Suck on This for me, can't get enough of it. Sure, the others are more polished, but this one is just so good. And Herb is on fire!

Sailing The Seas of Cheese is probably my favorite Primus album with either Tommy the Cat or Jerry Was A Race Car Driver as their suckiest songs.

I remember the first time I saw Beavis and Butthead doing the Mudd video.  I thought hmm, this is kind of interesting and didn't dig any further.  Next came Claypool's South Park theme.  I was more interested in the cartoon than exploring Primus.  I didn't really connect with the band until I heard volume 2 of Les' Live Frogs.  That did it and my first acquisition was Animals Should Not Try To Act Like People.  Started to explore the band's previous releases and that was all she wrote.  I think if I had heard Frizzle Fry when it first came out, I might well have become a fan back then.

Primus sucks! Love 'em. Sailing... is my fave album and I have too many fave songs. When I think of Primus the first two things that come to mind are Mellotrons and Tom Waits. Well, here's Tom Waits playing a Mellotron on a Primus song.
 
 
BTW, am I the only one who thinks they deserve more than "prog related" status?

Frizzle Fry, Seas Of Cheese and Tales are my favorites, but Pork Soda is an often overlooked gem - by far the darkest Primus album.  Took me awhile to really appreciate that one.



BRUTAL.

Primus was one of the bands that helped point my way towards King Crimson, as well as giving Peter Gabriel a deeper inspection.  Favorite Primus album?  Frizzle and Cheese are close.  I still need to get myself a copy of Suck on This and Antipop.

What, did you hear the Frog Brigade's cover of Thela Hun Ginjeet on one of the Live Frogs discs and decide to check out the original too? Tongue

No.  I just heard Primus cite Crimson as an influence.  I'll track down that cover now thank you very much! Smile

There are two Live Frogs volumes; one of them is a live cover of the entire Animals album, the other is various covers of other groups (a bit more Floyd, King Crimson, some of Les' groups, etc).  Both are pretty good.

Review in today's Times of Primus's gig at London Brixton Acdemy some time this week.  Also mentions release of their first album in 11 years, Green Naugahyde in September and the line-up is Claypole, Larry LaLonde and Jay Lane. Slightly pissed, since this is the first mention I've seen of Primus being over in the UK.
The best eclectic music on the Web,8-11pm BST/GMT THURS.

Tell me Dick, who is Claypole? Wink  I'm really excited for the new album, I've heard word that the sound is going to be somewhat reminiscent of Frizzle Fry, which is probably my favorite Primus.

As well as a typing erriot, also a pool when it gets deeply chilled out it becomes a pole (as in North Pole) (comeon, it is a Monday...............)
