"Growing up I thought I was a nobody. Parents, teachers, even friends - none would encourage me. But then I joined The Residents, where being nobody is a positive asset!"
"As an artist my only goal in life has been to express ideas freely. And while I can handle criticism of my work just fine, all too often the reviews targeted me, as if I were the protagonist and not the author. They called me sick, depraved, off balance - all because I revealed the darker side of humanity. But as a Resident that judgment is either directed towards a void, or - and this is the best bit - towards the darkness they now recognize in themselves."
"No, I'm not a member of... what did you call it? The Residents? Never heard of it."
"Joining The Residents is the best decision I ever made. The freedom given to explore and create is unprecedented in the world of music. I wish more people could find this level of autonomy in their lives."
"The Residents are more than a band, more than an art collective. The Residents are a family, one that is always there, for better or for worse, and will bring meaning and purpose into all lives it touches."
"Why join? Because Kula Bocca says so!"
If you would like to answer the call, then head over to PledgeMusic and declare proudly to the world "I AM A RESIDENT!"
