The Residents on RSM


THIS IS A MAILED RESPONSE
RSM RECEIVED in NJ, Late 1978
from
"THE RESIDENTS"
in San Francisco,
concerning their opinion of the
"4 From Phonography" EP



cryptic translation:

Dear R. Stevie Moore and H.P.,
A truly marvelous and besides
excellent record. I mean it. Goodbye
Piano
made me want to tear out my
hair because it is so great, and I
never tear out my hair! I must hear
more from Phonography! I already
sat Ralph Records down and said
"Listen to this, it's great," "This guy's
got star potential" and all that good
stuff. They said "hmm" and "hmm."
(That's good!) So send more!
I also enclosed a Duck Stab if
you haven't heard our latest.

Excitedly yours,
A Resident

We were so psyched,
that we inadvertently
used this letter
as a
FULL PAGE ad
(inside back cover!)
in an issue of
TROUSER PRESS magazine!

We soon heard back from them, seemed they weren't too pleased
that we didn't ask for permission.
Quote Mr. Fox: "We better be careful what we write to you."


(Well, Okay. Uh...sorry, I guess.)
