Godsong!

Roadworms: The Berlin Sessions Report Abuse
Far more "listenable" than a lot of their other live releases and so much more original than Wormwood!
