The Booker Tease is an instrumental track by The Residents, inspired by R&B/funk artist, Booker T.

Background

The song was recorded in late 1977 as a one-minute instrumental jam inspired by Booker T. It was first released in February 1978 on the Duck Stab EP. In November of 1978, it was included in the Duck Stab / Buster & Glen LP. It was also included in the soundtrack to the 2000 film, 'Condo Painting'

Being a short, poppy, yet twisted instrumental, the song can be considered a precursor to The Commercial Album.

It was re-recorded once in 2012, as part of the D*ck S*ab album, and was performed live for the first time as part of the Dog Stab tour. [1]
