Tone Change In Claypool?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Freaky Fender, Oct 12, 2001.

  1. My mom just picked upd the new "Oysterhead" album, and it seems to me that Les's tone has changed quite a bit from the twangy stringy sound from primus, to a more low end, perfect mids and highs. has anyone else noticed this?

    I have. Just experimentation I guess.
  3. I bet on the next Primus album (if there is one), then he'll return to his signature sound. Oysterhead is a lot different than Primus, sound wise, so I'm sure he wanted to take a departure from that Primus tone.

    Was the cd for you? Or is your mom cool and does she like them?

    My mom likes Primus, not when they talk about masturbation though.
  5. lol. well so far i LOVE THIS CD! but as far as how cool my parents are try this on for size, my dad brought my to Lupo's (a club downtown) to see "Les Claypool's Flying Frog Birgade"! i still have the ticket stub

    Youre dad is awesome.
  7. i really like his tone with's more refined than the one he used in primus...maybe he's changing...?
  8. And is a HUGE Blea Fleck fan. did i mention that he also met Tony Leven?

    Edit: and did i also mention he ENJOY THE CONCERT VERY MUCH? he said it was one of the best shows he's seen in his life! and Les was hung over too!
  9. I was actually dissapointed with the Oysterhead album, I thought it would be the coolest album since the New Kids on the Block debut, but they couldn't deliver...:(

  13. Oh sh*t, did I say that outloud?! Yeah, someone logged on as my screen name and typed that...umm....geez...
  14. now if only he would change his singing. i had no problem with his unconventional tone but his voice is one of the most naseating sounds i've ever heard produced by a human. he sings like a cross between tom waits bob dylan.
