#597 Butthole Surfers – Locust Abortion Technician

I cannot believe the Butthole Surfers have an album on the list. I would think one Butthole album would be too many Butthole albums. I know their name from Eric. I remember him playing piouhgd. Locust Abortion Technician is their third album and it was before I met Eric. I am curious to see if I think they are any good. Their sound incorporates elements of psychedelia, noise rock, punk and black comedy.

The music in the first song is so weird and wonderful. I immediately think I might like this album. “Sweat Loaf” is very out of this world and it continues with the second song “Graveyard“.

This album is so interesting. I do not think the average radio listener will “get it”, which is too bad. It is really great. It is so different and unique. It makes me curious about their other albums. I think the hardest part is to pick the best songs for my list. 8/10.
