"[The Residents] had never toured before because their music depended so much on the studio and they feared that it would not translate well to stage. However, the invention of EM-U's Emulator in 1981 was a big step forward in music creation. The Emulator was the first affordable sampler, and it allowed musicians to take all those sounds which can't be produced by conventional instruments and play them back with great precision and control. They were so impressed that, ever the technophiles, they ordered one immediately. Their first one was Emulator #0005. The band used it extensively on the second Mole Trilogy album, The Tunes of Two Cities, and started experimenting with using it to perform music from The Mark of the Mole live in their studio."
