Packed with interviews and imagery, Never Known Questions tells a unique and original tale of a band truly like no otherSince their inception in the early 1970s, The Residents have confused, confounded, and delighted fans and critics for more than 40 years. Shrouded in anonymity, the band has charted a course with no beginning and no end that has taken them to the outer limits of entertainment and audience expectations. From their debut Santa Dog single, through warped sonic tributes ranging from the Beatles to Hank Williams, mysterious recordings made among the Inuit, iconic eyeball imagery, and collections of one minute songs to jaw dropping live shows, innovations in audio visual technologies and social media, conceptual albums and tours, abandoned film projects and eventual semi de-masking to reveal the slightly unsettling Randy Rose, the band is unquestionably one of pop's most innovative acts. Never Known Questions delves deep into The Residents' psyche, charting their rise from cottage industry imagineers to art pop figureheads and exploring 40 plus years of chameleonic musical adventures, along with the lore and legend that has built up around the group. It covers such questions as Were they really Talking Heads and Brian Eno in disguise? What is a Cryptic Corporation? Who was Nigel Senada? Did they really forget about recording an album? How's Randy doing now? And what kind of a band sells a fridge full of records for $100,000 anyway?. --Provided by publisher.
