    I have never heard any of their songs. Are they any other bands that are like them? What kind of music do they play?
  9. Primus is their own sound. I've yet to see another band with their style. I only like about 10% of what I've heard, but it's still plenty cool.

    Good luck man.

    What is a good frist song to hear by them?

    "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver" made a big impression on my brain! ;)
  16. If you like more upbeat and bouncy music, "Sailing The Seas of Cheese" has songs like that. If you like dark weird songs, get something off the "Pork Soda" album. The best Primus album overall in my opinion is "The Frizzle Fry." Excellent, excellent album.
  17. Their new stuff anyway. And their really old stuff. But Shut Your Mouth and some of Black Sails are basically screaming. Black Sails has its melodic songs like God Called in sick today, Clove Smoke Catharsis..(actually most of it is melodic), and so does Shut your Mouth, but not much. Damn good, though.
    By the way, for some awesome bass playing, get Very Proud of Ya. Some of Geoff's riffs are just so creative, melodic and kick ass. Also, The Art of Drowning has good playing too (especially check out Sacrafice Theory)
    I just have to reply to every AFI post, don't I:D
  18. It's true. There's maybe a handful of songs that are good songs to listen to. The rest are all pretty crappy but every one of them is extremely impressive. The bass is cool in all the songs but as for the song as a whole.....meh.

    A slightly different style of music, but you should pick up "the Sun Don't Lie" by Marcus Miller. That is THE bass album (I'm so old I still call 'em Albums:eek: )

    I also like "Jungle Funk" featuring Doug Wimbish. It'll make you go buy an envelope filter!

    Wimbish is excellent, but I'm not into the vocals on that album.

    Primus is very unique, no one can tell you "they suck" or "they are the best band ever" you really need to hear it for yourself. I personally love their stuff, but I can see how some would say it's sort of in-accessible.
