One Minute Theatre: The Residents

The Residents have been "an avant-garde music and visual arts band" for forty years. Who knows, maybe they're the ones who invented the video that killed the radio star.

For this week's usual midday Wednesday installment, we present a series of four one-minute pieces by this ensemble. Their respective titles are:

Act of Being Polite
Perfect Love
The Simple Song

This sort of thing is what might be considered an "acquired taste." That said, they performed with the late Conway Twitty. You know, the "High Priest of Country Music" and the inspiration for the musical Bye Bye Birdie. (No, it wasn't Elvis.)

You can't make up stuff like this.
