The Residents chronology
Duck Stab!
Duck Stab/Buster & Glen

Duck Stab/Buster & Glen is an album released in 1978 by The Residents. It is often called Duck Stab, after Duck Stab!, a seven-song EP released earlier in 1978 featuring shorter songs similar to the first side of Fingerprince. Buster and Glen was intended to follow Duck Stab!, but instead was the B-side of LP with the former release as the A-side.

The shorter length of the songs made the album more accessible for fans who had recently heard "Satisfaction", and songs like "Constantinople" and "Hello Skinny" helped cement the band's cult following. This album features guitar by Philip "Snakefinger" Lithman, as well as his vocal on "Constantinople".
