excellent. i've been at a primus reunion lately so i'll talk about the mastermind behind that band; les claypool. you will find absolutely nothing even remotely similar to the sound of primus from the decade of the 90s and beyond. you couldn't call the sound explicitly 'grunge' or 'metal' or 'rock' or even 'pop', and you'll find none of the standard formulas for commercial song writing present anywhere in the music. these guys were a power trio (like rush) of very talented musicians with very unique style. the music is heavily bass driven... the bass guitar being the lead instrument... which was almost unheard of in bands from the 90s which were primarily guitar bands. claypool - vocalist, bassist and band leader - drives the bass like it's a fucking bulldozer, and his drummer 'herb' was probably the best drummer to come out of the 90s. the music is elementally strange and aggressive, but with comedic properties that sets the band aside from the typical stereotypes other bands fall under. remember, the 90s was the decade when the glamour rock of the 80s was changing into something more masculine (make-up and big hair was out), but the bands still retained that over exaggerated, histrionic image of trying to be 'cool' with all the posing and microphone love-making that went on in the videos and on stage. with primus (and any of the other claypool projects) you see none of this. in fact, you'd find something diametrically opposed to this; claypool dressed in overalls, stomping around the stage in work boots, popping his bass and singing in some strange cartoonish redneck voice. there's really nothing like it anywhere... and this is what i have an eye and ear for; the truly unique, the truly exceptional, the truly original. stone temple pilots, alice in chains, nirvana, pearl jam, sound garden, et al., are great... but they are not on the same plane as primus. i'll give you a tour in the next several days... but you have to promise to listen, man. it's an acquired taste... something that requires a certain kind of personality (which you might have), and that's what we're going to find out. okay, so here's one from 'sausage', which was a side project by claypool. similar sound as primus, but slightly nuanced due to a different drummer and guitarist....

wikipedia wrote:Regarding the band's genre, Claypool has stated "We've been lumped in with the funk metal thing just about everywhere. I guess people just have to categorise you". MTV suggests that Primus is "a post-punk Rush spiked with the sensibility and humor of Frank Zappa". Les Claypool himself once described their music as "psychedelic polka." Spin have labelled Primus as "pranksters" and an "unlikely gold-selling white trash purveyor of hard-ass pinballing funk metal".


lol, great description. here's one from 'frizzle fry", the album prior to 'sailing the seas of cheese'. ever hear chords strummed like that on a bass? and that break at 3:50 is tight as fuck, man.

nice. you're in, bahman. there are a few essentials you'll need to hear before you complete your initiation. here are two of them. btw, they do an outstanding cover of pink floyd's 'have a cigar' on that same album you just linked to, if you haven't already listened to it.

this one is absolutely brilliant, bahman. a warning though; once you enter into the mind of les claypool, you'll never be the same. it's music from some parallel universe that shouldn't be here on our earth.

Even nothing, is something.
If one is to live balanced with expectations, then one must learn to appreciate the negative as well, to respect darkness in its own home.

All smoke fades, as do all delicate mirrors shatter.

"My ancestors are smiling on me, Imperials. Can you say the same?"

"Science Fiction today ~ Science Fact tomorrow"

Change is inevitable, it can only be delayed or sped up. Choose wisely.

Truth is pain, and pain is gain.

Yeah me too, classic rock is one of my top favorite genres.

Especially psychedelic culture and music.
I am still happy I got to see Roger waters us and them tour in my lifetime, would love to see them together again but who knows if they ever will.

music is a direct conduit to the soul of a people and must be forced to voice the spirit of the age. today we have no time to be sentimentalists, gentlemen, for ours is an age of anxiety, arrogant noise and distortion, and we must embrace futurism to quicken the age and make it sick with itself. this is the only way to cure it. not to stop it, but to speed it up. today the music industry has become like one of those farm animal exhibits at the fair... the stench and cacophony is so bad you turn around and come back before you make it half way through. cRap music, country music, pop music, all of it, a silly cartoonish caricature of an uncreative age full of hubris and sick with itself. no, gentlemen. the task of the musician today is to make uncomfortable and destroy, not to write something you can listen to with the windows rolled down on a sunny saturday morning on your way to the lake. we must keep moving forward if we are going to stop this silly disaster before it becomes a serious matter and wrenches the soul permanently from the very heart of mankind.

this is what your world sounds like, today. are you proud of this? do you conveniently ignore it and retreat into your study to seal the door and listen to gladys knight where you feel safe? well you're not safe, gentlemen, and this is something you must have the courage to face:
