RIP Teresa Nervosa

Photo from King Coffey's twitter feed: “Teresa Taylor, seen
here in attack mode. My favorite drummer of all time. My
mentor, my friend, my sister from another mister.” 

Butthole Surfers drummer Theresa Taylor, aka Teresa Nervosa just passed away. She was co-drummer with high school friend King Coffey, aka Jeffrey Coffey— they were in marching band together in high school.

For a time when I was living in LA, working as a messenger, I had four cassettes in my car: John Coltrane Live At Birdland, Coltrane Live At the Village Vanguard... and Psychic, Powerless... and Locust Abortion Technician by the Butthole Surfers. 

Here she is in the movie Slacker:
