"The Residents have remixed their first album from 1971, the never released Warner Bros. Album. The Warner Bros. Album was the group's first demo tape. They mailed it anonymously (they didn't have a name yet) to Harve Halverstadt at Warner Brothers. Halverstadt was chosen because he had worked with Captain Beefheart, one of the group's musical heroes. The tape was returned with a rejection addressed to 'Residents, 20 Sycamore St., San Francisco'. This, of course, gave the group their name, which first appeared as 'The Residents Uninc.', a fictional musical organization. The Residents maintain that Halverstadt made the right decision, but the place of the Warner Bros. Album in Residential history is assured not only because of the role it played in the naming of the band."
