On-Demand Video: Soundcheck Presents a Very Wonka Afternoon with Primus
Originally Aired: Friday October 31, 2014
Soundcheck celebrated Halloween with one of the most inventive and darkly comedic bands of all time as they performed selections from its Willy Wonka-inspired new album, Primus & The Chocolate Factory.
The band’s original lineup of Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde, and Tim “Herb” Alexander performed selections from its Willy Wonka-inspired new album, Primus & The Chocolate Factory — a reimagining of the score to the classic 1971 Mel Stuart film. Claypool describes the new tunes as sounding like “one of the early Peter Gabriel records meets Dark Side of the Moonmeets the Residents.”
