Primus is an American rock band formed in El Sobrante, California in 1984. The band consists of bassist/vocalist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry "Ler" LaLonde and drummer Jay Lane. Primus is characterized by Claypool's eccentric, rhythmic and often complex basslines and use of effects, Hall's unconventional drumming methods, and the onstage antics of both, which often include costumes, clowning and mime. Claypool has also stated they have "a very traditional rock band" dynamic. When asked about the band's influences, Claypool listed Frank Zappa, The Residents, Captain Beefheart and Rush; he has also said that the band was inspired by British post-punk outfit Gang of Four. Primus's style is often syncopated and based on odd time signatures, making them a staple of the math rock and indie rock genres. The band released their first album, Frizzle Fry, in February 1990. The album was met with mixed reviews but gained a small cult following. Primus's second album, Sailing the Seas of Cheese, was released in May 1991 and was a critical and commercial success, peaking at number 11 on the Billboard 200. The album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in October 1994. Primus's third album, Pork Soda, was released in April 1993 and reached number seven on the Billboard 200. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA in December 1995. Primus's fourth album, Tales from the Punchbowl, was released in October 1995 and reached number eight on the Billboard 200. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA in March 1996. Primus's fifth album, Brown Album, was released in July 1997 and reached number two on the Billboard 200. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA in November 1997. Primus's sixth album, Antipop, was released in October 1999 and reached number three on the Billboard 200. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA in February 2000.
