PRIMUS / Miscellaneous Debris EP [1992]

Stoner funkheads Primus quietly released a 5 song EP of cover songs in 1992 aptly titled Miscellaneous Debris.
It might sound like Primus but they're restricted to staying semi-normal due to the arrangements of someone else's music, which makes for a great way to ease into them for the uninitiated.  Sort of.  There's still the frightenly weird Residents cover that might turn off some or the faithful cover of Pink Floyd, gonzoed up by Les Claypool's nasally haunting vocals. Without all the bizarre noodling like on their original compositions, the EP showcases Primus' technical brilliance and exposes some of their eccentric roots.
