The Residents took a long enough break from touring Wormwood while in Berlin to step into a studio and record some of the music from the live show. That gave us Roadworms. Recorded live, but with no audience. An intriguing attempt to capture a section of the Residents' Wormwood tour without actually recording live shows. Instead, they set up in a Berlin studio and recorded the live arrangements, aiming to get each song in a single take, later adding some overdubs. The result is typically quirky, having a mix of rawness and polish that makes it quite appealing to listen to.
