Biografia

Colonel Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade (also known as The Les Claypool Frog Brigade) is one of many musical projects involving Primus bassist Les Claypool. The original band was formed in summer 2000 and consisted of: Les Claypool (bass, vocals), Todd Huth (guitars, vocals), Jay Lane (drums), Jeff Chimenti (keyboards), Skerik (saxophone), and Eenor (guitars). Les Claypool has described their sound as, “It’s kind of a King Crimson meets Pink Floyd meets Frank Zappa type thing.”

The band released two live recordings in 2001, Live Frogs Set 1 and Live Frogs Set 2. Set 1 is a mix of covers and originals, including “Thela Hun Ginjeet” (King Crimson) and “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” (Pink Floyd). Set 2 is a live cover of the entire Pink Floyd album, Animals. A studio album was also released in 2002 entitled Purple Onion.

All three albums were released on Les Claypool’s Prawn Song Records.


History

Claypool formed the band to play the Mountain Aire Festival, a jamband festival that takes place in Northern California on Memorial Day weekends each year. Its initial lineup featured MIRV on guitar, Skerik on saxophone, and both Jack Irons (ex-Pearl Jam and Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Primus’ Tim Alexander on drums. Les had planned on naming the band Les Claypool’s Thunder Brigade, but was told by Mountain Aire organizers that the name might sound too heavy for the jamband crowd.
