Primus: Sailing The Seas Of Chocolate

Primus take Metal Hammer to Willy Wonka's world. Buckle up, time to get weird

Like an Everlasting Gobstopper, Bay Area bastardos Primus keep supplying the ear candy. Primus & The Chocolate Factory With The Fungi Ensemble is a re-imagining of songs from the 1971 Willy Wonka film that starred Gene Wilder

 “We’re combining Primus and some elements of my band – vibes, marimba, various junkyard percussion and cello – hence the Fungi Ensemble,” says leader and bassist, Les Claypool. “People are either gonna love it or hate it. You read Roald Dahl’s books and they’re pretty dark and sinister. We took it into that darker realm. We’ve taken on a sacred cow and I’m sure there’s gonna be people out there who think, ‘What the hell are these guys doing with my Wonka?’.”
