The Place Where Primus Secret Movie Connections Are Revealed

This page is a continuation of my Pink Floyd page on the topic of album & movie synchronicity (or synchronization). To enjoy a sync, simply play the chosen movie with the sound turned off, and play the appropriate CD at the same time. Turning on the captions can enhance the experience. Specific instructions for each sync are given on this web page.

Special Notes

16.08.16The Claypool Lennon Delirium rocked the Majestic Theatre in Detroit on 11.08.16.  They were amazing!  Since it was a more intimate venue, I managed to work my way fairly close to Sean Lennon's side of the stage.  He and Les Claypool looked in my direction a few times.  I was wearing my David Gilmour concert shirt from his latest tour.  The band played a great selection of songs:  several from Monolith of Phobos, Pink Floyd's "Astronomy Domine," King Crimson's "The Court of the Crimson King," The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows," The GOASTT's "Animals," and Primus' "Southbound Pachyderm," to name a few.  Their renditions of the classics were excellent.  The combination of these two talented artists was awesome.  I loved this show!  Thank you for joining forces for this album and tour!

16.04.16I purchased a pair of general admission tickets to see The Claypool Lennon Delirium at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit on 11.08.16.  That should be an interesting combination!

07.08.15 -  Primus put on another great show!  I enjoyed the selection of songs they played at Freedom Hill.  They are talented performers for sure.  Glad to catch these guys again so soon after the last time.

30.07.15 -  I purchased two tickets to see Primus and GOASTT live on 02.08.15 at Freedom Hill.  The seats are located in Section 200C, Row A, Seats 219 & 220.  I'm feeling enthusiastic, since the show is only a few days away!

07.11.14Today, I am pleased to expand the secret movie/music sync theory to include yet another progressive rock band, Primus.  I've been following these guys ever since they opened for Rush.  The title/concept of their latest CD "Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble" really says it all.  It is an interesting remake of the classic tunes from the original Willy Wonka film.  That was all I needed to try this interesting and obvious combination.

My uncle Rick and I went to the Primus concert at the Fillmore in Detroit on 03.11.14. Our seats were in the Loge section.  (It had been a long time since either of us have seen Primus live. In fact, the last time was when they opened for Rush several tours ago.)  The Primus show was awesome!  The first act featured a good mix of their classic songs.  The second act featured the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble.  The stage was set up like the beautiful candy room in the chocolate factory.  Behind the band was a screen displaying key scenes from the film.  It's probably the most obvious prompting to fans to play the songs with the film.  During the Oompa Loompa songs, two Oompa Loompas danced on the stage.  And, of course, Les Claypool was dressed up as Willy Wonka.  All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the show!  The music and presentation were spot on.
