Funk-rock slap-bass fans rejoice: Primus is hitting the road again, playing not one, but two sets of weirdo jams on most of their spring tour dates. Those are the “An Evening With Primus” shows; on a handful of other dates, they’ll have either Gogol Bordello or Fishbone opening for them, which unless you’re a complete Claypool freak is almost as awesome.

Claypool and the boys will also have a limited-edition 10″ single out soon featuring two tracks, “Jilly’s on Smack” and “Eyes of the Squirrel,” from their latest album, Green Naugahyde. The single will come in, of course, a green Naugahyde case. And yes, I capitalized Naugahyde because it’s a trademarked brand name. Do we teach you something new on this site every day or what?

We’ll play this post out with Primus’s funkerrific tribute to the great bad guy gunslinger Lee Van Cleef, as recently performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Which do you suppose Les has more of: bass guitars or wacky hats?
