No matter which line up or era, Primus can usually be relied upon for a great show. Les Claypool’s complex bass skills are almost unparalleled and the band’s fusion of hard funk, angular art rock and weird atonal jazz has continued to enthral a legion of fans.
In the summer of 1994, Sausage released their one and only album, ‘Riddles Are Abound Tonight’. A genuine treat for Primus fans, this was far more than a side project for Les Claypool – it was effectively a reunion of the first Primus line up featuring guitarist Todd Huth and drummer Jay Lane.
Primus visited the UK for a two short runs of shows supporting their ‘Green Naugahyde’ LP in 2012, but are set to return in June 2015 for something a little different. Already well received in the US, the classic line-up of Les, Ler and Herb will play three shows reinterpreting the soundtrack for the 1971 movie ‘Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory’ as per their own 2014 LP.
