Biography

Primus is all about Les Claypool; there isn't a moment on any of their records where his bass isn't the main focal point of the music, with his vocals acting as a bizarre side-show. Which isn't to deny guitarist Larry LaLonde or drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander any credit; no drummer could weave in and around Claypool's convoluted patterns as effortlessly as Alexander, ...

PRIMUS Antipop CD

Amazon.co.uk Review

Antipop, indeed. Primus, led by mad genius/bassist/vocalist Les Claypool, enjoyed past US radio success with "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" and "Wynonna's Big Brown Beaver". And on Antipop, Primus's usual staccato freneticism and rhythm-propelled tunes are as compelling, demanding, and provocative as ever. Like Mr. Bungle, another oddball Northern California outfit, Primus's humor is omnipresent, though not in a Weird Al way, despite the fact that Claypool's nasal delivery is not unlike Mr. Yankovic's. Most of Antipop is patented Primus funk-pop, what with a song about "sniffing paint since the seventh grade" ("Lacquerhead") and the autobiographical title track ("I am the Antipop / I'll run against the grain 'til the day I drop"). Still, there are a few departures. The spacey, seemingly deliberate Pink Floyd homage "Eclectic Electric" is cool, as is the very Tom Waits-like "Coattails of a Dead Man". --Katherine Turman

An definite improvement over the previous drab, boring dullness that was 'The Brown Album'. After the poor reception of that album, Primus seem to have been the kick up the behind. Here they return to form with what sounds like a eclectic fusion of the early 90s 'Frizzle Fry' and the infamous 'Pork Soda'. Primus are letting you know that they're back and they mean business, and they certainly don't disappoint!

I was at the height of my Primus fandom when Antipop was released and found it a bit of a headscratcher. It was if the uniqueness of this famously unique trio had been stripped away leaving a rather run-of-the-mill late '90s hard rock/metal band. Even the title and album cover, and the fact it has a bunch of famous guest musicians, didn't scream Primus to me. In recent years, after their studio reemergence with Green Naugahyde and their 2012 concerts in the Royal Albert Hall, my interest in the band had been reignited enough that I returned to Antipop, and I now found myself enjoying it more than I did back in those dark pre-millennium days. It has dated badly and contains a few songs I consider their worst (Mama Didn't Raise No Fool, Electric Uncle Sam...) but it's highlights are wonderful. I've always loved Laquer Head, which has about the most insanely complex bassline you're likely to hear in popular music, and Coattails Of A Dead Man - another Tom Waits collaboration 8 years on from Tommy The Cat which has an awesome, creepy atmosphere. Not a classic LP but certainly not without it's moments.

Format: Audio CD
This is a very dissapointing album. Primus have departed almost entirely from their sinister, extremely alternative style in order to produce this mish-mash of over-produced by-numbers Primus tunes. As has been quipped many times before, it is ironic that they chose to name their most commerically viable release "Antipop."
As usual, Les' bass playing is outstanding. Laquerhead, despite Fred Durst's influence, is easily the album's best track. His lyrics and occasionally vocals, however, are dismal. Either pretentious (something I never dreamed Primus would ever be) or embaressingly ham-fisted, I don't think I'll ever listen to this album without cringing. Ler never really impresses with his guitar lines, and Brain is similarly mediocre. The extra musicians seem to dominate their tracks, and we're left with very questionable combinations of style. The production values too, cause great concern. Throughout, few tracks flow from one into the other, and listening from start to finish is choppy and incoherent. This is not a rewarding Primus album in the long-term. Few tracks lack the punch and charm that honestly require repeated listens.
For a healthy demonstration of everything that this album isn't, buy Pork Soda, Frizzle Fry or Seas of Cheese. All three are indisputably excellent, and tower above Antipop in every respect.

the progressive syncopated funk/rock/flamenco stylings of les claypool on bass are perhaps the most unique angle on any instrument i have encountered to date, he custom makes his own basses, uses whammy, flamenco and tremolo techniques to define his style and on occasion traverses the double bass, although this is less apparent on anti-pop. this album features a surprising list of guest co-writers, which is the main essence of the album itself, and helps confer primus' unique ability as musicians. the guitar workings of tom morello works surprisingly well with les claypool, the song "lacquer head" was co-written by fred durst, "natural joe" co-written by matt stone, and various others make for an extremely interesting and indulgent piece of work from one of the most unique and talented bands around to date.

PRIMUS are total brave crazy legends. The bass sounds of Les Claypool are so hugely influential, and also guitaist Larry Lalonde and even Brain the drummer. This album is kinda unbelievably almost a decade old-or more. Finally I hear it! Well it is very similar to much of thier previous albums, maybe not really any hugely stand out tunes like Winona, Shakes hand with Beef or DMV, but a good few that are new enough, stranger, bizarre, catchy, interesting still. They do try a few new sounds, things and it is I would say quite heavier than the previous couple of albums really. Bit more metal/rock. Generally another great PRIMUS album, of what you want if you like them!

This is a much more commercial album in the same vein as Tales From The Punch Bowl. Unfortunately this album left me feeling a little let down because of the lack of the usual Primus quirkiness.

this album lives up to it's title, there is no denying that, as a matter of fact MTV banned the only video (laquer head) released from this album.

this disc is a classic, it's probably(after frizzle fry) the most accessable album primus have recorded and one of there best at that. les claypool again proves why he's probably the greatest bass player alive today and one of the great songwriters of our generation.
