I like when they play with one finger, like Chris Lowe.

all of the synth work done by the members of The Residents, Joey Karam of The Locust. Which I must say he has an extremely impressive setup nowadays, Voyager, multimoog and pretty extensive MOTM modular setup.

I think (correct me someone) that the early Residents stuff was done with Serge.

I'm also glad Joey's Multimoog is up there on stage and not on my shelf any longer ;-)
He has two of 'em.

I'm with goldphinga. I think Stevie Wonder is one of the most expressive synth players though. Prince was a pretty sweet synth player too. The dudes from Daft Punk are pretty frickin' sick at times.

Interesting - my mental impression of most Residents stuff is "cheap, nasty synth sounds a go-go" but then mostly I have heard their late 80s -90s output... definitely a lot of casio cheese noises and weedy little string/oboe patches in the mix. I'd be curious to hear their early early work to know if it was different in that regard.

Don't get me wrong, I like some Residents - Duck Stab and God in 3 Persons are favorites... but I think they have a kinda ugly sonic aesthetic at times, especially where synth patches are concerned.

Yeah, I'm not too sure in regards to the Residents.
My opinion came from knowing someone that said they used to be in the band in the early 80's. He had lots of Serge.
But you know- how does one verify something like this?
I can't compare his face to a photo on an album.
It's also hard to say for how long any one member was a part of the band.
Someone could leave or join and how would we know? :)

When I saw Residents during the Icky Flix tour, they were using a Buchla/Nearfield Marimba Lumina. Was the final confrmation I needed to order mine :wink: . As for the rest of the gear, you couldn't really see much, except one of the Alesis AirFX/fake theremin thingies. And the guitarist had a VERY pointy-headed guitar... The rest was all rack mounted and hidden...
