Primus’ Les Claypool was a couple months shy of his eighth birthday when Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory debuted in movie theaters. The movie became a perennial favorite that Claypool would revisit over the years, taking something different away from it each time.
So it seemed equal parts genius and obvious when he decided to throw a Wonka-themed Primus show on New Year’s Eve 2013 where Primus performed the soundtrack in its entirety. Claypool reflected, “It felt good. It felt like we needed to be doing this.” It felt so good, in fact, that he decided to take Primus into the studio to prepare the soundtrack for an album release. Of course, Claypool realized that it was risky business to adapt a cinematic classic that is so close to so many people’s hearts. The band pulls it off by making something that is truly their own.
