The Butthole Surfers might not be your first choice of a good band to play along with children, but it works reassuringly well.

The Paul Green School of Rock Music trains kids up with musical skills and stagecraft then puts them on for real, actual gigs.

The support act is a touring group of the “best of” the school's pupils, and they also join in during the headline act.

It's genuinely entertaining to see people who've been trained in stagecraft as well as musicianship, and even the massive section in the audience for parents didn't make it feel gimmicky.

Obviously they kept the back-projected crashes-and-surgery footage. Kids love that stuff, and Gibby is everyone's favourite uncle.

Get Electriclarryland if you want some easy listening, or Locust Abortion Technician if you're more into trying to like something other people will physically hate. Then, read 'Our Band Could Be Your Life' for more insight into their posterising worldview.
