I've been getting pretty in to Kobo Abe lately and this song has been on my mind a lot. It's hard to tell if they're making a deliberate reference r not but it seems like they are.
I think he's just talking about how his buddy just lives in a small apartment.
I'm not convinced, between the lyrics and the album art.

I'm familiar with the band's name from an old TV Cream article (http://tv.cream.org/extras/charityshoprecords/). I don't live in the UK so I'm not sure if this is a genuine thrift store staple there, but it ticks at least one necessary gimmick for it to be.
When I worked at a record shop most of those were $.50 bin staples.
But that Faust record was easily $30-$40 a decade ago, probably more now, and I've actually never seen that Residents album in the USA. Plenty of others but not that one.
