    Got to see them in Albany, NY this past September. Great show! Almost as good as when I saw Les Claypool and his Fancy Band in Tempe, AZ back in 2006.

    Yeah, saw them in NYC this past tour and had a great time. First set was really nice and the album in the second set was fun too (although I'd prefer to just have 2 sets of randomness rather than knowing what the next song is going to be). Personally, I think the new album is fantastic and a great return to form after so many years away.

    Here's one I didn't expect, Jay Lane's out, and Tim 'Herb' Alexander is back in.

    I think it's inevitable that Tim will go again, but potentially the band are hitting the studio again in November, and I'm hoping we get the true spiritual successor to Animals Should Not Try To Act Like People.

    Strange times!

    Why aren't there more Primus fans around these parts? Figured since they were big around the same time as NIN, they would have more crossover fans. Top 3 bands for me, for sure.
    Herb news is pretty interesting indeed, especially the part about a possible new album coming soon.

    I'm a Primus fan! I saw them 3 times when i was a teenager. It amazes me how HEAVY they sound live. I like it when they play Eleven.

    Primus sucks!

    Definitely one of my most listened to bands but I've been out of the loop for quite some time. Green naugahyde made me dive back but it didn't last long. Don't know what it is, but this band is special and I have to be in the very mood for it. Just like Beck and Ween.

    The halucinogenetics DVD is one of my most favorite live DVDs to this day and I'll pop it in every now and then eventhough I don't spin the records that much. Sailing the Seas of Cheese ranks fairly well among my life time albums, though.

    Haven't seen them live unfortunately...

    I highly recommend you do! I've seen them live more than any other band and I will still gladly buy a ticket every single time they come to town, or any other Les project. The man just knows how to entertain a crowd and god damn can he play that 4-stringed piece of furniture of his.

    ive seen primus 12x (96-2013), les solo 2x and duo de twang once. all great shows, cant wait to see if they put together another new album with tim. the band has a certain air about itself when he's in the band. i sometimes viewed it as them fucking around a bit less and making more classic 3-piece centered primus.
