This trio of amazing rockstars saw their story begun back in the enchanting 80s when many of today’s greatest rock acts were being born, and from this same pool came Primus. Formed in El Sobrante in the State of California, within the confines of the US, of course, Primus was formed by Les Claypool who also financed the band by selling his car, a clear indication of how much this great musician was willing to go for his artistic and musical aspirations. The group was initially formed as a duo alongwith Todd Huth as the guitarist with a LinnDrum machine as the ‘drummer’. However, Vince ‘Perm’ Parker joined the band soon after as its drummer and Primus recorded its first demo tape. The band was initially formed as Primate due to clashes with a band known as The Primates and so Primate was changed to Primus.
Primus gained a large local gathering due to unique style of music termed as ‘funk metal fusion’ so much so that they had sold out venues such as at the famous Berkeley Square. The band then recorded its second demo known as Sausage followed by Primus being on hold after which Claypool hired former Possessed guitarist, Larry ‘Ler’ Lalonde to reform the band. With LaLonde, the band recorded their first album Suck On This funded by a private loan from Claypool’s father. The band then released Frizzle Fry in 1990 with popular singles Too Many Puppies and John the Fisherman after which their popularity soared. The band also made a music video and opened for Jane’s Addicition, an immensely popular band at that time. With all this popularity, Interscope Records had no choice but to sign on this fabulous group of rockstars.
The band’s first album with Interscope Records was Sailing the Seas of Cheese with two singles released; namely Tommy the Car and Jerry Was a Race Car Driver which were featured on MTV with their own music videos. The band also performed a song for Beavis & Butthead tribute album known as Poetry and Prose. This album was highly successful and achieved a gold certification in terms of sales and the band itself started touring with the greats of the 90s, U2, Public Enemy and Anthrax and numerous people all over the world grabbed Primus tickets to watch them play live alongside these great acts, with Primus not far behind. In 1992, Primus released a cover of Making Plans for Nigel by XTC, a song that charted high on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.
The year of 1993 saw the band’s next album, Pork Soda released which debuted at an astounding number seven on the Billboard Top 10. Two years later, Primus was back with Tales from the Punchbowl, an album whose song Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver received a Grammy nomination and Primus also performed at the David Letterman Show and the Conan O’Brien Show. This time marked the band’s peak of stardom making it a household name in America to the point that people were literally flocking to lay their hands on Primus tickets.
In 1996, the band composed South Park’s theme followed by Brown Album that was released the next year, an album that was highly successful. Two years later, the band released Antipop featuring great musicians such as Metallica’s James Hetfield, Limpbizkit’s Fred Durst and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello. This in itself shows that this album was truly an epic artistic compilation featuring the very best in roc and metal. In 2000, the band released a cover of N.I.B, a Black Sabbath song with Ozzy Osbourne, a song that ranked second on the Billboard Modern Rock tracks. Since then, the band has continued entertaining audiences with numerous tracks and tours in a seemingly never ending journey of incredible music. To top it off, two of Primus’s albums are platinum and one gold. If you want this amazing act performing live on stage then the best deals on Primus tickets are just a click away!
