The Butthole Surfers...

Postby jonnygothispen » Tue May 31, 2016 8:18 pm

I saw them in a small room at the UW Whitewater in 1987, and again at the Barrymore a few years ago. It was like a completely different band, or maybe just a geriatric version of themselves. But anyway, here's an interesting article on the Buttholes...

"BUTTHOLE SURFERS WERE THE EPITOME OF EVERY HELL-RAISING ROCK'N'ROLL LEGEND YOU EVER HEARD"

"Use your imagination to dream up a horrible road story about a barely human troupe of tripping Texas lunatics limping across a defenceless pre-EU Europe, never more than an inch away from incarceration – then multiply it by about 10,000. You will still not even be close to approaching a shadowy semblance of what it was like to sleep beside these four drug-crazed, gin-soaked psychopaths for six full months.”
