Butthole Surfers - The Hurdy Gurdy Man



So this is a post to make up for the fact that i said nothing about seeing the surfers 2 days ago 6/24/08.

It had been a long time since i saw them and even with the school of rock kids storming the stage from time to time they were pretty damn cool. There was some talk about it not being a full band w/ Mr. Leary having other obligations so it was a happy moment when i found out the FULL band would be gracing the stage. And his guitar playing by the way was on point.

I didn't really watch hunchback i was too busy drinking warm beer as the beer coolers at the lanes took a shit but folks seemed to enjoy them and i missed Delicious but it was cool to catch up with guitar player Andre who, by the way, used to make thee most excellent HOT salsa ever when he owned a health food store in Red Bank back in the day... Man I miss that shit!

Anyway, here's a little bonus: The Butthole Surfers doing Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man from 1990.

there really is no need to even try and explain or tell this bands tale is there?
If you don't know.... well.... i won't even go there.

Enjoy!

I just watched the movie 'Zodiac' about the Bay Area serial killer in the 60's/70's, and Donovan's version of this song was featured prominently in some creepy scenes...

Didn't know about this version - thanks for the heads up.
