Aaahh yeah. I’ve got great news for all you hookers and hustlers that share with Brinson and I a love for all things funky and bass-heavy.
Brahsome.com favorite Les Claypool will be offering up some more of his musical genius this fall with a new album entitled Of Fungi and Foe, which drops March 17. Even better news is that there will be a tour to support the album. Dates are here.
A pretty cool side note is that most of the new tunes are inspired by some of his recent side projects.
He scored the music for a new video game called Mushroom Men, which is based on the premise that a meteor hits Earth and “brings intelligence to the mushrooms within the crash proximity.”
He’s also developing a soundtrack to film about “a three thousand pound wild boar that terrorizes the marijuana fields of Northern California.”
An explanation from Señor Claypool himself after the jump.
“Sometime back I was commissioned to write soundtrack music for two projects that promised to have quite a bit of very intense and unique imagery. One was for an interactive game about a meteor that hits Earth and brings intelligence to the mushrooms within the crash proximity and the other was about a three thousand pound wild boar that terrorizes the marijuana fields of Northern California. Obviously the makers of the subsequent MUSHROOM MEN game and PIG HUNT film were very aware of my tastes and perspectives because the music oozed from me in such a natural way that I believe it came as much from my pores as it did my mind. This music became the foundation of the songs that fill this collection. With a few added tidbits and a bit of gypsy sauce, I inflict upon you… OF FUNGI AND FOE” – Les Claypool
