Video of the week -- Pepper

This Texas band is really good -- but I wonder how many people have never listened to it because they didn't want to take a chance on a band called "Butthole Surfers"! Found via Ranch Chimp.

Good Morning Infodel!

Hey ... I think I heard of these guy's (just kiddin) :) (duuuhhh, it sez that in the post) But yeah ... I love the Butthole's of course, not because their from Texas though, but just because of their enormous talent's and contribution's, seen them several time's "live" in local Dallas venue's, I forgot how many .. and had the opportunity to meet and talk with Gibby.

Later Guy ....

Naturally I was attracted to the Butthole Surfers just BECAUSE of their name! Liked them since the 80's.

It's impressive music. I'm still baffled as to how, exactly, one goes about the act of surfing a butthole. Actually, I'd probably rather not know.

From what I gather (from Gibby) was that at first they didnt even have a band name, they used different name's depending on what venue they played, they had a song called this (BS) and after so long just deceided to use the song title for a group name, but the name was suppose to mean "irritating" kind of ike having a case of hemmoroid's and making you uncomfortable and squirm, etc, because the song was that. They have another song for instance called "annoying" or similar, their earliest music was so strange and experimental, done under the influence of mind altering drug's (kind of like what the Beatles experimented with in their latter year's). Gibby's dad was a popular kiddie show personality too, you may recall (nationally) Mr.Peppermint.
