    Les will be appearing and playing to promote his new album "Of Fungi And Foe" (such a sick album) on Jimmy Kimmel April 1st. This should be quite interesting, his new album material is extremely out there, as he said himself it's the most "out there" thing he's produced. Can't wait to hear some of the new stuff live, he skipped the bay area on this tour he just finished up last night in NYC.

    Aw man, that blows. This line up of openers he was bringing along looked really interesting. I saw Secret Chiefs 3 a year ago on his last tour when they opened for Les in San Francisco and they were amazing. I was hoping to see them again but Les didn't play the bay area with the Faire. I got to see him on New Years though with Zappa Plays Zappa, so I'm not one to complain.

    His new carl thompson is beautiful also. Hopefully he uses it on Kimmel. Looked like he used it all this tour too
     
  6. I saw him on the 24th with Secret Chiefs and Saul Williams, all three of them were mind blowing.

    I dont want to be the only one bashing him,but i just cant listen to his music anymore,maybe if primus did something then id get into it but the kimmel show was just blahh to me
     
  8. I missed it
     
  9. i watched him on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. He didn't even touch his bass while he was on the air. He played a different 5 string instrument(not a 5-String Bass) which I can't identify at this time. Whatever the song he played was called; it was pretty good.

    That's his five string EUB. It's an NS one.

    Yeah Red State Girl is one of my favorites off the new album. I can't wait until they post the full show on abc.com. I really want to hear the rest of Booneville Stomp. Such a shame that got cut off.
