Primus Slaps De Bass June 4 at the Fillmore Miami Beach; Our Five Favorite Songs
Just thinking about Primus makes it clear how bland the rock music world has become. There was a time, and it wasn't all that long ago, that MTV and radio stations played what some people -- okay, maybe just one person, me -- affectionately refer to as "crazy people music." Primus was just such crazy people music.
We'd be hard pressed to find a band today that can blend absurdity and prog - rock - jazz - fusion - funk - metal to create radio-friendly hits.
In anticipation of the frog brigade's South Florida show on June 4, here are five of our favorite Primus songs. We will post ticket sale date information as soon as we get it.
"Jerry Was A Race Car Driver"
"Too Many Puppies"
"My Name Is Mud"
"Winona's Big Brown Beaver"
