Biography

The addition of Primus will put a big smile on many people’s faces. With their only previous visit to Dessel dating to 1998, it was high time to renew our acquaintance with the alternative rock/metal band from Frisco. Purposely off-kilter and experimental, their music has never respected traditional formats or genre conventions. The songs’ main purpose is to showcase the band members’ musical talent; lyrics are often added or changed and they like to improvise on stage. Their last CD ‘Green Naugahyde’ (2013) has common ground with all of their previous releases so if you’re new to Primus this is probably as good a place to start as any. Despite frequent line-up changes over the years, the original line-up is currently in place again with flamboyant frontman Les Pool, guitarist Larry ‘Ler’ LaLonde and octopus Tim Alexander. (#GMM17)
