Ralph Records was the label created by the band the Residents when it became apparent to them that no one else would be crazy enough to put out their music. The name came from the phrase "calling Ralph on the porcelain telephone". They also worked with other artists eventually, such as Tuxedomoon, Fred Frith, Renaldo and the Loaf, Half Japanese, and Negativland. They have an excellent compilation out (one of many, actually) called Potatoes, a wide selection of severely twisted folk music for the future.
