  • Recording information: Rancho Relaxo, CA.
  • Photographer: Paul Haggard.
  • Les Claypool is nothing short of a fringe art genius. With a cult following that has never relied on mainstream promotion or acceptance, the Primus bassist/vocalist forges ahead with his journey into musical madness, Frog Brigade. In typically offbeat Claypool fashion, the Brigade's third album PURPLE ONION was preceded by two live releases.
  • PURPLE ONION has the instantly endearing quirkiness of YELLOW SUBMARINE and the melodic abandon of JOE'S GARAGE. "Whamola" and "D's Diner" revisit territory forged in Les's Sausage/Primus days, while "Ding Dang" makes a relevant social statement about bigotry with trademark Claypool prose. In an age of marketing strategy and bandwagon trends, PURPLE ONION is refreshingly original and entertaining.

CMJ (9/30/02) - "...Claypool's bass-spanking and carnival barker delivery warp the songs like the inside of a funhouse mirror..."
