The Residents - Somethin' Devilish

Homer (?) at the performance.

In 1971, The Residents performed on open mic night at a club called "The Boarding House". They performed alongside Phillip "Snakefinger" Lithman, Bavarain Experimentalist N. Senada, and night club singer Peggy Honeydew. Half of the performance was featured on "Baby Sex", but the full show was released 20 years later on the UWEB compilation "Daydream B-Liver".

- Snakefinger's name was earned by his performance, because Snakefinger's violion playing was so fast his finger looked like a snake.
