Buy Or Die! was The Residents' mail-order catalogue, distributed by Ralph Records in the 1970s and 1980s.

Buy Or Die! has existed in various permutations since then, and exists currently as the online shop on The Residents' official website.

History Edit

Largely designed by Homer Flynn and his Pore Know Graphics graphic design company and boasting eye-catching imagery (famously including contributions from alternative comix artist Gary Panter, who would also design the album cover for the compilation Subterranean Modern in 1979), Buy Or Die! was one of the primary methods devised by Ralph Records to sell and promote their products during the growing success of their flagship act, The Residents, in the mid-to-late 1970s.
