Gibby 'n Gwar

Gibby made an appearance in a sick little film by Gwar. Great accent.

Austin, this past weekend

Some very kind soul posted a few minutes of the Butthole Surfers show this past weekend in Austin. Next best thing...

P, 1993

Even though the series of these P videos taped in Austin in 1993 show no faces, it is worth the view just for the joke told at :33.

P features Gibby Haynes, Johnny Depp, BillCarter, Sal Jenco.

This video of P purports to be from 1994 but it looks like the same gig as the one labeled 1993. In any case, this is a great song, called Mr. Officer.

Fishing with Gibby and Friends

To hear Gibby's maniacal laugh over and over, in between bouts of fishing related chatter, watch this video of Gibby, Jeff Pinkus and Dean Ween on a boat somewhere in New Jersey.

Surfers On Tour

After the disappointing finish to an otherwise agreeable show in New York, the Butthole Surfers are playing more shows, but not in a city near me. I am totally willing to go to New Orleans but alas, at my far advanced age I know of nobody who wants to spend their weekend with me while I'm being a stupid fan while they gag on oysters and beer waiting for me to get over my excitement. So I will perish in New York while everybody else is having fun.

Here is the upcoming 2008 schedule that I will be missing out on. Cue the tears.

Sept 27 - Austin, TX, Stubbs
Oct 22 - Dallas, TX, Granada Theater
Oct 23 - Houston, TX, Meridian
Oct 24, New Orleans, LA, One Eyed Jacks
Oct 26, New Orleans, LA, The Voodoo Experience Festival
Dec 5-7, Minehead, England, The Nightmare Before Christmas

10 Minutes of Butthole Fun

Amazing 10 minutes of your life will be spent watching this little film. It ends with a great performance of Fast from Hairway to Steven.

Shame of Life

Great video from with the song that annoyingly gets stuck in your head very quickly.
Thank you Alex for pointing this out.

Joe Wenderoth and Gibby Haynes

An interesting performance with poet Joe Wenderoth from 2007 in Brooklyn at Issue Project. Wish I had been there.

Gibby on Fox News

Gibby is looking perfectly respectable in a vest and tie.

My New Blog

This blog is dedicated to my small but vague obsession with the Butthole Surfers which I have decided to start when I realize that my random postings are probably not appreciated by my regular readers.

I actually know very little about them, I haven't memorized their songs, and I don't have every one of their rare recordings, but I love their music and will share with you, other fanatics, what I find about them.

The good news is that they are touring and playing together again.
