    Primus @ Paramount Theatre When a band's been going for 30 years, it needs to change it up to keep from stagnating and slipping into insanity/inanity; for one example, look at Flaming Lips and their tackling of sacred-cow rock albums in their entirety. So it makes a kind of twisted sense that funky prog-rock smart alecks Primus would cover the soundtrack to the whimsical 1971 cult film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory , as they did with their 2014 album, Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble .

    Primus & the Chocolate Factory [SNOZZBERRY STOMP] How did Primus take this long to record a tribute to the Willy Wonka soundtrack? I mean, the originals sounded like stuff Les Claypool would write two decades before his claymation-funk power trio stomped out of the Bay Area in the early Alternative Nation days.

    Les Claypool has always been a little bit off - and now he's paying tribute to a movie that's a little bit off, too. The famed bassist and frontman for Primus made his name in the 1990s thanks to off-kilter hits like "Wynonna's Big Brown Beaver," not to mention his own outro-showmanship.
