COLONEL LES CLAYPOOL'S FEARLESS FLYING FROG BRIGADE / Live Set 1 
Primus' Les Claypool takes some time off from his day job to form The Fearless Flying Frog Brigade for this 2001 recording of the first half of a live performance. A stoner prog-rock jam-band consisting of the original Primus line-up (aka Sausage), a saxophonist, a keyboardist and a lucky guitar playing fan who answered a newspaper ad.
The set is bookended by impressive covers of prog-rock pioneers King Crimson and Pink Floyd with songs from Claypool's Sausage and Holy Mackerel projects sandwiched in between. At first it's bizarre, noodly fun but with each listen it reveals just how tight these guys really are.
