    Erin on the Side of Caution

    Erin on the Side of Caution

    We round out our coverage of Conspiranoid with Erin on the Side of Caution, which imtroduces new wrinkles to the Primus fabric, and promises of more creativity to come. Lyrically, the track sticks with the other two on the release to provide the full picture of Les Claypool's frustrations with certain factions of society in 2020-21. Uh huh uh HUH!

    Follow The Fool

    Follow The Fool

    The second track of Conspiranoid, Follow The Fool, follows the theme of the EP's title track, and forced its way into sets during the second Tribute To Kings tour run in 2022. Matt Hunter guests to model the bass parts, and turns the envelope filter up to Eleven.

    Conspiranoia

    Conspiranoia

    Conspiranoia was borne of the band's prog shift, starting in 2017 and continuing with the Tribute To Kings tours, in which the band played Rush every night. Seems appropriate that they'd want to create their own epic, and this is the result of those efforts - a jammy, proggy suite complete numerous firsts for the band, and lyrics sure to piss off the right people. Put on your tinfoil hats as we dig into the 2022 edition of Primus!

    The Desaturating Seven - The Ends?

    The Desaturating Seven - The Ends?

    Is it truly The Ends? For The Desaturating Seven, yes. For Primus Tracks, not even close. We round out the 2017 Primus release with a brief discussion of the album's cyclical nature, the connections to the source text, and the extensive DS7 tour. Plus, it's Halloween, so why not inspect some Primus Halloween history?

Tommy the Cast

Haven’t nerded out about Primus since I was like 2007. Since finding the podcast I’ve been listening to nothing but Primus again. I’ve been playing a small jazz kit most of my years but now I’m using 4 toms & I’m about to buy splashes, bells & all the ding dangs, whistles, bangers & clangers on your average Primus set. This podcast is expensive but it’s great stuff none the less. Wonderful work gentleman

PS: Ballad of Buckethead episode?

Great podcast

A nice introspective into the dense lyrics and history of my favorite band. I am listening to an episode a day until I’m caught up. Josh and Frankie are great hosts and there special guests are top tier Primus folks.
