The Buttocks


Voyage to Uranus - Ted botches the lyrics while J.J.Jammer puts in an amazing series of psychedelic solos in this "Dream Beguine" tour de force. Features news soundbytes from the Voyager flyby of Uranus in January 1986.

"I have to tell you again how absolutely f*cking in awe I am when you do stuff like [Voyage to Uranus]. The speeded up Bob Ryan and others plus all the whacked out drug stuff (if only) just make the song that much more awesome." -- Keith Richmond

High Culture

Wikipedia's article: The Cultural History of the Buttocks. - "Sexualization of the buttocks has occurred throughout history, especially of the female buttocks."

"It is like a barber's chair, that fits all buttocks---the pin buttock, the quatch buttock, the brawn buttock, or any buttock." -- Shakespeare

"Arcadio suffered from shoes that were too large, from his patched pants, from his female buttocks." -- Gabriel Garcia Marquez

"Gorbachev sings tractors: Turnip! Buttocks!" - Milo Bloom



Butt Festival '83
By: Buttocks III  (J.J., Beater, Ted)
Recorded: 12/22/83    Released: 12/83
Format: Random; Seemingly Dolby B, but the hiss and the "music" are 
        virtually indistinguishable
Songs: Tribute to Gang Green, Stairway to Heaven, Ode to Penalologists, 
       Tribute to the CCCB, Foxey Lady, Purple Anus, Dazed Anus, (Side 
       2), Undressed Man, Tribute to WGAY, Whole Lotta Love.  
Listening Notes: 
       For this recording, Ted used his patented "way too much dynamic
       range compression" technique.  Anytime the band is silent, the
       noise rushes up to be louder than the band.  It's like listening
       to the ocean crashing on the shore.
Anal Connection
By: Buttocks III  (J.J., Beater, Ted)
Recorded: 2/17/84    Released: 2/84

By: Buttocks III  (J.J., Beater, Ted)

Key Moment: Ted drops the tape recorder into the engine compartment of

            destroyed is fantastic.
