The Residents – 1978 Autographed Photo With Provenance
An autographed RESIDENTS photograph, send to UK music journalist (and now noted author and cultural historian) Jon Savage. We acquired this directly from Savage, who reviewed the first three Residents lp’s for England’s SOUNDS magazine, and has written about the band extensively (google his name and The Residents for examples.)
The Residents have signed this 1977 Cryptic Corporation 8″ x 10″ promotional photo (rare enough !) “A Resident”, “Another Resident”, “Yeah Yeah Yeah Jon” and with the third Resident simply drawing a cloud around his face. At the bottom one of the group has inscribed “To Good Ol’ Jon, From” above “The Residents” on the drum head, and below the band name “Heh Heh.”
We acquired this directly from Jon Savage, who at our request authenticated it on the back, writing “Sent to me by The Residents Early 1978, Jon Savage.” The only Residents signed photo we’ve seen or heard of, with impeccable provenance. In near mint condition, with Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
