Renegade experimental art collective The Residents have been making some of the world’s most mind-bending music and visual artifacts for over 40 years. In today’s modern celebrity-obsessed culture, The Residents dare to keep their identities a mystery, with the enigmatic quartet always wearing masks that ensure their anonymity. One of the most fascinating and unusual bands of all time, their uncompromising focus on creative control cuts against conventional conceptions of commercial success. Theory of Obscurity cracks open their official archives, unveiling a flood of rare footage from decades of live performances, plus incisive interviews from the bands they have inspired including Devo, Primus, Ween and Talking Heads. Interviews from some of their biggest fans (including The Simpsons creator Matt Groening and illusionist Penn Jillette) help illuminate a band whose perseverance and originality are now endearing them to a whole new generation of fans. Thriving at a time when art has seemingly become more dispensable than ever, The Residents continue to subvert all expectations, proving that perhaps artistic integrity can triumph over all.
