One of the most excellent bands on the planet. Formed in 1986 somewhere in the bay Area by Les Claypool (bass), Todd Huth (guitar) and Tim Wright (drums).
Wright shortly after the band's inception. He was replaced by Jay Lane. Then he jumped the shark too and was replaced by Tim "Herb" Alexander. Huth was also replaced by Blind Illusion guitarist Larry "ler" LaLonde.
CD after CD followed. Brian Mantia replaced Herb for The Brown Album and Antipop. But Herb has now returned for Animals Should Not Try To Act Like People, a 5-song EP.
Primus' "Pork Soda" was nominated for a Grammy in 1993.
