ARE WE RESIDENTS?

---

12/8/17:
Who are The Residents? We may never know, but for the time being you can certainly call us Residents!
Recently they had an open casting call for fans to upload cover versions of their songs and the best ones will make it on their new album! We couldn't pass this opportunity up! We've been fans of The Residents for quite some time and dooster in particular has covered three Residents songs in the past. The fans get to vote on which ones make it to the album and The Residents themselves get the final say. If you're a fan of us and/or a fan of them please consider voting for us, or just vote for the hell of it! In the meantime, you can check out what we have to offer:

Blue Rosebuds
This gem can be found on their smash hit album Duck Stab! from the late 70's. You can check it out here at Shidt or you can find this in the song gallery at the Residents website.
My Window
A beautiful song from their album Animal Lover. Also featured on dooster's Yonder album but this version here was tweaked and modified specifically for the contest.
Caring, and Caring Instrumental
An intriguing song from Demons Dance Alone covered by dooster. Available in both standard and instrumental versions.
Loneliness
An instrumental version of Loneliness from The Commercial Album

11/15/17:
Real quick, I want to give a huge thanks to anyone who happens to visit this website and listens to our music. Our intention with this is mostly for our own enjoyment and we've always hoped there is at least one person out there who enjoys this Shidt as much as we do. Thank you very much for listening to us either recently or throughout the years and if you want to get in contact with us for any and most all reasons then please drop us a line at shidt@shidt.com or you can check out our YouTube channel. We'd be happy to hear from you and we'll reply as soon as we can.

That aside, let's get down to this BIRTHDAY stuff...

On this day in 2007 two weirdos from Washington got together and starting making music; some together, some alone, and some with a little help from their friends. What started as some innocent noodling quickly became something more and blossomed into all that's featured on this page and even more than that. To commemorate this monumentous occasion, we at Shidt like to make BIRTHDAY songs as much as possible though we've failed for several years. Below are the BIRTHDAY songs as well as a special entry from Psychedelicopter.

Don't look too into the numbers because they don't matter. THE NUMBERS DON'T MATTER! Enjoy...

BIRTHDAY
The original from 2009. Yes, that's what I said. You can find this on ODD ZNN NNZ
BIRTHDAY '11
Remake from 2011, released in 2014. Makes more sense I guess. From Lowdown
Congratulations (One More Year)
Psychedelicopter's birthday song from The Protectors. Recorded at around 11:30 PM on 11/15/16
BIRTHDAY '17
Ending the losing streak, this was made specifically for today and isn't found on any album


BELOW ARE THE SHIDT ARCHIVES
If you've made it this far then please continue reading.

What you'll experience just might blow your mind and there's a lot to hear but please don't feel overwhelmed. If you come across something you don't like the next track could suit your needs a little better. This is what we've been up to for the past 10 years. You're free to scroll through the archives as much as you wish and you can also use this handy menu to jump directly to your desired artist:
