Songs For Swinging Larvae - (1981)

Songs for Swinging Larvae is Renaldo And The Loaf's debut album released on The Residents own, Ralph Records label. They are an English duo who force instrumentation through effect boxes, working with tape loops and cut-ups to grab any interesting sound they can. And while much of it comes off half-baked,there are some pieces here that you'd want to hear more than once: the gamelan and sax throb of "Bali Whine," the threatening crescendo of "BPM," and the dark bubble of a tape loop that spools through "Spratt's Medium." Music guaranteed to rid your house of unwanted guests.
