The Butthole Surfers

Fresh off hitting the 60 listener mark we decided to chase them all away by going through the history of Texas experimentalists The Butthole Surfers.

Nick and Ewan are joined by Butthole virgin Aron T White and stalwart Brendan Emmett Quigley to see whether Nick's favourite band hold up to scrutiny.

Aron describes the experience like spending a year in India, Brendan rambles on about Van Hagar, Nick can't find a bottle opener and Ewan forgot to hit record on his Zoom session.

About the Podcast

Temporary Fandoms
Temporary Fandoms: The music immersion podcast
Temp Fans is a podcast that explores the complete studio discography of legacy, popular, or downright obscure artists. We started out as a Facebook group where we listen to an album a day by a chosen artist, from start to finish, even the bad bits. And that's what this podcast is.

Join us as we dive through the good, the bad and the what? Take your time and listen along. Feel free to pause us and go listen on Spotify or wherever to the albums. Or go to our Spotify playlist where you will find the pod spliced up and inserted into a curated playlist of selected tracks.

To date Nick and Ewan have been joined by an ever growing roster of guests, who all have one thing in common; they want the chance to talk about artists that inspire passion in them. That's not to say this is a gushfest, there are plenty of dissenting opinions on the way.
