The Residents - Diskomo


On this date in 1980, The Residents released their fifth single, Diskomo. The A side was a disco version of their previously released song, "Eskimo". The B side was "Goosebump" which was essentially four tracks, performed with Snakefinger, that consisted of warped versions of children's songs. The A side was added as a bonus to their sixth album, Commercial Album, when re-released on CD. The San Francisco avant-garde band began in Shreveport, Louisiana but moved to San Francisco early on. They continue to release music.
