Few bands can lay claim to homing such a unique combination of instrumentation, style, voice, and energy as Bay Area punk-funk-fusion trio Primus. They attained this distinction almost immediately after forming in the mid-’80s, fronted by virtuoso bassist Les Claypool and his twisted tenor. The band brought original drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander back for their 2014 Willy Wonka-inspired Primus and the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, and just announced the release of their ninth studio record, The Desaturating Seven, reported to be inspired by a children’s book called The Rainbow Goblins. Lead single “The Seven” is vintage Primus, with staccato/tapping bass-guitar interplay and general bizarro-world lyrics. Whether tackling quirky funk-metal on early classics like Sailing the Seas of Cheese or Frizzle Fry or going full psychedelic shroom trip on Tales from the Punchbowl, Primus unites fans of musical technicality and the absurd in equal measure.
