Jack White And Butthole Surfer Frontman Collaborate On Three New Tracks

Written by Mike Hohnen on February 5, 2013

NME has reported that the legendary Jack White has fused his majestic guitar skills with the vocal stylings of Gibby Haynes, perhaps better known as the frontman of The Butthole Surfers.

TBS were at the top of the alternative rock game throughout the 80s and 90s, though lost some of their traction once all the tweens came of age. However, they are sure to be thrust back into relevance now that Haynes and White will be releasing three tracks together.

The 3 jams will be compiled into one single release facilitated through White’s Third Man Records. The tracks include original pieces You Don’t Have to Be Smart and Horse Named George, as well as a cover of Adrenalin OD‘s Paul’s Not Home. That particular track first saw the light of day in 1982’s New York Thrash compilation, which also contained the first ever Beastie Boys singles.

The tracks will be released Tuesday, February 14th just in time for Valentine’s Day. If you’re stuck for gift ideas, there will be limited edition vinyl pressings of the tracks printed onto old medical x-rays, which White has dubbed “flex-ray disc”. But these will be very, very exclusive.

White seems to be following a similar path to Dave Grohl and enlisting a series of celebrated artists to join him in the studio such as Laura Marling, Tom Jones, Insane Clown Posse, Jeff The Brotherhood and Beck.

You can listen to a sample of Paul’s No Home below to see how it turned out.
