Rejoice! Rejoice! all ye lovers of mutant slap bass funk gunk…LTW faves, Primus, the band led by Les Claypool who is one of the best bass players on the planet have announced a new album. The album is typically and brilliantly wackoid  and is a tribute to the classic 1971 musical film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, starring Gene Wilder  and certainly not the 2005 remake directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp: both artists are talented, he said, but “But like all human beings, every now and then, we crap in our pants”.

The band also plan to tour despite their drummer recently having a heart attack but seemingly recovered enough to deal out those polyrythms.
