Track of the Day: Butthole Surfers – Pepper

The scene; Monday morning walk through the streets of North London with the sun shining down on the sunglasses. A white t-shirt almost see through from perspiration and music being played above the recommended safe volume levels direct into ear.

The track; Pepper by Butthole Surfers, from the album Electriclarryland, is immediately being transferred from sound into a strut and an internal monologue relating to the self-reflective lyrics that only a Monday morning can truly relate to.

I don’t mind the sun sometimes, the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look through other people’s eyes

Although this particular track wasn’t released until 1996, after a certain Kurt Cobain had checked out from living amongst us mere humans, the band themselves were high on his list of favourite artists.

And what better way to kick off ‘Track of the Day’ feature by The Bungalow DJs.
