Watch the exclusive premiere of Primus' new video "Candyman" only on

Les Claypool is always pushing the boundaries of bass and taking his music to new levels of greatness...and weirdness. The recent Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble puts a slow, upright-slathered, and distinctly Les spin on the psychedelic flavor of the Leslie Bricusse/Anthony Newley soundtrack to the 1971 classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Les Explains to Bass Player... "When we finished up the last album cycle, I had this idea of taking on some sort of sacred cow, either with my band or with Primus. And then when Herb came back, we were all excited about Primus. I always had the creepy “Candyman” idea in my head, so it kind of stemmed from there. Every year, we do a New Year’s show with a theme, so last year we decided to do the Wonka theme and play some of the songs from the Wonka soundtrack in our own way. Next thing I knew, we were doing the entire record. It just fell together so nicely. It’s one of the smoothest undertakings I’ve done in a long time." (Read the full article HERE)
