Les Claypool (Primus, Les Claypool Frog Brigade, Sausage, etc) and Sean Lennon (John Lennon - might remember his dad) have been "throwing musical pasta at the wall" under the name The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Here's a song.

I'm a huge Les Claypool fan but what do you all think of this?

    Was going to see Saber Tooth Tiger w/ his GF, but I couldn't make it at the last minute. Interesting stuff.

    Hell of a lot better then I thought it was going to be. Wasn't certain how Sean Lennon was going to fit in the equation, but based off of that one song I'd buy it.

    Listening to this on a pair of SDA's would be phenominal!

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:
    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    Thanks, @Nightfall, LOVE those songs!

    They're coming to our amphitheater in Wilmington in June. Should be an unpredictable and fun show. I've never seen him or any of the related bands, so I'm expecting the unexpected. Ordering the LP this morning.

    I haven't been to Bonnaroo in a long time, but this show would probably make it worth the hassle of dealing with the dirty hippie/frat boy mixture. Primus at Bonnaroo way back when is still one of my favorite shows ever.

    Anyone here have the Oysterhead album? Another good Claypool project, in my opinion.

    I prefer John's other son, Julian over Sean by a wide margin. To bad they can't stand each other thanks to the wicked witch of the east... I think that would have made an awesome collaboration.

    Yep, oustanding, 5 stars. Interesting super-group that I'd really like to see more from.

    I saw them play a show, coincidentally at Bonnaroo.. Claypool must love that festival. Anyway, the live show was nearly note for note repeat of the album. Rather disappointing considering the members. It was still really cool to see them, and Les did bring out the bend-a-neck standup bass which is always interesting.

    Copeland is getting up there in age. I bet it's tough to keep up on drums with guys like Trey and Les when you're in your 60's. Doubtful that they will be doing anything together again, but that would be awesome.

    Bad news, not sure if I'm going to make this show. I work the same day and my brother graduates the day after. He's a six hour drive from me. I'd have to burn the candle from both ends to accomplish those two days. .
