Primus_Albumapproved_small_2011With an eleven year gap since their last opus, wacky racing rockers Primus are back with a new album and a new/old band member to give us 'Green Naugahyde'. Quite what Les Claypool and his band mates have in store for us this time, only Jim Rowland can tell us. So strap yourselves in as we once again warp our fragile tiny minds with Primus.
