Influenced by early U.S. punk and hardcore, vocalist Thom Bone
, bassist/vocalist Bianca Butthole
, guitarist Blare N. Bitch, bassist Sharon Needles
and drummer Jerry Geronimo
formed Butt Trumpet
in L.A. The band's vulgar song material caused a Massachusetts town to consider banning Butt Trumpet's
major-label debut, Primitive Enema
, after a citizen heard her 12-year-old daughter listening to what the mother called "audio porn."
