Meet The Residents Wiki

Ralph America is a record label that released Residents material which formed in 1993 and closed in 2010, it is a reincarnation of Ralph Records.


Ralph America was a sublabel and reformation of Ralph Records, which had been out of business for four years. It was also formed as an American counterpart to Euro Ralph, which had been formed the year before. Although initially formed in 1993, it wasn't until 1997 began to release consistently.

Unlike Euro Ralph, which acted as The Residents' main European record label (as Torso had previously been), Ralph America's role within The Residents' ecosystem was closer to that of UWEB, providing rare Residents recordings via mail order, which may have been of interest to fans, but not to the typical consumer.

Ralph America's final release was Dollar General in 2010. With the rise of internet downloads, The Cryptic Corporation began to release would be Ralph America content through it's own Bandcamp page, The Ralphlet Outlet.
