Who are the Residents? With absolute certainty this question will probably never be answered, because they will probably take their secret with them to the grave or have already taken it with them. The Beatles have been mythologized into the group just like Captain Beefheart. Homer Flynn describes himself as the spokesman for the eyeball band, which has been surprising with one new concept after another since the early 1970s, and it is to be assumed that he is the only remaining leader of the group after the death of Hardy Fox alias Charles Bobuck. Asked about the residents, he leans back in his armchair with relish and talks about the band in the third person.
Who are The Residents? Thousands of legends entwine around the permanent avant-gardists from San Francisco, but their identity remains hidden under huge eyeballs. With the new CD "Intruders" in their luggage they went on the "In Between Dreams" tour.
Homer Flynn is a friendly, distinguished gentleman of 74, officially spokesman for Cryptic Corporation, which represents The Residents to the outside world. Insiders claim he's identical to Randy Rose, the band's fearsome singer. He himself has always denied that. As actually none of the myths that entwine around the band is confirmed. At the end of the 60s, when the San Francisco Fog emerged, many suspected the Beatles behind the four eyeballs. Also the identity of her mentor and idea giver N. Senada lies in the fog. Was he really Captain Beefheart? Or the composer Harry Partch? In an exclusive talk with eclipsed, Homer Flynn explores the history and future of the world's most enigmatic band and nourishes new myths.
