So, for the Hallucino-genetics summer tour, Primus is going to be playing all of Frizzle Fry for the 2nd set. For the last fall tour they did Sailing the Seas of Cheese for the 2nd set. I wonder what they have in store for Bonnaroo...

I've been listening to the Brown Album a lot lately. I could go for some of that stuff.
Although, I picked up the 'Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People' set and I've discovered a new appreciation for 'Southbound Pachyderm.' I was even inspired to whip out the sax and learn a decent little cover of it.
So maybe a little Punchbowl?
I have a funny feeling that Les is just going to show up and carpet bomb the crowd for the whole show though. At least that's been his m.o. at previous Bonnaroo outings...

if its anything like the fall tour first set will mainly be old stuff. since brain became the drummer on the latter material. then second set will be frizzle fry. les should kill it though like he did at the 1st bonnaroo.

I'm a Primus virgin; can somebody describe their music to me? I thought it was sort of hard-edged/metal-ish, but with the amount of enthusiasm I see for them on this board, I'm wondering if I got it all wrong.

there is a bit of hard to them but they are also funky jazzy etc.. but besides the music there is a whole asthetic to what les does on stage look beyond the moshing and hard bass lines and you'll see true geniuos.. they get bad reps sometimes because of some of the people who listen to them... see em they'll tear it up.. and i dont think there will be a set break... but there will be lots of costumes, video, guests and that beloved les strut...
Organized religion destroys who we are by inhibiting our actions... by inhibiting our decisions, out of... out of fear of some... some intangible parent figure who... who shakes a finger at us from thousands of years ago and says... and says, "Do it - Do it and I'll fu(kin' spank you."
The first year...I barely knew who Primus or Les Claypool was. The only thing I even knew by them was the Southpark theme song, though I was also was under the impression that the were hard, over the top, heavy metal.(yuk) On the first day, I saw a bumpersticker that read "Les Claypool is God" and thought "Stupid kid...everyone knows Eric Clapton is God", but by the end of the weekend I was a full fledged fan of Les Claypool and came away owning Flying Frog Brigade Live. His covers of Thela Hun Gingeet, Locomotive Breath and assorted Pink Floyd are awesome, his showmanship is superb, and even though I'm still not that familiar with Primus, that is one show that I will NOT be missing
