butthole surfers



paging Mr. Hendrix...

If Matt from Minneapolis is still out there or happens to drop in again, I hope this qualifies as "more noise, please." I've added a link belatedly to the sidebar on SibLINGSHOT to your site Perceptions. Delusions but I'm out of Mountain Dew to welcome you back to pull up a chair. Apologies that it took me so long to look in on you, but this last week setting up here has sucked up more of my time than I guessed.

This one comes direct from Dallas, Texas ; so i'd like to say hello to Big B from AD while I'm at it.

The first behemoth of a track features Gibby Haynes ; Paul Leary ; Terence Smart ; King Coffey ; and Teresa Nervosa (very possibly). I can't believe it's 20 years already since this album first appeared. Their 4th, no less - co-produced by Ric Wallace - it was reissued on Latino Buggerveil in 1999.

Rosa pointed out to me, as we shopped for groceries at the supermarket, that the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original) is on yet again on a FreeView later tonight.

With the magnificent Butthole Surfers in mind, we may well crack open a bottle or two and watch it in part...

ib,
Aye, this be the noise! The good kind, to boot. Much thanks.

The only time I saw Butthole Surfers was Lollapalooza (was it the first year?) I ended up standing in beerline all through their set, though it didn't sound like I missed much... I heard just two or three songs played- from the beerline- with the remainder of their time onstage drunken hollaring and (what sounded like) very loud fireworks. Very loud fireworks amplified through the P.A.!

Thanks for the sidebar link, too. Much appreciated.

(ha! and the CAPTCHA code i have to type ends with 'tnt'!)

Hey Matt, good to hear from you again.

Somehow, Lollapalooza was made for Gibby Haynes and the Butthole Surfers. A perfect marriage!

CAPTCHA code ?
