Over the weekend I heard "Pepper" (You know, the Texan Strippers' anthem, "They were all in love with dying, They were doing it in Texas.") on Sirius/XM Lithium.

I forgot how much I used to listen to The Butthole Surfers.

This album, Hairway to Steven, in particular.

I first head “Rocky” on WPRB Princeton, and HAD to get the album out after hearing the title.

This record has been a mainstay in my collection ever since. It’s the Breakfast of Champions of Butthole Surfers records.

It’s true that, until this morning, I haven’t listened to it in a couple of years, but there was good decade there when it sat on the front passenger seat of my vehicle day in, day out. In fact, I actually got into a fist-fight at a party once over this whether to listen this record or Shady Grove by Jerry Garcia.

I guess I was really determined to have people hear this.

Hell I love this album and Independent Worm Saloon. John E. Smokes is one of my favorite songs by them and I've got the worn out vinyl to prove it. The Buttholes (continue to) rule, ok?

Hairway to Steven is the "Dark Side of the Moon" of the 80s... A must have for any collection! This album got me hooked on the Buttholes and I've been an addict for about 25 years now.
