BUTTHOLE SURFERS ALBUMS

‘PSYCHIC…POWERLESS…ANOTHER MAN’S SAC’, ‘REMBRANDT PUSSYHORSE’, ‘LOCUST ABORTION’ TECHNICIAN’, ‘HAIRWAY TO STEVEN’, ‘PIOUHGD’ AND MORE

Matador Records will be reissuing a number of key catalog titles by legendary San Antonio, Texas band, The Butthole Surfers, including the classic albums Psychic…Powerless…Another Man’s Sac, Rembrandt Pussyhorse, Locust Abortion Technician, Hairway to Steven, and piouhgd plus EPs and other material recorded during the band’s strange, grotesque, and ultimately unparalleled first decade. The albums are available digitally and info on physical release dates is to follow.

The Butthole Surfers were formed in 1981 by vocalist Gibby Haynes and guitarist Paul Leary. Drummer King Coffey joined in 1983. Together, they have remained the band’s three constant members across various recording sessions and touring incarnations.

The Butthole Surfers were, unquestionably one of the most beloved, influential, and lights-out insane bands to emerge from the U.S. ’80’s underground and their career is long overdue for critical reassessment and rediscovery (and with that in mind, a feature length documentary about the band is scheduled to premiere in 2024).

In the meantime, listen to the curated playlist “The Butthole Surfers: 1984-91 A Primer” HERE.
