Butthole surfers

Butthole Surfers is an American noise rock band from San Antonio, Texas. He was one of Kurt Cobain's references. Formed in 1981, the group changes formations several times before stabilizing with Haynes, Leary, and drummer King Coffey since 1983. Teresa Nervosa will be their second drummer between 1983 and 1985, 1986 and 1989, and in 2009. The group recruits also a good number of bassists, before the final arrival of Jeff Pinkus >>>.

Anchored in the hardcore punk scene of the 1980s, Butthole Surfers quickly became known for its chaotic scenic performances, dark humor, and a musical style that included elements of psychedelia, noise rock, punk and, later, electronica >>>. Butthole Surfers is an addict, which affects their sound.

The formation of this band dates back to 1977, when its future leader and singer Gibby Haynes (the son of a Dallas TV host known as Mr. Peppermint) meets guitarist Paul Leary at the University of San Antonio, Texas . They formed four years later, a group with multiple names, all more surreal than the others, Ashtray Baby Heads (or baby skulls ashtrays) or Nine Foot Worm Home Food Makes (the nine-foot-long worm is his own food ), until a radio presenter mistakenly announces them under the salty title of one of their Butthole Surfers songs (literally "The Asshole Surfers" ) . The name they take on the field, of course, will get them into trouble and censorship when they leave the underground to sign with majors in the 1990s. Most DJs announced them under the name of BH Surfers.

The Butthole Surfers released an EP in 1983 with the label Alternative Tentacles (by Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys)>. The EP, Butthole Surfers (also known as Brown Reason to Live and Pee Pee the Sailor), includes absurd titles like The Shah Lee Harvey's Grave and Bar-BQ Pope, sung by Haynes and Leary. . The cover is made by the group itself>. The album inspires, at this period, the singer Kurt Cobain of the band Nirvana, which quotes it in its 10 albums preferred in Journals>. Cobain will later cite Butthole Surfers' Pee Pee the Sailor album as one of the fifty albums that have marked the sound of Nirvana. Cobain will finally meet his future wife, Courtney Love of Hole, at a Butthole Surfers / L7 concert in 1991.
