More delightful noise from the Surfers of the Butthole. The material ranges from acoustic ballads ("Negro Observers") to electronic mayhem ("Eye of the Chicken") to total dementia ("Concubine", "Cherub") to the wonderfully ridiculous ("Lady Sniff", "Butthole Surfer"). This is easily as good as their first 12" which I thought was one of the best discs of 1984. Grab it!

Wow my first second review for the legendary Flipside Godzine. Just think yesterday I was working for this sissy mag called Ink something. Well, before I'm ready for the "Hall of Fame" let's get on with the review. When I first listened to the first cut, "Concubine", at the wrong speed of 45, I couldn't believe my ears, it was the greatest aural experience I have ever had especially when all the demonic voices come charging at me with full powered intensity. Now that I have realized my mistake, I'm a crushed man. However, I would still pick this one up. Maybe you might get lucky and get to hear "Phlem Wads" originating from neat-o clear vinyl. If not, who gives a shit?

Touch & Go is on a real winning streak here, what with the DIE KREUZEN LP, and now this. By now, most people know how dynamically weird the BUTTHOLES are, so I'll skip the intros and just say check these walking, talking Texas nightmares out...dudes.
