PRIMUS Announce “Willy Wonka” Tribute Album; Stream “Pure Imagination” Cover

Primus have announced the release, in conjunction with their upcoming themed tour, of their tribute album to the music of Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. The new album, which will be titled Primus & The Chocolate Factory with The Fungi Ensemble, will be released on October 21st. Mike Dillon of Critters Buggin and Sam Bass of Frog Brigade make appearances on the album along with studio drumming from Tim “Herb” Alexander. Primus frontman Les Claypool said of the album in a recent Rolling Stone:

“As we started putting it together, especially with the expanded soundscape of having string and vibraphone and marimba, it started sounding to me like one of the early Peter Gabriel records meets Dark Side of the Moon meets The Residents. That’s what I get out of it. Obviously that’s some big-ass horn-tooting to be doing.”

The Residents vibe can definitely be heard in the group’s rendition of “Pure Imagination”, which can be streamed after the break. The album’s track listing and corresponding tour dates can be seen below.

It is unsure whether or not Tim Alexander will be performing with the band on tour, due to his recent open-heart surgery.
