Synopsis

Amazon.com
With Rembrandt Pussyhorse the Butthole Surfers didn't really get any weirder than they were on Psychic... Powerless... Another Man's Sac, they just became more entrenched in their own sonic world. Rembrandt is demented, for sure, but where it excels is in the realm of experimental technique, playing with tapes, overlaying disembodied voices and new instrumental combinations atop an increasingly warped rhythmic soundscape, and singing intentionally freaky songs in a very freaky way. Throughout Rembrandt, the band is enmeshed in dense or droning (or both) areas where the rants are unbuckled and Gibby Haynes's voice is unleashed in its characteristically manic, slow wail. With the Cream Corn from the Socket of Davis EP appended on the CD, this episode in the Buttholes' 1980s postpunk menagerie is fleshy and fully important. --Andrew Bartlett

CD Reviews

REMBRANDT PUSSYHORSE
S. F. Decky | western mass | 03/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the most complex and intelligent CD to come out of the '80's post-punk scene. The Buttholes were funny and violent and weird both before and after REMBRANDT PUSSYHORSE, but they were never as cohesive. This is not a scary CD, it's just powerful.

The addition of the CREAM CORN ep is nice but it messes up the tone.

"This was the first Butthole Surfers' album I bought on my own; a friend had introduced me to them a few months before with "Independent Worm Saloon" and "Pioughed", so I felt I was ready to venture into the unknown, unassisted. The reverbed drums and the backwards fiddle on "Creep In The Cellar" should have warned me away, but it made me crave more; years later, when I found out the secret behind the fiddle, makes me more appreciate its presence and it's vitality to the song. Then, what completely blew me away was "American Woman", absolutely the finest cover song ever recorded by any band. As for more insight, I'll have to update this once I get my new copy of the CD in the mail, since I lost the tape I had and it has been a while since I heard this album..."

"REMBRANDT PUSSYHORSE is the 2nd full-length by the Butth*le Surfers. I do prefer this over LOCUST ABORTION TECHNICIAN. I just think there is more variety, more spaceyness, & overall better songs(besides Human Cannonball on Locust). Yes, REMBRANDT PH is really a lot of experimentation, even more so than other Surfer albums. This Re-release adds the Cream Corn EP. Some different instruments are on this which include a piano, a organ, and a violin played backwards on opening track: "Creep In the Cellar." It sounds really great and makes for an interesting listen, maybe challenging listen for some.
It's really hard to describe their music to someone who has never heard it before: LSD madness trip psychadelia post-punk? Maybe I don't know just really spacey, seems fresh compared to other bands Iv'e heard in the '80s. A band that may have been influenced came out around the same time that I can think of is Scratch Acid.
I love lead-vocalist Gibby Haynes' manic screams all over the album.
There are two songs that always bring a smile to my face when I hear them, "Moving to Florida," & "Perry" psychotic laughter in this song; Gibby also says Cancer about six times & yells; a little crazy sure, but funny too. This also features a cover of "American Woman" w/ supercompressed drums. "Mark Says Alright" features a dirgy heavy bass put to a female pit-bull barks!
Just psychotic and nuts! all around. -4 stars
