  yeah, well the surfers royally fucked over t&g, absolutely. but they were just drug-addled shills for the big record company action is all. they wanted/needed the money and they didn't care who got hurt - they needed that fix, man. the record company wanted the back catalog cuz they were too cracked out to make anything that would sell. the big company wanted their investment back. so, the band became perfect pawns.

theblack metal dudes were silly fucked up twerps who drank the koolaid. they actually thought they were demons or something. the butthole surfers were just train wrecks slashing through the crowded malls of america. suicide bombers. truly dangerous crazies.

never killed anybody? never burned down churches? never ate human brains? frankly, i'm not so sure about that. certainly, they didn't BRAG about it. they probably did all those things, too, and never noticed...

i saw big black, scratch acid, gg allen, killdozer. i also saw psychic tv and the original public image johanna went, early survival research laboratories and i saw things far far far darker. but them surfers took the cake. really .

  man, i have a hard time thinking of the surfers as "goofy". i can't get my head around that one.

as i understand they were like that 24/7. they lived that life, period. that was THEM.

man, that's some bad acid, dude.

  a hit? yer kidding? who knew?

go back and listen to 'psychic, powerless... another man's sac." it's pretty amazing. try to imagine 'concubine" perfomred live.

or try to imagine "moving to florida" from "creamed corn from the socket of davis" ep performed live.

then imagine nude strippers, open flames and car crash films - with a shitload of cheap acid and heroin. man, it was difficult to see.

sorta gives me nightmares to think about it still. they were the real deal. and they paid the price, too, i might add.

  that's cool. we all have our opinions (sorta like belly buttons).

all i can say is that i've seen probably thousands of bands over the last 40 years and i saw the surfers several times at their absolute peak. they were the single most frightening and intense thing i've ever witnessed. and i used to judge a band solely on that criteria. that's what i sought out. and they were the best at it. totally psychotic and tight. scared the shit out of me. takes a lot for a band to scare the shit out of me...
