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.

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.

Primus still has a few shows lined up for September, I wonder who is going to be drumming. I wouldn't think Tim will be back just yet and I'm pretty sure Jay Lane is busy hanging out with Bob Weir. Possibly someone completely new? Possibly Brain? Whoever it may be, I sure am glad I got to see the band with Tim last month since the 5 shows I saw previously were all with Jay, and really, even though Jay is technically the original drummer, Les, Ler, & Tim have always been the quintessential lineup.

Jord
07-22-2014, 01:28 PM
They are supposed to be dropping the Willy Wonka album anytime soon, the tour is all to support that, they'll be doing mixed sets followed by wonka sets. It will be interesting to see what happens, I heard something about november shows but I'm not sure.

I am forever grateful to Jay for being the guy who got Primus back in gear and touring Europe again after so long, but I do pray that sometime in the future they'll come back to the UK with Les, Ler and Tim. You cannot deny the power of this lineup.

I just saw them last month and they didn't play any of the Wonka songs. And I definitely haven't heard anything about them recording the Wonka stuff in the studio. Not calling you a liar, just curious what your source is because if they do record it that would be fucking awesome.

Les has mentioned it in a couple of interviews, there's bits of info over at the primus bull board forum. Word is that they were dropping the wonka album and taking it on the road, it'll be curious to see how they go about it all live without the frog brigade there, although I believe the frog brigade are playing on the album.

I am very much looking forward to this, not as much as a proper original Primus album, but this will be very interesting.

I hope they carry off the momentum of it and dive back in for a full on follow up album. I will always hope for an album in the vein of Animals Should Not Try To Act Like People as that's where Les, Ler & Tim left off in 2003 properly.

Very glad Herb pulled through and is recovering. The guy is powerhouse.

I'm watching a good quality video of the Chocolate Factory set live...and I gotta say, halfway through, not really feeling it. It's not bad, but it feels way more like any of Les' side projects than it does PRIMUS. I hate skerik, and overall the Fungi ensemble takes away from what I like about Primus...Les, Ler, and Tim doing their thing as a three piece.

imail724
08-01-2014, 11:46 PM
I love skerik! But fortunately for you, that was actually the "frog brigade ensemble" on nye, skerik isn't a part of this new "fungi ensemble"

Mr. Blaileen
08-02-2014, 12:32 AM
Thank the gods! I should clarify and mention that I'm a big fan of Les' side projects as well. To me, a lot of what makes Primus special is that it's made up of just three guys doing their thing. It just seems like this is a mash-up of his solo work and Primus.

I'll still give the new album a listen, of course.

Had no idea they were doing an entire album devoted to the music from Willy Wonka. And that they're going to doing a two-set tour that's half Wonka, half hits.

And that one of the dates actually lines up with where I'll be on tour.

So many things to be happy about now.

Awesome, I can see my head in a couple of those shots. Had rail, pretty much right in front of Les for this. Pretty awesome show. Was anyone else there?

The funny thing is that I had a really bad stomach-ache/nausea for the first 5-6 songs, and it was bad enough where I thought I might have to leave my spot and/or the show altogether. As soon as the first Aenima notes were played, I instantly felt better; and it lasted that way for the rest of the set. It was quite bizarre. I came to the conclusion that Tool can cure sickness.

I was at the solo show Saturday. It was great to see Primus again after so many years. It was also great to see Danny out of his element and that he's human after all.
First the good

Decent setlist with a decent mix of songs, it was a little heavy on seas of cheese, but I was ok with that. They also played for about an hour and a half. The jams weren't too long either which was nice. Danny played the songs pretty much verbatim with a little touch of his own style. Danny made a few mistakes here and there but I chalk that up to nerves as it was his first show.

The Bad.
The opening band, whatever their forgettable name was, was just AWFUL. a 3 piece trip hop band was not the way to warm that crowd up. The other shitty part was the opening band didn't even start until 11:10pm. this was hands down the latest show I've ever been too. it didn't get wrapped up until 2:10am
Now Danny's playing was pretty spot on minus forgetting how to end a few songs, but the way his drums were mixed was not flattering. either his toms weren't mic'd, or he was using the overhead mic technique unsuccessfully. Because you couldn't hear a lot of his fills, now they did correct this somewhat after the first few songs, but it still wasn't quite right.

Overall good show, 7/10 for sure.

Literal LOL when I read that, because yes. I'm usually very very nice to openers, but uggh. Not sure where you were in the crowd, but I've never seen/heard so much hate for an opener. It was advertised as "A Night with Primus" (was even on the posters), which I kinda just thought meant it'd be only them for a 90-120 min set.

The show was good. 7 out of 10 is about right, but I'd personally go to 8, just because it was a special night w/ Danny.

Not travelling specifically for Primus, but I'll be seeing them again with Carey in Denver. Anyone else gonna be at Riot Fest there?

I've been huge on Primus for a good few years now, and to be honest after the excitement that hit me when Herb came back, the whole Wonka thing was a bit meh - too much like solo Les as quoted from earlier in the thread, I couldn't agree more about the extra members. As well done as it all is, I just want to see the three of them KILLING IT. I'm praying that the next step they take is to record an album that is the spiritual successor to Animals Should Not Try To Act Like People.

That said, I've had my eye on the tour for a while now and they are passing by my way in Manchester again. I saw them last time and had a blast, but seeing the London setlist the next night left me sour - it was nearly twice as long and with more new stuff in - Still can't complain! I had tickets to all the Royal Albert Hall nights last time they were around and sadly couldn't make it so I've been kicking myself ever since. I was on the fence about going to see them this time around for some reason, but knowing it's the three of them together again especially with Herb, I just snapped some tickets up now. I'm absolutely psyched and prepping myself now with some classic Tour de Fromage.

Pissed about the Bullboard going down - Prawn Song just removed it one day and left it at that. Sucks!

Loving everything I've heard so far, but as the album is only gonna be a short one I'm not listening to any more songs that may come out beforehand until it's out. I wanna hear the whole thing as one - it sounds like the album will have continuous flow by the sound of the end of The Scheme. It's nice to hear the 6 string bass again on a Primus track.

There was a clip of 'The Storm' on Facebook and it had that stupid dobro in it, the one thing I could do without in Primus tunes.

Huge Primus fan (see: username), and even I'm shocked at how good this new stuff is. Waiting for Friday to listen to everything, but I've skimmed through most of the stuff and it's great. Green Naugahyde was pretty solid, but after the Wonka stuff, I wasn't sure I'd be on board for what they tried next.

Very pleasantly surprised.

So I got my hands on the new album and WOW, I was blown away at how good it is. Primus has always been a back burner band for me; I enjoy their music, but I wouldn't call myself a 'fan' by any means. I saw them open for TOOL back in 2016 and was amazed at how awesome they sounded live, but again I never went out of my way to listen to them. This year however I had the chance to get my hands on their latest album and I haven't been able to stop playing it. "The Storm" has to be my favorite track so far...that bassline is AWESOME and almost has a TOOL-esq feel to it. Perhaps this is the beginning of my relationship with Primus...we'll see though...

Decided to buy it last weekend and agree, new album is a decent listen.

Agreed- I hear some Tool and Rush influence at times.

It's a very solid listen. It's almost a shame it's so brief, but it works for what it is.

Been listening to this nonstop for several days. It's a damn good album. The Dream melody is hopelessly stuck in my brain. The boys over in TOOL should take note of this as well as recent nin output and be reminded of what it sounds like when folks legit move their ass on quality output.

i could be mistaken but i think Les spends time with who he tours with Geddy from Rush mention this and talking about bass playing including being in the Roll The Bones video, so the just getting off a tour with Tool it's no surprise there is some similarities there.

these new tunes are nice.
i grew up LOVING Primus and saw them 3 times in the 90s, but i just didn't really keep up after Tales From the Punchbowl. That one's still "the new one" to me, haha.

New tour with Primus and Mastodon hits the road in spring (http://ultimateclassicrock.com/primus-mastodon-2018-us-tour/)

I’m more than likely going to skip the Slayer show to see the date in Charlotte on May 19th.

After seeing Primus at Bonnaroo back in 2010 and then again as an opener for TOOL in 2016, I NEED to see this tour. These guys are some serious performers and put on one hell of a show.

All My Kin Out 8/31 On Sean Lennon’s Chimera Music

Mysterious Lost 1980s Recording Includes Members Of Primus

LISTEN & SHARE: Beanpole - "Farmer Loved An Onion" (https://tellallyourfriendspr.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=63f1674ecdb2a4574b77e600b&id=69443b8f4a&e=3ffa509bcc)









Rolling Stone has announced Beanpole's unreleased LP and shared the single "Farmer Loved An Onion". The LP, 'All My Kin', which features members of Primus and Spent Poets, will be out 8/31 on Chimera Music.

When speaking about the song, guitarist Larry LaLonde says, "To get the vibe of recording a Beanpole song, you have to place yourself in a secluded farm valley full of mutant hillbillies trying to recreate melodies that were found on a broken record of Disneyland ride music."

As for the album, Chimera Music's Sean Lennon states, "It's a concept album for post-modern America. It chronicles the epic tale of Chicken Boy and his dangerously interrelated family. Years of isolation have resulted in the birth of a child who is part man and part poultry. Despite obvious adoration for their uniquely feathered offspring, having fallen upon hard times they consider the unthinkable: will Chicken Boy be sacrificed to feed his hungry family?" Bassist Les Claypool adds, "If Fellini, Dali, and Captain Kangaroo got together in their teens and ate peyote, this is the album they would have recorded."


All My Kin is the strange and somewhat unbelievable album collecting the music of an artist by the name of Beanpole. “Starving artist” must have been their mode of recording as stories of farming, eating, and disfigured animal-human hybrids course throughout the record. Very little is known about Beanpole, but it is widely recognized by collectors that most of the music originated from the late 1980s and early 1990s. Some sources maintain Beanpole is still active, although evidence remains unsubstantiated.

Primus’ Les Claypool claims he attempted to release a decade’s worth of Beanpole recordings on his Prawn Song label in the ‘90s. We’re told that the tracks were delivered to the mastering studio on worn-out cassette tapes and dusty DATs. As legend has it, when Claypool played the mastered tracks to his distributor, the response from company executives was poor. As a result, Claypool was summarily dismissed from his business relationship with the distribution company, effectively ending his label. For nearly 20 years thereafter, the tracks were to remain forgotten.

Fast forward to 2016 when Claypool was touring with Sean Lennon as The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Les played the old, neglected recordings to Sean, who decided that the world was finally ready for Beanpole!

Ecstatic to be seeing Primus again in less than two weeks! This will be my 4th time seeing them, the first being Wakarusa 2012.
I was admittedly late to the Les Claypool party so it's no surprise this Beanpole project was way under my radar. Seems absolutely bizarre, I look forward to hearing more

Wow just got back from the Detroit show and they played their Peter Gabriel Intruder cover from the Miscellaneous Debris EP with Mastodon's drummer. Never ever expected to hear that one.

Tales from the Punchbowl is the only thing I might jump on, but what's up with the new cover art? It's probably better than the original, but still. I've already got non color versions of the rest (besides the covers albums obviously, and Antipop but the less I think of that album, the better)

Looking at the thumbnail with no text I wouldn't have even known that was the album.

Might grab Pork Soda, Tales from the Punchbowl and Animals Should Not Try To Act Like People.

This album is so so good. Only listened twice so far, but it hit all the right notes on those 2 listens. I loved their first album and played the hell out of it when it came out, but I think this one might be even better. Gotta spend some more time with it before I make that call though https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190223/7399f63fdb5a451bfd9603b583b5ea07.jpg
