Les Claypool, along with Buckethead on guitar, Brain on drums, and original Parliament/Funkadelic member Bernie Worrell on keyboards, released their debut album 'The Big Eyeball In The Sky' September 21st on Prawn Song Records.
Claypool characterizes the band as "a traveling, oversized sock-puppet show spawned by the characters of a Tobe Hooper film and scored by Danny Elfman on bad acid."
The 11 songs were written and recorded last year by the four band members and feature a unique collaborative sound. Check samples of the songs on the new site here: http://c2b3.com/
Les: "The chemistry between this particular ensemble has been extremely inspirational and working with Bernie Worrell has been a constant source of amazement. He is without a doubt one of the true musical geniuses of our time."
"The majority of the lyrics on this record were written at the onset of the Iraq confrontation" explains Claypool, "so it was very difficult not to be influenced by the frustration and confusion that was felt by myself and the people around me - though somewhat dark, I tried to cloak my angst, conveying thoughts through the eyes of colorful and satirical characters."
This CD's package reaches new levels of superiority, with an embossed silver foil cover image!
