The Les Claypool Frog Brigade biography
Leslie Edward Claypool - Born September 29, 1963 (Richmond, USA)

As the name implies, The Les Claypool Frog Brigade was formed by Primus Bassist Les Claypool. Originally formed in 2000 to play the Mountain Aire Festival in Northern California as "Claypool's Thunder Brigade", concert organizers compelled Mr. Claypool to change the name fearing the word thunder would conjure thoughts that they were promoting heavy metal for their festival. The band originally featured Claypool on bass, Primus bandmate Tim Alexander and Jack Irons on drums, Marc "Mirv" Haggard on guitar, and Erik "Skerik" Walton on saxophone. In August of the same year, the more permanent line-up was settled consisting of Eenor Wildeboar and Todd Huth on guitars, Jeff Chimenti on keyboards, and Jay Lane on drums to compliment the remaining Claypool and Skerik.

Claypool's Frog Brigade would only release one studio album of original material and two live albums consisting of primarily covers and material initially written for a reunion line-up of original Primus members called "Sausage". The cover material included King Crimson and multiple Pink Floyd songs, including Animals in its entirety. The 2002 studio album, "Purple Onion", was far different from the live material, frequently bordering on RIO unorthodoxy. Claypool's signature precision grimy quasi-funk bass playing is always apparent in The Frog Brigades material.
