Perhaps the Butthole Surfers' best moment (and therefore their least eloquent and considered), Hairway to Steven is not a concept album about a dude called Steven and his many hairs. It's actually a nice bolt of punk rawk and psych turned into liquid gold pop music -- and its closer is called "Fart Song". You guys. Stop it.

Hairway To Steven by Butthole Surfers

8/10 Jack 1st February 2015

An exhilirating, merciless, death defying leap of rock'n'roll derring-do which, for all of the album's shrieks and groans, somehow refines that slab of crude, turgid gold that was Locust Abortion Technician. On Hairway to Steven, the Buttholes have revealed their whole bag of dirty tricks - tortured guitarwork, lyrical acrobatics, psychobilly call-and-response, mangled sound compressors - in all their stupendous glory. This delicious, undigested smorgasbord of musical mayhem features many spooky and majestic bits, but for me the part that puts the spice in the chicken is the gently winding melody of the second half to 'Jimi,' where the dwarves whisper to chanting birds, a cock crows languidly, and bowling pins crash to the meter of a gently ebbing tide. HTS is an album well worth a Cadillac drive through the desert southwest on a bellyful of mescal, volume cranked to the big swirling sky, as you hallucinate ten-foot tall Johnny on the dashboard.
