The Butthole Surfers

 

The Butthole Surfers were formed by Gibby Haynes and Paul Leary in San Antonio, Texas in 1981. They've built up a notable following, and are one of the most famous alternative/punk bands. Their live shows are really an artistic event, embracing film, lighting, and even naked dancers.

The band's line-up has been fairly fluid, though longstanding members have been bassist Jeff Pinkus, drummers King Coffey and Teresa Taylor, with Haynes on vocals, and Leary on guitar. Mark Kramer (Bongwater and Shimmy Disc) was also a bassist in the band for a short time.

The band's music, whilst containing the expected hardcore, is certainly not one dimensional, and there's a psychedelic element - which is apparent just from their album covers!
