Akashic Books to Release PRIMUS, OVER THE ELECTRIC GRAPEVINE, 9/16
Suck on This. Frizzle Fry. Sailing the Seas of Cheese. Pork Soda. Tales from the Punchbowl. Revolutionary for their time, Primus's albums are now considered seminal alt-rock classics, all from a group that refused to be pigenholed-one that merged metal, funk, alternative, punk, country, roots rock, and experimental music to create a sound distinctly their own. Now, the history of the band is fully explored and revealed in a fascinating and beautifully curated oral history, featuring nearly fifty interviews from Trey Anastasio to Hank Williams III, a full-color photo insert of rare and never-before-seen images, and more.
Primus, Over the Electric Grapevine is compiled from nearly fifty all-new interviews conducted by journalist/author Greg Prato. This star-studded cast of contributors includes: Tim Alexander, Trey Anastasio (Phish), Matthew Bellamy (Muse), Les Claypool, Stewart Copeland (The Police), Chuck D (Public Enemy), Kirk Hammet (Metallica), Larry Lalonde, Geddy Lee (Rush), Mickey Melchiondo (Ween), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Chad Smith (RHCP), Matt Stone (South Park), Tom Waits, and many more.
