Butthole Surfers - Hairway to Steven (1988)

Hairway to Steven is the fourth full-length studio album by American punk band Butthole Surfers, released in February 1988. All songs were written by the Butthole Surfers, co-produced by the Surfers and Ric Wallace, and mixed by Wallace. Hairway to Steven's title is an obvious parody of (or perhaps tribute to) Led Zeppelin's exceedingly popular hit, "Stairway to Heaven." Some of its tracks also make allusions to other famous musicians, such as the commonly acknowledged titles for "Jimi," referencing Jimi Hendrix, and "Julio Iglesias." Like the Surfers' previous releases, Hairway to Steven uses non-traditional instrumentation, extensive tape editing, and sound modulation. Unlike its predecessors, which relied almost exclusively on a foundation of electric guitar, bass, and dual drummers, it makes equally heavy use of the acoustic guitar. Hairway to Steven was recorded at one studio in a relatively short period of time. According to bassist Jeff Pinkus, the band had been performing most of these songs for years before recording them for this album. Many of the band's previous releases had been piecework affairs, recorded over several months in numerous studios, and their songs underwent far more in-studio development.
The Surfers opted to follow this album's blueprint on future recordings, entering the studio with more fully formed songs than they had in the past. Pinkus has expressed the opinion that these better-organized recording sessions stifled much of the spontaneous creativity that had propelled the group's previous albums.
