Les Claypool on New Primus Album: We're Bringing Back Goblin Rock

Writing about Primus for the third time in more detail, I got to compile a list of their crazy lyrics. Somewhat structure as a spoken word story, the delivery of each line is perfect to the wacky sound they produce. Also in the comedic effect, in their many years making albums, it is always different. Check out my reviews below or get straight into some tasty sentences.

  • Smells like seven layers. That beaver eats taco bell. – Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver
  • They call me Mr. Knowitall. I am so eloquent. Perfection is my middle name. And whatever rhymes with eloquent. – Mr. Knowitall

  • I sit back and smoke away huge chunks of memory, as I slowly inflict upon myself a full lobotomy. – DMV

  • I do not wear panties. I’ve never worn panties. But if called upon, panties I will wear. Big white house panties, or small, delicate, European briefs. Whatever panties do he doth say for me to strap up on, I’m gonna go strap up on them panties. – Power Mad
  • Once there was a land that lived in fear of seven goblins. The goblins fed on color. They plowed the valleys and climbed the highest mountains looking for rainbows. And when they found one, they caught it in their lassoes and sucked the colors up, filling their bellies with its black liquid. Only one place in the land had never known goblin fear; a hidden valley called the “Valley of the Rainbow,” where great arches of color were born. There, the animals lived in paradise. – The Valley

Knowing that they tour a lot, I would love to seem them live again. I think I saw them live at Soundwave either 2009 or 2010.
