The classic Primus line-up are back together and set to release their first full-length studio album in nearly 20 years, 'Primus & the Chocolate Factory,‰۪ due out on ATO Records.
"The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record,‰۪ says Claypool. ‰ÛÏI think like a good portion of the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the 'Willy Wonka' movie - the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film [1971's 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,' starring Gene Wilder] that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that's what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit...twisted them up a lot‰.
