from The Residents' Mole Show.
This is not Part Three of the Mole Trilogy."
This 25-minute long EP will probably be sought out primarily by fans of the group, given its obscure provenance; it consists of prelude, intermission, and "recessional" music written to accompany The Mole Show, the travelling musical road show that the Residents put together in the early 1980s.
The Mole Show was an adaptation based on a (still uncompleted) musical-dramatic trilogy depicting a race of mole people attempting to make its collective way in an unwelcoming world. But even though only fans are likely to know about this recording and seek it out, those who want a good, concise introduction to the band's unique musical worldview could do far worse than to start here.
The five compositions on this program are not really in song form -- at times, particularly on the "recessional," the "New Hymn," the sound is almost a sort of ambient minimalism. But "Shorty's Lament" is nicely organized and beautifully performed, in a slightly creepy way. The same is true for the poignant, but somewhat more explicitly creepy, "Would We Be Alive?" Recommended.

Shorty's Lament (Intermission)
The Moles Are
Would We Be Alive ? (Intermission)
The New Hymn (Recessional)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COMBINED SHIPPING ON ALL 12" VINYL / LPS / 12" EPS / 12" SINGLES - PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY!!!!
We offer combined shipping on all LPs / 12" Vinyls: our shipping rates are listed above. HOWEVER shipping packages that weigh more than 2kg is VERY expensive. Therefore we can only offer combined shipping up to a maximum of SEVEN (7) LPs / 12" vinyls. Any extra purchases will be invoiced, packaged and shipped separately.
***Due to the physical logistics of how I can package orders, I will not combine box sets with other items, I will only package them individually***
POSTAGE FOR DIFFERENT FORMATS will be invoiced at my discretion:
While I am happy to combine (for example) one or two 7” singles into one package with 12” records, sometimes it simply isn’t practical (like if you want me to combine one 12” record with three or more 7” records). I simply do not think that these combinations can be packaged together safely and securely. Therefore these will be invoiced separately as two packages.
IF YOU ARE UNSURE, please contact me before offerding!
Sorry but I am no longer willing to carry combined transactions beyond two weeks of sales (see below).
I would appreciate payment within seven days of the sale’s end. If you want to offer on more of my sales ending a week later please inform me. I will wait and issue a combined invoice at the close of the second week’s sales.
However, I am no longer willing to carry combined transactions beyond two weeks and in these cases would appreciate payment promptly after the close of the second week’s sales.
I am sorry to have to introduce these measures – I always try to be patient and allow buyers to offer on extra sales and / or delay payment. Unfortunately some buyers have been stretching out transactions to unacceptable lengths so I feel I have no option but to limit ‘carried over’ transactions to two weeks.
