Anyone familiar with the Residents expects a particularly thorough brand of mind-fuckery from the San Francisco musicians/art-misfits. But there's mind-fuckery, and then there's selling a giant box set that comes in an honest-to-god refrigerator. For $100,000.
That's what the Residents are proposing to do come Christmas Day. Starting Dec. 25, the group is putting 10 editions of its Ultimate Box Set up for sale, each of which includes a copy of seemingly every Residents release ever, plus an eyeball mask (more on that later), and a mystery item reportedly “worth” $5 million.
