Butthole Surfers – Perry

The Perry Mason theme tune gets a deranged re-working from our favourite Buttholes; this off-kilter psych garage tune is from 1986’s ‘Rembrandt Pussyhorse’.

“It’s about licking the shit off the floor, It’s about doing the things that you ought to do,
It’s about being a butthole surfer.”

Butthole Surfers – Flame Grape

The ‘Jimi’ riff pops up again and an extremely damaged Surfers track that sees them in Locust Abortion Technician territory; a territory one wishes they’d spent far more time in. Guesses that this was recorded around the time they were making ‘Hairway to Steven’ in 1987, but who the fuck knows?

Butthole Surfers – Strangers Die Everyday

Sombre, almost Coil-like track from the end of side one if 1986’s ‘Rembrandt Pussyhorse’.

Butthole Surfers – Day of the Dying Alive

This is a different version of the 1st half of the track titled ‘Jimi’, which is from the Texan bands 1988 album ‘Hairway to Steven’. A track that is Moronic Evil in sludge rock form, and sees the Buttholes at their best.

Butthole Surfers – Boiled Dove

Cracking Butthole’s tune from the essential 1987 compilation ‘Smack My Crack’. Stomping psych garage with Gibby on top form. It was wicked ass.

Butthole Surfers – 100 Million People Dead

The original version of this track, which appeared on the 1984 Hardcore Punk compilation ‘P.E.A.C.E./WAR’, is a lot more ramshackle than the one that ended up on the ‘Humpty Dumpty LSD’ album. Still, the Butthole’s day-glo, frat-boy psych is plain to see/hear. Strange how they kept getting lumped in with the Hardcore scene back in the early to mid 80’s, but it just seemed no one knew where to put them.

Butthole Surfers – Whirling Hall Of Knives

Well, what a title! And, that guitar sound is just endless bliss. One from their 1986 album ‘Rembrandt Pussyhorse’.

Butthole Surfers – The O-Men

Demented Noise Rock from the Texans 1987 magnum opus, ‘Locust Abortion Technician’.
