**2019 stock** "Philip Charles Lithman aka Snakefinger was born in London, England, and moved to the USA in 1971. He is known for his solo work and for his guitar playing with The Residents. It is said he was given the name 'Snakefinger' by The Residents based on a photograph of Lithman performing, in which his finger looks like a snake about to attack his violin. In 1972 he moved back to the UK to form the blues rock band Chilli Willi and the Red Hot Peppers. Because sales of their second album were poor, he returned to America.
Chewing Hides the Sound was his first solo album and came out in 1979 on Ralph Records. It includes songs composed together with The Residents as well as cover versions, such as The Model by Kraftwerk or Magic and Ecstasy by Ennio Morricone. It was the first record to showcase Lithman's distinct slide guitar playing. The cover was created by Ralph Records in-house designers Pore No Graphics.
Klanggalerie are now proud to present you the first CD re-issue since 1999. The music has been remastered, and we added three bonus tracks from the same time as the album: The Spot was a single A side from 1978, Smelly Tongues its B-side and Talkin' In the Town was the B-side to The Model."
