    Calling all BUtThOLe SuRferS fans: James Burns, author of Let’s Go to Hell; Scattered memories of the Butthole Surfers, was just featured on the Let it Roll podcast. Worth a listen if you are so inclined!

    Someone told me the drummer (or maybe Pinkus ?) was touring recently and doing BHS material.

    Jeff Pinkus is playing bass with The Melvins right now.

    Thanks. I wonder what my friend was talking about -maybe he was talking about the Melvins who are playing here tomorrow?
    I was sure he was alluding to a former member of BHS touring with a band, but that kind of lines up with the Melvins being on tour and Pinkus playing with them I suppose.

    The Melvins just released Pinkus Abortion Technician where they cover “Graveyard” and “Moving To Florida”.

    Face it, nobody would have even heard of them if John Paul Jones hadn't produced them.

    Bold words, manco, and entirely wrong on your part. I hadn’t heard of JPJ before he produced their album!

    Hardbound book up for preorder at melodic virtue. Also includes a flexi with unreleased track.

    Kinda spendy , but I think I’ll spring for the deluxe and the shirt...

    ...so when is that new album coming?? Thought for sure we would have heard more by now.

    Paul said ‘no new album’ over on their bhs forums. I guess Gibby just wasn’t as enthusiastic as we were all hoping.

    Man, I’d be happy with an instrumental/ Paul vocal album at this point!

    Anyone heard the Cocky Bitches album with Paul in guitar? Only heard the 7” so far.

    A flexi-disc! :thumbsdow C'mon, at the price they're asking this should have been a double sided VINYL single with Human Cannonball (maybe a different mix?) on the a-side (just like originally intended when first announced all those years ago as an upcoming Touch and Go label release.)

    I agree, Double sided, butthole brown vinyl, with picture sleeve. And throw the shirt in with the deluxe package. It looks like only 1500 (1000 regular/ 500 deluxe) were made and they do look well printed. I’m sure the cost was pretty high to make, although I don’t really know.

    I am a sucker for the butthole, so just preordered the hole caboodle.

    ...that’s a bummer. I thought it was happening already. Oh well, at least we have all those classics to listen to for eternity. :cool::thumbsup:

    Not a huge fan but I have reissues of their first 3 LPs. I've got LAT on deck to listen to again soon. Weird band, enjoy them when I'm in the mood.

    Stick Men with Ray Guns kinda fit the small category. Modern Whigs, also.

    Any more word on remasters?

    I will say the current pressing of Hairway sounds very nice on vinyl. Sure it is digital but nice sound.
