Diskomo Live is a single released by The Residents for free with the April 1988 issue of Reflex Magazine. It is the final collaboration between The Residents and Snakefinger prior to his death.


Diskomo Live is an excerpt from the final 13th Anniversary Show, which featured a very different set up to the rest of the show, featuring a slightly altered setlist, including Diskomo as the encore, as well as Penn & Teller narrating. The single was released as a bonus for the April 1988 issue of Reflex Magazine, which featured The Residents on the cover.

Live Dispute

Residents fan club owner Uncle Willie, disputed the claim that this was an authentic live recording, claiming it was a studio re-creation of a live performance in his March 1990 newsletter.
