1. Primus


Funk Rock

The founder and the permanent author of music and texts – Les Claypool, teaming up with guitarist Larry Lalonde, changes drummers from time to time, but this does not affect the quality of music. The style of the band is almost impossible to determine, Kleipul himself somehow called his music “psychedelic polka.” The band played with all sorts of musicians, their brightest performances with multi-instrumentalist Buckethead. The group opens many festivals, being a headliner, participating in musical shows, their performances are always distinguished by a special atmosphere. The distinctive manner of singing Claypool – it’s hard to call singing, he just tells the story in a microphone, which creates the impression of the absurdity of the combination of music and vocals in general. Musicians have an excellent sense of humor, probably because they wrote the title track for the animated series “South Park”. Primus is the only group that has a personal style for the ID3 tag in the Winamp player. In total there were nine albums of the band if you take into account all their joint and side projects, then there will be much more interesting material than officially released.

The heavy reefs of Cantrell and Stiyl’s hypnotic voice are combined in songs as a whole. After the death of Lane Steyli from an overdose of drugs (at the time of death with an increase of 180 cm, he weighed 39 kilograms) the group suspended its activities for a long period. With the advent of William Duvall in 2006, the group has regained its creativity and now travels the world with tours.

But each “last time” was not the last, because the group had an army of fans who wanted to see “that long-haired guy who sang.” Morrison allowed himself everything, he went on stage and said – “I am the lizard king. I can do anything. ” Having gained experience in clubs, the band recorded the first album, which became multi-platinum, then each of their albums became a masterpiece.
