BUTTHOLE SURFERS: "The Lord Is A Monkey", "Entering Texas- Bar- B- Que Movie" ... (In Memory of Joe Christ)

Another posting for the "RCJ MUSIC/ ART'S HONOUR ROLL SOCIETY" here to honour some of the classic worx of one of Texas' finest in alternative music and art's the "Butthole Surfers" , and of course, another crew at the top's of my list in just about every category, especially in creativity and theme's. But I also wanted to post this in memory of an old buddy and fellow musician who passed away "Joe Christ", who was also a fan of the Buttholes worx, Joe was also an underground filmaker. The film is called "Entering Texas Bar- B- Que Movie" basically a spoof of the 1974 classic "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", and this star's the Butthole Surfers and some of their performance. The first video is another favourite of mine of course called "The Lord Is A Monkey" ... Enjoy!  : )


*****POST NOTE: On the first video below, there have been hundred's of interpretation's as to what the song's lyric's mean? First of all, let me tell you first hand, trying to figure out Gibby's and the Butthole's lyric's can be like pissing in the wind for some. So let me give ya an inside view on what this song is about ... it's basically about addiction ... being the "lord" as being what control's you, and the "monkey" being the "lord" that dominate's and feed's that addiction, driving your various lust's and vice's, from money making to running dope to passion's to self destruction, the "monkey" that get's on your back ....
