Willy Wonka, Primus style
The ever undefinable Primus offer up another slice of musical weirdness this summer with the release of eighth studio album Primus and the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble. It's a 're-imagining' of the soundtrack from the Gene Wilder starring cult classic from 1973 (not, as the band are keen to stress, the "horrendous" Tim Burton remake), which features the songs Pure Imagination and Candy Man.
It's a movie which has long held a fascination for the rock/metal/psychedelic group, with this tour and album building on a Wonka-themed performance they gave in Oakland last year. Aside from nabbing some of the band's exclusive chocolate bars at the shows, Primus fans can also rejoice at the fact that this tour will be the first to feature the original trio of Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde and Tim Alexander since 1995.
