“Let’s Go to Hell: Scattered Memories of the Butthole Surfers” book announced

The Butthole Surfers remain one of the most enigmatic bands in the history of rock music. Most of their records have no information of any kind, and often with the suggestion that you play them at 69 rpm. They lived like nomads through much of the 1980s, and built their reputation upon tours that never ended, and shows that resembled hedonistic acid tests. They left a heap of former band members in their wake, and have often alienated as many fans as they’ve attracted. For the first time ever, the band presents the complete story of one of the most controversial and dangerous bands to have emerged from the ashes of the punk rock movement.

Let’s Go to Hell: Scattered Memories of the Butthole Surfers compiles the scattered memories into the first comprehensive overview of the band. Featuring exclusive interviews, tons of rare and unpublished photographs, and analysis of the band’s vast recorded (and unrecorded) efforts, Let’s Go to Hell finally tells the story that was thought (and often hoped) would never be told.

The book is available in 7 x 10 economy color paperback and 7 x 10 economy color casebound glossy hardback.

The book was written by James Burns who has been running the Butthole Sufers Anal Obsession archive for many years. He founded Cheap Drugs Records in 2000. Let’s Go to Hell is the ninth release of the label, and first book to bear the Cheap Drugs name.
