Butthole Surfers: Riding The Shock Wave

Mark Sinker, New Musical Express, 16 April 1988

IN TEXAS, even daylight isn't ordinary. You can stay indoors and sleep, hide from the noon-time sun that way, but the overlit world outside is filled with overlit people, and they'll get you in the end. With a bright, pitiless strength, they'll overwhelm you. It's no good trying to be ordinary there, to fit in.
