Every now and then, you come across a band that genuinely stand alone as a real musical one-off and Primus fit that exact bill. Renowned for their live performances, they hit the road again for a national tour with special guests, The Dean Ween Group.
Primus are responsible for some of the most cutting edge and original rock music of the 1990’s. They were strictly an underground phenomenon that refused to be pigeonholed – merging alternative, punk, country, roots rock, and experimental music. Couple that with Claypool’s penchant for witty and often humorous storytelling lyrics, it made them a genuinely intriguing proposition. In the years between their third and fourth albums, their cult grew rapidly, and they fully infiltrated the mainstream.
