Présentation de l'éditeur

One of BookRiot's Must-Read Books from Indie Presses for 2014

"Prato has curated a collection to attract the uninitiated as well as preach to the unwashed converted masses."

"It's a wild ride that's vividly captured in Greg Prato's excellent oral history, Primus: Over the Electric Grapevine."
--Bass Player Magazine

"A book about the highly strange San Franciscans Primus has been overdue for years, so Greg Prato's excellent oral history of the band is welcome--doubly so, given that the key bandmembers, Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde and Tim Alexander, are involved....Great stuff."
--Record Collector Magazine

"A master storyteller, skilled in the art of assembling oral histories that not only examine their subjects in great depth but also spin a great yarn, Prato is able to combine a thorough study of Claypool's eccentric genius with a relaxed, free-flowing narrative of the Primus's origins story, detailing influences and lineup changes, early performances and the making of landmark Primus albums....[The book] doesn't get bogged down by minutiae, and although it could be called an 'exhaustive' work, it's far from an exhausting read."
--Backstage Auctions

"Esteemed journalist and rock historian Greg Prato brings his estimable literary skills in unwrapping the enigma of Primus....If you loved Primus before but maybe didn't understand everything they did, that will change after reading this. In fact, when you finish the last page here, race over to your Primus CD collection and re-listen to all their music with new and educated ears. Their music will never have sounded so good."
--Curled Up With a Good Book

"Almost as if you're sitting across from them at the bar as they reminisce about the past...this book was the most fun I've had reading a book all year. Go get it!"
--Erlenmeyer's Mind

Praise for Primus:

"They were real musicians' musicians...Primus had their own thing, for sure. Nobody really does that Primus thing--they have their own personality, which is something difficult to do."
--Chad Smith, Red Hot Chili Peppers

"Primitive, animated, dinosaur, Halloween, trailerfunk. I felt Les was a kindred spirit. Someone I could learn from and collaborate with. Quick, schooled, humble, with an amazing musical lexicon and down home as hell, with a bent sense of humor."
--Tom Waits

Usually when the "alternative rock revolution" of the early 1990s is discussed, Nirvana's Nevermind is credited as the recording that led the charge. Yet there were several earlier albums that helped pave the way, including the Pixies' Doolittle, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Mother's Milk, Jane's Addiction's Nothing's Shocking, and especially Primus's 1991 album Sailing the Seas of Cheese.

This fascinating and beautifully curated oral history tells the tale of this truly one-of-a-kind band. Compiled from nearly fifty all-new interviews conducted by journalist/author Greg Prato--including Primus members past and present and many more fellow musicians--this book is sure to appeal to longtime fans of the band, as well as admirers of the musicians interviewed for the book.

Interviewees include: Tim Alexander, Trey Anastasio (Phish), Matthew Bellamy (Muse), Les Claypool, Stewart Copeland (The Police), Chuck D (Public Enemy), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Larry LaLonde, Geddy Lee (Rush), Mickey Melchiondo (Ween), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Matt Stone (South Park), Tom Waits, and many more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Get out of my way, I've got something to say... 11 septembre 2014

This book just arrived and I can't put it down. The definitive story of Primus told by the people who lived it. Essential reading for any fan of this amazing band.

"Over the Electric Grapevine" is written in the "oral history" format that is all the rage these days, and it is organized well so the story flows chronologically. Starting with Les in high school (with Kirk Hammett), the book takes us (almost) all the way to the present.

Great stories about the making of the albums, the ideas behind some of the songs, and the hi-jinks of touring. Sprinkled in are the observations of some of their peers and tour-/festival-mates, most of them fawning in admiration at the talent and influence of Messrs. Claypool, LaLonde, and Herb/Brain.

It includes a small section of pictures, a lot of which I had never seen before. This is an outstanding book that was put together with a lot of care.

I have been a fan of Primus since I seen their cameo in Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey on my 11 birthday. Now at 34 years old I still love them all same, if not more. A very underrated band who's story is both interesting and entertaining, I also enjoyed finding out about their recording styles and how the band has evolved. I would even recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories of the music scene.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Like all of Prato's books (I've read 'Grung is Dead 25 janvier 2015

Like all of Prato's books (I've read 'Grung is Dead,' 'Shannon Hoon and Blind Melon,' and 'Meet the Meat Puppets), 'Over the Electric Grapevine' proves to be a light yet engaging and insightful read. If you're a fan of Primus and any of Prato's work, I don't really see anyway you won't enjoy this book.
