Night of the Hunters(2007)
Somewhere between 1994's The Gingerbread Man and 1998's Wormwood, a Residents album disappeared.
Actually, it didn't disappear, it was usurped. The Residents received an offer to write some music for a television series and they couldn't pass up such an intriguing opportunity. Suddenly the album they were writing became a wholly different project.
That album, which had a working title of "That Slab Called Night," was to be a concept project based on the effect darkness has on perception, the world of the shadow. Though never completed, in 2007 The Residents thought it would be insightful to sort through the then over ten years old music and create something new... Night of the Hunters.
