Biografia

The unusual journey of the Texas
based Butthole surfers begins in Texas in the late 1970s when Gibby Haynes and
Paul Leary met and began performing, playing under a different band name every
gig. Their controversial moniker came about when someone mistakenly introduced
them as that, and they decided to stick with the name full time. They built a
cult following for their outrageous live shows, and their committedly uncomfortable
humor. They played atonal, though sometimes appealingly melodic, rock and noise
experiments, and this devoutly underground aesthetic made them a perfect fit
for indie label Alternative Tentacles who issued their debut self-titled EP in
1983. That same year they settled on a drummer, King Coffey. Over the next ten
years they built a small but devoted fanbase, took on full-time bassist Jeff
Pinkus, and remained far outside the mainstream. However, after signing to a
major, Capitol Records, in 1993, they had their first charting album, Independent
Woman Saloon
, and then managed the most unlikely turn of their career two
years later by having a number 1 US hit on the Modern Rock Track chart and
going top 40 in multiple countries with “Pepper”, a hip-hop inflected
minimalist track about death. The song’s success would drive the album it
appeared on, Electriclarryland, to number 30 on the album chart, the
biggest success of their career. Five years later they released Weird
Revolution
, and then continued to play live until 2016 when they announced
a hiatus.
