This review is from: Frizzle Fry (Audio CD)
For those of you new to Primus you have a lot of wasted years to make up for!!! Here's a quick filler for you... Primus rock! Les Claypool is the greatest bassist of all time, he does things with a bass guitar that defy the imagination, the band as a whole consists of 3 fantastic musicians who would rather be fisherman than in a band but happen to be tallented enough to do both...
On to the album, Frizzle Fry was the album that got me into Primus and I have to say it is a work of genius. The story goes a little something like this... Les and the boys walked into the studio, some of the songs had been written, some hadn't, they jammed their hearts out, fooled around, made things up as they went along and if you listen hard enough you will even hear the sound of a bass string breaking and Les playing on regardless (unheard of!)the album was recorded in one hit, no re-working, no re-recording... wow!
The album has a sarcastic string running through the lyrics, the most incredible bass sounds imagineable and a feel to it that can only come from musicians truly having fun and enjoying what they do. This is a must own album for fans of the unusual, non-mainstream sounds, after all 'to defy the laws of tradition is a crusade only for the brave...'
