“Lacquer Head” is the first single from Primus’ 1999 album, Antipop. The song features three verses that tell the tale of three different children, and the harm that comes to them from their huffing of inhalants. MTV banned the single’s video for its drug references and purportedly “violent content,” despite the negative portrayal of the use of inhalants. This song was produced by Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. While producing the track, Durst encouraged the band to return to the more aggressive sound of their earlier albums for Antipop.
Leslie Edward “Les” Claypool born September 29, 1963 is best known as the lead vocalist and bassist in the band Primus. Claypool’s playing style on the electric bass mixes tapping, flamenco-like strumming, whammy bar bends and slapping.
Claypool has also self-produced and engineered his solo releases from his own studio “Rancho Relaxo”. 2006 saw the release of a full-length feature film Electric Apricot written and directed by Claypool as well as a debut novel South of the Pumphouse.
