Can it really be? After a 12 year hiatus, Primus is back together as their original, pre-studio-recording lineup, with a new album and a summer tour. The Primusphere is brimming with anticipation, wondering what this bass-driven, carnivalesque rock group is about to hit us with.
Primus debuted with the album Frizzle Fry in 1990. I won't attempt to accurately report their full and long history, but I'll do my best at the gist--by this time, after playing locally in California for years, the band had already split with their old drummer, Jay Lane, and went big with Tim Alexander, with whom they recorded many of their albums.
