Rabbit Face [mp3] - The Chinese Stars

Ah-Ha [mp3], Cough Syrup [mp3], BBQ Pope [mp3] – Butthole Surfers

Though Pronto‘s instrumental Cheetah lullaby soothed my nerves a bit, I was still sinking deeper down into a Black Sunday mood….UNTIL ——-> Rabbit Face [mp3] from The Chinese Stars (off Heaven On Speed Dial, Anchor Brain) wormed through my ears, jerked at my heart rate and jazzed things up. I swear, I tried everything this morning – a healthy breakfast, a little yoga, a run through the neighborhood – but it took an injection from this Rhode Island can’t-give-a-shit corepunk quartet to satisfyingly spike the adrenalin flow today. Rabbit Face is loud and metally, like Butthole Surfers on a fieldtrip to a meth lab.

Now try The Chinese Stars’ Left Brain (video below) for a good needling of aural acu-punk-ture.

Listening to these guys made me yearn for my hometown twisted punk friends, the Surfers, who, incidentally, are touring the states (Gibby Haynes, Paul Leary, Jeff Pinkus, King Coffey and Teresa Taylor) and will land in LA mid-October. For naughty, gnarly, sweaty, Texas-style, drug-influenced listening pleasure, try the following:

Butthole Radio

Bootholes and Buttlegs, where you’ll get lost in the rabbit hole warp. maybe you’ll be able to listen to/download a mess of crazy mp3s of Butthole bites, live and otherwise. Try the link for Tejass-z. Those seemed to work pretty well.
