The Residents - Oh Mummy Oh Daddy Can't You See That It's True, What the Beatles Did To Me I Love Lucy Did to You

From 2009 until 2012, The Residents ran a website/label that sold download-only albums and EPs of otherwise unreleased bits and bobs that hadn't yet been collected onto any physical-media albums. The RSD (Robot Selling Device) ended up offering a total of 44 titles. If they did it today, it'd be ideal for Bandcamp. Unfortunately, they took all the material down in 2012 and it remains (ahem) not available. That's a shame, because it's pretty good stuff, and a lot of it is historically significant. For example, this full recording of an early Residents performance: "Oh Mummy! Oh Daddy! Can't You See That It's True, What The Beatles Did To Me I Love Lucy Did To You" was a special show put on for the 5th anniversary of Rather Ripped Records on June 7th, 1976. The Residents were joined by Snakefinger, Arf and Omega, Peggy Honeydew, Zeibak and others in this live performance at the Longbranch Saloon in Berkeley California. The Residents appeared as mummies and Snakefinger dressed as a giant chicken".

I'd slightly forgotten about these online releases... I did purchase the odd item at the time from RSD but wrongly assumed it would always be around for future purchases! Bah! And... on top of that... even my proxy server no longer works for me regarding zippyshare so, sadly I can only admire the posts rather than listen now.

hideip doesn't work for me - downloading gets a 404 error.
i suggest the browsec vpn extension it's free and works fine here.
