Listen: Mr. Peppermint & Muffin -- "Yellow Bird"
|Mr. Peppermint and friends.|
Then come back this away and click after this here jump for another treat: An audio clip of Mr. Peppermint and his trusty sidekick Muffin performing the song "Yellow Bird" (complete with a shout-out to Haynes' son Gibby's Butthole Surfers), as recorded in 2002 by Reid Robinson and Mark Ridlen for a 2003 compilation called Texotica, Vol. 1.
Says Robinson of his interaction with Haynes at the time of the recording nine years back: "He was a gentle, kind, and bright person, who influenced a lot of people for the better here."
Robinson also says he'll be putting together a memorial show for Haynes in the coming weeks. We'll keep you posted on that front, for sure.
