Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole is a five track EP by Martha Wainwright. It was released independently in 2004.
Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole was inspired by Wainwright's father, Loudon Wainwright III. She wrote the track as a response to her father’s way of writing songs about his family, rather than tending to them. Despite the sentiment, she collaborated a year earlier with Loudon on the song "You Never Phone" on his So Damn Happy album.
The EP was released in the UK as a 4 song EP (When The Day Is Short omitted) on the Drowned in Sound label.
"Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole" was used at the end of the second episode in season three of the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black.
The review in PopMatters calls the EP "a rebellious introductory stance for an artist looking to provoke or silence potential critics" and states that Wainwright is "as different from her brother as her brother is different from their father, but like both men, she’s fiercely honest and stubbornly candid". AllMusic write that "Wainwright's husky voice has matured into a thing of real beauty, and her ability to sound both majestic and totally wrecked helps to humanize each track".
