After the Brown Album cycle wrapped, Primus was asked to work with a producer on their next effort, which was a covers EP to bridge albums. The band descended upon Prairie Sun studios, and with the help of the legendary Toby Wright, created the band's second EP. Toby Wright kindly joined us to mine the depths of memory for the experience of making Rhinoplasty; another heavy brough to you by the one and only Tim Soya.

Making of Antipop
58:38Josh and Frankie go it alone to tackle the making of Antipop, perhaps the most divisive Primus record, for multiple reasons. This was a tumultuous time for the band on many fronts, and we try to piece the picture together. Fred Durst: Why Les, Why? Plus, we evaluate whether the record holds up today. @primustracks on IG and Twitterprimustrackspod@gmail.com

Inter-Album Interview: Derek Greenberg of Beanpole
1:47:25The madman behind Primus-adjacent musical adventurists Beanpole joins the podcast to reveal long-mysterious details on how Beanpole came to be, and the involvement of one Larry LaLonde, among many other luminaries. Derek also shares a never-before-heard Beanpole track, so call it a Primus Tracks exclusive!

Inter-Album Interview: David Lefkowitz (Master Class, part 1)
1:46:03Former Primus/Les manager David Lefkowitz will tell us, over the course of multiple talks, his recollections and perspectives on Primus during his tenure as manager from the late 80s to the mid 00s. Get your notebooks ready, because he's about to drop all kinds of names and stories on us.
Inter-Album Interview: Todd Huth
1:29:52Original Primus guitarist Todd Huth joins Primus Tracks to dig into those still-mysterious early days of Primate/Primus; working with Jay Lane and Les and making a name for themselves in the SF Bay. By the time you read this, Frankie has broken into Todd's attic to find some old tapes. Plus. we discuss his angular approach to guitar, his band Porch, Sausage, and what's in store for the future. Find Todd Huth on Spotify for his latest music!
Inter-Album Interview: Matt Winegar
1:38:02Grammy-winner Matt Winegar produced the legendary Sausage demo, Suck On This, and Frizzle Fry with Primus. Soya and Matt tread down memory lane with stories about the Bay Area scene and how those three important Primus recordings came to me. Great talk with two Bay Area champs!
41:52Soya rejoins the fray (from the road with Primus!!) to help us close the Brown Album with Arnie - throwaway closer or deep philosophical mind-bender? Mostly the former, but Frankie and Josh do their damnedest to turn hearts to the latter. Final thoughts on the record as a whole, Youtube provides a cover, our last 1897 connections, and a cryptic preview of what's to come between albums. Arnie!
The Chastising Of Renegade w/ Matt Hunter
55:39The penultimate Brown Album track mystifies and delights with its tantalizing guitar, bouncy bass, grooving drums. Easily greater than the sum of the parts, Renegade stands as a favorite for many from this record. Matt Hunter helps us understand the foundation of the tune and what makes it special. Plus, Frankie uses the word "thicc" again and makes us listen to his favorite part of the song 78 times.
Kalamazoo w/ David Lefkowitz
1:08:22Soya brings another heavy into the fold; this time, former Primus/Les manager David Lefkowitz drops in to talk Kalamazoo, a stylistic departure of sorts, until we find the pieces that constitute source material. Prima, Goodman, Miller....it all coalesces and becomes a Primus treat. We have an extended chat with David to drop after we finish the Brown Album, so be ready for that! @primustracks
