My thoughts on the latest Primus release "Green Naugahyde"
Featuring three original members in Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde and Jay Lane, and their first full length release since 1999’s “Antipop”, “Green Naugahyde” is the hugely anticipated new release from Primus. On first exposure “Green Naughahyde” sees the new Primus perky and infused with a modern funk sensibility, but more mature in their approach to song writing. We still have the distinguishing cartoon character vocal style of bassist Les Claypool, but what we also have now is contemporary subject matter that is fully ripe for observation.
