Primus (sucks)

Post by hellboy » Mon Jul 31, 2017 9:50 pm

Appears we don't have a Primus thread (that I could find) and today they announced a http://atorecords.shop.musictoday.com/d ... 8335_97953, so seemed worth starting one:
The Desaturating Seven

The first studio LP with the classic Primus lineup with Les, Ler and Herb since 1995's Tales From The Punchbowl.

“Many years ago when my children were little kidlets scurrying around the place wreaking havoc and whatnot till it was time for bed and book time, my wife turned them on to a book called “The Rainbow Goblins” by Ul De Rico,” Claypool explained. “The dark imagery and beauty of the art struck me immediately and I thought, ‘this would make good fodder for a piece of music.’ The use of color and darkness both in the paintings and the writing was compelling and now, near two decades later, the metaphor of greed, gluttony and deceit vs unity of the masses is eerily relevant. I brought the notion to the Primus guys and they were all for it. Plus, I figured it's about time someone brought ‘Goblin Rock’ back to the fold.” -- Les Claypoo

Primus sucks!!
- You like noisy music?
- Yes. The louder the better. Stops me from thinking.
- You don't like to think? What do you like?
- Never thought about it.

Sounds good. I also like the return of the old logo from the Frizzle Fry / Sailing The Seas Of Cheese eras.

Ler Lalonde is such an underrated guitar player. Definitely a 70s prog sound that I am very fond of. I'm also loving some of the track lengths for this album of 7 songs.

Larry is definitely one of my favorite players - would make my top 10 for sure.

Being that they're such a big influence on these guys, I'd love to see the new album go full Rush

For sure. The Seven is only a 3 minute song and it breathes. Nice instrumental section with that Rush/King Crimson sound. I'm excited to hear what a couple 8 minute tracks and an 11 minute closer will do.

I wonder if Tool would ever do one of these?

I've been saying for YEARS Tool need a custom pinball machine, I even was considering doing a VIP to just ask Adam that (And to ask if they would ever consider releasing their albums without that whinging idiot ruining the instrumentals)

Edit: $7,995 US, fucking hell, I could never justify that

Yeah, it's pretty expensive. US$8k and it looks like a pretty functional Pinball machine rather than something fancy. Though still a very cool collectors item, no doubt.
