Sailing the seas of cheese by Primus (Musical group)( Recording )

21 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening with the creaky sounds of a ship at sea, Sailing charts the funk-punk waters the San Francisco Bay area band returns to again and again. It's all here: the acerbic humor, Les Claypool's gurgling fretless bass lines, Larry LaLonde's seasick metal guitar, and Tim Alexander's Bill Bruford-inspired syncopation. The narrator of "Sgt. Baker" aims to "rape your personality," while the reapers of the "American Life" live out their dreams "residing in a cardboard box." Tom Waits makes a cameo on the funky back-alley tale "Tommy the Cat," and the protagonist of "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" has "too many cold beers one night" and "wraps himself around a telephone pole." Primus concert fave "Those Damned Blue Collar Tweakers" helps round out this bizarre prog-punk masterpiece

Tales from the punchbowl by Primus (Musical group)( Recording )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Primus continues down its path of the quirky song. Bass phenom Les Claypool and his cohorts have previously Frizzle Fried, Sucked, and Sailed The Seas Of Cheese. Now, it seems, they have been to the Punchbowl, and have lived to tell its Tales. If you could take an element of Doctor Seuss, add some Fishbone and a bit of Tom Waits, you'd probably get something very strange, totally unlike Primus--but probably the nearest thing possible. They have harnessed the all-mighty powers of weirdness, and have made them their own: "It's alright, " they say, "don't fear the worm." Primus' strength lies in their ability to mix and mask the frivolousness that comes from their peculiarity with seriously dangerous music. This is loud funk, heavy funk, driving, grooving, smelly funk. Your body will move, your brain will smile. The threesome can sound like a singular voice or a multitude of synchronous twists. Each member is a stunning instrumentalist. Yet as phenomenal as their individual abilities are, what really sets them apart is the monster group groove and cohesive chemistry. TALES FROM THE PUNCH BOWL is prime Primus
