Artist: Primus (Les Claypool)
Event Title: Hallucinogenetics Tour 2004 at FleetBoston Pavilion
Date: June 23, 2004
Website: http://primussucks.com

After a few years of working with the likes of Trey Anastasio and Stewart Copeland, bass deity Les Claypool decided to give his old band mates another chance to back him up. And though the reunion show was touted as a Primus concert, it ended up as a combination of a Les Claypool solo gig and a poor man’s Pink Floyd show.

From the dangling balloon screens that were reminiscent of the aggressive tits from "Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex" to the psychedelic (and often disturbing) projections that were repetitively flashed thereupon, the broad back lit stage set gave the audience a lot to take in, but little of it was the band. And when the Colonel went into one of his freewheeling solos, the visual focus became even more narrow.

From the low end Spanish guitar intro to "Fish On" and the frenetic looping of "The Carpenter and the Dainty Bride," to older hits like the pounding "Too Many Puppies" and the sweeping "Mr. Know-it-all" from the trio’s first album, Fizzle Fry (which was played in its entirety for the second act), Claypool bowed, plucked, slapped, and whammied his way across the musical landscape, dragging his talented but far less imaginative cohorts along with him.

While Larry LaLonde’s guitar was impressive, his proclivities to copy David Gilmour and Eddie Van Halen only widened the originality gap between him and his low end partner. Similarly, Tim Alexander’s drubbing drum work was heavy and propulsive, but it never quite open up into the fill-filled fantasy that Claypool called for.
