Yes, you take some of this stuff as cartoonie. The album notes include a brief introduction to the American Composers Series concept followed by brief biographies of the two artists and of The Residents, describing them as "a group of pseudo-artists who freely indulge themselves in the Great American Culture". It was also the first Residents album to use computer-created art on the cover and in the promotional video, It's a Man's Man's Man's World.

Originally by Hank Williams with His Drifting Cowboys. Originally by (unknown), Hank Williams with His Drifting Cowboys.

Side Two redoes Sousa, the American March King, and this is where things go masterfully off the rails. Now long tried and true patriotic marches are turned into horrorshows done in the massively whacked and parodic fashion as some of the covers on "The Third Reich 'N' Roll", done in an ever seguing and theme sharing suite style.

Reviews:
  • Mavegar
The second album in the series on 'The American Composers' is called 'Stars and Hank Forever'. The side dedicated to Hank Williams is beautiful. The song “Six More Miles To The Graveyard” is plunged into a dark atmosphere that adds to its realism. Against all odds, “Kaw-liga” takes up the beat of Michael Jackson’s “Billy Jean” but with a distinctly weird key. When I was a DJ, every time I was playing The Residents, I was hoping that people resist the urge to leave. But with “Kaw-liga,” no problem …this piece was a success in most alternative clubs. The Torso label even release a 12 inch version stretched to 9 minutes with a particularly scathing guitar track. The B side, dedicated to John-Philip Sousa, is less spectacular but just as interesting. 'The American Composers Series' was abandoned because of the disappearance of the vinyl format that allowed to approach one composer per side.© Alain Cliche 2016
