Butthole Surfers: Rembrandt Pussyhorse/Cream Corn From The Socket Of Davis EP


Originally slated to be released in 1984 on Alternative Tentacles, 1986 became the "official" release year for the Butthole's second LP on Touch & Go Records. It was also intended to be an EP. As songs were added and dates were pushed back, T&G was the label who offered to have it as it's official home. It was further pushed back when BHS decided to add 2 more tracks.

Originated in Texas, then relocated in California, then back to Texas, BHS brought their acid induced music to the punk world in the early 80's. At this time, the line up changed about an average of two times for every record. Usually holding two stand up percussionists, 2 guitars, vocals and a bass. Recordings often included tape manipulation, violen, horns, samples and plenty of off the wall lyrics.

Disturbing, hilarious, obviously drug influenced, I give you one of my favorite records/bands during my highschool years.
