Chewing Hides The Sound was recorded by Snakefinger in collaboration with The Residents, who co-produced and co-wrote many of the songs on the album with him and also performed much of the instrumentation.
The album has the distinction of featuring the first recorded cover version of Kraftwerk's "The Model"; it also features a cover of "Magic and Ecstasy" by Ennio Morricone from the score of John Boorman's film Exorcist II: The Heretic.
