Limited Edition Gold Vinyl LP Wrapped in a Gold Foil Jacket!
A Twisted Reimagining of the 1971 Classic!

Primus' Wonka-themed album, Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, made something that was truly their own while paying homage to the 1971 cinematic classic starring Gene Wilder.

"The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record,' says Primus frontman/bassist Les Claypool. I think like a good portion of the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the Willy Wonka movie – the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film [1971's Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, starring Gene Wilder] that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that's what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit…twisted them up a lot."

Gold Edition LP comes in a golden foil jacket and is pressed on gold colored vinyl. Limited edition.

While having their most celebrated drummer on hand adds an element of stability to what is a pretty far-out concept even for Primus, the addition of Bass and Dillon allows Primus to really push their sound to its creative limits, making Primus & the Chocolate Factory one of the band's oddest, yet most strangely compelling, releases to date.
