News! Les Claypool Is Coming to Your Town


Les Claypool is taking over the northern hemisphere as his summer tour started today May 26th in Charlotte, NC. This is the 2nd leg of his year-long tour in support of his critically acclaimed latest masterpiece OF FUNGI AND FOE out now on Prawn Song Records.

OF FUNGI AND FOE is the expansion of material Claypool has recorded over the past few years for the video game “Mushroom Men” and the motion picture “Pig Hunt”. Being inspired by these 2 projects Claypool decided to keep creating and turn it into an album. The song Mushroom Men on this release is a more in depth version of the theme song from the video game. Additionally a jam session with Gogol Bordello’s charismatic front-man Eugene Hutz turned into the track “Bite Out Of Life”. The band is comprised of Les Claypool on bass/vocals, Paulo Baldi on Drums (Cake), Mike Dillon on Percussion (Ani Difranco), and Sam Bass on Cello (Deadweight).

Special collectors’ addition of “OF FUNGI AND FOE” came out on vinyl May 12th. This is a MUST HAVE for all Les Claypool fans. This is a limited run so go to http://www.clubbastardo.com/ and get your copy~
