This description from
Originally released by Hybrid Records in 1985, Jon Wayne's one and only recorded output, Texas Funeral
is one of those albums that many hold very dear. Nobody is indifferent
to it, they either don't know it or they gush at the mere mention of
it. Folks who haven't heard it in years can still quote from its lyrics
and recall their favorite bits. Though this album is charmingly lo-fi
and lyrically hilarious, much of its appeal stems from how little is
known about it. Rumor has it that Jon Wayne was none other than
Butthole Surfers mainman Gibby Haynes. I can neither confirm or deny
this, but it certainly bears all the surrealist Texan wit of the
Surfers. For many of you, hearing this again will flood you with
memories. To the rest of you I say, get ready to fall under the spell
of Jon Wayne and Texas.
