Turned Out A Punk

Damian Abraham has been many things... the singer of a critically acclaimed band, a failed VJ and food network host, one of the minds behind TV's "The Wrestlers", parent of 3... and undeniably, a punk music obsessive. Each week, he sits down and chats with an interesting person from various walks of life to find out how their world was influenced and changed by the discovery of a novelty genre that supposedly died out in 1978... PUNK!



Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers)

Episode 407:
Let's drop some acid, burn some bridges & let our freak flag fly because Butthole Surfers' PAUL LEARY is here! Listen in as Damian talks to the Texas guitar god about being in one of punk's wildest bands & beyond. From a former friend smashing Sid Vicious' face, to the Butthole Surfers' obsession with Michael Stipe, to the dangers of shotguns on stage, to Billy Gibbons lunching with Culturcide: this is not to be missed!  

Also, don't miss Paul's fantastically strange new solo record on Shimmy Disc: "Born Stupid", OUT NOW!
