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, ...

4.0 out of 5 stars not for everyone 14 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this is a covers ep, it's also a little piece of history as it was one of the fisrt music cd's to also have pc contents on it(primus: leading the way , yet again).

the tracks on this ep are all really good but it's the last three that stand out. the thing that should not be , originally by metallica is so well done you'd be mistaken for thinkin that it's actually metallica(not bad for a three piece). the real treat is in the live tracks though, the live version of tommy the cat is 9 minutes long and includes an awesome bass solo halfway through. bob's party time lounge is also breathtaking, again it's not for everyone but a must for completists.

5.0 out of 5 stars 7 covers + 2 extended live tracks 3 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
First off, this 'EP' is practically 50 minutes long so more of a full album really. I particularly enjoyed the opening track 'Scissor Man' as well as the cover of Stanley Clarke's 'Silly Putty'. As a whole, the album is refreshing and contains well structured instrumentals - the vocals are also absent on some of the tracks.

The 2 live tracks are Primus' own, taken from a New Years Eve show in 1997, and demonstrate the fluidity of their live performances. 'Tommy The Cat' is over 8 minutes long and one of the best versions of the song I have heard, including an impressive drum solo by Bryan "Brain" Mantia and "The Awakening" bass solo by Les Claypool.

Primus may be wacky, but this is not the only string to their bow - they are also seriously talented musicians and brought us some of the most innovative alternative music of the 90's.

5.0 out of 5 stars is Tommy the cat the best live track ever recorded? 10 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of primus' best works. My personal favorites are Scissorman, Amos Moses, and, of course, Tommy The Cat. I played Tommy for about 6 people and all of them became primus-heads over night and bought the album the next day (no lie). Primus isn't about master chops instead its about having a REALLY good time (having those master chops doesn't hurt things either) I'm as big a fan of victor wooten and Jaco as any serious bass player but claypool's music has something that those other guys are missing...mass appeal. I promise you that les inspired more kids to pick up a bass then victor or jaco ever did. (plus, i dare victor to play and sing tommy the cat like les does)

5.0 out of 5 stars Once Again The Mighty Primus Outdo Themselves 8 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Primus's Rhinoplasty is more than just a mere album of covers, it is simply amazing. Somehow, the band manages to recreate the trademark sounds of every artist that they cover on the album and still manages to keep some of the trademark Primus sound intact. For starters, the amazing cover of XTC's "Scissorman" would probably make even Andy Partridge (the XTC guy) go, "Hmm, are you sure that's Primus, sounds like us!" Stanley Clarke's amazing instrumental "Silly Putty" (featuring some amazing scratching by DJ Disk) gets perfunctory treatment. Jerry Reed's classic "Amos Moses" is also great, with Larry LaLonde managing to create and exact replica of Jerry's licks, and Les Claypool adding his own vocal spin to it. The Police's "Behind My Camel" is also great, complete with bass chops that sound just like Sting's. Metallica's "The Thing That Should Not Be" is also great. If that wasn't enough, there are three Primus classics, two of them performed live. The remix of "Too Many Puppies" is very danceable. Threre is also a video on the CD accessable through your computer, a claymation video of "The Devil Went Down To Georgia," that is hilarious, and worth the price of admission alone. The thing that really puzzles me about this disc is it is classified as an EP and sold at an EP price, which seems almost criminal considering that most of the current "big" full length albums released today don't even have a hundredth of this much substance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad 15 May 2000
By "lemarquis" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This record isn't a primus songs album. There are songs of Metallica, Stanley Clark (Auteuil Neuilly Passy, c'est pas du gâteau, Auteuil Neuilly Passy, tel est notre ghetto! TU "smack" VAS "smack" BIEN! ),Peter Gabriel, etc... There are also 2 live tracks (Tommy and Bob), and with the password VIOLIN, you have a enhaced CD which is cool! If you are just discovering Primus, you must buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Revitalizing Album 26 Mar 2001
By Brian Glass - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was starting to burn out on Primus with the few albums prior to this one, but I had to buy this for the Jerry Reed song. I'm glad I bought it. I remembered "Amos Moses" from my childhood. Primus's version is fresh and different but also a dead on rendition. While I'm not as familiar with many of the remaining songs they are none the less enjoyable and allow Primus to stretch into some stuff I haven't heard from them before. "Scissor Man" would fit nicely into any Primus album musically and lyrically. Silly Putty is a near Acid Jazz instrumental. "The Thing That Should Not Be" doesn't really add much to the Metallica version but is servicable. The two live bonus tracks are exciting versions of two of my favorite Primus songs.
I think that doing this album of covers revitalized something in Primus. I don't think it's a coincidence that their next album Anti-Pop was one of the freshest, best albums they've put out since Sailing The Seas Of Cheese.

5.0 out of 5 stars What are you talking about? 20 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I hate to tell you different,"Music fan from San Francisco,California" but Les Claypool is a great bass player.Maybe he isn't as good as those other guys,but tell me who can play the bass like that nowadays?People rarely play instruments anymore,except for drummers.Guitarists simply strum their guitar and act like they're playing,so give Les a little credit.He does better than the rest of them
