GINGERBREAD MAN was The Resident's first foray into the world of enhanced CDs and was released in both this music-only CD version, as well as an interactive CD-ROM. The songs are portraits of a range of disaffected fringe characters--an old soldier, an aging musician, a weaver, a dying oilman, and more. One melodic figure ties all the vignettes together and a series of guest singers give voice to the characters (Todd Rundgren appears as the aging musician). The approach is similar to what the band did on FREAKSHOW. Again, these are characters that skirt the mainstream and, appropriately, they mirror The Residents' own history and circumstances. By turns disturbing and alluring, GINGERBREAD MAN could only have been realized by this ensemble.
