"He co-founded the much loved cult band, the Residents, where he was primary composer. Hardy retired from The Residents in 2015 but continued to compose for the group through 2018."
So clearly in his final days he wasn't too concerned with keeping up the illusion that he wasn't a member.
I wonder if we'll see a change in their music if it's just Honer Flynn solo now. The band *did* change significantly after the Mole Show so presumably Clem and Kennedy had a big part in those early records. If Fox was the main creative force in their music I'd expect a pretty big change in their sound if Flynn decides to keep the band going (and he probably will). Though I haven't listened to any of their recent stuff either.
I only saw them live once (on the Talking Light tour), and while it wasn't one of my favourite shows since I wasn't into that era of their music all that much, it was still pretty cool and I'm glad I had the chance to see them in person.
