Primus Primus And The Chocolate Factory w/The Fungi Ensemble Colored Vinyl LP

 

Primus is back and stranger than ever with their delicious new studio album, Primus & The Chocolate Factory with The Fungi Ensemble, a tribute to the weird and wonderful world of Willy Wonka.

 

Primus’ classic lineup –  bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry Lalonde and drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander – reunites for their first full-length release since 1995, a darker, tripped-out take on the classic 1971 musical Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

 

“The recording is about my early perception of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film,” says Claypool. “The notion wasn’t so much to go in and redo the soundtrack note for note as much as it was to utilize the classic elements of the music yet try to reflect some of the darker undertones of the Roald Dahl books, because when you read those books, there is an eerie and somewhat menacing aspect implied.”

 

Primus And The Chocolate Factory With The Fungi Ensemble will be celebrated with a 22-stop national tour that kicks off right after the album’s October 2014 release, and fans can expect a surreal experience – with Primus chocolate bars, an abstract stage production, and Les Claypool in the signature purple waistcoat and top hat as Wonka himself.
