Joe de Larios Back in 1980, a friend let me tape this album. I wore that tape out. Favorite track: The Model.

kaleidoscopeman I actually met Snakefinger once back in the late 70's... he was dressed in a full body tiger suit with a long tail... he signed my Residents single of "Satisfaction" ! Favorite track: Smelly Tongues.

about

Snakefinger surely needs not much of an introduction. Born Philip Charles Lithman in London, he moved to San Francisco in 1971. His roots lie in the British blues scene, but he soon became friends with The Residents who also gave him the name Snakefinger based on a photograph of Lithman performing, in which his finger looks like a snake about to attack his violin. In 1972 Lithman returned to England and formed the pub rock band Chilli Willi and the Red Hot Peppers. After the lack of success of the second album, he returned to the states and work on his first solo album began. "Chewing Hides The Sound" came out in 1979 on Ralph Records. It includes classics such as his Kraftwerk cover "The Model", "What Wilbur?" and "Picnic In The Jungle". The songs on the album were co-written with The Residents. The music showcased Lithman's distinctive slide guitar playing and often surreal imagery. At the same time, a string of singles was released. All tracks that were exclusive to these releases are added as bonus tracks here. The CD was also remastered carefully and sounds better than ever before.
