PRIMUS - BROWN ALBUM
Format: Compact Disc/EP/Single
Primus' sixth full-length release solidifies the trio's direction as a funkabilly band driven by Les Claypool's slapping and flamenco (!) techniques on the six string bass. On the opening track, "The Return Of Sathington Willougby", Claypool addresses his listeners with a staggered voice and conspiracy-theory philosophy strongly reminiscent of William S. Burroughs, accompanied by Brain's militaristic drumming, Larry LaLonde's high octave guitar noise, and his own slap-happy bass.
Claypool's lyrics are as quirky as ever, dealing with issues such as insane adolescents, confederate drunks, and Kalamazoo, Michigan. BROWN ALBUM was recorded solely in the analogue format, giving Claypool's bass an even crunchier sound than on previous recordings. With Brain's drum fills and Larry LaLalonde's funk riffs, Primus' music has more body than ever before.
