Intermission: Extraneous Music From The Residents' Mole Show is a 1982 EP by The Residents, compiling pre-recorded music used in their Mole Show live performance tour. It was the first in a line of albums that would bear the warning that it was not part three of The Mole Trilogy.

History Edit

Intermission collects the opening, closing, and intermission music from The Mole Show tour. This music was written especially for the touring performance, though it was played from a tape rather than performed live by the band. The three intermission numbers go between "Migration" and "Another Land" in the show. The other two tracks open and close the entire performance.

The infant on the cover is Jana Flynn, daughter of The Residents' spokesperson and manager Homer Flynn. The Intermission EP was reissued as bonus tracks to the 1988 CD reissue of Mark of the Mole, and in 1998 as a stand-alone release.
