primus The Desaturating Seven (splatter vinyl LP, £18.95)
Primus release their ninth studio album, the first of original material since 1995’s ‘Tales From The Punchbowl’, with the classic Primus line-up of Les Claypool (vocals, bass), Larry LaLonde (guitar) and Tim Alexander (drums). ‘The Desaturating Seven’ is inspired by a 1970’s children’s book Claypool often read to his kids when they were growing up. The book tells a story of seven goblins – one representing each color of the rainbow – who simultaneously pull all of the color out of the world. “Many years ago when my children were little kidlets scurrying around the place wreaking havoc and whatnot till it was time for bed and book time, my wife turned them on to a book called “The Rainbow Goblins” by Ul De Rico,” Claypool explained. The use of colour and darkness both in the paintings and the writing was compelling and now, near two decades later, the metaphor of greed, gluttony and deceit versus unity of the masses is eerily relevant. A Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum selling band, Primus has toured with some of rock’s biggest names (Jane’s Addiction, Public Enemy, Rush, U2, etc.) and headlined the third-ever Lollapalooza Festival. "One of the most unique and oddball acts in rock and roll" - Guitar World. Limited edition clear vinyl with 5 colour rainbow splatter (includes download code).
