Never would've become familiar with them but for a great friend (a fantastic bass player who went to North Texas) convincing me to listen to Sailing The Seas of Cheese. Les, Ler, and Herb were special.
They played a small Irish pub next to a store I worked at in 88. Strange venue but great show. I always liked them, but I never expected the public to appreciate them as much as they have.
Seen them a bunch over the years. Pork Soda is arguably my favorite album.
Ahh, early 90's Primus, the reason that rhythm is so distinct is because their first drummer came up with most of the parts to their early songs. Herb topped it off really well. It's no surprise that Green Naugahyde is also a great album IMO and very underrated.
Early 90s Primus was great, great stuff. I was in Columbia, MO at that time and Primus opened for Fishbone on the first date of a national tour that started at the Blue Note in COMO. Fishbone had just released Reality of My Surroundings and both bands were 100% at the height of their powers.
