"Did I just turn into Layne Staley?" The Butthole Surfers’ Paul Leary recently discovered that his head was replaced in that long-circulating Kurt Cobain–meets–Layne Staley fake.

Watch Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes Discuss Book About City Gardens Club on “The Daily Show”: Haynes told a story about getting “bitched at by a hormone-crazed soccer mom” after a show for his on-stage behavior. His retort: “What are you doing after the show?”

Via the Onion A.V. Club:

The ice cream-related attack you’re about to witness—or maybe just witnessed—was not planned in advance, though I realize it looks perfectly staged. Yes, we had legendary noise-rock band The Melvins out in Chicago’s beautiful Humboldt Park, and yes, we had the spankin’ new Jeni’s ice cream truck set up as the backdrop. But the audience, and Buzz Osborne's unleashing of the word “free”—that was just the beautiful hand of fate. The song they covered seemed perfectly inappropriate for the occasion: It's "Graveyard" by Butthole Surfers, and that’s Surfers bassist Jeff Pinkus rocking out alongside Buzz, Dale Crover, and Coady Willis. A new Melvins album featuring original drummer Mike Dillard—Tres Cabrones—will be out in November. Enjoy this beautiful, innocent mayhem.
