Primus offshoot Beanpole releasing “lost” album (listen to “Pumpkin Pickin’ Time”)

beanpole

Music from a little heard Primus offshoot will finally see the light of day this month. Beanpole was a musical collaboration between Primus’ Les Claypool and Larry LaLonde, and Derek Greenberg and Adam Gates of Spent Poets, who let their freak flags fly in the studio in the ’80s and ’90s. “To get the vibe of recording a Beanpole song, ” LaLonde told Rolling Stone, “you have to place yourself in a secluded farm valley full of mutant hillbillies trying to recreate melodies that were found on a broken record of Disneyland ride music.” The tracks went unreleased for two decades but now an album’s worth of Beanpole’s music, titled All My Kin, will be released on August 31 via Sean Lennon’s Chimera Music. We’ve got the premiere of “Pumpkin Pickin’ Time,” a rather demented song which is like The Beatles, The Residents and weird cartoon music all thrown together on one haunted hayride. Listen to that, and a couple other tracks from the LP, below.

Meanwhile, Primus will be on tour this fall in the South, Southwest and West. All dates are listed below.
