A Tribute to Hardy Fox of The Residents

Stuart celebrates the unmistakable sound of The Residents and their co-founder Hardy Fox. We Travel The Spaceways by Sun Ra is the featured album, plus murky beats from Dean Blunt.

Over the last 50 years The Residents have been a juggernaut plowing down the expectations of what a band can and should be. Stuart pays tribute to one of their founding members Hardy Fox who passed away earlier this month. The Residents sound is unmistakable for its combination of popular lounge music, contemporary classical composers like Harry Partch, 1960s jazz, nursery rhyme vocals with a sinister element and crazy concepts like Diskomo, a disco remix of their Eskimo album - itself a satirisation of people's ignorance towards indigenous cultures. Stuart talks to Hardy’s long-time friend and colleague Homer Flynn, Captain of the Cryptic Corporation, the management body behind The Residents enigmatic art and music collective.

We Travel The Spaceways by Sun Ra is the featured album plus murky beats from Dean Blunt, Moroccan guitarist Moulay Ahmed El Hassani and Oneohtrix Point Never’s new single.
