So here's something weird - the other day I was watching one of the greatest movies ever made, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, in which the awesome prog rock/metal band Primus makes a cameo. And now today, Logjam announced that Primus is playing a show at the Wilma in November. Coincidence? I THINK NOT!
Les Claypool was in town not too long ago playing with the Claypool/Lennon Delirium, but this should be a different (and also awesome) experience. Here's what they had to say via their press release:
Taking inspiration from a wide range of sources is part of what made Primus one of the most distinctive, innovative bands of the 1990s. The trio’s alt/punk/avant garde/psychedelic/country attack, along with Claypool’s surreal, fever-dream lyrics, resulted in some of rock’s unlikeliest hits, including “Tommy the Cat,” “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver,” and “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver.”
Starting as an underground phenomenon in San Francisco, the band’s cult grew rapidly. Such albums as Sailing the Seas of Cheese (1991), Pork Soda (1993), and Tales from the Punch Bowl (1995) all went gold and or platinum, and Primus toured with some of rock’s biggest names—U2, Jane’s Addiction, Public Enemy, Rush—and headlined the third Lollapalooza festival.
